Kobe Bryant has done it … Caron Butler has done it … and now the originator of the NBA’s “Big Balls” dance thinks it’s high time the league let guys do it in peace … without the huge fine. We got Sam Cassell out at Mastro’s and asked him about the move he made famous … the imaginary cuffing of huge huevos whenever you hit a big shot. Sam’s been busting the move since back in his Minnesota Timberwolves days … but now the league has labeled it a no-no … issuing huge fines to offending players. Check out the clip … Sam has a message for the league — LET THE BALLS GO … saying fining a guy huge money for a little expression is kinda … whack.
Wall admitted he and Beal “have a tendency to dislike each other on the court.” Beal acknowledged he and his back-court mate “lose sight of the fact that we need each other.” With these confessions, suddenly fans’ hopes of the duo matching the dynamic of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson gave way to the fear of an unraveling more akin to Jason Kidd and Jim Jackson, Larry Johnson and Alonzo Mourning, Chris Paul and everyone. “They got to figure it out,” said Clippers assistant coach Sam Cassell, who was a Wizards assistant from 2009 to 2014. “I’m not going to [say] who’s wrong or who’s right, but they got to figure it out.”
Crawford: Sam Cassell, I loved him. One of my all-time favorite guys. And he’s pissed off at me. And he’s going back into the huddle. And I’m watching him. And he’s cursing me as he’s going in for the timeout. I mean, he’s annihilating me. And I don’t call a T. His back is to me. But I know he’s annihilating me. So I’m saying to myself at the time, “Joe, don’t deal with it, just [let it go].” I start walking toward the huddle, and [his teammate] is going, “Joey’s coming, Sam. Joey’s coming.” And Sam’s going like this: “F–k Joey Crawford!” (Crawford is laughing as he repeats this.) I didn’t laugh. It would be unprofessional. And I didn’t even hit him with a T, honest to God. Those kinds of guys, I just got the biggest kick out of. Sam was one of those kids who didn’t care what he said. He thought he was right—he was right.
