Chris Paul nutmegs Carlos Boozer

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — There’s a term in soccer called a “nutmeg,” where a player with the ball kicks it through a defender’s legs, either as a pass or a shot. It’s equal parts embarrassing and impressive, and if you’re on the receiving end of the nutmeg, you’re left feeling pretty much helpless.

In last night’s Clippers/Lakers game, Chris Paul grabbed a ball and took off on a fast break, only to find Carlos Boozer blocking his way. What to do? How about this…

    Rubio had one a while back on an actually good defender.

    on an actual* good defender

  3. Michael says:

    Both work: ‘actually’ as he used it modifies just ‘good’; whereas ‘actual’ modifies the whole noun phrase ‘good defender’. Compare: a birdwatcher (in a garden in which exist many fake birds as well as many only apparently blue but real birds) saw, against the odds, an actual blue bird that was an actually blue bird.
