Best Bench Reactions Of The Season

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — We saw last week that “Bazemoring” was officially a thing, but it’s not the only thing. Reactions from the bench during NBA games are a crucial part of the game. From Kent Bazemore‘s poses to Patty Mills‘ towel-waving, even if they’re not between the lines getting buckets, bench guys can play an important role in keeping the spirits of their teammates elevated.

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Part of the fun in watching the Golden State Warriors turn up during the postseason was watching their bench, where players like Kent Bazemore showed their team spirit by getting up off the bench and celebrating whenever something good happened.

Golden State Warriors Pregame Dance Routine Revealed

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Big thanks to the NBA’s official YouTube channel, where they posted the following video of the Golden State Warriors getting ready for last night’s game in San Antonio. Obviously nobody knew the game was going to turn into an instant classic, but it didn’t stop them from preparing for the game by breaking into an impromptu dance-off. So you think you can dance? Don’t challenge rookie Kent Bazemore, who winds up the center of the circle. Obviously prepped him for making his game-winner that wasn’t quite enough.
