Usain Bolt does LeBron James victory celebration

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — As I’m writing this, it strikes me that I don’t believe we have as yet an official name for LeBron James’ celebratory dance. You know the one I’m talking about, where LeBron takes exaggerated big steps and holds his hands out, palms down, and pretends to push down against the court. He’s been doing it for years, in games and commercials, but I don’t think it has a real name attached to it.

Because if it did have a name attached, it would be easier when doing posts like the one last week, where Carolina’s Cam Newton did LeBron’s move to celebrate scoring a touchdown. Or this post you’re reading, where we check out Jamaica’s Usain Bolt, who hit LeBron’s move after anchoring Jamaica’s recent win in the 4×100-meter relays at the World Championships in Beijing.

Usain Bolt Has Some Advice For Tony Parker

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last season during the All-Star Weekend in Houston, at one point I found myself on an NBA TV set sitting across from Usain Bolt, the Jamaican sprinter and fastest man on earth. Bolt was in Houston to play in the celebrity game at All-Star Weekend, and he was obviously serious about putting up a good performance.

So we know Bolt not only cares about basketball but considers himself to be pretty good at it. But in this video clip from a French talk show, we see Bolt not only calling out Spurs G Tony Parker, but also making (well, appearing to make) a couple of trick shots on a basket that seems to be mounted high upon the Egyptian Obelisk on the Champs-Élysées. A lot to process here…
