BADGER HATE WEEK: And Now, Sam Dekker Fails On A Breakaway Against The Knicks

One of the more spectacular basketball fails that you’ll ever see, and it’s by a Badger.

NBA: Houston Rockets at New York Knicks
Look! Even the headline picture is of Dekker losing the ball out of bounds! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

After helping the Wisconsin Badgers to two straight Final Fours, Sam Dekker left school a year early to enter the NBA Draft. He was selected #18 overall by the Houston Rockets in the 2015 NBA Draft, but played in just three games his first season before missing the rest of the year due to injury.

Dekker’s yet to miss a game in the 2016-17 season, but, maybe, just maybe, he doesn’t quite have his sea legs underneath him yet after all of that time off. This happened to him on November 2, 2016, during the Rockets’ fifth game of the season.

Can we get a wide angle on that? YES WE CAN!

Can we get a different angle? YES WE CAN!

How about a still frame at the moment the ball hits his face? YES WE CAN!

That’s never going to stop being funny.
