J.J. Barea tries an old playground trick on Hasheem Thabeet

It doesn't end very well.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are trying to hang with the Oklahoma City Thunder. J.J. Barea, sensing an opportunity to give his team an edge, busts out a move I haven't seen since second grade. It, uh, doesn't quite work as well on full-grown men.


H/T to @cjzero for video

For his next trick, Barea will attempt free throws by lobbing the ball underhanded.
