The NBA’s preseason is just about over, and you probably haven’t paid too much attention. Luckily, World Wide Wob has, and — oh my — these last two weeks have been full of hilarious moments and possessions of pure (and maybe rightful) disrespect.
As players condition their bodies for an upcoming grueling season, and adjust to their new teammates, a new series of lowlights have been born.
Here’s what you’ve missed:
Dirk Nowitzki tripped on absolutely nothing
Dirk Nowitzki takes charge vs. ghost pic.twitter.com/exHimA2MQ3— Rob Perez (@World_Wide_Wob) October 10, 2017
Nowitzki saw a dang ghost and stumbled and stumbled and stumbled until he finally took a seat. Hahahahahaha!
Even he embraced it, though:
Timber!!!!! https://t.co/sAdIluO10n— Dirk Nowitzki (@swish41) October 10, 2017
He even told reporters where they can find the video.

Jarrett Jack threw the worst full-court heave ever
BAHAHHAHA Jarrett Jack with quite possibly the worst full-court heave in NBA history pic.twitter.com/uzacAYbNjP— Rob Perez (@World_Wide_Wob) October 10, 2017
He’s a Knick!
Chris Paul showed ZERO RESPECT for Andre Roberson’s jumper
This some A1 disrespect right here, CP3 leaves Roberson open on purpose, small-waves him as he lines up 3, screams “HELL NAH” after airball pic.twitter.com/71c6862Og2— Rob Perez (@World_Wide_Wob) October 4, 2017
CP3 left him wide open, jokingly swiped the air, then yelled “Hell nah,” as Roberson air-balled.
Andre Drummond showed even less respect for Jonas Valanciunas
Damn. Andre Drummond with zero respect for Jonas Valancuinas’ jumper. pic.twitter.com/HT2PfI9Jtl— Rob Perez (@World_Wide_Wob) October 10, 2017
He gave the same swipe in the air that Paul did to Roberson.
Hassan Whiteside totally mocked Kemba Walker’s foul-call strategy
LMAO Hassan Whiteside imitating Kemba Walker and how he exaggerates contact to the ref pic.twitter.com/czGk7BD0KQ— Rob Perez (@World_Wide_Wob) October 9, 2017
Whiteside is too much. Hahahaha!
C.J. McCollum ruined Justin Jackson’s ankles

Welcome to the league, rookie.
At least he joked about it.
