Lowry, who was being guarded by George Hill, attempted to nutmeg the Bucks defender… with his entire body. Yep, Lowry tried to go between Hill’s legs with not just the ball, but his whole body.
Needless to say, this “unique” maneuver didn’t work out very well as Lowry was whistled for an offensive foul on the play.
Take a look…
Did Lowry honestly at that moment think diving through Hill’s legs was the best way to go?
This is a six-time NBA All-Star, folks.
Lowry’s night at the Scotiabank Arena didn’t get much better after that move either as he ended up just 2-for-12 shooting with four turnovers and five personal fouls in the Raptors’ 108-97 loss.
Amazingly, this isn’t the first time a player has tried to dribble his entire body between an opposing player’s legs. J.J. Barea tried it once. It didn’t work for him either.
I am reminded of JJ Barea trying to go between Hasheem Thabeet's legs a few years ago, might have to dig up the video pic.twitter.com/gXnm8r8ZNv— CJ Fogler (@cjzero) February 26, 2020
As SB Nation pointed out, however, Nate Robinson did actually pull the move off in a G League game.
Of course, Twitter was quick to make numerous jokes at Lowry’s expense.
