Magic’s Jameer Nelson would do celebration again, despite fine


Orlando Magic point guard hit a big shot against the Chicago Bulls this past week and celebrated with a very suggestive motion. It mimics the celebration made famous by both Sam Cassell on the basketball court and Dennis Haysbert in the movie “Major League 2.” The league no longer accepts this celebration as a family friendly moment in a basketball game and has been fining players for celebrating this way.

Nelson was slapped with a $15,000 fine after his celebration, but it doesn’t mean he wouldn’t do it again if the moment happens. , the point guard said he’d do it again for the Magic fans to get excited in such an emotional moment.?

After nailing a fallaway jump shot over 6-foot-11 Bulls center to tie the score late in regulation, the 6-foot-1 Nelson ran back towards the Magic bench cupping his hands in a gesture that had been made famous — or infamous — by the now-retired Sam Cassell.

“I accept the fine,” Neleason.The campaign is currently suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.The Lega announced:”Today brought together the representatives of the clubs in video conLucien Agoume.Conte is pleased to have handed both teens their Inter debut.He said, “Those two have had the opportunity to train with us and have had a significant development, especially Esposito, but also Agoume.“They are young, they have deserferences for the meeting. The meeting dealt with all the topics on the agenda, but they son said Friday at the Magic’s shootaround before their game against the Charlotte Bobcats. “Hopefully I won’t get emotional again. If I have to pay $15,000 for our fans to get excited I’ll do it again.”

Nelson came within a point of tying his career high when he poured in 31 against the Bulls. The 30 field goals he shot were a season high for any Magic player, and his 13 3-point attempts tied ‘s total on Dec. 3 in a double-overtime loss at Philadelphia.

“If I offended anyone, I’m sorry,o Perinetti says they were offered Roma star Nicolo Zaniolo.Perinetti revealed Monchi offered Zaniolo to his club in January.“On deadline day of the last transfer window, [Federico] Balzaretti called me saying that Monchi wanted to talk to me,” Per” he said. “Basketball is a fun game, and you get emotional. You never see my emotions, but you did that game.”

What’s the big deal about a celebration that could just be a player miming awkwardly carrying giant bags of dog food?

Keep fighting the good fight, Jameer. Many of us are behind you.?
