Of all the pranks we see across professional and collegiate athletics, the popcorn in the car gag has to be one of the worst. As you can see from the photo above that Deron Williams tweeted, Nets second-year “rookie” MarShon Brooks recently fell victim to the mother of all car pranks. According to Nets Daily, the Brooklyn veterans have decided that since last season was shortened because of the lockout, Brooks is still considered a rookie for the first 16 games of the upcoming season.
Below is a photo of MarShon looking pretty flustered about the whole thing, but I highly doubt he took it as hard as Kenyon Martin did when his teammates did the same to his car a couple years back.
