In the final seconds of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s win over the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night, an official somehow ended up on Derek Fisher’s back. Fisher and Patty Mills went to the ground to fight for a loose ball, and one of the refs who came into to break up the ensuing scrum ended up standing over the veteran point guard.
When Fisher tried to get up, the ref ended up straddling him like he was a horse. He appeared to ride Fisher for a couple seconds before hopping off his back and letting him get up. Naturally, that inspired SB Nation’s Brian Floyd to create a clip of the hilarious situation set to Ginuwine’s “Pony.”
And the internet strikes again. The world just wasn’t as funny a place before we could do stuff like this.
