West Virginia Players Mock Kentucky with John Wall Dance After Upset Win
West Virginia pulled off the unthinkable by beating top-seeded Kentucky in the East Regional finals on Saturday night. Because Kentucky was the favorite having lost just two games all season, the Mountaineers players were in an extra celebratory mood following the win. What better way to show off what you accomplished than by ridiculing your slayed opponent? As I learned via Diamond Leung at the College Basketball Nation Blog, some of the West Virginia players began mocking Kentucky by doing the John Wall Dance — a bicep flex and twist that the Kentucky freshman popularized. Luckily for us, The Big Lead found a video of the celebration for us to see. Here’s the video of the West Virginia players doing the John Wall dance and skip to the :45 mark for the fun:
Although I like to see players win and lose with class, I can understand why they want to celebrate an achievement. You just better make sure you can take it before you can dish it. That memo goes for LeBron James, Shawne Merriman, and LaDainian Tomlinson, amongst others.
