P. Diddy was used as a prop in one of the most painfully scripted dunks the contest has seen. Diddy did a little skit with Rockets forward Chase Budinger where he said his favorite basketball movie was White Men Can’t Jump. Budinger then came out looking like Woody Harrelson in the movie with his hat turned backward. Diddy then tossed a blind lob to Budinger who jumped over Diddy. The skit was painful to watch, but the dunk was strong. Here is a video of the Chase Budinger dunk from P. Diddy:
What is it with Houston and their aggression toward the Pac-10? First it was the Cougar mascot getting into it with the Oregon Duck mascot. Now it’s Aubrey Coleman stomping on Chase Budinger’s face in the game between Houston and Arizona on Saturday. Thanks to the magic of Yahoo!, nearly four million people have seen this video. If you haven’t, make sure you become four million and one.
Coleman has since apologized saying he didn’t mean to do it and that he’s sorry. I can give the forgiveness but can’t buy that he didn’t mean to do it. That looked pretty darn intentional to me. No wonder Chase was so peeved.
