Cole Anthony goes viral for gross moment during Rising Stars Challenge

Cole Anthony mooning an opponent

Cole Anthony was definitely out of pocket at Friday’s Rising Stars Challenge.

The NBA All-Star Weekend event introduced a new format this year. Instead of just one game, three separate games were played. Each one had the “Elam Ending,” which debuted last year in the All-Star Game. The Orlando Magic guard Anthony was on Team Worthy for a semifinal contest against Team Isiah. As Memphis Grizzlies guard Desmond Bane shot a free throw to hit the target score of 50 for Team Isiah, Anthony tried to distract Bane by … pulling down his shorts and mooning Bane.

The nasty moment went viral, and Anthony explained his actions after the game. “I do what it takes for the win,” Anthony hilariously tweeted.

Unfortunately for Anthony, Bane was unfazed and sank the free throw for the win. But at least Anthony can say that he … did his best for his team.

We once saw a mascot pull off the exact same distraction tactic at the free-throw line and even get into trouble for it. With Anthony however, getting roasted on Twitter for the gross move will probably be punishment enough.
