The Los Angeles Clippers suffered a disappointing 128-115 loss at the hands of the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night. For his part, Clippers big man Ivica Zubac came out of the game with an embarrassing experience that he probably wants to forget as soon as humanly possible.
Zubac may have been eager to take the game on Friday night. While the players exchanged pleasantries before the game, Zubac was placed in the center circle awaiting an announcement. To his dismay, the Timberwolves leaders canceled their midcourt dance routine with him right in the middle. The poor man simply did not know what to do:

That is very funny. You have to credit Zubac for not trying to get out of the loop. He knew he would ruin the dance number if he interfered with the cheerleaders’ block. At one point, the 7-foot big man decided to just leave the number. I wonder if there is a close-up photo of Zubac’s face at that exact moment. That would be expensive.
Unfortunately for the Clippers center, the hilarious clip has now gone viral. The fact that it seems like he suddenly showed up and joined the dance routine may have something to do with that.
Going forward, Ivica Zubac will probably want to wait a little longer before moving up to the middle rotation before being released. After all, he wouldn’t want to be stuck in his ugly situation in the future. Again, maybe this was the plan all along.
