I have been following this story for a while now. The deal is that Celtics forward, Brandon Bass, is learning to swim…at age 28. Why? So that other kids will learn this useful life skill. That’s all well and good, but I’m not sure if Brandon knew what he was getting himself into. We are well over a month into this charity event, and Brandon still can’t swim. Let’s take a look.
Looking out of place would be an understatement here. Kids goggles on his head and the the classic “I’m fucked” look on his face.
Followed by Bass swimming towards the arms of his instructor. Do you think he freaks out if he can’t touch the bottom? By the panicked look on his face I can tell he does. I taught swim lessons for a while and I can tell you that kids like Bass are the worst to deal with. Always needing to be held while in the deep end and shit. Crying, throwing fits, just completely out of hand. Maybe he just needs a sink or swim situation to finally get this whole swimming thing through his over-sized head. Just toss him in the deep end and see what happens. Worst case scenario, Celtics gain a little cap space.
Taking bets! Sink or Swim?
PS- We can parlay the bet with whether or not he takes another kid down with him.
