Jusuf Nurkic Threw A Pacers Fan’s Phone To The Moon In A Failed Attempt At Intimidation

Jusuf Nurkic is one of the baddest dudes in the NBA. An absolute hogmolly who is more military trained grizzly bear than human athlete. And he got put in a box by this drunk Pacers fan.

I cannot tell a lie. Nurkic tried his best to intimidate him to the full extent of Adam Silver’s law. I imagine that phone toss will cost him a crisp $50,000. And this kid didn’t fold, bend, nor flinch a muscle throughout the entire ordeal. Now this could be big “my dad is a lawyer” energy, but he’s already courtside. Is a mauling here really worth the money? I’d posit that no, no it is not. And he risked that to look tough in a video and didn’t come up snake eyes. A modern miracle if I’ve ever seen one. 

Shoutout the security guard who was the most relieved human on the planet the second his slight nudge convinced Nurkic to walk away. Because if that didn’t work he was out of moves and that kid was about to be folded into an Auntie Anne’s pretzel with the quickness.
