Tunisia’s basketball team lost to the United States yesterday by the slim margin of 110-63, which isn’t exactly close. But when you realize they were 54-point underdogs, it changes your perspective.
Tunisian forward Mohamed Hdidane was so thrilled to get his ass whooped by the Americans that he had Kobe Bryant sign his shoes in the post-game handshake line. The kicks, of course, will look awesome next to the poster of Kevin Durant that hangs over his bed.
Yeah, it’s a pretty Bush League move from Hdidane, but you can’t really blame him. The competition in his domestic league is probably slightly less iconic than the Black Mamba.
