Pistons' Richard Hamilton stunned when nephew informs him Pistons made playoffs

From the Wait 'til this Year Humor Vault

DETROIT--Detoit Pistons guard Richard Hamilton was incredulous Thursday when his nephew informed him at an annual family cookout that his team had qualified for the NBA playoffs. It took 10-year-old Stephen nearly 15 minutes to convince Hamilton the Pistons were moving on to the postseason.

"That's cute," Hamilton said at first, as he playfully tousled Stephen's hair. "But we weren't even .500 this year, buddy. Bad teams don't get to go to the playoffs."

An awkward conversation ensued, with Stephen getting frustrated by Hamilton's ignorance while Hamilton grew increasingly annoyed at having to educate his young nephew regarding his team's ineptitude. Stephen eventually brought Hamilton inside to his family's computer, utilizing the Internet to prove his point.

Hamilton was excited, but only for a moment. After realizing the Pistons would be facing the Cavaliers, he began sulking, bringing the mood of the whole event way down. He didn't even finish his grandmother's potato salad, despite having earlier declared it his "favorite thing in the whole world."


  1. I think Rip enjoys his grandma's sweet potato the most!
