Slap of the Day

Hopefully not a repost…

Super slap level 9

That’s gotta be fake or acted out somehow. I don’t know if an open hand slap from that close could knock someone down. But I could be mistaken.

Legend has it one year after the Utah Jazz knocked the Los Angeles Lakers out of the playoffs, Greg Ostertag was talking smack on Shaq. Ironically, the next year, the Jazz and Lakers meet in the first game of the season. Lakers are ending their practice, Jazz are coming on. Shaq goes over to Ostertag and says “Hey Greg, I got something for you” and slaps Greg on the face and knocks him down. Don’t know how true this is, but coming from Shaq, it would probably be pretty powerful.

I dunno man, that sounded real solid and that guy hit the floor with a lot of force. Even if it was fake, there’s some carry over with that shit.

If that dude wasn’t actually out, he’s a hella ballsy actor, I couldn’t throw myself to the concrete like that.
