You know what short people love? When taller people rub their heads. Not only do they get reminded of their diminutive stature but they can feel like a child too!
It goes over as well as rubbing a pregnant woman’s stomach or poking a chubby guy’s belly button and asking him to make the Poppin’ Fresh squeal.
In normal circles, Brooklyn Nets coach Avery Johnson is of average height. That five-foot-10 frame is practically Lilliputian on the basketball court, as he was reminded on Tuesday night when he was on the receiving end of a head rub by Metta World Peace of the Los Angeles Lakers.
The former Mr. Ron Artest hit a big three-pointer in front of the Nets bench late in Tuesday’s game, then casually placed his left hand on Johnson’s head while jogging down the court. It was like he expected a genie to come out.
Johnson didn’t look pleased, nor could he have been thrilled when the Nets blew a lead in an eventual 95-90 loss.
World Peace finished with 17 points.
Thanks to Ball Don’t Lie for the heads up
