Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez does a lot of great things on the court. Then again, there are also times when it seems he has no clue what he’s doing.
Lopez’s latest brain fart came in the second quarter of the Bucks’ game against the Dallas Mavericks at Fiserv Forum on Friday. The 7-foot center was at the top of the key and tried to play point guard for some reason. The move, of course, backfired greatly.
The one-time All-Star faked the hand-off and uncharacteristically tried to make a move off the dribble. Hilarity ensued a few seconds later.
Here’s the Shaqtin’ a Fool-worthy moment:

It remains unclear if Brook Lopez was taking a floater or throwing a ridiculously high lob to an imaginary Bucks teammate. By the looks of it, even a giant like Boston Celtics center Tacko Fall would have had no chance of catching that “pass”.
For good measure, Lopez even argued that a foul should have been called following that embarrassing blunder. The Bucks, meanwhile, will likely forgive Lopez for that epic blooper since he continues to be a solid anchor for the team this season. The 32-year-old slotman is averaging 9.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.7 blocks, while shooting 41.9 percent from the field and 36.1 from deep in 12 games so far.
Be careful next time, Brook. Shaq is always watching.
