NBA players are as confused as you on why Seahawks would pass with game on line
It was a strange call. A bad call.
If you were a Seattle Seahawk fan (or just were invested in them) you yelled it at the television in your living room or at your friends in the bar — Seattle had arguably the best short yardage back in the NFL waiting for a handoff to try to win them the Super Bowl and beat the Patriots, why throw a slant pass into a crowded line of scrimmage?
You weren’t alone — NBA players were tweeting out their confusion and frustration as well. Starting with Seattle native Jamal Crawford, who expressed the pain of a city.
Damn................. Why didn't we just hand It to the best back in the league??????????????? Give him three chances to score!— 🏁 Jamal Crawford (@JCrossover) February 2, 2015
Jesus Himself the only person that would have kept me from giving marshawn lynch the ball and He would have had to come down and tell me.— elfrid payton (@elfrid) February 2, 2015
Lil man said 'no way they throw it, that would be the dunmbest call ever'. He's 7— andre (@andre) February 2, 2015
Even guys who grew up watching soccer were even confused.
But not every NBA player was sad.
