VIDEO: Kid has meltdown after doing dab at Wizards-Bucks game

VIDEO: Kid has meltdown after doing dab at Wizards-Bucks game

The distinction of the saddest dab of all time no longer belongs to Rob Carlin. No, this one includes a subsequent meltdown by a child who may have been feeling some stagefright as part of the halftime show at the Wizards vs. Bucks game in Milwaukee on Sunday afternoon.

The kid was participating in an event called 'Dance for your Dinner.' First of all, that seems like a bit of an extreme competition to put a child through, if we are taking the title literally. But whether it was the pressure of not eating that night or not, the kid ended up with his hands over his face:

That's kind of hard to watch. Hopefully the kid wasn't too shaken up by it.

By the way, here's Carlin's dab, in case you didn't see it:

Actually, that was even worse than we remembered. Carlin may still hold the honor.

Why Scott Brooks is amazed by John Wall's, Bradley Beal's scouting abilities

When John Wall's and Bradley Beal's playing days are over -- whenever that may be -- they both might be well-suited for front office jobs. To a certain extent, they're already acting as high-level scouts, according to Washington Wizards coach Scott Brooks. 

The Wizards' stars -- who Beal previously said make up the NBA's best backcourt -- aren't just scouting their opponents around the league. Players of all different levels and around the globe are on their radar, which prompted Brooks to ask the obvious question about the two relatively new dads:

"When do they have time?"

Brooks sat down with NBC Sports Washington Wizards Insider Chris Miller on Monday and explained how closely Wall and Beal follow basketball players everywhere.

"The thing I love about John and Brad -- they love the game," Brooks said. "You can call them up. It could be high school players, it could be WNBA players, it could be college players, it could be European players -- they know them. It's like, don't you guys have a life? They know them."

Beal attended the Wizards' pre-draft workout on Monday, while Wall went to at least one similar workout in the past. 

Brooks specifically highlighted Beal's ability as a scout and speculated about his potential success in the future, should the guard pursue that avenue when he's done playing.

"Bradley can do it all," Brooks said. "He's not only a great player. He's gonna be a great coach and a great general manager."
