In his defense, he'd terrify children no matter what he wore.

Half Tebow, half Dolphins misery, all awesome.
Organized by Brian Scalabrine, Eddy Curry and Mike Bibby, the Basketball Laugh Track World Tour will stop in NBA D-League cities, as well as Kabul, Afghanistan, Libya, and the tiny European nation of Luxembourg.
"Hardcore basketball fans watch the NBA for more than just the stars," said Scalabrine at a press conference in Conference Room C at the Fort Wayne, Indiana airport Best Western. "They also watch to laugh at players like me and Eddy and Mike. Our ineptitude helps them relate to NBA players. We bring laughter to millions each winter."
Most tour stops will feature scrimmages between the LOLstars, which also include known NBA commodities Steve Novak, Kwame Brown and Sebastian Telfair, while other locations will pit the LOLstars against the Washington Generals or give fans in attendance a chance to beat them.
"I hope we only play half-court," said Curry. "What? They are full-court games? Ah, crap."

When I was in my 8th grade year of basketball we were playing our first game of the season. We weren't expected to be good (we ended the season in 2nd place however). We were getting killed and as we enter the locker room at halftime our assistant coach is yelling and screaming. He then goes on to shout that we have nine good players on this team and we should not be losing. (I guess he forgot about the tenth kid who was by far the worst player on our team.)
He then went on to call his own son a "pussy" and, as soon as the assistant coach stormed out, our head coach couldn't do anything but laugh. Best halftime speech of my life.
My senior year of football my team was expected to be really good. For whatever reason, we got off to a bad start and entered our fifth game 2-2 and were losing at halftime by 10 points. During the halftime speech, our head coach told everyone to get quiet "because it's time for some soul searching". About 10 seconds into it, someone audibly farted. Without breaking stride, my coach said: "Well, at least someone on this team is busting their ass." Everyone broke up laughing, we won the game and ended up winning districts.
