The answer is no. Very credible sources tell us that it is, in fact, the inner lining of the player’s basketball shorts, which I can totally see now. We were all wrong.
***END OF UPDATE***
My thought? Yes. Some of my coworkers’ thoughts? No. This sack of balls is causing more controversy than that of the 2015 AFC Championship Game, and it’s time we got to the bottom of this fiasco.
Ahead of their November 5 game against the La Cité Coyotes, the Seneca College Sting sent out a graphic via their dance team’s Instagram account to hype everyone up for the matchup. It worked, too — the Sting won 63-60. But it wasn’t the almost assuredly subpar basketball that got everyone talking; it was what appeared to be Sting guard and NBL Canada (the Canadian NBA) prospect Dimitri Lim’s bat wing.
Twitter user @ElijahMarcella managed to take a screenshot of the promo post before it was removed.
For those of you who don’t wanna see sack on a Wednesday, just know that under that sailboat there is a little bit of non-leg skin where shorts meet thigh. If you’re somebody who likes looking at potential nutsacks, you can check out the uncensored screenshot of the Instagram post on Elijah’s Twitter here.
My reasoning behind why I think that is indeed a ballbag is simple — what else could it be? That’s not his leg, and it’s not his dick. Unless Lim sat in gum right before the photo was taken, that’s straight nut we’re seeing. My coworkers’ reasoning is less sound, in my opinion, but it still valid. They say “who freeballs while balling?” Going commando while shooting hoops is like having sex in the same room as your grandma — you can do it, sure, but it’s A) going to be uncomfortable, B) can lead to unwanted people catching a glimpse of your testes, and C) means you’re a psychopath. I don’t think it’s as uncommon as they do, though.
