Ali With the Arm Drag on Blake Griffin

Speaking of having a future in World Wrestling Entertainment…Ameer Ali executes a perfect arm drag takedown on Oklahoma’s Blake Griffin in Thursday’s opening-round contest of the NCCA tournament between 2-seeded OU and 15-seeded Morgan State. The problem is, this is basketball and not wrestling, so Ali was immediately ejected for the blatant move. Griffin didn’t have a problem with it, and wisely walked right away as soon as he got up. Oklahoma was up 16 at the time and won 82-54 on the strength of Griffin’s dominant performance: 31 minutes, 28 points on 11-of-12 shooting, 13 rebounds. When he’s done with basketball, perhaps Ali should take up some training time with Afa the Wild Samoan…

Ali told NewsOK that the move was just a “misunderstanding.” Sure, and Griffin is going to fall to 20th in the NBA draft this year. MouthPiece Sports chalked it up to everyone’s strategy this season on Blake Griffin, to “beat the eff out of him.” And Deadspin felt it was necessary, for a 15-seed like Morgan State to show some moxie.
