Illustration for article titled Look At This Fucking Hoopster: Isaiah Rider And Tyson Chandler Hang At Rock The Bells

An occasional feature in which we spotlight the ridiculous trend of recontextualized basketball jerseys. Today: Isaiah "Don't Call Me J.R." Rider and Tyson Chandler.

The Tyson Chandler one is getting a pass. Chandler went to Dominguez in LA, and Clippers fans are probably grateful he was traded for Elton Brand. Any other player, that's a hoopster. Still, the Rider is a doozy.

Player: Isaiah Rider
Team: Minnesota Timberwolves
Ubiquity: Low
Scene: Rock the Bells in Los Angeles, a sort of Lollapalooza for rap.
Unnecessarily Decimaled Score Out Of 10: 7.2
Analysis: I mean, just look at this. We have: a white kid wearing the jersey of a huge pot smoker at a music festival that was most likely overflowing with pot—Snoop Dogg performed "Doggystyle" in its entirety, dammit—and he's making that hand motion? In the air? In such a fashion so as to suggest he does not care?
Verdict: Regular-sized fucking hoopster
