Today, We Get To Appreciate The Funniest Trophy In Sports

Today, the United States Basketball Writers Association gave an award to the most outstanding player in men’s college basketball, as it has done every year since 1959. In 2005, the USBWA commissioned a trophy of Hall-of-Famer Oscar Robertson to represent the award, and so was born the Oscar Robertson Trophy, the most hilarious damn trophy in all of sports.

The trophy was modeled after one of the most iconic photos of Robertson, but as you’ll see, photos don’t always translate well into statues.

Nice try, Frank.
