It seems as if Anthony Davis was reaching for a SpaceX rocket or something early in Friday night’s game against his former New Orleans Pelicans squad.

It has to be seen to be believed. We’re not even kidding.

NBA players have been defying gravity since Michael Jordan’s prime. But this is next-level stuff right here. Albert Einstein would be confused by what took place in the first quarter at the Staples Center.

Glass half full and stuff.
