Andre Roberson went 3-21 from the stripe following OKC’s series loss to the Rockets. Houston used an interesting strategy to combat a quick OKC offense towards the end. Fouling Roberson allowed Houston to slow down Westbrook and keep points off the board. This tactic is known as the Hack-a-Shaq strategy, named after the late, great Shaquile O’Neal. But after Roberson’s performance on Tuesday, the NBA sent out an official memo renaming the strategy “Bug-a-Scrub.”
We were able to catch up with Roberson after the game and ask him a few questions.
Q: How honored are you to be forever associated with the Bug-a-Scrub strategy?
A: “Seriously, why would you even ask me this question? Bug-A-Scrub isn’t even a thing. Is this dude for real?”
Q: Well, it kind of is. On another note, let us into the life of a “Journeyman.”
A: You do realize I’ve only been with OKC. Alright, get this f*ckhead out of here. He ain’t know shit!
Q: Okay Andre, but let me ask you one last question. If Shaq were with us today, rest his soul, how do you think he would feel about Hack-a-Shaq being renamed after you?
A: What do you mean if Shaq was here? Dude was doing the halftime show last night. Are you f*cking kidding me? You think the dude’s dead? F*ck you and your sorry ass, someone get this dude out of the locker room. Security!”
Clearly, Roberson has a lot on his mind after that dismal performance. His legacy will forever lie with the “Bug-a-Scrub” Strategy. Lucky for OKC, we have reports that General Manager, Sam Presti, is a huge late 90s R&B fan. We are sure he is going to take the wise words of his favorite band, TLC, to heart and next year, the Thunder don’t want no scrubs.
