Indiana Pacers star Oshae Brissett threw out some serious disrespect to the Charlotte Hornets during the Play-tournament.
While there may have been a bit of controversy at first, the NBA community has come to adore the concept of the play-in tournament. With the tournament kicking off very recently, the Hornets faced off against the Pacers. And, something Oshae Brissett said, just about summed up the game for both teams that participated.
Indiana held the lead for the whole game, and after a point, maintained a lead of 30 points. And as it was going on, while his teammates were being a bit low-key about things, Brissett had quite a bit to say about the opposing team.
Oshae Brissett was sick of playing against “bum a**es” during the clash between the Pacers and Hornets
The Charlotte Hornets embarrassed themselves during this clash. The game never looked close and ended with a score of 144-117. A massive reason behind this was the utter lack of acceptable defense.
It was clear that the zone system did not work, but it seems no one told head coach James Borrego, because the team never made any permanent changes. And with every opposition drive being over-committed on, the Pacers had a ton of open threes and took full advantage.
After making one such open shot from beyond the arc, Oshae Brissett had quite a bit to say about the Hornets. Take a look.

“Get these bum a**es out of here!”
It is hard to argue with those words when you’re down by 30 in the third quarter. However, it must be said that the Hornets are still a young team.
As many have pointed out, the franchise played like it was a regular-season game. Learning the intensity of the postseason will be massive towards the players’ development. And hopefully, this fun team can show some real substance in the future.
As for the Pacers though, after such an explosive start, fans will be looking forward to what comes next for the franchise.
