Martell Webster, John Wall do baseball pantomime

Reports have been circulating for weeks now about John Wall and Martell Webster’s new introductory routine, in which Webster pitches a fake baseball, and Wall crushes it with a fake bat and then pimps it for a moment at imaginary home plate, and then Wall dances just a smidge and people laugh.

I hadn’t seen it, though, until now. So even though it apparently debuted during back-to-back wins over Orlando and Brooklyn, I have to show it to you following a 1-3 road trip that has some fans glum again. So try to separate the road trip from the fact that this is an excellent way to introduce yourself before a game.

Also, kind of amazing that Wall would willingly invite comparisons to his own pitching performance.

Also, have to hope that Colin Cowherd doesn’t get upset.
