This time Jackie brings the ball in low, like a tardy student running to his next class carrying an armload of textbooks. Puzzled, the State player takes a half-hearted slap at the ball, like an afterschool bully would put one hand on the pile of schoolbooks clutched close to a smaller kid's chest, pushing and prodding them to fall to the ground.

The crowd din crescendos, and even the home court partisans scream their approval.
