Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will likely find himself on the next edition of Shaqtin’ a Fool.

The Lakers guard tried to pull off the Tracy McGrady off-the-glass, alley-oop to himself in Friday night’s game against the Clippers, and it did *not* go well. Caldwell-Pope missed the backboard entirely, and instead hit the bottom of the shot clock for a turnover.


Caldwell-Pope did actually put together a solid overall game (14 points on 6-of-11 shooting and 7 rebounds), but the Clippers came away with the 121-106 win in Blake Griffin’s return to the lineup (he had a game-high 24 points). Griffin had been out for a month after suffering a knee injury.
