Leandro Barbosa Killer Olympic Crossover On Andres Nocioni [VIDEO]
Sometimes, getting crossed over is actually worse than getting dunked on. Brazilian point guard Leandro Barbosa makes Argentinian forward Andres Nocioni look silly in this video.
Having Andres Nocioni attempt to guard Leandro Barbosa is simply unfair. Leandro Barbosa is known as the Brazilian Blur for a reason; he's really quick. Andres Nocioni isn't nicknamed the blur, speedy, Mr. Quicks or anything related to speed and quickness because he's not exactly fast.
Nocioni got crossed over in the final two minutes of Argentina's 82-77 win against Brazil on Wednesday. Yes, Nocioni got embarrassed on this play, but at least his team advanced to the semifinals to face Team USA. The U.S. men's basketball team beat Australia 119-86 to advance to the semifinals. Team USA will face Argentina on Friday at 4:00pm ET.
