This week’s top five NBA funny moments

With the NBA now in full swing, we take a look at the top five funniest moments from the week of basketball action.

Number five:

From the Celtics' 99-83 win over the Milwaukee Bucks, Kelly Olynyk seemingly loses all control of his body after a crossover from Jabari Parker. 

Number four:

The Celtics get another mention on this list, this time Isaiah Thomas forgets what sport he's playing – and which team he is on – by tackling his own team-mate on a pick-and-roll gone wrong.

Number three:

Robin Lopez might have swapped the Portland Trail Blazers for the New York Knicks, but his war on mascots continued ahead of New York's win over the Toronto Raptors. RIP Toronto Raptor. 

Number two:

The LA Lakers have been in somewhat comical form this season, having won just one game in seven attempts. And there recent form was summed up from this one woeful play in their 101-88 loss to the Miami Heat as they tried to avoid a shot-clock violation. 

Number one:

Kevin Durant is undoubtedly one of the best players in the NBA, with unparalleled ball-handling and footwork. One thing that's been overlooked, though, is the Oklahoma Thunder forward's use of his butt to set-up plays, as shown with this amazing behind-the-back butt-pass to assist Enes Kanter in Sunday's 124-103 win over the Phoenix Suns.
