In case you missed it last night, Orlando Magic center and MVP candidate Dwight Howard had a classic live TV moment on ESPN. During an interview and discussing Andrew Bynum’s “length” Howard had to take a second to ‘pause’ himself:
A lot of people may think saying ‘pause’ to negate the sexual connotation of a comment is unnecessary (and it may very well be) but you gotta admit that in the right situation it’s damn funny. Howard has always been known to be a bit of a clown and a jokster so to see that he has maintained his sense of humor amongst all the technical fouls and frustrations he has expressed this season is a good thing.
And if you think this was the first time ‘pause’ was used in a live interview then check out this clip of Gus Johnson the Great hitting Spike Lee with the calmest, most professional pause in history:
No way you can convince me that isn’t hilarious.
