NBA Twitter had a field day during the Bucks vs Nets Game 3. With seconds to go in the game, Bruce Brown took an ill-advised shot, and people compared it to a Carlton Banks scene.
Brown takes the last shot against the Bucks in Game 3
Bruce Brown has done a stellar job in the Nets starting lineup since James Harden went down with an injury.
In Game 3 against the Bucks, the guard set a personal playoff high with 16 points in 38 minutes.
However, those heroics will be forgotten by most due to his play on the last possession.
Instead of finding Kevin Durant or Kyrie Irving with seconds to go in the fourth quarter, Brown found himself at the top of the key.
He drove towards the basket and ultimately missed the shot, resulting in the Nets losing the game 86-83.

Where did the Carlton Banks comparison come from?
NBA Twitter reacted to the possession by doing its customary thing and mocking Brown.
One particularly popular tweet compared the moment to a scene from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
The scene is from the episode ‘Courting Disaster’ when Will joins the school basketball team, which Carlton is already on.
Will becomes the star of the team, causing Carlton to become envious and the two becoming ultra competitive.
Enraged with jealousy, Carlton decides to steal the ball from Will and take the game’s winning shot, ultimately costing the team the game.
That’s why people were likening Bruce Brown to Carlton Banks.

It wasn’t just the one account poking fun over his ill-informed decision.
Most of NBA Twitter also chimed in with their thoughts.
Keep your chin up, Bruce.
