Look, I hate to point this out.... But what exactly is the crime here? Playing basketball naked? Seriously? Is this a real problem?

Chain Smokes Freely: Destructor: DigitalDirt: Mental issues, help the guy out.

He simply has a desire to be naked and play basketball. Is that so wrong he needs to be... "corrected"...?

Is clothing really a serious consideration for basketball playing?

Follow up question: Would you feel the same way with a level 10 female super-model?

Don't you think it's a stretch to suggest this dude is an exhibitionist? If I had to guess ... bath salts. And the same scenario would have played out if it were 10 female super models, except 100 more cops would have responded and they'd be all smiles.


I have grown up around gay people my whole life, my parents never shielded me, they told me who they are, why they feel that way and that was just a fact that I understood my whole life.

This guy, I don't think he is gay at all, a normal gay guy would never do this, I think this is a straight guy with mental issues.

Oddly enough, there is an actual current article about a naked man running around.

If I saw it happen I'm pretty sure I'd think there was a problem.

berylman: DigitalDirt:Not that funny but very memorable because my mom's name is Michelle and I have a desert tortoise.
[Fark user image 850x912]
/He is a tortoise I know, just going with the joke
//His name is Speedy, cat is Izzy

I have no clue why but Percy Sledge's "When a man loves a woman" started playing in my mind but I overwrote the lyrics to be "When a tortoise loves a feline".
/my mind has become a broken juke box


May everyone please join me in wishing this person a bucket full of hamsters.

Ancient Greeks used to compete naked all the time. Maybe he's a time traveler training for the olympics.

Mad_Radhu: Was he perfecting his Helicopter Dunk?

/Too soon?


Not too soon, every once in a while I re-watch his 81 point game.  I am not even a big NBA fan but that was amazing.

Damn ... Rob Fox has mad writing skills. That was a pretty funny read.

Naked baller guy clearly has mental problems. Hopefully he gets the help he needs.
