A cat owner trained his little bundle of fluff to play defense in the paint and captured some of the footage of “Larry Birdeater” in action.

This cat makes us want to yell “Boomshakalaka” and dunk a basketball while on fire. NBA Jam reference anyone? No?

Anyway, if this guy can teach other furballs to run a 1-4 formation, box out and rebound then a cancelled NBA season won’t matter. We can start the ABA. The Adorable Basketball Association. It would easily beat the WNBA in ratings.
