Rui Hachimura got kicked so hard in the groin by a teammate, the Wizards rookie needed surgery.
That’s pretty awful. Yet, there’s still a new contender for the worst moment of Hachimura’s season.
At All-Star Weekend in Chicago for Rising Stars, Hachimura faced a kid in a Pop-A-Shot-like game. It didn’t go well for Hachimura.
Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News:
This kid just smoked Rui Hachimura 3 times in a row in Pop-A-Shot in front of Allen Iverson. Rui thought there was something wrong with his hoop, and made the kid switch sides.

An NBA player losing to a kid is bad enough. Twice, we’re entering troubling territory.
But claiming the game is cheating, demanding to switch sides and still getting routed?
That’s a ROUGH look.
