The 2016 NBA Playoffs is well underway and so far, everything's going according to most prediction articles, save for the one-too-many Game 1 blowouts.

Competition is more cutthroat at this point, with superstars going no-nonsense mode to lead their respective teams to the Promised Land.

There are times though, when some of these players turn in dumbfounding moments that make us question their postseason drive. These are sequences we wish would not, in any way, reflect our basketball heroes' pursuit of this season's Larry O'Brien NBA Championship Trophy:

Too soon

Top comment: "LeBron thinks he plays for the Warriors lol"

Maybe LeBron James dreamt of the Cleveland Cavaliers opening its first round matchup with a 106-101 win over the Detroit Pistons the night before. Still, it was a cringe-worthy sight at that moment, one that could rival Swaggy P's infamous turnaround three triumph.

Keep on dancing, Russ

Russell Westbrook wasn't having any of a couple of Dallas Mavericks, Charlie Villanueva and Justin Anderson, seemingly trying to disrupt his intense pre-game dance routine with teammate Cameron Payne.

Villanueva and Co., however, had the last laugh as they stole one on the road and evened the series at 1-1 against the Oklahoma City Thunder with an 85-84 squeaker.

Notice how this item didn't even need a clever caption to come off as amusing. In the end though, Jordan finished with a respectable (to his standards) 8-18 from the line and redeemed himself with a double-double (18 points, 12 rebounds) along with four blocked shots to help the Los Angeles Clippers take a one-game over the Portland Trail Blazers, 115-95.

Jumpman Jordan

Actually, the joke here is Jordan Clarkson's would-be in-laws. Just ask Kris Humphries and Lamar Odom... (And no, D'Angelo Russell wasn't the one recording this.)
