Spotted: Troy Murphy Wasn’t Dipping During Lakers-Thunder Game 5
This GIF surfaced during the Lakers’ season-ending Game 5 loss to the Thunder in OKC, featuring reserve forward Troy Murphy appearing to have a dip in his mouth whilst spitting into plastic gatorade cup.
Murphy appeared to join the Legend that is Brad Miller, in an extremely small collection of individuals that have dipped in an NBA game, let alone the playoffs.
We reached out to a reliable source to confirm whether or not Murphy had a dip in during the game and unfortunately the source said that Murphy wasn’t dipping.
Apparently Murphy has a peculiar habit during games of sipping water in one cup and spitting it out into another cup when sitting on the bench, probably as a means of killing some time during the game.
