The Black Falcon finally plays flipcup on TV

Posted on Jun 30, 2015 by

Former Tar Heel and reigning NBA Champion Harrison Barnes has been busy this past month. After dunking and (sometimes) shooting his way into the hearts of NBA fans worldwide, the Black Falcon took his first sip of alcohol – a shot from a member of the coaching staff, which he described as “nasty” – and has been reliving his missed college life ever since.



Not really, actually; turns out that Barnes has not gone the way of many young, successful athletes and has unceremoniously faded in and out of the drinking world without incident. However, Harrison took a few minutes out of his busy schedule to take part in a larger-than-life edition of “giant flipcup” against Marcellus Wiley and Max Kellerman. With show host/drinking partner Michele Beadle on his team, Harrison put in a performance representative of a lifetime non-drinker. Vine/2015 edition:

50% shooting isn’t bad for an NBA player in June… Unless, of course, you’re playing #giantflipcup.
