Oscar Robertson’s statue has a big rod going up his butt

Wisconsin big man Frank Kaminsky was awarded on Friday the Oscar Robertson Trophy for United States Basketball Writers Association national player of the year. It’s molded after an iconic photo.

In real life, it’s a marvel of a feat. But immortalized as a statue? Well, the move translates awkwardly.

The 76-year-old Robertson is reportedly kind of a grouch these days—but no word yet on what he thinks of the ridiculous statue commissioned to honor Kaminsky’s inside game.
