Klay Thompson nutmegs DeMar DeRozan in Team USA exhibition game

BY foxsports • August 14, 2015

Exhibition games are supposed to be fun for the fans, with little to no defense being played so players can rack up uncontested highlights.

But sometimes a player will try to play defense, or give a half-attempt at it, which can lead to him being completely embarrassed, as Toronto Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan was when Golden State Warriors nutmegged him on a fastbreak in Team USA's exhibition contest on Thursday night.

For those unaware of what a "nutmeg" is, it's when a ball-handler passes the ball to himself through a defender's legs, which, of course, is embarrassing.

DeRozan was merely at the wrong place at the wrong time, and Thompson, who isn't known for his ball-handling skills, got 'em.
