Fans Go Berserk After Jose Alvarado Gets Trolled While Using Sneaky Move On 17 Year NBA Veteran During Suns vs Pelicans

Published 04/20/2022, 11:00 AM EDT

Ever since New Orleans Pelicans Jose Alvarado has come into the league, he has been a pest on the defensive end. He uses a unique tactic where he stands in the corner after the opponent gets the ball and he rushes from behind to get the steal. He has been quite successful in that. But today in game 2 of the series against the Suns, Jose was mocked by Chris Paul for trying his sneaky move.

It was the fourth quarter of game 2. The Pelicans were leading 95-92 and they had the ball. They shot a three, but it didn’t go in and Cam Johnson secured the rebound. He then passed it to the ‘Point God’ Chris Paul.

Alvarado was in the corner sneaking and he started his move. But Paul was aware of this and he secured the ball, and then he told Jose to go back to his court. Jose then stopped his move, but he picked up CP3 full court.
