Sue Bird shows that even a legend can be faked from his shoes

Sue Bird is a four-time WNBA champion and recently won her fifth Olympic gold medal with Team USA in Tokyo.

But even legends can sometimes be faked on the ground.

Watch LA Sparks’ Erica Wheeler send Bird sprawl with a quick-stop cross-legged dribble on Sunday. She then whistled a jump shot.

Here is the final result:

Wheeler had 17 points and this viral moment in the 81-53 rout of host Sparks from Bird’s Seattle Storm.

In basketball parlance, such a supreme act of juking is said to break a defender’s ankles (but not really.)

Fans laughed at a falling basketball GOAT, as the replay showed Bird appeared to be tripping on his own foot. Some say Wheeler stepped on his feet as well.
