Still unknown following his first few good performances with the Clippers, Moussa Diabaté shone the spotlight on him with a monstrous dunk on Wednesday. Never mind, the American fans have unearthed him a nickname… particular!
NCAA fans, many across the Atlantic, had at least already heard of it. Simple NBA fans discovered his name during the last Draft, during which he was only selected in 43rd position. Recovered by the Clippers, Moussa Diabaté is doing everything to find a place there before the start of the season. He has in any case found the perfect way to make people talk about him in recent hours.

His huge poster hitting poor Jack White has thus made the rounds of social networks, and has greatly inspired American Internet users. The latter have indeed renamed it in a funny way following this viral sequence:
