Bubba gets blocked, shoots air ball in NBA celeb game

Fresh off a second-round 70 that has him in the mix at the Genesis Open, Bubba Watson made an appearance in the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game. And while his team ended up with the win, he probably won't be quitting his day job anytime soon.

Watson finished with two points - on a pair of free throws - and he grabbed a few rebounds, but he also shot an air ball from the top of the key on his first field goal try and got another shot swatted into the stands by NBA Hall of Famer Tracy McGrady.

Perhaps that's why his wife Angie, who is a former professional basketball player, told Bubba to stay out of the paint.

A couple of Watson's PGA Tour peers, Daniel Berger and Brooks Koepka, couldn't help but comment on the two-time major champ's game, or lack thereof.
