Sleepy Floyd is Nak’s inaugural old baller picture of the day.

Eric Sleepy Floyd #21 drives

“The zone”, “Reaganing”, “everything is coming up Milhouse”, whatever you want to call it, sometimes you can do no wrong. Sleepy Floyd had 11 minutes of basketball where he could do no wrong. Dude set a record for most points in a quarter(& half) in the playoffs against Michael Cooper and the Showtime Lakers on May 10, 1987.

Sleepy dropped 29 points in the fourth quarter to save the Warriors from getting swept. He missed only one shot in that span, all while being guarded by one the best wing defenders the league has ever seen. I bet Sleepy’s mom made him a breakfast with no hog that morning.
