NBA player gives perfect Dr Disrespect imitation on stream

Miami Heat center Meyers Leonard pulled off an incredibly impressive imitation of Twitch streamer.

The NBA is filled with some of the most physically talented people in the world. While Leonard popped off for his former Portland Trailblazer team in the 2019 campaign, he’s also been increasingly growing his Twitch stream on the side.

Leonard has been a prominent crossover name in the world of streaming and the NBA. He stamped his investment into FaZe Clan in early 2019, while also repping a pair of custom sneakers during a game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

NBA-caliber “yayayaya”

But if all that wasn’t enough a clip reemerged in the LiveStreamFails subreddit on August 26 that showed Leonard ready to dethrone the Two-time with an impressive take on the “yayayayaya” call.

The clip starts out with Leonard taking a deep breathe before pounding a whole bottle of water to get his vocal chords ready for a championship-level callout.

With overly large sunglasses equipped, Leonard filled the next 16 seconds of his stream with a loud and impressive “yayaya” that could rival the Doc’s best attempts.

It seemed like the 7-foot Center was running low on breath since the last few “yayaya”s were getting forced out. But having the mental fortitude of an NBA player, Leonard made sure to round out the attempt with a hard flex.

The NBA rising talent has shown off natural streaming talent in the past.

NBA center and rising Twitch star?

His streams mainly revolve around Fortnite games with prominent streamers in the scene, but he’s also been attracting larger audiences because of his natural talent to entertain.

In his August 20 stream, Leonard could be seen decked out in his NERF gear with the Fortnite NERF Rocket Launcher in hand shooting at his weasel plush named Rhett.

While the shot might not land in many highlight reels, it’s a great example at how well Leonard’s personality easily fits into the entertainment life of a Twitch streamer.

Going by his imitation of the Doc, it seems like Leonard is well on his way to having a successful career as a streamer, unless he prefers the fame and success he’s enjoyed so far in the NBA.

Twitch streamer banned after being denied partnership over age

Twitch streamer AverageHarry has been permanently banned after his partnership application was denied, and they discovered he allegedly signed up while under the age of 13.

AverageHarry has been through a bit of a roller-coaster ride lately. It started back in October 2020 when a video of him getting mocked by strangers and crying on stream went viral.

Since then, his popularity skyrocketed, and he applied to become a Twitch partnered streamer. However, the application was denied in January 2021 after discovering he made the account when he was less than 13 years old, which didn’t align with his account details.

But the drama doesn’t end there. Twitch also said he could lose access to his account because of the restriction. Now, it appears they have doubled down on that claim and made it happen.

Twitch: AverageHarry
AverageHarry went viral after some strangers laughed at him in public while he was streaming.

“I have just been permabanned on Twitch,” said AverageHarry. “For anyone wondering, this is why. He shared a previous tweet, which included a screenshot of the email he received when they denied his application.

“You’ve listed your age as 15, although this doesn’t appear to align with your account details,” said Twitch. “Please get in touch with Twitch support in order to see whether you can update your birthday to be accurate. Otherwise, you may need to make a new account with correct details.”

However, AverageHarry hasn’t given up yet. “I’ll have a video out tomorrow talking about it all,” he said. “I am allowed to make another account, but I have just lost nearly 90k followers.”

He might try and have the ban overturned, which could happen if enough people rally behind him. And it seems like they are, with many people sharing their support on social media. “He genuinely seemed like a good kid,” wrote one user. “Hope he makes a new account and stuff.”

“That Twitch account was made by his parents and given to him by his parents after he was 13 and provided proof for that,” wrote another. “But [he] still got his account removed. [I] hope the best for him.”

In the end, though, Twitch is treating it as a serious matter and won’t want to set a precedent. So, it will be interesting to see what happens and whether their decision is final.
