The NC State court-stormer’s video, not better than ‘Braveheart’? (VIDEO)

North Carolina State University's C.J. Leslie hugs former North Carolina State player David Thompson after North Carolina State upset Duke University in their NCAA basketball game in Raleigh

By now, you’ve surely seen the video of the kid in a wheelchair storming the floor after NC State beat Duke on Saturday afternoon.

If you haven’t, here it is. Nicole Auerbach of USA Today caught up with Will Privette afterwords, and his story is pretty incredible. CJ Leslie — you know, NBA prospect CJ Leslie that scored 25 points for his hometown Wolfpack on Saturday — scooped up Privette when his chair went down.

Good on CJ for recognizing the situation. That could have been really dangerous.

How do we know? Because we now have footage from Privette’s cell phone of his court storm. It’s pretty scary:

Luckily, Privette is OK and it good spirits, which allows us to laugh at what is, frankly, an utterly ridiculous situation. (Here’s a picture of Leslie holding Privette.)

The best part?

It’s not even close to the best video to come out of Raleigh after that win. I present to you: the NC State ‘Braveheart’ speech:

Incredible.

    Reason’s why this is the greatest video in the history of YouTube:

    1. Homage to Braveheart
    2. Bro-on-Bro piggyback ride
    3. Fake mullet
    4. Candy-striped overalls
    5. Rouge shotgun
    6. NWO-esque t-shirt fake-out.
