07:18 AM ET 09.04 | What did you do on your summer vacation? Toronto Raptors big man Amir Johnson, judging from his Instagram, is in the southeast Asian nation of Thailand. It seems he's just there for a nice vacation, but somewhere along the line, he clearly got it in his head that the best way to improve his game for the upcoming season is by challenging elephants to various athletic activities. ... The elephant has raw power, but probably lacks post moves and doesn't have much of a handle considering he has to dribble with his trunk. It seems those competitions didn't go his way, so he tried to assert his dominance over a different member of the animal kingdom: [a tiger]. No matter how big your bicep is, Amir, I'm gonna take the tiger in this one.

I'd like to see Michael Beasley -vs- the tiger... in a cage match.

Since he can't seem to play well with humans, might as well try elephants and tigers. or try a black mamba...
