Word on the Street

Out-enthusiasm (owt’-en-thoo’-ze-az’-uhm) verb. out-enthusiamed, out-enthusiasming, out-enthusiams. To defeat a better player and/or team due to a superior display of passion, spirit, and drive to win.

Usage example:The Nets snapped the Pistons 11-game winning streak because they just flat out-enthusiasmed them.

Word history: At this point, do we even need to keep giving Magic Johnson credit for these things?

When Nenad Krstic [!!] beats you to a loose ball, you’ve just been out-enthusiasmed.
