Current Ref Level: Eddie Rush (dunno why either, I like his name though)
In other news, I’m in love with arrows
The Raptors have finally abolished the fugliest color for any sports jersey and gone straight to reppin’ Canada’s colours (yes, it’s spelled with a U here bitches). Anyway, nothing really astronomical in the tweak, just using all red all the time. Some of the pics are here.
It’s the rest of the photos, nay, CAPTIONS that are even more anti-climatic. You get stuff like:
When you have the likes of Pape Sow blessing you with a semi-amusing candid photo you GOTTA have wittyer captions. Listen Rebecca Virgin (*teehee*) here’s what you should’ve written:
-Sam Mitchell searching the lot for punka**es to run over
-P.J. Tucker has Venom like substance riding up his left thigh
-”Is Pape Sow gonna have to choke a bitch?”
Becky, step up your caption-making game yo, ain’t going to warn you again. Holla!

Team previewing isn’t really a strong facet in the UnrelatednessHut, so to take advantage of our lord and saviour YouTube, here are some interesting words out of the one and only DeShawn Stevenson about his upcoming season with the Wizards.
Fans of shirtless Gilbert Arenas can see a few more glimpses of that when they show some scrimmage action…if you’re into that sort of thing.
Notes on vid: I love how they spent like 20 minutes max putting the thing together. No music, no adjusting the volume of DeShawn’s timid voice, fast and easy!
And another one that’s earlier… Drinking Game: each time DeShawn does a “hard pose” between questions, CHUG!
NBA Live 07 just released their Top Bananas players ratings concocted from, and I quote from my sources: “dark voodoo”. You can check out the whole list here if you really need to know who is #131 (I know I can’t wait!).
But what’s really interesting is #4, Tracy McGrady. He is in such a zone nowadays that he decided to morph into another player completely, check it out:
Kudos to TBJ for steering me to this find, because seriously, the picture confused me so much that it accidentally made me drunk.
Since I might miss it due to other activities, I asked Nostradomus what was going to be on tonight’s Late Show, he kindly told me:
Current Ref Level: Bennett Salvatore
Now some (re: MANY) ball fans
feel know that B-Salz is pretty much the bottom of the barrel in terms of quality in reffin’. I feel compelled to compare myself to him because the other night was my first start at refereeing a rec league game. Thank the gods that it was an exhibition game…I’ll explain why after the jump.
So while I was busy edumacating-myself with classes yesterday and broke quite a mental sweat (which, as the great thespian of our time, Rachel Bilson, in her alter-ego Summer, would say: “Ew”) Lucas from Phoenix Suns Rising took care of the comments section here at the UnrelatednessZone. What do the kids call that these days? “Holding it down?” Sure.
(That first sentence has got to be the longest run on sentence ever)
Okay, back to some NBA stuff: Kobe backtracked from earlier statements about Team USA “needing more chemistry” (from AP):
During the summer, Bryant toured Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan. While in Taipei, he was quoted as saying the U.S. basketball team will have to work on its chemistry to perform well at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Didn’t happen, he says now.
“Those words never came out of my mouth,” he said. “I think something must have gotten lost in translation. Obviously, they misunderstood everything I was saying.”
Pshh, OBVIOUSLY. “Misunderstood everything” you said huh? Let’s see if we have that transcript…
“We’ll run off and be happy together forever!”
Speaking of Shaq, here is Shaq’s “top ten quotes” as put together by our TSN channel, though it’s nothing you haven’t seen yet. Where’s “don’t ask dumb questions young lady?”
