Ah the majestic BEARD has been robbed a quarter of game action last night. Though, the way I saw things, if the Warriors hadn’t been complaining so much in almost all the action, perhaps the refs wouldn’t have pulled that quick of a trigger? We shall never know.
Then again, some of the calls seemed iffy, but that can’t be changed — with two teams hungry: Mavericks because they just got bitch slapped in Game 1 and need to smack back their pimp hand and Golden State because they are greedy bastards in trying to steal another game.
De-3 VS. Orlando Bloom: Dwight will posterize someone tonight — it might even be Flip Saunders.
Rox VS. Mormons: 3-0 man, it’s so happening. Why? Because the tears of Andrei will make the Jazz players slip all over the place. YEAH I SAID IT
Suns VS. ChokeShow: Well, can’t really call them Chokers… since they’ve got no talent to begin with, I guess I’m just referring to the fact that they couldn’t even attempt to make it close — ahhhh who am I kidding, the Lakers plain suck. The Association really wants to punch somebody.
Okay, so I’m still a bit
hungover “tired” after losing the drinking bet to what some might call my friends and that makes critically analysing the All-Star Game pretty much non-existent for today’s post (or any other post for that matter). Oh, and “critically analysing the ASG?” haha, that’s gotta be an oxymoron right??
So instead of talking about Kobe Bryant’s multiple reverse jams looking like straight replays; instead of talking about how somewhat meta it was during those couple of Amare v. Dwight Howard lowpost battles; instead of focusing on Shaq’s perpetual loveability (smacked one on T-Mac AND brought out the HotSauce dribbling—which, Memo playing hardcore defense was priceless); instead of talking about how LeBron totally mistimed his off-the-glass dunk that ended terribly (haha making it up with an air ball three); instead of conceding that Vince Carter IS a staple for All Star Games every single year because seriously, he’s the best in the game at electrifying the crowd; instead of talking about the lame crowd not getting into the game; and finally, instead of trying to describe that smile I had when Gil did the trampoline dunk… I give thee… pretty lady pictures, Toni Braxton and of course, Chappelle (sitting next to PRINCE??? bwahahah where’s Kevin Smith??):
(side note… I’m not the “hippest” guy right.. I mean, I try to follow what’s going on with da kidz.. but Toni Braxton? Was this 1995? But still, wow)
Yo Seth, is she starting over David Lee? If so, I’ll be VERY angry (and happy at the same time—I’ve got issues).
Okay, that one symbolizes the Women’s Suffrage of the 1880s and how we need to continue and support women’s rights
I’m still looking for The Waiter’s solo dance number!
Dave! No! Don’t battle Prince again!!

Okay, so I might’ve been a “little” off on my predictions last night. Uh..yeah, those were..’joke’ predictions..yeaah (good save!). Watching the celebrity game though, I fear that Tony Potts… of Access effin Hollywood is a better baller than me… that.. makes.. me.. so, so sad. Especially when he seems to be in slightly better shape than LT and Reggie Bush (and ooh man, that was a scary, in a totally “goddamn we saw this coming” type of way—thus, a little funny)
Predictions4Tonite! – Gerald Green Dunk-fu Master; JET sinks 7 in a row to win 3pt thingy; Mad Skilz goes to Wade because he’s fast, but dunno about them chest passes; and finally I’m going with team Houston.
Getty Images Caption Folks are drunk and high
and here’s the second, and majorly more important:
I uh.. I.. um.. what.. was I…..I suddenly don’t remember my name..
Insider Marc Stein reported that Young Thunder Dwight Howard was planning on doing something, that’s well, insane-tastic:
Orlando sources report that Howard has been practicing a couple wicked maneuvers that might inject this dying competition with the ingenuity/originality it desperately needs. One is a 360 throwdown with the rim hiked to 12 feet, two feet higher than regulation. The other sets the rim at 11 1/2 feet and has Howard purportedly going between his legs with the ball in mid-air before flushing.
(I don’t have Insider myself, cuz besides spending my precious little cash on 80s jukeboxes, I’m a proud “Outsider”.)
Anyway, blah blah league is stupid, David Stern unbelievably pimp-smacks his fans again blah blah. What the article didn’t tell you though, was that Howard has a couple of fail safe backup dunks, checkz ‘em out:
Caption: (Above) Giraffe says “on no!” Dwight says “oh yes! suck on that bitch!”
(Left) ooooh SNAP, it’s the C-141B Starlifter dunk son!
Celeb All Star game: Lame, but I’m picking da East. They have Donald Faison! Chocolate Bear!
Rookie Challenge: Lamer, but I’m calling ROOKS! And I’m calling an Il Mago (Andrea Bargnani) monster flush on Bogut!
This is going to be like the 4th straight post I’ve at least mentioned Memo Okur, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. In lieu of yesterday’s announcement of his All-Star joinage, and after thinking long and hard about this: I’m starting an MVP campaign for Okur… surely Boozer deserves more consideration, but eff-that, I’m not going by that logic. Check it—
And if you want to join this campaign of epic proportions, please show it off to the world by wearing it all over your bodies over at the new Hype Store: Gears of Clothing
Here are a few examples, but there are a ton of other colors to select from. Be sure to check back from time to time up on the new tab next to the Toons called “!Shirts!” to see new ish!
I’m also happy to spotlight a new shirt that a certain someone has been
bugging kindly helping me out with a special request (kinda Need4Sheed-esque, but I totally didn’t intend for that to happen, love Natalie’s stuff though!):
Also, not very NBA related, but because this is pretty much me most of the time:
There are also two designs transferred from the old CafePress store that some of you may remember as well. Don’t worry, that ol’ CafePress baby of a store will be up forever, if anything, to commemorate one of the bigger events of this blog (yes yes, you’ve all seen it a lot by now… sorry! I’m working on making a shirt and getting it to Chaka Khan soon!)
So yeah, go check out the some of the new stock over at The GoC!
Breaking news (not that I’m doing anything breaking.. or news-ing..):
From the glorious Temples Of NBA.com:

Hah, that’s the entire press release, don’t even click on the link! Oh and ya ya, congrats to Jesus Shuttleworth as well. Just like I drew it up (‘pun’ shamelessly intended)! I should anoint more Official Unrelatedness Player of The Year I’m so good (you hear that Iggy? step up cous!) So it’s all good Seth, we can watch again, and the West will win! EDIT: OOtahjazzblog.net beat me by a mile… and a continent (*cries in bed*)
To mark this is freaking awesome occasion, I have something fun coming, check back tomolo! It’s way better than all that Amaechi/Anna Nicole Smith/Obama silly “news” going on!
PS: The newest, hottest, flyest mixtape to date: TrueHoop – from Henry Abbott feat. ESPN yaaaa it’s a banger!
Quickie: The East All-Stars WILL WIN THE ALL STAR GAME!
I’m only basing this on the fact that there are a slew of players on the West that’s basically
faking rehabing injuries:
- Steve Nash
- possibly Melo
- Yao (well, that’s legit)
- DJ MBenga
So there, I win.
But check it, he was on Jimmy Kimmel Live a couple months ago! And his English is pretty good I’d say, dunno why he needed a translator, lookie see:
Man, I wished that Wanda Sykes added even more spice to the interview. Oh and hell ya that translator is hot, I don’t care if it’s just cause I’m azn. And Jimmy is horrible at ball.
Next video, because if you’re a regular of this blog you know I loves me my toons, so this is totally me:
