Grumble grumble it turns out that Angry Alex of “The Aftermath” on CJLO.com was so angry he forgot to press record… boo-urns.. *sigh* it had some “interesting/waaaay out there” things that were said.. obviously mostly by me.
Some of the items included:
Me saying the Nets are going to the Finals… yeah, if I could remember the dealer who sold me the crack I clearly smoked before I picked them, I’d totally share it with you. But I said it kind of jokingly (rolls eyes) and thought the guys would have a reaction.. obviously they didn’t and now I’m mr. dummy head.
Then again, Jack-o McCallum from SI.com also predicts the Nets… changes everything now doesn’t it? (slight Update: Chuckster also likes the Nets! I’m gaining confidence with this more and more ha!)
ROY: Adam “I’m Actually A Comedian” Morrison
Raps to playoffs? Nada.
MVP pick: LeBron.
Ask if Heat goes back to Finals: Negative.
Ah, what the hell ever, after the first week no one’s going to remember these goofy preseason picks. And I’ll deny everything I said 6 months later.
Sucks that I couldn’t have the recording, thought I improved a bit (re: not making up random fake facts). But I’m their NBA guy for the whole season every Monday so no worries, I’m sure there’s plenty of chance of me doing more crazy-talk within a 15 minute span.
Wow, Sactown Royalty ends the bloggers preview on a crazy note as they pose 93 Questions (but a bitch ain’t one..) I barely made it to #5. Oh, there’re answers too! (ugh, that reminds me exam season is knocking at the door..go, away!)
We, as well, bid adieu to the Previews. Now that the L is back on the screen, we’ll focus on real matters, just like all the cool kids—but still we’ll either make silly doodles and/or mindless photoshopping about it instead of deep insight…
And what of the NBA TOONS? Oh, it’ll come back soon, just now they’ll take a 20 second timeout (until they come out of the huddle and see the opposing team’s lineup and calls for a full)
NBA Action, booya!
Today’s preview(s) is the contending Phoenix Suns.. however, at press time, our good friends over at SunsGossip and Phoenix Suns Rising both haven’t put up anything up yet… both eh? hmm… UPDATE! it’s up on their respective sites now, go take a gander, they have a “wonder powers, activate!” thing going on.
This is their punishment:
So a friend of mine does a little sports show on our school’s online radio show and he asked if I wanted to be their “NBA” dude. “YEAH!” I said.
I tried my best at “sounding” smart, pretending to know a lot more about ball than I really do. If you’re looking for actual insight though, especially coming from other hoops blogs.. eeeh, probably not going to find it.. think of this as a light snack. It’s mildly amusing at some points and I’m pretty sure everything I mentioned is common knowledge among hoop heads anyway.
So…after giving you AMPLE reason to stay away from this (which I’m kinda hoping you do even though I decided to upload it 🙄) here’s what sounds like some NBA talk:
—the hosts are “Angry Alex” and “Con Man”, I included just my segment (I cut out the rest of the show, cuz, well.. my site 😉!)
—I was hoping I wouldn’t get asked about the Okla Group/Sonics/Hornets situation, since I messed up the info.. half the games in Naw’lins? More like 6..
—Superdome?? Yeah.. no… (Con Man blurted it out and I didn’t really think about it) though the New Orleans Arena site’s “message” is unintentionally hilarious
—I meant to say Henry Abbott is adamant about them NOT being called Jailblazers.. wow, I suck!
—and I say “y’know” way too many times
—oh, not much ‘previewing’ I know, that’s lowgrade college radio show for ya!
Well, hopefully I improve in subsequent weeks (back again tomorrow if y’all are interested). Keep in mind that was my first ‘hack’ at any type of radio and yes, Skeets & Tas are my idols and inpiration.
Other than knowing we needed players, we’re not totally sure how to win it. But whatever the outcome, we’ll be the first ones to let you know we still won.

(C’mon guys! Say it with me: Re-cord-break-ing-year!)
Then comes the Posin’ 4some:
“Hello? Yes, yes, me friends are, how you say.. ‘smoothy’? We good at basket and even one knows computer! Sexy!”
And who can forget these..um..actually, who are these dudes??
Okay guys? One of you gets a new Forrest Gump DVD if you keep your stats up to at least the All-Star break. Cool? Awesome! Go Team!
Yeaaaa.. let’s say, it’s for “Halloween”, yup. Not me being crazy at all.
Weed legal at ASG in Vegas not a problem? Ha! Oh Mr. Stern, you slay me, SLAY me I say. Quick, New Jersey Nets officials send Cliff Robinson off to Ireland or something during that weekend!

Chris Anderson, your services are needed for, um, “extra” entertainment…
Zoolander won’t not be funny, ever. Thus quoting from it makes for fun times.Reason why the comic is bigger today? I’m lazy. Can’t figure out a way to scale it to the apt size for the post without making Gilbert Arenas turn into a tiny molecule.
Woah, Wednesdays are crazy with updates in the hoops blog world eh? It’s probably a good thing I’ve got classes all day to stay relatively oblivious of the orgy of posts til I get home.
Alright, time to get to the dirty dirty: The continuation of my anthropological social experiment of what the ancients once called “Refereeing”. In case you missed the previous incarnations, here’s Part One | La Deuxième Partie | and 第三集
