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..):

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: 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!


For some unfathomable reason, Mehmet Okur shall be The Unrelatedess Official Player of the 06-07 Season. The man hits game clinching 3s like he’s at a piñata festival. Don’t believe me? Take Skeets word for it on today’s Fix: “I’m telling ya, he’s the most underrated clutch player in the game” As well, he looks goofy enough for this type of deal.

Speaking of the Jones, their 100th ep is coming up and wow that’s freakin sick. The Big 1-Hundy. Congrats dudes.

Oh and Yahoo!Sports!NBA! has a redesign. It looks like circa 2002. Oh my sweet sweet innocent YahooSports…

Psst! I’m over here! Filling in for the Pradamaster over at Bullets Forever for the next couple of days. I’m not sure how this transpired either, but rest assured that I’ll be eroding the whole SportsBloggerNation from the inside mwhahaha! Spreading shit like GoldenStateOfMind got Sactown Royalty pregnant. I be causin’ all sorts of havoc and whatnot. Yeah!

So I was half watching the Utah-Sixers game, because it’s the only game I got last night. This juggernaut battle of epic proportions was so thrilling, I had to pinch myself from falling asleep. It was THAT exciting.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the precision, grinding styles of the Spurs and Pistons. In their own way, it’s because of their so-called “boring styles” (given by pedestrian fans), that I love watching the way they execute plays. It’s what defines their greatness—the personality of just being mentally tougher than you.

The Jazzies however, have no personality. They run their sets perfectly, but I can’t seem to like them. For now, they exude the dreaded label of being just “very good”.

It could’ve been the fact that they were playing the bloody Sixers and maybe because like I said that’s my only Jazzies game. But nay, if I say they are as unattractive a team as as Sam the dog, then so shall it be spoketh unto the peoples of the world (and so on and so on).
