INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Pacers forward Jermaine O’Neal is now demanding a trade to NBC’s cult comedy Scrubs.
J.O. has been wishy washy of late when he made a remark to the awesomely named dude from SI.com Arash Markazi that he would “welcome a trade to the Lakers“. He then later backtracked making clear he didn’t actually demand the trade to L.A.
Now, however, word from his agent is that he does want to go to L.A., but for an entirely different reason: to star in the comedy series about hospital hijinks Scrubs.
“Scrubs is funny man!” said O’Neal, “Man, that Sarah Chalke is all sorts of hilarious… and frikkin’ HOT!”
The comedy show star Zach Braff would welcome Jermaine should he be traded: “Two brown bears? Sign me up!”
O’Neal averaged 19.4 points, 9.6 rebounds, 5.3 jokes per possession and 2.6 blocks last season in one of the best performances of his 11-year career.
Hot off the AP comes the newest in Stephen Jackson’s Epic – Why Carrying A Gun Is Pretty Much The Funnest Thing To Do In Indiana.
In that report Jackson says that he fired off shots to calm people down. Hell ya, if I’m in a room full of crying babies, the first thing I’d think of is to shoot 3 warning shots in the air to let those fools know who’s the boss – na’mean?
Anyways, here’s why he went a-bang-bang:
Jackson, who now plays for the Golden State Warriors, testified that when he was walking from the club to his car, a man approached him shouting, “Go ahead and dump, dump!”
“Where I’m from, ‘dump’ means pull out your gun and shoot,” he said.
He fired a couple of shots in the air to break up the brawl that ensued, he said.
“It was like an all-out brawl,” he said. “I started seeing more and more faces I didn’t know.”
“Faces you didn’t know?” Oh, now you’re adding “short-term amnesia” to the defense huh?? Technicalities my ass. And really, are you implying that some guy dared you to pull out your gun and you went ahead and did so because you need to keep it real?
But wait, there’s more. The person that ran a car into Jackson declined to show up in court and instead had a lawyer speak on his behalf:
“Mr. Willford [dude that drove into Jax –TheHype], in fear of his life, in fear of his cousin’s life, does what the average reasonable person would have done,” Mendez [lawyer for said dude –TheHype] said.
I dunno about that man. According to your story, if someone shot a few rounds into the air in front of me while I was still in the car, I’d hightail the fuck outta here—not committing premature manslaughter. But that’s just silly ol’ me, thinking that CAR > Person.. the again.. it’s Stephen Jackson.. he’s pretty much indestructable (*not scientifically proven…yet)
The funniest thing though (bet you didn’t think something would top that) is: the AP writer is yet another T-Murph!
Psst, I added a lil’ new box thingy on the sidebar

Sure, I didn’t hop on the maiden voyage of the Stephen Jackson mania last week, but what else could I say that the big dogs haven’t already? Well, I guess there’s always this:
The Pacers are an enigma of sorts right now, where not even bloggers bother to set up a team site for them, as if saying, “ohhh fuck that, I’m not going to be any way associated with those loons”. Well at least this time I’m ahead of the NBA Previews! Supposedly, according to the schedule, Donning Craig Sager’s Suit (a site possibly on the cusp of being raw funny.. but not enough posts yet to make it so) is going to do it. Not sure when that’s coming, but I got you covered when the update comes. Word.
UPDATE: It was up in the evening last night while I got schooled by a shorter, fat kid in at the gym that kept driving to the hoop (YOU GOTTA WANT IT HYPE!)
