[Phone rings]

Danny Ainge: yeeeeello? Double Dose of Danny Ainge at your service!
Kevin McHale: It’s… it’s me… K-Dawg
Danny Ainge: K-man! How’s it hanging? Doing good? Did you see the Simpsons movie??
McHale: Yeah! It was pretty awesome! Didn’t you love the part where— hold up… there was something I called you for…
Ainge: You need to borrow money?
McHale: No.. that wasn’t it…
Ainge: …need to borrow cocaine?
McHale: hmm, might’ve been it, but I don’t think so..
Ainge: oh, maybe you wanted to borrow my hooker?
McHale: hahaha no you silly, she’s already at my place, don’t you remember?
Ainge: hah, oh my, yes.
McHale: Well, whatever it is, I’m sure it’s not important. Glad we talked bra
Ainge: Anytime chum!

The biggest question first: But What About Mark Madsen? Who is he going to turn to when he’s out there screaming by his lonesome?? Oh sigh.

And yeah, pretty big news… only like… 4 years in the making. Kevin Garnett is going to be a Celtic.

The trade is for Al Jefferson, Ryan Gomes, Gerald Green, Sebastian Telfair, Theo Ratliff, a giant sandwich, three juice boxes, nine boxes of Juicy Fruit a No. 1 pick.

On the one hand, KG not in the dreary old Minnesota uniform is a welcoming sight. It’s also good to see him able to take a leap of faith in a new direction. However, on the other hand… meh… it’s the Celtics. They just traded away their entire bench (and possibly 3/4 Red Auerbach’s cigar collection) for millions and millions of dolla $igns.

Oh I’ll be watching, hopefully — Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Garnett is bananas, but let’s be real for 2 seconds: they are not going to win a championship. Sorry Bostonians, not like this.

I might’ve hinted something in the earlier link ups a post below. But I think it’s a good discussion platform for another post here (yo yo, I just used “discussion-platform”, what’s next? using the term “discourse”??)

ANYhow, thanks to the chest pass from iheartkg, here be a lovely quote from Kevin Garnett’s dude friend Rshard McCants that just kills me:

[…] But we talked about it a couple of times, scenarios and places. There’s no other place he wants to be. When you’re a king in your own kingdom, why would you want to go somewhere else?” […]

Okay, so we have to keep in sound mind that it ‘s R-Mac just saying his side of things, we really don’t know the real KG’s realest thoughts. But I can’t say I’m not a wee bit down on that enlightenment. Like I mentioned in the other post, this guy at a pickup game really tore Garnett up—to the point that I was sensing if Ticket retired today, he wouldn’t even care. But… but… it’s Kevin Garnett!

This guy’s basic premise is that Kevin doesn’t deserve all the pity because he the onus is on him to get his team wins (which he has not.) To which I replied, “hey, meanie! stop being a jerkwad!” … after considerable laughter and ridicule, I also included “but the past few years no credible help was there for him.”

But now, I dunno, when KG’s going all “King of the castle, king of the castle, I have a chair!” and not doing something, anything on getting himself into a winning situation… it just makes me go ugggh, and thinks that he doesn’t really have it as bad it he does, y’know?

May 5th: Houston Rockets got edged out by Utah Jazz in the 1st Round of the 2007 Playoffs. It is also T-Mac’s millionth early exit… making his fans (whoever’s still openly admits to being one) very sad all over again. The following is the transcript of a phone call that we at the Unrelatedness obtained through illegal wiretap “special” ways:

[*riiiiiiiiiing……riiiiiiiiing*]

*whimper* Ahhhh. *sigh*

[*riiiiiiiiiing……riiiiiiiiing*—click—phone picked up]

uh… he… hello?

YO YO YO YO YO YO YO YO

um… KG, that you…?

Look man, I just wanted to say: I’ve been there. It’s NOT YOUR FAULT.

[off to the side] I know.

Listen to me, it’s not your fault.

[serious] I know.

No you don’t, it’s not your fault.

Fuck man. Kev, for that last time, stop that Good Will Hunting shit! I think you have a problem.

[…]

I’m… I’m sorry… it was on TV last night… um.. talk to you later?

Whatever. You’re such a geek sometimes.

Like the title says, I’m doing a bit of recyclin’. This was done a while back, but I didn’t know it was a Nostradamus sort of connection between a game this afternoon and tonight’s Hollywood Self-Fatulation Academy Awards

To quench your undying lust for T-Wolf and Wizardry updates, go here and here. Oh and if Marty Scorsese doesn’t win… let’s just say… Taxi Driver wasn’t just a movie…

oh ps: watching the Bulls-Piston game and saw a very funny D-Wade Gatorade ad. Sigh, too bad.. you know.. he’s pretty much done for the year.. but it was mad funny tho “do it again! do it again!”

I bet you didn’t know Raptors head coach Sam Mitchell was a member of the Village People! We got proof!!

Thanks in order to Ryan for bringing the baseball card to my attention. Apologies to Sam, the Wolves, Sonia, the sledgehammer… this was too funny (that I had to do something with it right away!) 🙂

I hope that this one is satisfactory for the likes of I Heart KG 🙂 Incidentally, the little girl in the strip may or may not be influence by a certain.. “someone” dum dum dum.

And it just so happens that SG’s preview for the Timberwolves is fresh today so go and peep it. My thinking is that Mike James is going to give KG a heart attack by the end of the 3rd month (what? me being biased after watching last year’s Raptors games? Nooooo)

Other linkies: Brian Lucas (good guy) of Phoenix Suns Rising did a pod-thingy over at the hot HoopsAddict.com. You’ll see that not only is he good at covering the Suns, but he’s also got quite a good grasp of the Asian culture.

Gonna take another mid-week abrupt break (this time I’m gonna stick with that break) and I’ll probably just do the rest of the teams ill-ustrations in batches. Reason being: I really should start keeping up with actual, real NBA news (one of these days..) and the other reason is that I don’t want these to become stale and oversaturated. Just ask Garfield.
