ONE TIME AT BBALL CAMP….

No, there was no flute usage, it was not stuck, played, or used in any capacity. And if you haven’t seen American Pie, that will make no sense. Go back and watch it, it was hilarious, way back before Tara Reid became emaciated. In a previous life I coached basketball for a living. Granted, I didn’t make a good living, but its what I did. As part of the gig of being an underpaid, overworked, (but always appreciated, my head coach was awesome, you’re not gonna catch me saying anything derogatory about him) young assistant basketball coach, I worked basketball…

IS THE TIME RIGHT FOR NBA EXPANSION?

With the bulk of the off season lifting completed, the remaining free agents are scrounging for whatever veteran minimum contracts can be found. While the narrative has been about the focusing of talent into an isolated amount of cities, and rosters, there are still plenty of NBA level athletes available on the market, and overseas. If you were to start an NBA franchise with the likes of Nerlens Noel, Michael Beasley, Shabazz Muhammed, Tony Allen, Monta Ellis, Andrew Bogut, Ian Clark, JaMychal Green, Gerald Henderson, Alex Len, Nikola Mirotic, and Rodney Stuckey, would you be a championship contender? No, of…

Brocabulary Lesson

Well, I believe in the soul, The cock, the pussy, the small of a woman’s back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrate crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft wet kisses that last three days, and I believe that no worthwhile conversation can take place without the use of…

In Honor of the Honorable

So please humor me for an article before I return you to your regularly scheduled commentary on the mundane. And I know what you’re thinking. I haven’t actually posted in a hot minute. Well, I’m sorry, give me this one, and maybe I’ll put together this content calendar I’ve been telling Slim Mex about (oh yeah, and I’ll even put together a write up on The Duckers. So far The Dude, and Slim Mex have been mentioned, but there are others). Let me tell you how I spent my morning. I sat at a table, soliciting money from people from…

Dysfunction Junction

Two teams, two different cities. 450 miles apart on a map, light years from each other in terms of realistic immediate goals, and yet, closer than one would think. The Cleveland Cavaliers will go into the 2017-2018 with the knowledge that they’ve been in the NBA Finals the last 3 seasons, and have brought home…
