Personally, I think they should have made his girlfriend stand up, and then pan the camera up and down her for about a day!!! The "what kind of a question is that?" line was fabulous but what made it even better was he asked it a second time while the camera was on him! "How many BLACK basketball players has ming faced in china Dee???", charles asked! I loved this article; having watched the whole first round, it made me laugh again!Originally posted by dkg1
IMO, the highlight of the draft was seeing Casey Jacobson's girlfriend! That was classic interaction between Sager and Barkley. How about Barkley's remarks accidently making the air while Dee Lynam was asking Yao powder puff questions? He said something like, "What kind of question is that?!?!?!?" I was cracking up as I don't think that was intended to make the broadcast.
Yup, guaranteeing it. Remember, this is the same guy that guarantees that Vince Carter will leave Toronto by 3 years. He may be funny (according to some), but he, as are most basketball writers, is a complete idiot who doesn't know anything about basketball.One more thing: Years from now, we will remember "Yao Ming over Jay Williams" the same way we remember "Bowie over Jordan," "Traylor for Nowitzki," "Carroll for McHale and Parish," "Aguirre over Thomas" and every other great draft day blunder in NBA history. I'm not just predicting it, I'm guaranteeing it.
I agree with you, Budweiser_Boy. I have seen some pretty insane things from this guy. The one about Carter was next to idiotic.Originally posted by Budweiser_Boy
Sorry to ruin your fun guys, but there's one part of the article that caught my attention, at the beginning. And yes, I did read the entire thing and I still think Simmons is an idiot. Anyway, Yup, guaranteeing it. Remember, this is the same guy that guarantees that Vince Carter will leave Toronto by 3 years. He may be funny (according to some), but he, as are most basketball writers, is a complete idiot who doesn't know anything about basketball.
