Everything you need to know about this NBA blog is in our following Mission Statement.
Here’s a list of personal proclamations that may help you determine whether or not you would ever want to read a blog written by The Idiot That Runs This Place.
I would donate both kidneys to Chris Paul.
I believe in Young Thaddeus.
I think Jason Kidd would have been a great fit for the ’85 Bears.
I consider the following albums to be unacceptably slept on: De La Soul’s Stakes Is High; Masta Ace’s A Long Hot Summer; Goodie Mob’s Soul Food; Rakim’s 18th Letter; Scarface’s The Fix; Sean Price’s Jesus Price Superstar; AZ’s Doe or Die; and Jedi Mind’s Servants in Heaven, Kings in Hell.
I would take Bird over Magic every time.
I spend most of my time jackpotting around.
I am an NCAA hoops polygamist and have enjoyed relationships with: the Fab Five; Shammgod’s Friars; Lamar & Cuttino’s Rams; Drew Barry, Starbury & Harpring’s Yellow Jackets; John Wallace’s Orangemen; Izzo’s Flintstones; JWill’s Blue Devils (I didn’t enjoy it); Hinrich’s Jay Hawks; McCants’ Tar Heels; and CDR’s Tigers.
I would pay a ton of money to join a book club with Delonte West, Brook Lopez, Nick Young, Gerald Green and Sasha Vujacic.
I thought Paul Pierce was a Hall of Famer in 2003.
I enjoyed the day I found out Ricky Davis’ full name.
I think Plastic Man narrowly edges out The Rifleman, Enormous Mormon, The Microwave and Bad Porn for the best NBA nickname of all time.
I consider “Niquesque” to be the finest word in the English language. “Signage” is the worst.
I believe Come Fly With Me, Casablanca, White Men Can’t Jump and Anchorman are the only four flawless films.
I was fortunate to begin watching Dwyane Wade early in his Marquette career solely because we share a surname. Unlike him, however, my mom knows how to spell.
I think Foul Monday is so ahead of his time his parents haven’t met yet.
I consider one of (a) MJ’s baseline retreat, spin-dribble, comeback flush over Ewing, (b) Nets-era Vince’s evisceration of Alonzo, or (c) Baron Davis’ “put that in your flat-top” facial on AK-47 to be my favorite dunk of all-time depending upon whichever one I’ve seen most recently.
I hope you also carry around a spare bowl of candy beans.
I think Derrick Rose will win an MVP.
I believe all lists should have twenty items.
