Now Entering the Hall

I haven’t done any research on this whatsoever, but this year’s contenders to the Basketball Hall of Fame may just be the best class ever. Headlining the list of first-time eligible players is some guy who goes by the name of Michael Jeffrey Jordan, you might have heard of him, I hope he makes it! Anytime you have the greatest player of all time in the mix that’s going to up the quality of the class, but let’s look at who else is eligible and likely to make it.

How about Mr. Consistent, John Stockton? Sure, he only holds the records, by a healthy margin, for career steals AND assists, despite no titles I don’t think there is much question that he’s in.

Joining his fellow Dream Teamers is the Admiral himself, former San Antonio Spur David Robinson. Sure, he wasn’t able to win a championship without Tim Duncan, but when the Twin Towers were paired together and going strong no one could stop them, and they did have that pretty healthy run of championships. Robinson also is by all accounts, one of the nicest people in the game and hey, he served in the Navy too so, that’s pretty awesome.

Other people eligible include another Dream Teamer, Chris Mullin, former Celtics great the late Dennis Johnson, Don Nelson as a coach, the Utah Jazz’ Jerry Sloan, Rutger’s women’s coach C. Vivian Stringer and Washington Bullet Bernard King.

All in all, a pretty damn dope cast of characters. I’d pay money to watch them have a pick-up game, even now.

Warriors Fool Around in Practice

During their shoot around yesterday, the Golden State Warriors decided to liven things up a bit by engaging in a punting competition. While NBA players may be great athletes, only Ronny Turiaf was able to punt the ball into the second level. Don’t worry though, the veterans weren’t extending themselves chasing after the balls, they had the rookies track them down in the stands instead. Also, during the video you can see Warriors assistant coach Stephen Silas walk across the screen with a computer, later in the practice players all gathered around to watch, presumably from the Slanch Report, the video of Corey Maggette traveling 6 times on one play that we showed you yesterday. Reportedly, everyone, including Maggette enjoyed it.

Coming in to Dock

This just looks inappropriate to do in front of an entire stadium of people…But hey if Joel Przybilla of the Blazers and the Thunder’s Jeff Green are down then I am too. I am a performer after all…

Tell Me More About This “Zach Randolph”

Coming back from commercial during the Los Angeles Clippers game last night, one of the dancers, Jacqueline parked herself in a perfect position to be on camera for an extended period of time. Much like the Denver Nuggets’ dancer Bridget whose hypnotic dance moves already enthralled a nation, this dancer too features a couple nice moves. When the video goes slow-mo it’s nice I suppose, but does make it hard to follow the sideline reporter’s comments…
