Deron Williams is Really Good at Basketball

Chris Paul, Steve Nash and even Rajon Rondo seem to garner more headlines than Utah’s Deron Williams, but that’s OK, he continues to be one of the best point guards in the league, quietly going about his business up in Salt Lake City. Take for instance, this kickass crossover he lays on Dwyane Wade before he just SLAMS one down over the Heat defense. That’s the play of a superstar.

What is less than inspiring is how Wade just completely gives up on the play almost instantly. That’s some fine hustle there Dwyane.

The Beautiful Surfer Girl Onslaught Continues!

Don’t let the her super-cute looks fool you, 22-year-old Anastasia Ashley is not just another pretty face, she’s one of the world’s top surfers. Starting from age 5, Ashley has been out on the waves and along the way she has won some of the most prestigious awards out there; she won the Rookie of the Year from the ASP and the Pro Surf Tour of America’s women’s tour championship at the ripe ol’ age of 16! She was also recently a finalist for PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian contest which is almost reason enough for me to pay attention to PETA, almost.

I think I’m going to have to watch a lot more surfing from now on, because, seriously, these women are RIDICULOUS.

The Suns Want to Do it All Night Long

For a shaggy-haired Canadian, Steve Nash seems like a pretty fun guy, whether he’s tandem biking, shooting movie trailers with Shaq or helping out Letterman, he always seems to be having a good time. The other night on the team bus, Leandro Barbosa, with Steve Nash on the camera gets the whole Phoenix Suns team to band together to sing Lionel Ritchie’s classic, All Night Long,” how fraternal!

Step 1: Buy Ferrari, Step 2: Pay Yearly Insurance Rate Equal to Cost of Car

Andy Murray is a 22-year-old Scottish tennis star who living a pretty standard early 20s existence. For instance, his super-cute now ex-girlfriend Kim Sears broke up with Murray in November because she was tired of him playing video games 7 hours a day.

Now, a mere 5 months after passing his driver’s test Murray, the world’s #4 ranked player, decided he wanted to buy himself a used car — partly to get over his recent breakup. Like most of us buying our first cars, he wanted to get a good deal, and so, obviously, he bought a Ferrari. He DID get a good deal on the car, paying nearly £50,000 less than the cost of a new supercar, but is probably in line for a big shock when he gets his first insurance bill.

That’s because, being a new driver, under 25-years-old, newly qualified to drive a high-performance auto and a celebrity means that his costs for insuring the car are likely to be astronomical. Murray paid £100,000 for the car and according to a survey of insurers, is likely to pay right around that sum A YEAR in order to get the appropriate insurance. Yikes!

Considering he’s already banked over £10M in endorsement contracts alone in his nascent career this purchase, and its subsequent costs, shouldn’t bankrupt the young star but it still is mighty exorbitant. But hey, he’s freaking 22-years-old, if you gave me that much money at that age I’d equally blow it in similarly fun fashion, so, more power to him. Enjoy it Andy!

Johnny Damon Viciously Makes Out With 86-Year-Old

Hosting the WWE’s Monday Night Raw, Johnny Damon found himself  the center of some unwanted touches when he was amorously attacked by octogenarian wrestling legend Mae Young. He can deny it all he wants, but he wanted it; why else would he have dressed that way?

One Second Left…He Shoots!…He…!

I’m not 100% convinced that this video is real, but it is really NEAT so let’s take a look. In it Mike Nowoslawski, a 9th grader makes a pretty awesome last second shot, he apparently scored 28 points in the game. I’d be more excited, but that shot ruined the point spread on the game and he cost me a bundle.

We Have Our Winners!

It was tough, there were many highly worthy candidates but ultimately, someone had to win the free subscription for NBA League Pass Broadband. The choice was made exceedingly harder by the EXCELLENT trash-talk that many of the contestants participated in, I think your denigrations of each other made us all better people, and I know I enjoyed it and hope you did as well.

Our Grand Prize, first place winner exhibited some excellent follow-up trash-talk to go along with his fine initial comment. In particular his examples of players that he was like was masterfully done and amusing too, which is more than enough to sway this judge. So, the free NBA League Pass broadband package goes to commenter Bo!

In second place, exhibiting a crass, aggressive and acerbic wit, comes Gabe who wins a fabulous new CAR! Well. If by car I mean a NEW adidas NBA BACKPACK!  But similar! HOORAY!

Our third place finisher Brandon Ribak, brought a voice of reason to this knife-fight and backed up his talk, earning him this position and he wins… an NBA pullover sweatshirt! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Yes!

Honorable mention goes to SoxDoc whose Eric Montross comment probably made me laugh the most.

Thank you to ultimately though to EVERYONE who participated, you’re all winners. Technically those three people really “won” but you too won the day. Go forth and tell your friends that you “won” a contest on the Slanch Report, they’re sure to be impressed, call your parents, email your high school principal. Also stay tuned for more fun contests along the way as we hope to have many more in the new year hope you”ll all come along for the ride.

Finally, and most importantly THANK YOU so much for reading and participating and telling your friends about us and please don’t stop now; we have a number of big things coming that are only going to enhance everyone’s experience so stay TUNED!
