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 Brits Make Up Lies About the NBA

As a means to showcase the game to a worldwide audience, the Chicago Bulls squared off against the Utah Jazz in an exhibition game in London. For some reason the NBA didn’t seem to arrange for announcers who knew anything about the sport or its history.

For instance, the announcers insist (41 seconds in) that Larry Bird was only 5′ 11″, because why let facts, like how he was 6′ 9″ interfere with a stupid point? Or when they proclaim Jack Nicholson as a bandwagon fan (2:50), because apparently going to the games for about 40 years isn’t enough.

I guess because Britain is so old that’s simply not enough. Who hired these slags in the first place?

Carlos Boozer: Master of the Obvious

Carlos BoozerThis summer Carlos Boozer wanted out of Utah and onto the Chicago Bulls; his desire was not met. Instead he’s in London with the Jazz, set to play some exhibitions against the Bulls. In his 3 years on Duke’s campus — one of the finest higher education facilities in the country — clearly he didn’t soak in enough knowledge or he wouldn’t have let this quote fly regarding this summer’s inaction:

That’s over, though. That’s summertime. Stuff happens like that in the summer. Everybody’s moved forward. Everybody’s on the same team they were on except for guys that did get moved this summer.

I guess I can’t argue with that, I mean, factually he’s right, everyone who didn’t change teams is still on his original team, but then that’s like saying “Everyone in the NBA is better at basketball than a hippopotamus.” Yes, it’s true, but also so obvious it needn’t be said.

He Now Qualifies for Utah’s Soul Train

This video starts out nice, the Utah Jazz dancers seem to have nice moves, and delectable bodies; then the camera pans to this winner in the stands. I’m less enthused. However the man has moves, you can’t argue with talent after all.
