    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm really excited to see who gets the Croatian J.R. Smith.

  11. The NBA draft! A couple will become stars, a couple will become serviceable role players, and the other 85% will make no impact and be gone in 2-3 years! FEEL THE EXCITEMENT

    ReplyDelete
  12. I give zero fucks about an NBA draft without Bill Simmons.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Chad Ford just mocked Russell to the Lakers at #2 and Okafor to Philly at #3.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I am also mocking that.

    ReplyDelete
  15. For good reason. That's dumb.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I would to. Then Philly can trade #3 to Charlotte for Michael Kidd Gilchrist so they can draft Frank Kaminsky and we all laugh and laugh.

    ReplyDelete
  17. You...that's mean dude.


    Also don't give them ideas dammit.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Okafor did not impress me at all this year. And he was fucking terrible in the Championship Game

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love how all the experts know who these foreign guys are when in reality 80% of them will be benchwarmers or worse

    ReplyDelete
  20. They can call them the Hornets all they want, it's not the Hornets without the 90s uniforms

    ReplyDelete
  21. Okafor to the Knicks, just to make it 100% that he blows.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Or Fran Vazquez and stay in Europe forever.

  23. Rorschach's JournalJune 25, 2015 at 5:08 PM

    SOMEONE, somewhere told them that "Oscar Meyer" is a hot look for women. That someone should be punted in their groin area until they are unconscious. Leathery, literally TANNED saddle-hide belongs on literal fucking SADDLES, women.

    Fuck sake.

    "These guys' good character will extend their careers beyond their talent levels."


    That's a nice way of saying this class sucks ass.

  25. You weren't shit if you didn't have a Hornets starter jacket in grade school.

    Fumblin?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Or the pinstripe starter hat.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm a Spurs fan and I had the Hornets Starter

    ReplyDelete
  32. He better get a coat for those winters!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Most ridiculous and lol-worthy thing to happen in the Draft tonight.


    LeBron announces he's joining the Wolves.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Corned Biff HashJune 25, 2015 at 5:09 PM

    Everyone had the Hornets Starter.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Starter jackets were about fashion, not repping your local teams.

    ReplyDelete
  36. He might be a major liability on D and give up just as much as he scores.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Plus they had the best team in NBA Jam. A duo of Zo and Grandmama had no weaknesses

    ReplyDelete
  38. Didn't stop Boozer and Love from cashing in!

  39. Bilas - "But Okafor went to DUUUUUUUUKE"

    ReplyDelete
  40. I like my trade scenario when Philly trades the 3rd pick to Charlotte for Michael Kidd-Gilchrist so Charlotte can draft Kaminsky

    ReplyDelete
  41. Corned Biff HashJune 25, 2015 at 5:10 PM

    It's a shame they came through at the peak of Jordan. Johnson, Mourning, Bogues, Rice, Gill and Curry should have done so much more.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I had a shitload of starter hats and jackets.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Starter Jackets Ranked: 1. Hornets 2. Bulls 3. Cowboys 4. Sharks 5. Magic

    ReplyDelete
  44. Shit, people wanted them so bad kids were getting robbed for them.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Raiders is up there too.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Huh. Thinking on it, as big of a fan of basketball as I am, I don't think I've ever watched an NBA draft in full, and I've seen plenty of NFL drafts.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I like how fate stopped Irving from playing in the Finals.


    Can't have a Dukie lead his team to the Championship.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm not a basketball fan and I always watch the draft.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Seems like a crazy time in the NBA so this draft might entertain based off of that.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I think the last one I watched was when Penny and Webber were swapped

    ReplyDelete
  51. Jeff Foxworthy just did an ad for Golden Corral.


    Sounds about right.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yeah. Raiders has to be near the top of popularity.

    ReplyDelete
  53. What happened, Larry the Cable Guy double-book himself?

    ReplyDelete
  54. Rorschach's JournalJune 25, 2015 at 5:12 PM

    Jiggle jiggle jiggle....you know, if I had tits like this, I would probably do this for ten minutes straight, every day, to start my day off right. Just seems like the right thing to do.

  55. I still have a Dan Marino signed Dolphins starter jacket.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Corned Biff HashJune 25, 2015 at 5:12 PM

    Ha, yep.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Those big pullover ones were huge back in the day. I always wanted one, but never seemed to get one.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I remember someone stole my friend's jacket from his locker at school. It was a Bulls starter jacket.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Corned Biff HashJune 25, 2015 at 5:13 PM

    FUCK YOU.
    We'd need more than the 3rd for Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: he's our best player.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Macklin, Man Without GoldJune 25, 2015 at 5:14 PM

    I've never watched any draft. Not even NFL.

    ReplyDelete
  61. And here's Parallax to eat half of LA.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Damn, who's the chick in white sitting there?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Because your parents didn't love you.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I could get into a Rhyno/Owens team.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Corned Biff HashJune 25, 2015 at 5:14 PM

    Holy Redhead, Batman! She could get it all day, every day.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I have a Rick Fox and David Wesley signed starter hat.

    ReplyDelete
  67. They all suck after the first few picks because I don't know the players well enough.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Okafor looks like he needs a flash light and to be showing ppl to seats

    ReplyDelete
  69. That.. explains... everything...

    ReplyDelete
  70. Did Scott review this week's NXT?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Bulls gear was popular to steal because Jordan

    ReplyDelete
  72. Corned Biff HashJune 25, 2015 at 5:16 PM

    I'm counting on Minnesota, Los Angeles, or Philadelphia one to provide high comedy for me tonight by making the wrong pick. Minnesota's a wild card though because they seem to have righted their proverbial ship in the last two years.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 25, 2015 at 5:16 PM

    All the chicks had one just because of the colors.

    ReplyDelete
  74. LeBron should go full heel and interrupt the draft to announce The Decision Part 2.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Corned Biff HashJune 25, 2015 at 5:17 PM

    I would flip on him immediately if he did that. Unless he chose Los Angeles or New York.

    Then I'd join in on the Haterade.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Sacramento's the true main event.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Rorschach's JournalJune 25, 2015 at 5:18 PM

    So, I'm wondering if this whole "pulling the Confederate flag from sale" thing was really thought through or not. Because, I mean, not to get into the whole semantics of the fucking rag or anything, but...the ones who are making these calls (IE the honchos at Wal-Mart, Sears, Apple, etc.) DO know that by making this flag, and the colors and symbols associated with it so...TABOO....all they're doing is making it more desirable for the people who want to be seen as rebelling against authority, yeah?

    And that group mainly includes teenagers and other non-conformists....so what exactly was achieved here?

    ReplyDelete
  78. Who was their coach again? Bristow?

    ReplyDelete
  79. That's Jefferson. Which is why the Horncats aren't very good.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Is khan still the gm?

    ReplyDelete
  81. Big Al can score. Big Al cannot defend.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Rorschach's JournalJune 25, 2015 at 5:19 PM

    I want to say that I'd rank the Sharks one higher, but I can't really argue with the Bulls. I might throw in the Niners or the Raiders ahead of the Hornets though.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Corned Biff HashJune 25, 2015 at 5:19 PM

    We were above .500 when Gilchrist played; when he went down, we tanked.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Watch Al score.
    Watch Al turn it over.
    Watch Al play no defense.
    Watch AI sorta rebound.
    Watch Al have an injury.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Flip Saunders now. Which is almost as bad.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Rare case of corporate responsibility, jackals will find their shit wherever and not like the couple cents a product they'd make will kill bottom lines

    ReplyDelete
  87. Stop celebrating a flag of treason and racism from statehouses and other public grounds? Pretty good to me. Whether or not Jim Bob and Cooter think the flag's more badass or not I don't especially care.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Corned Biff HashJune 25, 2015 at 5:20 PM

    Oh, PLEASE Phil, cut Michael Jordan a deal to move up, just so I can kill myself early tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Goddamn it, Wojo had like the first 7 picks spoiled by now on Twitter last year.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I do know that games removing the flag is stupid. History needs to be preserved. The Nazi blood flag is in most games, so the Confederate flag should be as well.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Rorschach's JournalJune 25, 2015 at 5:21 PM

    Speaking of corporate giants banning the Confederate Flag....any thoughts on how long it will take WWE to jump on this bandwagon, and redact all footage of The Fabulous Freebirds, or the "Wild Eyed Southern Boy" Tracey Smothers?

    Michael Hayes, your facepaint is NOT politically correct!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Trade rumors:
    Rockets looking to trade Terrence Jones and the 18th pick
    Celts considering dealing Smart to move up into the lottery.
    Kings not trading the 6th pick and unimpressed with the Celts offers

    ReplyDelete
  93. "Adam...I'm gonna let you finish...but..."

    ReplyDelete
  94. A guy who ran around with that facepaint informing black people he's "more [n-word] than they are" pretty much says it all about that mindset, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Watch Al not change his facial expression

    ReplyDelete
  96. Corned Biff HashJune 25, 2015 at 5:22 PM

    Don't worry, Celts fans, Charlotte is still there to take the Poo-Poo Platter.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Arash says the Lakers have settled on their pick. Wojo said the Knicks are trying to juggle a ton of different offers for their 4 pick.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Charleston Mayor - Huckabee's view on guns "so nutty I can't even talk."

    ReplyDelete
  99. Rorschach's JournalJune 25, 2015 at 5:24 PM

    But that's not what I'm talking about; I'm talking about people, private citizens, going out and buying merchandise that has this flag, logo, and/or colors on it and wearing it in public. That's a totally different issue than flying it high above the statehouse at the Capitol. By restricting it, you're only making it MORE desirable to rebellious people, and you're going to end up making it MORE popular than if you had just quietly reduced stock in it, or done nothing at all.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 25, 2015 at 5:24 PM

    Huh, the Clippers don't even have a pick.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Their time was short, but it's weird seeing Jalen Rose hold court without Simmons there as his partner/hype man.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I love how every year Danny Ainge rounds up the saddest package he can and tries to trade if for a top player. Who WOULDN'T want Kelly Olynyk?

    ReplyDelete
  103. Doc the GM fucking things up for Doc the coach.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Simmons visibly celebrating and making a jerkoff face at different picks was hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 25, 2015 at 5:25 PM

    None of these things are thought through.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Look at that finisher he used on Kevin Love!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Was Huckabee always this nutty? Thought he was reasonable when he first hit national stage. Not sure if I just didn't do my homework, or if he's wonking out trying to pander, or what

    ReplyDelete
  108. I forget, the big "WHOA!" was NFL draft or NBA?

    ReplyDelete
  109. Jared Sullinger AND Olynyk! I mean that's a front court for the ages!

    ReplyDelete
  110. J Rose is awesome. I love that he is feuding with C Webb too.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Mitch, The GodfatherJune 25, 2015 at 5:25 PM

    Went to Boston because of the Doc Rivers trade.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Corned Biff HashJune 25, 2015 at 5:25 PM

    Huckabee is a douche, fuck him.

    ReplyDelete
  113. He slowly went more and more insane to be the traditional 80s Republican as more Republicans backed away from that platform.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Rorschach's JournalJune 25, 2015 at 5:27 PM

    Oh shit...Austin had that "Rebel flag" motif shirt that he wore for a while too! That's more footage that will have to be blurred or redacted!

    ReplyDelete
  115. NBA! That made it into NBA2K!

    ReplyDelete
  116. it worked twice before so why not

    ReplyDelete
  117. Just gonna leave this here...

  118. The Confederate flag represents what it represents, it's not like there's anyone on the fence about purchasing shit with it on it. People who like that crap are going to anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  119. SOMEBODY needs him. I think he'd be a hell of a sixth man to pair with Kaminsky, Hawes and Zeller in Charlotte.


    MKG for Olynyk!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Fran Frischilla bores me to tears

    ReplyDelete
  121. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 25, 2015 at 5:28 PM

    Team needs for the Knicks: Everything

    LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  122. He initially did a good job of hiding his nuttiness behind actually having a sense of humor to use on Stewart/Colbert/Maher and playing the bass guitar on Leno, and now he's just gone completely off the reservation.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Corned Biff HashJune 25, 2015 at 5:29 PM

    In some respects; in other respects he's a neocon, and there is a huge backlash in the grassroots section of the Republican Party that is vehemently anti-Neocon now.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Ah, it was the Bennett pick 3 years ago. lol

    ReplyDelete
  125. Those Brooklyn 1st rd picks are money. They are gonna suck and the C's will have top 10 picks for a few years. Ainge is the master at highway robbery

    Fran Frischilla sounds like an exotic Italian supermodel. Then you see him for the first time and he's this pudgy middle-aged white guy. So disappointing.

    ReplyDelete
  131. It's nice one of the pieces OKC got for Harden is now Luke Ridnour.
