The other night I was driving home from a Jazz game with my buddy John when we started debating who was crazier: Dennis Rodman or Ron Artest. Rodman's NBA career was legendary in the "crazy" department, for his hair alone. But there was always the suspicion that he was just playing a role for attention.
charged into the stands to throw down with drunk Detroit Piston fans.
On to my point...
Turns out that the Lakers' newest boxer-clad shooting guard has a blog. When I learned this, I immediately added it to my roll, just on the slightest chance that it may feature a quote like this:
(referenced by Basketbawful after a recent game against the Houston Rockets)
"Well what happened was…obviously I didn't know his shoe would come off that's the first thing conservative reporters. I didn't know his shoe was gonna come off. I don't speak to his feet so I don't know what his feet are thinking, I don't know what his toes are thinking, I don't know what he’s thinking. Then his shoe comes off and I'm like okay a shoe is not supposed to be on the basketball court without somebody standing inside of it. So I said alright, I'm just gonna buy me some time. I really didn't know whose shoe it was, but I said it has to be one of the player's shoe. As soon as I toss it off the court, not throw into the stands which some people said, it'll buy me some time. What happens is I come back down, Trevor is trying to put his shoe on and I politely hit a three in his face."
Wow. If that's any indicator of things to come, then I am thrilled for the future. Let the good times roll.
