Not much Announcing News today I feel asleep listening to Steve Bardo wax-ecstatic about some Saint Marys player named Tron (same guy Bill Simmons flipped out about when he covered SM earlier in the year) . Steve could be good one day......he just needs to stop stating the obvious so much. I also fell asleep before Tiki came on Leno....but to tell you the truth....I'm sick of him already.
I'm really here to bring you much more important news. The Gilbert Arenas Trampoline dunk was actually done on a bet from Shaq.
We were sitting there in the timeout watching them Elvis guys dunk, and my big mouth, I was like, “Man, I can do that better than them.” And then they missed a couple so I was like, “When they finish up, I’m going to go do it.”
Shaq was like, “Yeah, right.” He said, “I’ll put $100,000 in your foundation.”
I was like, $100,000 or get in trouble by David Stern?
$100,000 or get in trouble by David Stern?
Oh man, I’ll take that fine. So I did it for my Zer0 2 Her0 charity.
It was great though. Between the legs…Yea-ahhh!
I used to practice those trampoline dunks back at Golden State. I can flip and everything. But I didn’t want to flip and crack my neck.
Well okay.....$100K is worth it for the kids, but if you had gotten hurt Gilbert....I would have been pissed. That would have ruined my NBA Season, and after the past NFL season you're all I've got (well you and Grevis Vasquez). Now that we're in the second half let's calm down a tad, and focus on the game. Thanks.P.S.- The fact that you PRACTICED tramp dunks at Golden State is just weird, but I'm not surprised.
P.P.S.- I have no good reason why I just wrote those last few sentences to Gilbert. I'm not going back and changing it now though.
P.P.P.S.- Is it Elvises or Elvisi?
