Portland Employs 90s Rock Star To Select The First Pick Of The 2007 Draft

Wednesday, June 13, 2007

Well not exactly, but they do have an odd marketing campaign on who to select with the first pick. The Trailblazers have a website with videos of current players and local celebrities thoughts on the pick. Well, if you can call the lead singer of Everclear, "The Hippie", and Storm Large from Rockstar Supernova (also in a band called Storm Large and the Balls).

The site is actually well put together and I think the best part is the video of current players. I mean where else can you get the quote, "Travis (Outlaw) is establishing his own style- a combination of low-post finesse and aerial holy-cowery"? (click on photo for larger version)

If that's not a word, it should be. (Father of mine...do do do do do....where have you been? Try to get that out of your head for the rest of the day)

You just know Marc Jackson will use Holy Cowery on Thursday night at some point.

I'm not sure who the announcer was that said it, but sometime during the second quarter on a fast break, did anyone hear "Robert Horry full head of steam..."? I think he meant to say "full steam ahead."
