I don’t have anything serious to write about today so I figured I’d go with whatever funny thing I saw basketball related on Youtube, and damn this one wins.
When I first heard the word ‘meme’, I thought it referred to the sound a sheep makes, and so what I thought it meant was how when you post something that goes ‘viral’ on your blog, you’re actually being like sheep because you’re doing exactly what the viral video producers wanted you to.
I really believed that, true story. And the crazy thing is I make my living off of the Internet.
So anyway, here’s the vid that’s making the rounds these days:
It’s called a ‘Shootmore Basketball Shooting Machine’
Full video below the break:
Just a teaser.
Amazes me how much spare time people have to make these things, but I’m happy they keep doing it anyway.

Just fresh out the box, I found a recent Colbert Report involving an interview with Knicks Coach D’Antoni! Let the hilarity ensue:
|The Colbert Report||Mon – Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c|
|Basketcase – Stephie’s Knicks Hoop-De-Doo|
Goodness gracious he didn’t hold back did he.
Football / Futbol / Soccer is a sport where you actuallyÃ‚Â kick the ball. It’s played outdoors in a large grassy area and you score when it goes into a goal. Sounds radical eh? You know what’s best? You don’t have to be a 6 footer. In fact one might even concludeÃ‚Â us Pinoys could do ourselves a favor and take it up because we might actually become,Ã‚Â perish the thought, good at it *gasp*!
But anyway, I was meandering my way around YouTube a little bit when I happened onto this:
Do you know what’s rare in the NBA? Or in most pro, or even top amateur sports for that matter? No, not a 7 footer with great handles. No, not even a
white guy Caucasian with hops. What’s truly rare is a self-effacing, humble yet smart and intelligent athlete, but with skills. And when I say that, I mean someone who can play and act like a pro, knows, respects and understands the game yet doesn’t feel the need to slap it in everyone’s face like he’s the biggest thing around (because he’s already a big thing).
How rare is it? It’s about as rare as a hiphop artist not going on about how big a house he has or how many honeys hang around him. It’s about as rare as a reader of this blog who understands what ‘self-effacing’ means. You know, really rare.
Which is why I bring you a pic of disguised Steve Nash playing street hoops in China.
You know I hate to overdo these Nike videos but when one strikes me (as they do often) I just gotta write about it, and man this one hit HAAARD.
Slow going this long weekend, so today I bring you an excellent find, a vid ftg. NBA Comm. David Stern in a barbershop talking about amongst other topics, the dress code, the one year in high school before the NBA rule..
