My buddy Joe emailed me a rant that I think needs to be shared.
I happened to have the ESPN NBA pregame show on tonight and all throughout they kept referring to the big 3… that would be McGrady, Ming, and Artest of the Houston Rockets. Are you kidding me? Has this been the case since the start of the season? The Big 3 is a legendary Celtics moniker, that was reborn last season when the Celtics got 3 legit stars. McGrady is an all-star, but Yao is just a guy who's always hurt that happens to be really big, and Artest is a nutjob. And how can they give these guys that nickname when it's currently being used in the league?? Why not call McGrady "the glove", Yao "Shaq-diesel" and Artest "the answer" while they're at it? Or maybe call them the purple people eaters, or the steel curtain defense. dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb.
I couldn't have said it better myself. I think the best point here is that THE NICKNAME IS CURRENTLY BEING USED!! You can't use it on someone else. That's just lazy. Hell, I think it's lazy to call this Pierce, Garnett and Ray "The Big 3"… but that's where we are right now.
What happened to people coming up with good nicknames? Where's the creativity?
Here's some other stuff to get you through your miserable, corporate lives (I mean… other than adding that Jameson to your coffee):
Andray Blatche stinks. He also smells bad.
Why did "The Machine" melt down in game 4 of the Finals? Low batteries.
Want to know what a true American hero is? The director who called for his replay.
I'd be speechless too. (Via Fan IQ)
Remember when we told you Shaq might have been Twittering? That wasn't Shaq. But this really is… and he's really Twittering.
And the Garbage Time All Stars hand out some justice to KG, and the rest of the NBA.
