presents…. Dunk you, very much! starring Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Ty Lawson (video)

Sport has its array of thrilling moments. Major League Baseball has its game-saving catches and walk-off home runs. The NFL has its big hits and its hail maries. But there’s something about an NBA slam dunk that lifts fans out of their seats.

Right now, the Association boasts a number of athletes that can jump clear out of the gym. So for those of you who don’t have the good fortune of watching basketball highlights with Sportschump-like regularity, I’d like to present three dunkalicious reasons to love this game.

Ladies and gentlemen, I hereby give you Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and 5’11” Ty Lawson rudely introducing themselves to Paul Milsap, Anderson Varejao and DJ Mbenga.

Can you say posterized? I knew that you could.

  1. If that’s the case, Al, then the Nuggets are doing just fine.

    They’ve come out of the tunnel blazing!

    I really like their chances and that’s not because I have a 35:1 future bet on them to win it all.

    Now that I condone gambling, of course.

  2. Chris

    Admittedly the Nuggets have come flying out of the gates like gangbusters. But I’d prefer to wait ’til after Christmas to see the sort of shape and rhythm that they’ll be in.

    There’s an interesting article in USA Today that I know will either upset Gator fans or just have them reeling on the floor with laughter. The piece is by Peter Kerasotis and is entitled Keeping Score. It deals with the fact now’ll definitely be the time for Notre Dame to take run at Urban Meyer. Kerasotis has the temerity to imply that the final decision won’t be Urban’s but it’ll be down to his wife and what she says on the matter.

    Here’s part of the transcript. In order to view

    Hiring Meyer to replace Weis would be good for Notre Dame

    With each Notre Dame loss, the firing of coach Charlie Weis travels further down the road of if toward the intersection of when, picking up speed and barreling toward the inevitable.

    And when might that when be?

    Likely, after this season.

    Spell out the facts, and it reads like an obituary.

    Saturday’s loss to Pittsburgh, following an embarrassing home defeat against Navy, dropped Weis’ record to 35-25. That’s a .583 winning percentage, the same percentage predecessors Bob Davie and Tyrone Willingham had when they were fired. Davie was an identical 35-25 when Notre Dame dismissed him in 2001, and Willingham’s 21-15 record got him canned before he could even finish his third season in 2004.


    And low and behold Bobby still wants to come for what’ll amount to be his 35th year at Florida State. Enough already ! The program is almost on it last legs and the ‘noles’ fans damn well know it. But their actual lack of a spine to come out and say something , just goes to show how wrapped up in their own little fantasy world that they are. The whole thing reminds me of the children’s fairy tale The Emperor Has New Clothes.

    There’s nothing there at FSU worth taking notice of when it comes to the football program. And they’re riddled with self doubt and embarrassment to what a complete fraud their student athletes program has become. Simply it’s time to put Bowden out to pasture or just have him put down . He and his staff have become a drag on the entire institution.

    And the same thing can be said of the university’s President T K Wetherall . What a moron !

  3. Did Kerasotis actually write an article entitles “Hiring Meyer would be good for Notre Dame?”

    Brilliant. Congratulations to him for being the one-millionth journalist to write that very same piece.

    I’ll have to follow up with my next two groundbreaking stories entitled “Milk contains lots of Vitamin D” and “Sex is fun.”

    How some of these people still have jobs amazes me. And we wonder why athletes blow up when the media asks them stupid questions.

    Meyer’s name will obviously continue to emerge as a candidate for the position, as will everyone else’s.

    Meyer has stated repeatedly he’s happy where he’s at. He already turned them down once to come to Florida and he just signed a long-term deal to stay there.

    Would it make sense to leave now? Sure. Tebow’s gone after this year but he isn’t transferring to Notre Dame.

    Anything is possible, including Billy Donovan coaching the Magic for a day, but I don’t see Meyer as a hired gun like Saban. I say he stays and ND ends up with Ferentz.

    As for Kerasotis, tell him if he’s got writer’s block, he can come see me. I’ve got plenty of ideas more original that writing how “Meyer would be good for Notre Dame.” One piece he might be interested in is “The sun is orange and the sky is blue.”


    P.S…. Thanks, Al. I feel better now… he he.

  4. Re: Bowden, Al. Come on, man. You know he runs the show up there.

    He can do as he pleases.

    Remember when that one booster came out and said it was time for Bowden to go after that USF loss?

    Wasn’t he the same one that was found with a Colombian necktie only days later?

    Whatever Bobby wants, Bobby gets.

  5. Chris

    Kerasotis you have to remember is working for Gannett and you can find the same piece verbatim in the Florida Times Union I believe. An affiliate paper of Gannett news.

    He’s not using much imagination and I can only surmise that between using the magic mushrooms and wiping the grease from his mouth from the ginormous burger he was gorging on, he had time to write this piece.

    As to Bowden , the longer he remains in Tallhasee , the more untenable in the end the situation will become for Jimbo Fisher. And then what ?

    Wetherall and his bunch of loons have let this go way too far. And whatever move they now make. They’ll end up with egg on their face ! That’s how asinine it has become. You’re telling that they’re that scared of an octagenerian ? WTF ?

    I’ve heard it often been said as well. But from what I hear he’s still happy enough where he is, at present. However, he’s waiting on the wife to let him know what she thinks about him taking the Bills’ job in Buffalo , come the end of the season. LOL, LOL,LOL !!!

    What does TO now do for an encore ? As it’s plain to see his NFL career is now on a downward path. I for one can’t see him in Buffalo next season ! They’ll be in the midst of a roster upheaval.

    Trust Me I’m A Doctor It’s Money For And The Chicks Are Free ……

    Alan Parkins

  7. The more interesting question is, Al… did T.O. do the right thing by taking a one-year contract with Buffalo?

    Who will sign him next year and for how much money?

  8. Hey Rev,
    A guy 6’5 who can’t dunk probably doesn’t exist in the NBA. On the other hand one of us short guys slamming the ball down, now that’s entertainment.

    Take care brother.

  9. As of this moment in time there’s no team stupid enough to take a flier on TO. His NFL career now is beyond redemption. We’re now more liable to remember him as the senior class clown than a Hall of Fame caliber player.

    If things don’t work out for TO, he could always move over the UFL. It’s now where former marginal players in the NFL go to die or where the cast-offs now go seek glory and hear the cheers of a thronging crowd of roughly 5,000 fans. LOL,LOL,LOL !!!

    I hear that Bills’ owner Ralph Wilson is interested in pursuing former Broncos’ coach Mike Shanahan ? It ought to be a good fit. But it has to be predicated upon Shanahan only being the coach and nothing beyond that role.

    How is that our esteemed governor sees it fit to interject himself into the Bobby Bowden situation ? Charlie Crist has been to the detriment of the state of Florida as a public servant. Has this guy actually done anything over the entire course of his legislative career ? Other than having a hot wife and seeking out photo ops the way a crack wh_re seeks out a mark. I can’t think of one notable thing that he’s done.

    I know that he’s a graduate of FSU . But this is now taking it to new depths of stupidity in that regard.

    Florida governor wants Bowden back coaching at Florida State …

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Bobby Bowden got a strong and considerable vote of confidence Wednesday — from Florida Gov. Charlie Crist.

    A graduate of FSU, Crist was unequivocal in a brief interview with USA TODAY. He wants the 80-year-old Bowden to stay on as Florida State’s football coach, he says. And he encourages the university to keep him on.

    “I would certainly urge the school to do that,” Crist said. “I don’t think I’ll have to urge them too hard, because the man is beloved. He really is.”

    Bowden, nearing the end of his 34th season with the Seminoles, has signaled that he’d like to return in 2010. His wife, Ann, and quarterback, Christian Ponder, say they expect him back as well. But his teams have slipped from national championship and even Atlantic Coast Conference title contention in recent years — taking a 5-5 record into Saturday’s game vs. Maryland — and school President T.K. Wetherell and athletics director Randy Spetman have been noncommittal. They say a decision on Bowden’s future will be made in concert with the coach after the regular season.

    If Florida State doesn’t give him another year, Crist said, “I’d be heartbroken. That would be shocking, I think.”

    Hey Charlie , how coming back to earth and dealing with some of the ‘real world issues’ within the state ? Unemployment , the state’s lackluster economy and now pi_s poor education system. I haven’t heard you mention how you’ll be dealing with those issues . Other than the fact you’re raising money by the boatload for your US senate campaign run. Thankfully I won’t be donating as I think it’d be more prudent of me in helping out a US Afghan or Iraqi vet. Rather than assisting your a_s on some whimsical fantasy up to DC. Especially if your ultimate goal is to latch unto the gravy train of lobbyists handouts.

    TO isn’t going to be offered near anything what he or his agent, Drew Rosenhaus believes he’s worth. So, I say let him go and try out with the guys in the UFL. I’m sure he’ll be welcomed by the likes of J P Losman , Brpoks Bollinger and other guys who’ve now gone to the graveyard of where NFL careers’ll now presumably die.

    Alan Parkins

  11. I see that Charlie Crist is now interjecting himself into the Bowden situation ? How is that this moron of a governor can find time to address this one issue ? But when it comes to the acute problems that the state faces , he’s essentially like Hellen Keller – deaf , dumb and blind.

    Alan Parkins

  12. I’m awaiting the T.O. book signing tour. He only has one touchdown this year. Probably not what Buffalo expected when they signed him.

    And as for Crist praising Bowden, I’m okay with it. I don’t think he spent hours on that decision. It’s kind of like granting him amnesty or thanking him for years of service. No biggie. Although I thought Crist went to Florida.

  13. In retrospect, TO may have shot himself in the foot (not like Plaxico Burress) by signing that one-year deal.

    There’s no WAY he’s getting more than that next year.

  14. Chris

    TO’s options are now just like AI’s limited at best or none whatsoever !

    Finally some justice after-all for Gus Christofi’s family. That rat fink bas_tard Jayson Williams has accepted a plea deal in the chauffeur’s death. This incident happened 6 years ago and it has taken all this time for the situation to be resolved judiciously.

    Ex NBA player accepts plea deal

    Williams’ sentencing scheduled Friday

    TRENTON, N.J. — Former NBA star Jayson Williams has agreed to accept a deal in the 2002 accidental shooting death of a limousine driver at his home, according to multiple reports.


    The Associated Press reported Thursday that Williams agreed to a plea deal for aggravated assault that would send him to prison for at least 18 months and up to three years.

    Linnette Higley, who works for Superior Court of New Jersey trial court administrator Eugene Farkas, told ESPN’s Kelly Naqi that Farkas confirmed Williams has agreed to accept a plea deal and will do so sometime after 1:30 p.m. Friday.

    The secretary for Judge Edward Coleman of Somerset County Superior Court confirmed to ESPN that Williams was expected in court on Friday afternoon, but would not say what the appearance would be about.

    The Newark Star-Ledger first reported that Williams was expected to appear in court Friday to accept a deal in the 2002 accidental shooting death of limousine driver Costas Christofi at his home.

    Calls to Williams’ attorney were not immediately returned.

    Williams, who retired in 2000 after playing nine seasons in the NBA for the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Nets, was to face a retrial in January on a reckless manslaughter count. The plea deal would resolve all charges in a case that dragged out for nearly eight years.

    When will these a_sholes realize that guns and alcohol don’t mix ? Likewise guns and drugs. What a f_ckin’ moron Williams is !

    Alan Parkins

  15. That’s all Williams got? Dayum! Hasn’t he already served that much time?

    Speaking of serving time, playing on the 2009-10 Knicks would be a similar type sentence for anyone else OTHER than Allen Iverson.

    In my opinion, Iverson to the Knicks is a win-win.

  16. Chris
    Williams hadn’t served any time at all. If you remember the first trial ended up in a mess without a verdict being brought by the jury. However he’d settled a civil suit privately.

    As to AI and the Knicks , couldn’t happen to a nicer pair. Like I’ll still maintain the Knicks aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Mike D’Antoni can’t get a handle on this roster. It’s loaded with mediocre talent from top to bottom.

    Is it any wonder when Spike now goes to the Gardens he dresses in disguise as a bum ? Oh wait he always looked that way to begin with ! LOL,LOL,LOL !!!

    Dropped this on Bowden and the Wolverines’ Rich Rodriguez.

    There Are No Do Overs In Sports …..

    Alan Parkins

  17. Chris

    What is it with NBA athletes and guns ? The Cavs’ Delonte West, if found guilty, could be looking at anywhere between 18 months to 5 years for his weapons violations charges . WTF is up with these guys ?

    Alan Parkins

  18. Al… who’s taller? AI or Spike?

    Iverson joining the Knicks is akin to the Who’s 80th farewell tour with ticket prices probably as comparable.

    Be right over to check out the RichRod/Bowden piece.

  19. Chris

    If you’re packing heat, I’m sure you have an explanation for it. I mean if you’re cruising in some of the seedier parts of Tampa . Then you’ve got to protect ya’ neck.

    Delonte had his guns – (glock, 4 semi-automatics and some weed) so one has to see where he was coming from. Never mind the fact that his girlfriend had a TRO against him to protect her and their kids.
    Need one say anymore on the matter ?

    Alan Parkins

  20. Chris

    As a female acquaintance of of mine once said to me ……’you’ve got to be this tall to ride on this ride and this long to go all the way in’. LOL, LOL, LOL !!! To this day I’m not sure exactly what she meant . But I think that it can be applied to AI and the Knicks.

    By the way I’m just kidding about the statement about me not understanding what she meant. I’ll have you know the ride was very exhilarating and very entertaining.

    Alan Parkins

  21. Chris

    I hear if the price is right there’ll be an ethnic redo of Brokeback Mountain ? With it being given an African American perspective on homo sexual love. It’s anticipated that Drew Rosenhaus , TO’s agent, sees it as the next step in TO’s blossoming acting career.

    And he wants to see if AI is willing to play TO’s love interest in the supporting cast role. That should make for a real doozy . LOL,LOL,LOL !!!

    Alan Parkins

  22. Yeah, I think I’ll pass on that viewing but you may want to sell it to Hollywood. With some of the scripts that have been put out lately, I’m sure you could find a market.
