    I wonder if the Pistons could trade Delfino, Dyess and a couple of draft picks to get Al Harrington? What does everyone think? :laugh:

    I freaked out because armygirl made a thread that said it actually happened. Roscoe found out it was BS though.

    Yeah, himat, that's why I posted it. Some idiot on detnews posted it as a joke. Man, those posters over there need to get lives. And some of the other posters are laughing at it, saying, "Oh, you got me. Ha ha." Good thing we post on a moderated forum.

    The Quesator of the black top, Cato the Elder, better known in the locker room as "the Censor", a legendary figure of galactic proportions.

    Majestic muscles sadly lacking time in the weight room, compounded by an intense fear of medical science, have not held back this MVP of the Italian league.

    Since 204 BC, Cato has been a rock, a mountain, a shining example of all that is great in the universe, and all that is wrong with women spending too much money.

    While never officially named Captain of any professional team he played for, Cato has continued to exert his influence on teammates and coaches alike. With a Philistine approach to zone defenses and flex offenses, Cato the Censor has established a legacy of greatness unsurpassed in European basketball, and is, in the humble opinion of this reporter, one of the truly exquisite exports from the ancient city of Tusculum.

    A hero, a monarch, a slave master. A legend who makes the rim reverberate in fear and anticipation.

    Nice work, Roscoe. I think Cato the Elder looks sort of like Jim Boeheim.

    I prefer Bill Walton myself. Once you realize he isn't taking himself, his job or the listener seriously, you can really enjoy that he is mocking everything.

    Not to mention the fact that buddy looks older than God himself.

    I mean, look at that picture! He looks like he's a melting wax bust of a dead man!

    Hubie acts like everyone needs to hear his opinion about everything. We don't give a rats ax about anything he says. But Walton sure does have some big ax teeth.He too has gotten on my last nerve. Maybe I prefer the crossdressing, biting, pervert marv. not! Can't the nba and the media do better? If that old fashioned, anti youth, anti hiphop, anti fun, uptight , anal retentive antique Stern ,wants more fans ,,,,,,He should encourage better announcing. Love that Blaha though. and Kersey and Lambeer.

    :pound: Too much. You know Roscoe with one Walton imitation in chat during the playoffs you turned me from a Bill Walton Hater to a Bill Walton Tolerator/(Almost) Fan. Whenever I see he's on now I dial in to see if he will say something hysterically funny that previously I would have been irate about. But this improvisational parody you do of him is even better than the real item!:hail: Thanks for stepping up on short notice with the comic relief, especially when we were all in the throes of the fake trade this afternoon.:P

    Hubie Brown is easier to listen to if you understand Hubie Brown.

    He's a teacher of the game first and foremost. The respect that he has as a coach is fine and all, but it is as a teacher that Hubie commands the utmost respect in basketball circles.

    He's been everywhere and seen everything, and you can be sure that at some point in time just about every NBA coach was learning from Hubie at some point in their careers.

    He calls games like he is talking to someone that is new to the game, which tends to wear on people after a while; however, to the casual sports fan or someone not too familiar with basketball Hubie is both an invaluable resource and a wonderful ambassador to the game.

    Hubie was a proponent of the behind the back pass before dunking was chic, and a dribble between the legs was "hotdogging it".

    If anything he was a pioneer for many of the positive changes in the NBA over the years, hardly fitting into the anti-fun, uptight and anal-retentive mold.

    Now antique...he is. He looked like he was on deaths door when he was doing games for CBS. He looks like a Lich.
