:10 Here’s the part you don’t understand. Yeah, he’s the fastest man on the planet and certainly others have been there before and of course his last name is “Bolt,” but here’s the thing…the man is TALL! No man that size should be able to do what he does. It’s just not possible I tell ya.
:09 I told ya, I told ya, I told ya. Some of you didn’t believe me and most of you didn’t want to believe me …I told you weeks ago that the best “Big Man” in the NBA will sign with the L.A. Lakers and so it has come to pass. Dwight Howard will now lead “Kobe” and the boys to the promised land. He may not be Moses (as in Moses Malone…Phil. 76ers. Played with Dr. J. …you remember). Anyway, he may be a prophet of a different name, but the objective is the same. Slay the evil king…aka LeBron James and the Miami Heat …and set my Hollywood people free!
:08 Word to the wise…or …a word to Andrew Bynum. If you make a statement like, “I don’t care where I play next year” you can be sure that Dr. Jerry Buss, Magic Johnson and the Laker front office will have your one-way ticket out of town booked by the time you get out of the shower. Trust me on this… “Bynum” who…will be the next words you hear!
:07 I hate to have to keep telling you I told you so… well, no I don’t, anyway, just last week I was told “Howard” would sign with the Lakers and I’m telling you now to get ready for the Lakers vs. Heat championship series next year. Forget everything else you’ve heard about the Bulls, Celtics and Thunder. This was meant to be.
:06 Speaking of basketball, and I was, if you don’t have the NBA channel, get rid of your cable provider. You’re not only missing today’s action, but they bring you some of the greatest classic games of all times, as well as greatest dunks, buzzer beaters and more. Get it mmmaaannn!!
:05 Relax, the Pirates will make the playoffs.
:04 Hey Pittsburgh Steelers…bring Plaxico Burris home. Problem? Red zone touchdowns…problem solved, Plaxico Burris, all 6 ft. 7 inches of him.
:03 A big salute to the Penn Hills YMCA, Chuck Sanders Charities, Chuck Powell, Turner Construction Co., Fox Pizza, Vocelli Pizza, Eat-n-Park and Dave Smith Auto for their support of the Champions’ Armon Gilliam Memorial “Hard Work” Basketball Camp. Special thanks go out to Camp Director Jay Latimer and his superior coaching staff, celebrity guest player Warren Wilson, former Connie Hawkins League All-Star MVP and slam dunk champion, Rayco “War” Saunders, Anthony DeCello, and Coach Jennifer Bruce for their support in making this year’s camp in memory of “The Hammer” one of the best ever. More than 75 area boys and girls got treated to some ole school “hard work” life skills and all the basketball they could handle, not to mention t-shirts, lunch and certificates for completing the camp…miss ya and love ya, will never forget ya, Hammer!!!
:02 The men won Olympic Gold in hoops, but I told you (oops, there I go again) they might have a little trouble and now you see why they couldn’t handle the original “Dream Team.” “Kobe” and this team would have no answer for Ewing, Barkley, Robinson, Malone or Bird inside. Hell, they couldn’t handle the Gasol brothers …c’mon man.
:01?Anybody that knows me knows I didn’t graduate Cum Laude, Urn Lade or Lade Dade for that matter, but you mean to tell me that Jordan Miles takes the hit…and don’t excuse the pun. Where is the justice, the fair and right thing to do and where in the world is the leadership…the case should have been in the strong and capable, and losing is not an option, hands of Attorney Milton Raiford …he’s back you know!!!
