basketball breakdown: gilbert's new shoes, kevin durant, michael beasely, and a couple great hoops mp3s
• the fan site (not a blog name with longevity) posted some information about calling in to talk with kevin on a recent edition of nike hoopstalk. the list of guidelines reads like an snl parody:
No high school/college/pro/league team names
Try to refer to teams by city instead of team names. Call the pro league"the league" instead of the _ _ _.
No amateur/pro player names
Try to use player's first names only because we may not be able to useall pro player names.
No brand names
You could mention Nike, of course, but we're really here to talk about hoops and your game.
No inappropriate or disrespectful language. This one is obvious, but we have to say it anyway, because it would lead to removing your segment from the show and could result in restriction from participation in any/all future Nike events.
• kansas state's freshman forward michael beasley is averaging 30 points and 20 rebounds. he's a beast--watch (34pts and 22 boards).
• has there been any announcer better than pistons? listen to the pregame introductions and tell me you don't wish you were at the game (mp3 audio).
• our pal is on a quest to find the classic video that accompanied this hilariously great ode to manute bol. in the meantime, check out tabron's block the ball (mp3)
