POSTNADO! – LeBron’s TV Pilot, Move On Mavs & NBA Shop’s Stock Photo Update

Sept 4 Cover

 

It’s September in the NBA and if you’re anything like me, you just wonder the streets with no shoes on and a bottle of whiskey in-hand, asking strangers if Iggy will make THAT big of a difference on the Warriors.

We must press on thought.  So today, we took  three killer post ideas (not that killer) and condensed them into one giant POSTNADO.

Let’s get right into it.

LeBron Will Produce A  Sitcom

Reports are surfacing that LeBron is producing a half hour sitcom called Survivor’s Remorse on STARZ.  The show is loosely based on his unlikely journey from a kid in the inner city becoming the best athlete of his generation.

Most of us on this blog are starving artists, so we can appreciate LeBron going in this direction.  BUT did you know that this is not his first sitcom to produce?  That’s right!  We here at Ballerball found the exclusive tape of his very first pilot.  Check it out!

Alright.  No more Miami Heat party jokes.  I need to move on.

Speaking of moving on….

A Letter from Larry O’Brien to The Dallas Mavericks

Dear Mavs,

I was browsing around YouTube the other day and stumbled upon a hilarious video of Dirk parodying that camel commercial.  When the video finished I decided that I’d look at some of your other videos… and then I saw it.

This is awkward but why am I still your profile picture?  I thought we talked about this?  It was 2011!  You need to move on and stop living in the past.

While we’re on it, please stop leaving long messages of you crying on my machine.  IT’S OVER.

What we had was absolutely special and believe me, I’ll never forget it, but it’s REALLY time for you to get on with your life.  Nobody said it was going to be easy.

I’ve found someone and we’ve been going steady for two years.  I’m hoping this will last for a long time, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, not 6, not 7.   (Last Heat party joke… I swear.)

So please, leave me alone and change your profile picture.  It’s creepy.

NBA.COM Stock Photo Update

One of my favorite hobbies is to remind the NBA that they should use what little money they have to update their stock images.  I’ve done this in the past and feel that it’s my duty to continue to keep them accountable for their lazy actions.  Here are a couple that stuck out…

First off, I don’t want to know the person that actually needs this.  Maybe it’s the kind of person who has decorative jiberish at the bottom of their desk.  Or maybe it’s someone who lives in 2002 and uses a Nokia brick phone.  Either way, you are the NBA and this… this is just unacceptable.

I’ll save my thoughts on charging people $17.99 for a New Jersey Nets Dog Shirt and focus on…

WHAT IS THAT DOG DOING IN THAT STOCK PHOTO?

I mean, he’s clearly taking a big ol’ dog crap, right?  His body sure seems to suggest that and why else would they cut picture off where they did?

Can we just change the name of this to “New Jersey Nets Dog Sh**ing  Shirt?”

No words for this.  Someone’s getting a weird Christmas present from me though.

 

 

Have a nice Wednesday.
