Now that TMZ and Ebaum’s Nation both have rendered the value of any more video of Jordan Crawford’s dunk on Lebron James to be virtually worthless, Nike has decided to give back the footage it confiscated that started this whole mess to begin with. Our long national nightmare is OVER! Free Jordan Crawford worked! Huzzah!! Blah. I guess if Nike can’t make money off of Lebron, then they will try their hardest to make sure no one else will as well…even though they failed a bit there.
I mean, the dunk wasn’t that special and the lack of defense that Lebron played while being in the way of said dunk makes it even less impressive that Crawford “dunked on” Lebron. It didn’t even look to me like he cared the kid was leaping over him. All said, its pretty weak. The value of the videos was that Nike confiscated them in the first place, thus the rules of supply and demand made those videos far more important and valuable than they really should’ve been. Nike actually created value with their actions…not so smart on their part.
Now, Nike has returned them. I’m amazed they didnt get leaked before they were handed back, that is some pretty impressive security that the people of Nike have there in Oregon. For what its worth, Nike is still standing by its story that they had a no videotaping policy for pickup games, but we all know that is crap.
Jordan Crawford, you are now free…to be forgotten, your 15 minutes of fame have GOT to be up now.
So, the Wizards dump one starter (a man that the owner highly respects and just re-signed to a 50 million dollar deal last season), one possible 6th man or starter (the 5th pick in the draft) and a bench player all for salary relief the Wizards don’t necessarily want since the owner said he didn’t care if he went over the salary cap the next season.
What’s the new hotness in Cleveland besides burning rivers and Mankok? It’s the newest drinking game to take the Buckeye state by storm. All you need is a Cleveland Cavaliers television broadcast and a case of your favorite macrobrew. In no time, you too can be taking pictures of your cock by halftime like our friend Adriano above.
For a slam dunk, (fill in Cavs player here) “throws the hammer down!”
When an opponent’s shot is swat ted away, viewers can count on Carr’s enthusiastic, “Get that weak stuff outta here!”
Fans of other teams can easily adapt this to their favorite announcer or analyst. Wizards fans could drink everytime Steve Buckhantz drops “Dagger!” although this season, they could end up as sober as they started. Nets fans can drink every time Marv drops a “Yes!”. You get the picture.
Instead of being offended by the game, Carr is honored to have a drinking game in his honor.
“…My kids told me about reading it on the Internet,” Carr said. “I consider it an honor that people think it’s worthy of being noticed, that they feel it’s worthy of having fun with.”
Vin Baker and Charles Barkley can’t wait to get in on the fun.
Mr. Slinky is disturbing yet I can’t take my eyes off of him. We were trying to figure out Mr. Slinky’s true identity. My money’s on Tarence Kinsey. He might as well make himself useful since he’s not doing anything on the court. I secretly hope it’s Brad Daugherty.
