Ahhhh…what’s up ‘Bron?!
Bugs Bunny is getting the Toon Squad back together and as Michael Jordan has retired all of three times already, who better to suit up and lead this team?
You kidding me? You going to let Dennis Nedry run this team? He can’t even run some shaving foam to the East Dock…but alas we’ll save ‘Jurassic Park’ for the Toronto Raptors.
It’s the King himself LeBron James who who will be flying like an eagle for the ‘Space Jam 2’ sequel now decisions have been made and his name on the script has the Warner Bros studio seal of approval.
Michael Jordan made the first 90’s hit of ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ meets ‘Teen Wolf’ nostalgia a comedy classic. Now who has the charisma like him to make this follow up no sophomore slump? Kobe…nah! Besides he’s just retired too. Fact is nobody has it like Mike…maybe M.J., Magic Johnson before him. But we only have a magic ball here…not a Delorean. The nostalgia isn’t rolling all the way back to the 80’s here.
But back to the future here and it’s Showtime for LeBron James. After surprisingly stealing scenes in last years comedy classic ‘Trainwreck’…even from the unstoppable Queen of comedy Amy Schumer, the King is about to take his talents to a whole new Hollywood throne.
The Cleveland Cavaliers megastar-who has been rumoured and even Youtube parodied to be in the sequel to M.J’s live action/animation thriller since his days in South Beach with the Miami Heat-will finally break carrots with Bugs. And the Buzz can’t wait to see the limited edition Nike special colourways.
‘Fast and Furious’ director Justin Lin who last year directed Season 2 of ‘True Detective’ and is about to take ‘Star Trek’, ‘Beyond’ where anyone has boldly gone before will dry erase this play from the directors chair. And boy does this movie coach know entertainment. You all saw ‘Fast Five’ right?! I mean Vin Diesel and the dearly missed Paul Walker drove and dragged a damn safe around Rio.
Yeah…this is going to be fun!
Now as the Linsanity of Justin matched the most entertaining NBA player on the planet with the most famous basketball movie this side of ‘Hoosiers’…I’m sorry ‘Coach Carter’, everyone will be breaking their Toon Sqaud uniforms out the closet like Zach Lavine. It’s going to be number one with a Top Ten dunk.
Can you imagine the guest stars who may have their powers zapped as the martians return 20 years later like an ‘Independence Day-Resurgence’?! Maybe Kevin and Kyrie? Or Wade and Bosh. They won’t be able to even hit a free throw…wait a minute you seen Jordan recently?! We’re talking DeAndre. Oh my God…they’re already here!
Don’t worry Steph Curry there’s always ‘Space Jam 3’!
Now can someone call Bill Murray?
That’s all folks…for now!
Zero To Zero. We Could Watch Russ Vs Dame Until There’s No Time Left
Phones have been checked in Philly as missing posters have been put on telephone poles for Ben Simmons’ jumper. Whilst he has started a beef with Jared Dudley of the Brooklyn Nets that even rivals the one between Kevin Durant staring down Patrick Beverley.
Welcome to the 2019 NBA playoffs.
But the real rivalry of this first round that is a real knockout is the one between Damian Lillard and Russell Westbrook. Two noughts to add up to something over nothing that could take this wild West clash between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Oklahoma City Thunder the seven game distance.
Watching these two points make one in the changing of the guard has been where amazing hardwood history happens. And whether the Thunder will reign over Rip City, or whether the city of roses will bloom over OKC all depends on whether the fuse is lit for the stick of dynamite, or the ticking click rings out. Either way whatever adds up to more on the box score will come from nothing.
But these numbers don’t lie.
A Game 3 showdown saw Russell Westbrook explode with a Kareem 33 and the Thunder poured out a 120-108 victory back home as Paul George double pumped a dunk as time expired like old ham on Dame and his men. But up 2-1 it’s not like Portland could blaze a trail to put OKC on the ropes. Even though they want to even things up and take it down to the wire for the next game and week.
D-Lill had 32. But Westbrook taunted that he was “too small” as he rocked the baby with one more point. Denis Schröeder also added 17 and a mock wrist watch tap celebration to Dame like Russell mocking Lance Stephenson’s air guitar against the Lakers. But time and Dame time again, hip-hop star Dame Dolla will play on until this all wraps up.
Laugh now, cry later. Because this one rhymes greater than you’re average player hater. He’s notorious. He’s B.I.G. and he’s ready to die for one more chance to kick in the door, for the skys the limit.
Dame Time runs 24/7 like a 7Eleven and with the ‘Mission Impossible’ fuse of Russell Westbrook never looking like it’s going to fallout like these two, we may need another P.G. by George to settle this score as these two Point Guard number noughts look to cancel each other out until the final score and last buzzer beaten rings out.
Trash talking. Sweat soaking. Until the clock runs out on Dame Time and one of our zeroes becomes hero, we could watch these two men go the full magnificent seven.
I mean ‘Why Not’?
Ryerson Rams’ 7-footer Tanor Ngom declares for NBA Draft
Ryerson Rams’ 7-foot-2 center
Ngom, a native of Dakar, Senegal, enjoyed a breakthrough sophomore season with the emerging Ryerson Rams’ of Canada’s U Sports basketball program — in 21 Ontario University Association (OUA) conference games, he averaged 11.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.3 blocks in 19 minutes — connecting on 63.8% of his 88-138 field goal attempts.
Rams’ head coach Roy Rana discovered the late-blooming Ngom back in 2017 when he and a few of his players travelled to Senegal to take place in a basketball exchange forum.
During his freshman
Appearing in 23 games the towering bigmen contributed 5.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 12 minutes as the Ryerson Rams advanced to their first national title game.
Ngom’s improvement has been clearly evident in his two campaigns under Rana and features impressive mobility and athleticism for his size. A natural defensive disruptor — Ngom has worked hard to build his thin frame and expand his improving shooting touch from the charity stripe to the three-point line.
Ngom posted a career-highs in points (24) once and grabbed 11 rebounds on multiple (3x) occasions as well as swatting away 8 shots once. Additionally, he reached double-figures scoring in 10 of his last 15 games.
The seven-footer posted 12 points, six assists and three blocks in 24 minutes of action against the Duke Blue Devils during their much anticipated Canadian Tour. Ngom also bec
Unlike the recent NCAA rules changes that allow a player to test the NBA Draft process and still return to the collegiate ranks — The U Sports eligibility model and NBA Draft process aren’t quite clear at this point.
Regardless, Ngom’s path to the NBA faces a steep uphill battle — becoming the first player since Ottawa Gee-Gee’s All-Canadian guard Warren Ward broke barriers by tossing his name in the 2013 NBA Draft process — gathering buzz with a respectable workout at Impact Basketball in Las Vegas.
Canadian William Njoku (Halifax, Nova Scotia), a 6’10”, 193-pounds forward from the Saint Mary’s Huskies holds the exclusive distinction of being the last player from a Canadian university to be drafted in the modern NBA era.
Brooklyn born, Brian Heaney, a Canadian Basketball Hall of Famer and a member of the 1965 Acadia University Axemen championship team
Carleton Ravens’ all-time great point guard Phillip Scrubb — arguably Canada’s best university basketball player of all-time — never declared for the 2015 NBA Draft — but managed to play in the 2015 NBA Summer League with the Memphis Grizzlies and the Toronto Raptors.
Although not a common stake yet, it is inevitable that Canadian players declaring from Canadian universities to the NBA draft will one day, in the not very distant future become commonplace.
