Anyways, I was checking out the All-Star Festivities tonight, and who do I see for the whole show...yes Hedo Turkoglu! Kidd is there, Webber is there, Dr. J, countless other people! But instead of seeing them...I'm stuck watching constant cut-aways of Hedo raising his hands in what appears to be an almost infinite "I'm da man" pose. I mean really, what did this guy do to get all that air time?
Winning the 3 on 3 tournament can't be that important? Can it?
It's coming people....Turko-mania!
Nothing is better than X-pac! It's all in the inflection...
"We have clearly reached the point where only rampant and unchecked stabbing can save us!!"
Yes! Turkoglu is da man! And to be da man you gotta beat da man!
And of course anytime he gets in trouble his Sacramento Horsemen "The Enforcer" Sarunas Marciulonos (yea i know i butchered his name), "The Crippler" Peja Stojakovic and Vlade "Mongo" Divac would come to his aid.
But then in an attempt by the NBA to boost ratings they bring in the mWo (Maverick World Order). With members "Hollywood" Dirk Nowitzki, and the tag team of Eduardo Najera and "Big Sexy" Steve Nash. And they would be led by Mark Cubischoff.
So then the mWo challenge the NBA to a four on four War Games match. "The Nature Boy" Hedo Turkoglu and "The Enforcer" Sarunas (i will not attempt his last name again) team up with "The Total Package" Doug Christie and Sting-Webb to take on the mWo's three member and a new fourth member.
It is then revealed that the fourth member of mWo is Sting-Webb!! The NBA fans are crushed! How could he do that!!
So War Games comes, Nowitzki, Nash, Najera, Christie, Sarunas, and Turkoglu are already in the ring and the mWo have the next member coming out and it's Sting-Webb!! Sting-Webb is in the mWo!! But wait a minute! Here comes the real Sting-Webb and he's beating on the impostor Sting-Webb, oh my goodness, that isn't Sting-Webb! It's Tim Hardaway on stilts!! Sting-Webb was loyal to the NBA afterall!! But Sting-Webb, hurt that the NBA did not believe him, leaves Christie to tap out.
"The Total Package" Doug Christie later beats "Hollywood" Dirk Nowitzki for a short couple of days reign.
After the mWo reigns for about a year, Sting-Webb finally saves the day by winning the title from Nowitzki at Starcade.
I'm guessing they showed Hedo a lot, because there were a lot of Kings players in the different events and they always like to cutaway to shots of the participant's teammates cheering them on. And he was probably poising because he was thankful that Moses Malone didn't take his head off.
I think we should start the campaign now to have CRZ as Sacramento's celebrity player in next year's 3 on 3 tourney. Surely he can do a better job than that Ed guy, and hopefully take out the guy from Nsync with a wiener shot.
I think I see what you mean, and it's probably good that the small conference champions get into the field of 64. Though I was initially thinking that those #16-caliber seeds would at least have a shot at a win in the first/play-in round (96 -> 64).
