Cliff “Good News” Levingston carried the Chicago Bulls to 2 NBA Championships in the early 90s.
Here’s a weird fact about Cliff:
“In 1986, while playing for the Hawks, Levingston had the rare distinction of “fouling into” an NBA game in a game. In a game where Dominique Wilkins and Antoine Carr were injured, Kevin Willis, Scott Hastings, Spud Webb and Levingston fouled out of the game. After Doc Rivers was ejected, the Hawks were down to only four players. Under an obscure rule, Levingston, the last player to foul out, was allowed to come back into the game at the cost of a technical foul.”
The Hawks decided to pass when they realized Cliff would be coming back in and just played with 4.
The injured Andrew Bynum avoided every mirror last night before sitting with the 76ers bench. Bynum, who was traded over the off-season from the Lakers, has completely lost it and doesn’t care how creepy he looks is trying to bring some west coast style back east.
It’s not smart to drink and drive. Jason Kidd did just that this weekend, resulting in a smashed up car and an arrest. Luckily for him he didn’t kill himself or injury anyone. He’s been making millions of dollars for the last 18 years. He has no excuse for not hiring a car service, or a helicopter, or a very large man to carry him around like Uncle Jack did in Arrested Development:
This article says that he was so drunk he needed to be carried to his car, so congratulations to the idiots who carried him out to his car and let him drive home.
Clyde “The Glide” Drexler played in the NBA from 1983 to 1998, mostly for the Portland Trailblazers, as well as a few years with the Houston Rockets to round out his career. He won a championship with the Rockets in 1995, but it really doesn’t count since Jordan took that year off to play baseball and gamble.
Clyde was a ten-time All-Star and member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, the NBA named him one of basketball’s fifty greatest players as of 1996. He was part of the 1992 USA Basketball “Dream Team.” I watched the documentary on said team last night and believe you me, there are more steeshes to come from that film.
Larry Bird, the man that is pictured above with a blonde mustache, called the Indiana Pacers “soft” after they lost to the Miami Heat last night by 32. A funny thing to say for someone whose mustache has the subtitle “Ghost Protocol”, I’d have to assume.
Personally I’d like both of these teams to beat the shit out of each other. I can’t stand either of them. I’d describe how horrible they are, but my articulate cousin already had this to say, “You know the Heat are a bunch of turd cutters when everyone is cheering for the Pacers who are a solid collection of dildos themselves.”
