So we try and have fun here on Celtics Life, but the NBA news of the past few months has been anything, but fun. Today could also be a nuclear day, where the best shot for a season blows up. With that said, might as well make some attempt to brighten things up. I figured we could caption some of the player reps in the above picture taken yesterday.
The interesting thing about the players on the negotiating team and all the 30 team reps as a whole is they're basically a bunch of no names (with the exception of Chris Paul). You don't get Melo or Amar'e from the Knicks, you get Roger Mason Jr (who most likely won't be on the Knicks this season and might not even be in the league). No Duncan, Manu, or Parker from the Spurs. There's Matt Bonner instead. Etan Thomas, Maurice Evans, Theo Ratliff? Yeah they are all player reps, but do you even know what teams they played for last season. Did you even know they all were still playing?
Ok on to the captions. Feel free to add your own in the comments section.
Maurice Evans: Deebo meets Bokeem Woodbine.
Roger Mason Jr: If Ice-T can play a detective on tv for 11 years and running, I should have been able to land a cop role on at least one BET movie by now.
Anthony Tolliver: I miss getting my paychecks to sleep on the Wolves bench. Please let Adelman know I'm fine with Darko playing 48 minutes.
