Stuff my Girlfriend says-Episode 1

Welcome to the first edition of Stuff My Girlfriend says. I was going to name it S**t my girlfriend says but my mom would probably give me s**t for it(pun intended). Anyway, my girlfriend Jessie is awesome and much smarter than me in every aspect of life expect sports, namely basketball. So, of course I exploit that and put our conversations on the internet for the world to see. She's totally on board with this and is actually encouraging me to do it. Also, she's from Miami and I've turned her into a legit Celtics fan and Heat hater. Go me.

These are actual questions from her from these playoffs.  Please feel free to email me at or comment below on any questions of conversations you've had with your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband, Mom, Dad, 3rd cousin. I want to hear from you!

Jessie: What happens if you travel? Does the other team get the ball?
Me: There are no travels called in the NBA.

Jessie:  Did KG just say "I'm so excited"
Me: KG doesn't say things without the F word

Me: You know who John Stockton is right?
Jessie: No
Me: The leading assist guy of all time
Jessie: I wouldn't want to be the leading assist guy I'd want to be the leading points guy

Jessie:  Was Michael Jordan in Space Jam?
Me: What NBA player wasn't in Space Jam?

Me: We need a bucket here!
Jessie: What's a bucket?

Jessie:How come three pointers aren't four pointers? Because its a lot harder to hit a three pointer than a two pointer
Me: Tell that to Eddie House

Jessie: What's a steal? Isn't that what you're supposed to do in basketball?
Me: That's a damn good point

Me: Point Guard is the most important position on the floor.

Jessie: Whose the heat point guard? Lebron? Wade?
Me: Mario Chalmers
Jessie: Huh?

Jessie:How can you tell if the refs call a foul?
Me: When you hear the whistle blow or in the case of this series when the Celtics touch a Heat player

Jessie: Doc Rivers is a great name. It kind of sounds like a porn star.
A: Nods head

Jessie: Talking about Stiemsma. "They put him in when we need good defense. He's not going to get three pointers."
A: You are learning!
