The Raptors and Nets are headed to the Barclays Center with their series tied 1-1, and Kevin Garnett has sent out a not-so-welcoming message to his neighbors from the north.
“I don’t know if you can say ‘F Brooklyn’ and then come into Brooklyn,” Garnett said Tuesday. “So we’re about to see what it’s like.”
The comment — a reference to Raptors GM Masai Ujiri’s cursing of Brooklyn prior to Game 1
Not a good move by Ujiri. You don’t insult the city of the most intense NBA player of all time and expect to get away with it. You just don’t. KG had those words, “F-Brooklyn”, floating through his head on both road games just waiting till you stepped into his domain to unleash hell. Expect head smashing, loud swearing, intimidating looks, and then the murdering of all Raptors players right on the court. He has been in Brooklyn for less than a year and he already wants to kill for his city.
Summer is a time for fashion statements, and nothing will blow away your drunk friends at a BBQ like a nice obscure NBA jersey. Lets look at my top 3 for this summer.
1.) Hakeem Olajuwon – Toronto Raptors
As far as i’m concerned the best looking jerseys in the NBA are the Golden State Warriors, but nothing beats this Olajuwon Toronto Jersey from his 2 year stint there in the early 2000’s. Get this jersey and immediately break the ice with anyone (well, at least sports-loving dudes. Not promising any chicks) you’re with.
2.) Dominique Wilkins – Boston Celtics
3.) Karl Malone – Los Angeles Lakers
In the 03-04 season Malone joined up with Kobe, Shaq, and Gary Payton to make a NBA Finals run that would end by being decimated by the Pistons 4-1 in the series. While Malone isn’t one of my favorite players, the Mailman’s Laker threads cannot be denied.
If all else fails, do what I did. I made myself a Celtics #11 Drew Bledsoe jersey.
