Shawn Kemp has graciously agreed to stop by today to be a guest interviewer and ask Chuck some questions:
1) Who do you think has done a more brutal job as a general manager during the past six weeks: David Kahn or Joe Dumars?
Didn’t Dumars fire Michael Curry a couple weeks ago because of his inexperience as a head coach? Am I missing something? The most comical part is that the new coach, John Kuester, was the “offensive coordinator” of the Cavs last year. What exactly did he coordinate? I can’t wait to watch Kuester spread the court so Ben Gordon can go 1 on 5 and hoist up 25 shots a game.
On the other hand, the Minnesota Timberwolves have gone from horrible to absolutely abysmal in a few short weeks. Right now Al Jefferson and Kevin Love are the only two legitimate NBA starters on the entire roster…and they play the same position! If Jefferson re-injures that knee, the Timberwolves will be lucky to win fifteen games. Jonny Flynn should be pretty good in a couple years and Ryan Gomes is a decent role player, but the rest of the team is positively putrid.
In an interview with ESPN’s Henry Abbott on Tuesday, Kahn hinted that his hands were tied as far as the Ricky Rubio situation was concerned. Yeah, they’re tied around his own neck. Taking two point guards back-to-back was bad enough, but Kahn traded away the team’s 2nd and 3rd best players for a guy who will likely never even wear a Timberwolves jersey. It’s a close call, but I’m going to have to give the edge to Kahn.
2) Who are the best dunkers in the league right now and will anyone ever be better than MJ, Dominique or me?
LeBron, J-Smoove, J.R. Smith, Travis Diener and Jason Richardson are the guys that immediately come to mind. What, you wouldn’t put Diener on the list? Damn, I can’t believe that midget is in the league. I don’t think he can even touch the rim and Larry Bird is paying him $1.75 million a year. The NBA really is where amazing happens.
3) What advice would you give to all the rookies coming into the league this year?
I’d tell them to remember the following three things: condoms, call girls and blow jobs. It’s that simple. Last time I checked, you couldn’t get a woman pregnant by getting a blow job. That was your mistake Shawn, you did the exact opposite and now you’re paying the price. Look at what happened to Air McNair. He let things go way too far. It’s a tragic and tuurrible story, but it really was preventable. I just hope all the young players in the league learned a valuable lesson.
4) What do you like to do when you’re not gambling, drinking or watching hoops?
I love watching big budget blockbuster movies. Although last night I saw “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” and it really sucked ass. I’ll tell you what though, that Megan Fox sure is a hot little minx. Can you believe she was banging that dorky David Silver all these years? What a waste. She needs a real man. After one night with me she’ll never even think about hooking up with a scrawny white guy ever again.
