Hornets Hype

In a basement. In our pajamas.

… but this blogger just said it 100% better: “Hey, LeBron, here’s 10 better ways to use your chalk.” For instance, #7:

Perhaps Lebron could get his whole team involved – he is supposed to be unselfish after all – and have everyone tossing up chalk at the scorers table. It would lead to a cool illusion where for 3.5 seconds Zydrunas Ilgauskas would completely disappear.

I nearly snorted gin and tonic out my nose. When someone is being way funnier than me, I recognize. Shout out to Truth About It for the link.

  1. That was hilarious. Looks like I have to add another blog to the ones I check daily now.

  2. That is one of the funniest posts I’ve ever read.

  3. I’m just satisfied to see we’re not the only ones snarking on this “phenomenon.” Plus it was really, really funny.

  4. “I know he wants to follow in Jordan’s footsteps but somewhere Nike and Lebron forgot the infamous Jumpman shows MJ actually playing basketball, not stroking his ego in some pre-game fairy dust shower.”


  5. And to be honest, I discovered via Both Teams Played Hard.


    Good to know the bandwagon of LeBron H8ers is getting heavy.

  6. haha. I remember mW (or some Hornets blog. I tend to meld it into one nice community) posting how LeBron is marketed as a spectacle, and we are third-party ‘witnesses’. I was reading some old Dime Magazines, and Jalen Rose had written an article that mentioned Bron Bron (February 2007):

    “Things would have been so different if we had come along 10 years later. You know when you’re LeBron James coming out in the 2000s, you know how corporate America works. You want to own your own website name, you want to copyright this and copyright that. We were just living. Imagine if we had trademarked black socks? Or the term ‘Fab 5’? Man, I turned on the TV once and saw five gay guys calling themselves the ‘Fab 5’ and it blew my mind. We were just basketball players, you know?”

    Which is really interesting to contemplate. I’m all for BronBron marketability (I admit I’ve bought his stuff on sale), but he’s so utterly fake, it disgusts me. Jordan played basketball and the brand grew with him; the stories were unveiled as he played (now they’re bastardizing his legacy, but that’s another post). With Bron Bron, it’s as if every action is a marketing strategy. I’m certain they commercialize Bron Bron scratching his head. His itchy scalp flakes off like chalk. Witness Head and Shoulders.

    With that said, Nike’s doing a damn good job of making Bron a market, but it’s getting to that point where I equate Paris Hilton and Bron Bron, akin to mW’s statement “LeBron is a whore.”

    Whew. I need some fresh air.
