The Lockout Sucks

I'm surprised how many basketball fans don't really seem to care about the lockout. I think it's a shame and a waste. I recently came across this image by artist is Larry Johnson. I'm guessing it's not the "Grandmama" Johnson.

The "And One" Guy

Occasionally when I play a pickup game of basketball I will come across a guy who is an "And One" enthusiast. This means they love to call out that they were fouled when they make a basket.

I'll be the first to admit that it's cool to make a potential three point play and it's okay to say it, but if you find yourself saying "and one" more than a couple times during a game or every time you make a basket and there are players around you, then you are a jerk.-F.Y.I.

Seriously, even if you are fouled every single time you make a basket you don't need to announce it to everyone. Leave it to the refs, announcers, and your teammates.

This is my public service announcement to remind you not to be that guy. Nobody likes the cocky "and one" guy.

What I Will Miss The Most

I really don't want to see the upcoming NBA season cancelled, but it doesn't look good. The thing that I am going to miss the most is not seeing Blake Griffin's amazing highlights every night.
