"Living in Compton California CA

His Uzi up yo ass if he don't get paid..."

Sadly, fifteen years ago today Eric Lynn Wright, better known as rapper Eazy-E, passed away. I figured we had enough of the Tauntaun sleeping bag and instead could use some Eazy-E (and friends) prior to tonight's hoops action. Enjoy...but as you might recall, Mr. Wright and Co. use some "colorful" language, so try not to get fired listening to this.

i really enjoyed the tauntaun sleeping bag.

rob said...

and when is whitney/godot going to get here?

TJ said...

Oh, I sense Igor will be by any time now...

rob said...

way to ruin the suspense, jerkbucket.

The Teej said...

Yes, it's very suspenseful to glimpse over to the list of G:TB staffers and see that, hey, look at that, Whit's name is gone and then there is this other name Igor. Oh god, hope I didn't ruin it for everyone.

The Teej said...

http://pleasefireme.com/

rob said...

you did. you ruined it for everyone, encyclopedia brown.

The Teej said...

Who ruined it for everyone? That fat fucking drunk "TJ"? Yeah, fuck that guy.

The Teej said...

Sorry Mark. The Teej in no way wants to steal your schtick.

Greg said...

Bailey Wick? Cane Lover? Forum For'em?

Mark said...

I'm confused. How are you stealing my shtick? In fact, what is my schtick?

Mark said...

And TJ has officially jumped the shark ego wise with the changing of his moniker to "The Teej". We're about two months away from him going solo with his own blog and dropping not so subtle disses to his old partner Z-Man as well as the rest of the G:TB staff.

rob said...

we'll give his job to greg.

The Teej said...

I'm only the Teej until the arrival of the artist formally known as Whitney. Or 5pm. Whatever comes first.

Mark said...

This is exactly where The Teej's "Behind the Blog" starts...

The Teej said...

Who says I'm not Greg?

Mark said...

Drew.

TJ said...

What'd I miss?

Mark said...

Nothing. Just some douchebags who think they're too important to use their real names around here.

TJ said...

Seriously, all of those guys are the worst. Especially the douchewhistle with that "rob" acronym..."runt on board" was so '88.

Igor said...

Hola.

And Whitney's name is still up there, dummy.

TJ said...

We need more Rave Truck.

rob said...

igor! love your bar.

zoltan said...

It's pronounced "EYE-gor."

TJ said...

What hump?

Mark said...

Ohio State-Tennessee is FUUUN. Lots of scoring, tons of athletes on the floor and a nice matchup between Bruce Peal's defensive looks and Evan Turner.

Baylor, on the other hand, just looks way too tough defensively and too athletic for St. Mary's.

Mark said...

LaceDarius...not even remotely phased by St. Mary's defenders.

zoltan said...

Did you see the article about the autistic kid who picked every game right so far? He has Tennessee in the final four.

TJ said...

I just commented 4 or 5 times in the wrong post below. I am a moron.

zoltan said...

I hate these algae ads. Dude's been growing algae for 35 years and he still can't make fuel?

Mark said...

The autistic kid also has somebody absurd (and already eliminated) winnng the tourney. It's a nice story and he's won some good cash for his efforts but he ain't winning any pools.

TJ said...

I'd say Baylor is murdering St Marys, but something feels off about that.

zoltan said...

I think he had Purdue winning it all.

rob said...

wow, exit samhan

TJ said...

He's off to never never land.

TJ said...

Some guy named Alonzo Gee led the Wiz in scoring in the first half. The Wiz, they are bad.

rob said...

bruce pearl is right: turner carries the shit out of the ball

TJ said...

I call that NBA-ready rob.

TJ said...

Non-headband Chism wants to carry these guys to a win.

rob said...

i admit it: that t-pain cameo makes me giggle

Mark said...

What did JP Prince do to these refs? Those are two terrible calls on him in a row. Both should've been offensive fouls.

TJ said...

Can I call Brian Williams "Venison Dele"?

Mark said...

I agree, Turner gains a huge advantage by the way he handles the ball.

And Alonzo Gee played at Bama. Good athlete, decent shooter, no basketball IQ.

TJ said...

Gee sounds perfect for this Wiz team.

Mark said...

I'll say it. Turner's jumper needs LOTS of work.

Mark said...

You're right Teej. He just needs a criminal charge or two.

TJ said...

Um, North Korea sank a South Korean sub? What is this, 1955?

rob said...

shlara left the country for italy today. i question her commitment to the hoops cause.

TJ said...

Ohio St might want to stop fouling guys throwing down hammer dunks.

TJ said...

You circling her house with your lights off?

Mark said...

JP Prince is kind of a douche, maybe that's what the refs have against him.

Mark said...

Omar Samhan...the Greek league is on line 1.

rob said...

ohio state is circling the drain

Mark said...

TJ...Wayne Chism would like you to blow him where the pampers is.

Mark said...

Yeah, Jon Diebler picked a bad night to lose his shooting touch.

TJ said...

Mark, did you know the Wiz signed Shaun Livingston to a 10 day contract, and within one week he was signed for the year and has stoled Randy Foye's starting PG gig?

TJ said...

Wayne's bringing it big time.

TJ said...

Is Wayne Chism gonna have to choke a bitch?

Mark said...

I did not know that. Good For Livingston. By all accounts he's a great guy who's worked his ass off to come back from a devastating injury. It's a shame he was hurt so badly because he had everything you could ever want in a PG and then some. As for Foye, he's not a PG. Just PG size. I like him as a player but he's a 3rd guard/6th man on a really good team. It's a good thing he wasn't traded for a star like Brandon Roy on draft day.

TJ said...

Venison Dele is just throwing OSU guys around the paint.

Mark said...

Indeed, he's setting some very questionable screens.

TJ said...

We've got another beaut of a game...god bless

Mark said...

Has JP Prince been the best player in this game? Seriously. He's made an impact in every phase.

TJ said...

Wow.

Mark said...

What a game.

TJ said...

Double wow

rob said...

unreal - haymakers all around

Mark said...

Turner's a little right hand heavy for my taste. He needs to get better at taking it and finishing strongly with his left. He never even feigned taking it left over the last 5 minutes.

TJ said...

'Lil Iverson needs to sink these...

Mark said...

And yes, I'm nitpicking. But these are the things he'll have to be able to do to be a big time pro.

Dan said...

hard to beat verne & raftery too...i wub it.
is the rainboy bracket picker still perfect? really? he did pick purdue cuz his older brother graduated from there, also autistic

TJ said...

Mark, it sounds like I already have the answer, but if you were the Nets your taking Wall #1 hands down? No Turner talk?

TJ said...

Um, foul?

rob said...

turrrible possession

TJ said...

Nope, not a foul. Horrendous possession indeed.

TR said...

As Tennessee dies, so does my bracket. Au revoir, $1200 first prize.

rob said...

we're all boilermakers tonight, friends

Mark said...

I don't understand that strategy. Get a quick 2, foul and extend the game. You don't have to have a 3 when you're down 2 with 12 seconds left. Dumb. Just dumb.

As for the #1 pick. The impact of a dominant PG is just too great in today's NBA. I know the Nets have Devin Harris but he's nowhere near what Wall can be. Wall and Brook Lopez are two fantastic building blocks for a franchise. Even a team like Utah should take Wall #1 and then try and trade him for assets if they don't think they can pair he and Deron Williams. Wall will be highly sought after and whoever drafts him will be able to improve themselves significantly with what they receive in return.

TJ said...

And Farokhmaneshes.

zoltan said...

No, he had Cuse over Butler. That's his only wrong pick though.

Mark said...

If some guy was rapping about breaksfast in your car pool van, wouldn't you fucking slap him?

TJ said...

And steal his fucking food/coffee.

TR said...

The McDonalds commercial with the guy rapping in the car over a beat from 1991 is brutal. The "rapper" should take off his clothes and return them to the Dwayne Wayne section of the "A Different World" wardrobe museum.

zoltan said...

Yes. And I think I've heard that song before. I can't put my finger on it, but it's a ripoff of something.

rob said...

st mary's winning the second half

TJ said...

That blonde with Bryce Drew has some hair, eh?

TR said...

Bryce Drew needs to give Pete Sampras his face back.

rob said...

we're gonna get the duke game, aren't we?

rob said...

yes. yes we are.

rob said...

novel approach for purdue - nothing but air

Mark said...

I feel bad for anybody who's cable provider didn't give them a second HD channel that carries the out of market tournament game. Actually, no. No I don't.

Mark said...

Or whose. Bad day of grammar and syntax for me. I know what the problem is though...no papal ballots. I'll take care of that.

rob said...

'lower body root canal', huh clark?

rob said...

purdue and duke should be using peach baskets

rob said...

does general zaius know his son is playing center for duke?

zoltan said...

Duke's cheerleaders are very Tribesque.

zoltan said...

I think his name was Dr. Zaius, actually.

zoltan said...

I wish I could dunk.

rob said...

you're right, he was a doctor. it was general zod. who also looks like zoubek.

zoltan said...

I'm thinking of growing a small neckbeard, like a neckgoatee. The Z-woman isn't as enthusiastic as I am. But Zoubek and Pullen have inspired me.

zoltan said...

Purdue's shorts are preposterous.

Mark said...

TJ -- I just accidentally left a comment on the last thread. Thought you might want some company.

Mark said...

My beard is halfway down my neck. It's really quite a fucking sight a this point. A conversation piece even.

zoltan said...

I just want to grow a patch of hair directly under my chin and down my neck. A neckgoatee.

Mark said...

You just saw why Kyle Singler won't be much of an NBA player. An NBA 3 has to hammer that.

rob said...

duke is singler. singler is duke.

Mark said...

By all means Z. Go for it.

And what's your shot fetish? I seem to remember you having issues with Nova's shorts last season.

Mark said...

The new Duke, Rob. And that's one of the reasons they aren't as good as they once were.

zoltan said...

I think it looks really stupid when your shorts cover more of your shins than they leave exposed. Your shorts should cover no more than 49% of your shins, and ideally shouldn't fall more than an inch below your kneecap. Everyone's game just looks stupid in capri pants.

zoltan said...

Did any of you watch Northern Iowa at all this year? Did anyone know they were good?

rob said...

side of fries and a biscuit? so you can bind yourself up for a few days?

rob said...

i saw uni drum odu in the bracketbusters. the mid-major geeks loved them from early on.

rob said...

roe. whoa.

zoltan said...

Is... is that... the Teej?

rob said...

terrific 3 minutes for delvon roe

Mark said...

It's a shame his knee is wrecked. He's got a great mind for the game and used to have a ton of athletic ability. Microfracture surgey is high school is tough to recover from, I imagine.

SI did an article on UNI in February.

Mark said...

Wildcats is among the worst nicknames ever. So generic.

Mark said...

For what it's worth, Lucas O'Rear was the the 6th man on the All G:TB team.

rob said...

so tom izzo's pretty effing brilliant, isn't he?

zoltan said...

Just a hunch, but I bet TR has a giant man-crush on UNI's chubby guy with muttonchops.

zoltan said...

And I also have a hunch that there are no barbers or mirrors in Durham, hence Singler's hair.

Mark said...

As to Rob's point, Michigan State's offensive sets are beautiful to watch. He's a great X's and O's coach.

zoltan said...

That's the second ad intimating that your children will love you if you drive a truck.

rob said...

chris kramer is tougher than you are

Marls said...

It is tough to hate duke as much as I do, but I think some G:TB'ers might.

zoltan said...

Victoria Jackson aged poorly.

rob said...

i hate carolina more, but i'm definitely rooting against the devils.

zoltan said...

I never forgave Duke after they denied my application.

Marls said...

I think Singler has the AIDS.

rob said...

tied at the under 8 in st louis. 1-point game in houston. best first three rounds ever? best first three rounds ever.

Marls said...

What do you think Mr. Littlejeans?

zoltan said...

Most definitely rob. If Northern Iowa wins we'll have a 6-9 matchup for the right to go to the final four. When was the last time that happened?

Mark said...

Credit to Jay Bilas. He said a month ago ( and repeated often) that he thought this year's tourney would turn out like the 06 tourney when Florida, UCLA, LSU and Mason made the Final Four. So far, he ain't far off.

Mark said...

Jon Scheyer is skinnier than you are.

rob said...

jacobson's not a bad coach himself. trapping the post paying dividends.

rob said...

lucious! wow.

Mark said...

Korey Lucious. Luscious.

rob said...

84% shooter koch misses a pair, lucious hits a fadeaway to put msu up 4. might be it.

rob said...

ballgame. fuck.

Mark said...

I am truly excited for Baylor-Duke.

Dan said...

got caught up on all my shows yesterday evening - Lost was a pleasant surprise. What say you.

mayhugh said...

Dan, starting Lost now, will report back.

zoltan said...

Frank Wright is stunningly ineloquent.

rob said...

he can design the shit out of a building, though

zoltan said...

Indeed. I think I meant Frank Martin. I too am bumblingly ineloquent.

TR said...

Brad Friedel gave up 7 against Chelsea. Not a strong show from a solid Aston Villa squad.

In other US action, Jozy Altidore went most of the way in a rare Hull City win against Clint Dempsey's Fulham squad. Dempsey went the whole way.

TR said...

Does Jay Bilas go to his barber and say "give me the Montross?"

rob said...

7 as in goals? guh.

fulham beat juventus last week. bit of a letdown today.

zoltan said...

Matt Howard's rocking the Adam Morrison Memorial Crustache.

rob said...

c'mon, butler. this isn't wisconsin-green bay.

Mark said...

Not much of a crowd at LSU's spring game. At least by SEC standards.

K-State looks tired from Thursday's double OT thriller. Frank Martin thinks "tired legs" are for pussies.

Mark said...

Jacob Pullen appears to talk constantly. He just yelled at the basket support and he and Jordan Crawford were yakking, and it appeared to be very friendly, throughout the entirety of the 15 minutes of their closely contested contest.

rob said...

baby-faced assassin

Mark said...

Jesse Palmer just referenced Tron during a pass attempt to a Terrance Tolliver (who has an unusual cast on his hand). I feel like this happened because Les Miles made the ESPN crew watch Tron with him last night.

Mark said...

Should we even care what Jacob Pullen does until the last 5-6 minutes of a game. Dude is money down the stretch.

rob said...

throats getting tight in the dark uniforms

zoltan said...

After this tremendously fun tournament, the NCAA might not want to tinker with the format.

Mark said...

Lol. The moment after Gus Johnson raves about Girdon Hayward's fundamental base, he fumbles the ball away with no pressure on him.

Clemente for the lead!

Mark said...

I'm thinking of leaving my fiancé for this tournament. You think I have a chance?

Mark said...

Two differences in this game, IMO. K-State's fatigue and Butler's head/heart. Bulldogs didn't panic when it got tight and made all the big plays over the last 2 minutes.

Mark said...

It's official. Butler's THE mid-major program in College Basketball. And you know what? I'm happy for them, their fans and the program as a whole.

zoltan said...

A 33-year-old former pharmaceutical sales rep just coached his team into the final four. Good for him.

rob said...

that's a really damn good team. this is no fluke.

Mark said...

The video clip of Brad Stevens doing the flying shoulder bump with his assistant was great. Tough not to like that whole team, top to bottom.

Dan said...

gus on hayward after getting an o.reb and a layin - "don't let the smooth taste fool ya" ???

on someone else - clemente perhaps - "he's the straw that stirs the drink" which is a total ripoff from one of my shows this week - Modern Family mabye? 30 Rock - can't remember...

hellofa bawgame there.

zoltan said...

I believe Reggie Jackson said it first. NYC was the drink, he was the straw that stirred it.

Mark said...

Yeah Dan, that saying's been around for some time.

Dan said...

dan - yeah ahhhh, that saying's been around since moby dick was a tadpole....ahhh, i think we're gonna need you to come in on sunnnnday, yeahh....thanks.

Mark said...

This game is quite strange.

Mark said...

And West Virginia's zone(s) are bothering Kentucky. Like really, really bothering Kentucky.

rob said...

how many times has a team led at the half of an ncaa tournament game without making a 2-point field goal?

rob said...

i love love love damarcus cousins' game.

Mark said...

His attitude is another question.

Mark said...

Ah, the ole junk slap.

Mark said...

Why, exactly is this Disneyland?

TJ said...

Huggy's final four appearance - nicky va poo poo was involved right? Who else was on that club?

TJ said...

Bob Huggins is a much better coach than I ever gave him credit for. I read several articles in the last week about him blending some of the old Beilin with his schemes, and the results speak for themselves.

Plus, he loves a good Irish taxi ride, and honestly, who doesn't?

rob said...

ken pomeroy says this is enberg's last game. pretty good run.

rob said...

i can't believe i'm rooting for huggins

Mark said...

Why does Kentucky just keep giving up layups to Joe Mazzulla? His shoulder's fucked but it doesn't mean he can't hit layups.

Mark said...

My high school coach played for Huggins in college (not at Natti, much earlier) and we ran all his sets.

TJ said...

Not to get all Jaworski, or Bilas, but the Huggy offense gives me wood.

Mark said...

Bilas took the words right out of my mouth...stop the ball. Not stopping the ball on the break is an automatic suicide in any self respecting coach's practice.

Dan said...

i thought the 20-second tribute to enberg's career was a bit lame.
bilas is going snorkelin later tonight.

Mark said...

John Wall gives Dick Enberg wood.

rob said...

i can't remember a harder guy to stop with the ball than wall

Dan said...

cousins walked on that play

TJ said...

In all seriousness, Kentucky has five first round draft picks on this team right?

Wall
Cousins
Bledsoe
Patterson
Orton

rob said...

anyone turning off their electricity for earth hour? sorry, almost got through that with a straight face.

Mark said...

Young Jason Kidd was pretty amazing on the break but he didn't have near the hops or finishing ability that Wall has.

Mark said...

Definitely 4 and somebody might take a shot with Orton. No doubt.

TJ said...

West Va has shot lights out for an hour and a half. Does that count?
/gore'd

Mark said...

Bilas is making a great point without actually making it. Huggins has outcoached Calipari by an embarassing margin in the 2nd half.

rob said...

this is shaping up as a strange and wonderful final four. and i bet the ratings will suck.

TJ said...

Obviously, we also want to add Baylor and Tennessee tomorrow, ratings be damned.

Mark said...

I can't root for Tennessee to make the Final Four. Sorry.

TJ said...

Completely understood. You and Mateen Cleeves should have an impromptu election and vote early....and often.

rob said...

gtb's own baylor bears need to get to indy.

TJ said...

Once, twice, thre times a lacedarius...

Dan said...

bilas thinks uk's gonna win this game.
