Niiice. Overalls with an ironed crease.

Dick Motta looks like if he'd have sat in a certain couch we had, he would have disappeared.

When teams have a throwback jersey game, the coaches should gp throwback too.

Lenny Wilkins was one smooth operator. It's too bad he didn't break out the butterfly collar when he was with the Cavs in the late '80s.

That looks like JB if he was 100% hippy "Peace out Youngstown!"

My dad who isn't terribly old (61) used to go up to the old Arena to watch games. He said it was very intimate. My mom tells me he would yell insights at Heinsohn all game, and it seemed so close it was like he was talking to him. Until this spread I guess I'd never seen any pics of what that must have looked like.

Larry Brown starred on Hee Haw? Who'da thunk it? :nanner:
"It's all about winning for me, and I think the Cavs are committed to doing that," he said. "But at the same time I've given myself options to this point, and like I said before, me and my team, we have a game plan that we're going to execute, and we'll see what we get."

"We had a great time together."

Okay. You are Hubie Brown. Now you KNOW if you are wearing that suit and you walk through a tropical storm, your chances of emerging without a wrinkle are a very high percentage.

Okay. Now you ALSO know that you are in Boston Garden, and you are coaching the shitty Hawks. You MUST understand that you have very little chance of getting the benefit of calls in that building. You ALSO MUST appreciate the possibility that your suit will cause flash-burns to the eyes of the officials, causing them to lose sight of what venue they are in. You realize that if they think they are in the Omni, your chances of not getting hosed are a much higher percentage than they would be if you were in Boston Garden.

Okay. So what have we learned?

Man, I had that jacket Bill Fitch was wearing. That and one of those wide-collar shirts and you would be all set.

We understand that Hubie is one of the most stylish men we have in the league right now and that you MUST keep his jackets out of the painted area.

His best line was during that Suns-Rockets matchup a few years back when Alston didnt get a foul call. "First, Alston gets it in two places, by Barnes and then from Nash in the rear, so naturally, he's hot."

I saw it live and knew immediately it would find its way to Basketbawful. Easily the funniest on air comment I have ever heard during a sporting event, or anything live for that matter.

The guy in the turtleneck at the scorers table looks like he's auditioning for an English Leather ad. The only thing missing is a pine tree, a puppy and a girl in a flannel shirt
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB
