Varejao Feels Self Conscious Flopping Around Ginobli

Unread postby The Cutthroat » Thu Jun 07, 2007 12:54 pm

CLEVELAND--Cavaliers forward Anderson Varejao admitted today that he was going to feel extremely self conscious flopping around Spurs guard Manu Ginboli in the upcoming NBA finals. Varejao considers himself an amateur flopper, while Ginobli is a legend who practically invented the practice of falling down on purpose.

“I am a little scared, I have to admit,” Varejao admitted with a laugh. “This is like the student going up against the master. What if I screw up? What if I fall down and do not get the call? He will probably think I’m some kind of idiot. I guess I just have to stay calm and remember that I deserve to be here and that I can fall down just as good as he can…oh, who am I kidding? When he falls down, he is majestic like a ballerina. When I fall down I am like a drunk slipping on a banana peel. I only hope that we win the series in order to minimize the humiliation somewhat.”

This is going to sound nuts but, IMO Ginobli is the luckiest garbage player to ever step foot on the court in the NBA.

He throws up more crap.

Off balance wrong footed lay ups off the board after being tripped etc...

I know he is at least good, I just feel he is pretty over rated when it comes to fundamental straight up basketball.

He just reminds me of the guy at the 4th of July party that is bombed and hits every shot in a screw around game of 33.

Dunno how old you are, but that described Pete Maravich, too.
