Seeing just one of Phil Jackson‘s championship rings is okay, but seeing all 13 of them comprised of two as a player with the Knicks, six as the coach of the Bulls and five as the head coach of the Lakers. Well, that’s just down right cool. It’s always a good day when the Zen Master is on Twitter.
What’s the cost to shove LeBron James to the ground in a playoff game? Apparently nothing, as Nazr Mohammed received zero fine or suspension for doing exactly that in Game 3 on Friday. Mohammed was ejected for his actions, but it’s a bit of a surprise that’s all he received.
“I’m trying to move on from that,” Mohammed said. “I think I talked pretty long and I waited for you guys and kind of explained everything the other night. I don’t want to keep dragging it on, dragging it on. I mean, I think I covered everything.”
Expect Mohammed to see some action tonight in Game 4 as the Bulls try to stay alive down 3 games to 1 in their series against the Heat in Chicago tonight.
Just how good has Nate Robinson been playing during the 2013 playoffs? Well, if him getting featured in the final instalment of the NBA Playoffs 2013 “We Are All Watching” series of commercials dosen’t answer that question. Nothing will. In this version, we get to relive Nate Rob, hitting a BIG running one-hand runner to send the Bulls into overtime against the Brooklyn Nets during the 1st round of the playoffs. Dude has really come along way.
Is Derrick Rose coming back before the Bulls playoff runs ends? I don’t know. If I did, I’d probably have an awesome sports job in Chicago with 24/7 access to Hot Doug’s, Big Star tacos, and the delicious turkey burgers at Deuces and The Diamond Club. Anyway, those of you that have access to some of my favourite things in Chi-Town on a regular basis that love D.Rose. Should definitely cop this tee from the homies at Purehoop to show your Chicago pride. You should also send me a gift card to any three of those eateries if you have the extra scratch. I’m just sayin’.
So yeah, this billboard of Joakim Noah using an extinguisher to cool LeBron James is a real thing. And it’s probably the best thing that’s ever happened in fire protection marketing and Chicago Bulls indirect advertising history. Congratulations to CommandSign for designing this masterpiece. You guys did it!
