You know when you’re playing NBA 2K against someone online and they have been using every trick in the a-hole book to beat you like using long pauses, exploiting loopholes in the games programming, playing terrible music the whole time and narrating they’re every move.
Yet, somehow you still manage to beat them before they plug out their system? Well, if you’re like me. Finishing those “people” off with an alley-oop once you have the game in hand is always a nice way to say “stick it bub”.
“I thought about dunking a bowling ball, but I haven’t practiced it or anything. I really don’t know if I’m going to do it or not. I don’t want to end up injured from a dunk contest.”- Kenneth Faried
Some things are bigger than basketball and Denver Nuggets second year forward Kenneth Faried took some time out to discuss his two mothers and his support for Civil Unions. His birth mother Waudda and her partner Carol have been together for 11 years and they were the fifth same sex couple to get married in the state of New Jersey. Clearly they did a great job raising Kenneth Faried.
See the interview after the jump.
When Kenneth Faried takes his athleticism for a test drive, it’s always fun to watch. In a single motion Faried grabs a rebound, takes a power dribble and spikes the ball home with a vicious jam. To fully appreciate this dunk, look how high the ball bounces after it goes through the hoop.
Kenneth Faried had himself a great nigh against the Spurs. He posted a double-double of 19 points and 11 rebounds all while he was sick. How sick you ask? Well, lets just say he was sick enough to toss cookies on national television. Gross.
