Who Says No?

The Los Angeles Lakers have a golden opportunity to acquire 4 top tier talents this summer. The four big “K’s” Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving, and Klay Thompson would come to LA in the biggest blockbuster trade in the history of sports. Danny Ainge and the Celtics get another young talent, Kyle Kuzma, to replace their already departing point guard, Kyrie. The Warriors get powerhouse big-man and World Champion JaVale McGee. And the Raptors get convict, Kentavius Caldwell-Pope and Reggie Bullock for rent-a-player, Kawhi Leonard. These four are all leaving, just the fact that each team gets SOMETHING out of them leaving, should make them happy.

Just imagine having the starting five of Kyrie, Kawhi, LeBron, KD, and AD with Klay Thompson as the sixth man. There’s 5+ years of championship caliber basketball back in the Staples center. Each of the starters can take turns in winning the MVP each year. Klay would win the Sixth Man of the Year award EVERY year. It’s a no-brainer for each clubhouse.

Obviously this doesn’t happen. But a man can dream, right?

Which Office Basketball Player Are You?

by: Jake Ring

What Office Basketball Player are you?

Michael Scott


The one player who thinks they are better than they actually are.  This is the player no one wants to admit they are, but everyone else knows who they are.  This player hangs onto the ball too much and dribbles into double coverage when he gets the chance.  Usually sports a cut off that is cut at the seems, so it looks weird, and wears New Balance basketball shoes, with the occasional headband or wristbands.

Jim Halpert


The uncaring MVP.  This player is the perfect fit for a basketball player, tall, lanky, and athletic.  Can do anything from driving to score, or posting up on the three-point line and draining a 25-footer.  The only downside is his effort. They turn it on when it really matters, but are not full go for the entire game.  Usually wearing a short sleeve tee & Nike’s, nothing flashy.

Dwight Schrute


The Hustler.  “I’m just going to play defense and get rebounds.” An absolute unit on the court, but has no hand-eye coordination at all.  Only shot they can make is a layup. This player probably prefers wrestling over basketball, but plays basketball because no one wants to roll around in the dirt with them.  This player is also the player that says “We’re skins”

Darryl Philbin


The Constant, Floor General.  This player would be the best player on the court if it wasn’t for their weight.  They can get up and down the court easily but lack on defense. Normally a scorer and a facilitator of the ball.  Normally bigger guys with a big heart for the game. Also called, The Unexpected Athlete.

Roy Anderson


The guy that plays on the basketball team and his Twitter bio says “Ball is Life”, or “Ball don’t lie”  All effort is put into the game, usually the sweatiest guy on the court. And can play ball at an efficient and disciplined level.  This guy is extremely competitive and will kick the ball if things don’t go their way. A common quote, “Foul!, back up top”. Girlfriend is in attendance of every game.

Which one are you?  If you DGAF then you are Ryan Howard, the ultimate not giving a fuck, person of all time.
