An NBADraft.net Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving had arrived and the NBADraft.net gang was ready to put aside their differences and gather at Aran's house for a Thanksgiving reunion. (Despite tli's offers to host the gathering in a certain sub-terranean room of his house.)

NoMoney was the first to arrive, as he had spent the night with his bff Aran watching ICarly, sandwiched by episodes of Breaking Bad, so they would feel less feminine. While Aran and NoMoney prepared the bird, McDunkin rolled up in his station wagon with his Based crew, WizKid, I May Be Based, and Based-Out-Like-23, jamming to some "Wonton Soup". Soon, MikeyV pulled up in his hybrid, LeroyJenkins arrived on his scooter, and Aamir's mom dropped him off. The house began to fill as

Dale Worthington, tli, cyclo, omphalos, UncleBuckshot, Basterd in a basket, DNYCE, It'sDwightHoward, ProudGrandpa, and a bunch of other quality users whose names I can't recall because they aren't on the first page of the "users by Points" list came throught the door.

After the usual small talk (No one would talk to MikeyV about Oregon athletics, though) Churchboy said grace and the gang dug in. Aamir and LeroyJenkins sat at the kiddie table, as ScottoAnt had recently graduated to the adults table, although Aamir begged to not be subject ot the company of Mr. Pizza Rolls. The turkey was especially popular (though Cyclo complained that he had seen turkey's with much larger wingspans than this one), as was JoeWolf's yeast rolls, M-Dymes' special brownies, and 8thDeadlySin's apple pie. DNYCE's casserole went relatively untouched.

After the meal, the gang gathered around the TV to watch football, but NoMoney, OJJ, and JoeWolf claimed the Big TV to play LittleBigPlanet. So everyone else went outside for a massive game of buggers...

I feel it would be inappropriate to describe the 3 hours that followed.

Everyone went back inside for a light dinner of llperez's tacos (is that racist? I'm sorry) and then they (we, because I was there) sat around the fire and talked about feelings, gossiping about John Bryant and Jonathan Givony. Finally, someone suggested that the group have a Derrick Favors joke-off. A red-faced McDunkin quietly excused himself, mumbling about "bathroom" and "check on my points". Finally, the group said their goodbyes and then Quincey shot up the place because he heard i don't have a decent ending.

I love you all, have a fantastic holiday season. And whenever you get tired of the Hypnotoad and Lil B, Jesus loves yall too.

Great story, but I will

Great story, but I will remind you again, I am a 15 year old 6'1 with a beard. People mistake me for being 21, not 7. And I ate one whole turkey yesterday, unlike Leroy who I heard threw a fit, cause he got beat up by a girl again.

I

I don't know how many times I have to tell you guys that I'm a vegetarian. Stop writing about me eating boars, pigs and turkeys. I ate popcorn and a banana for Thanksgiving dinner. Delicious and satisfying. Yep.

Great stuff though, ProudGrandpa. You'll have to write up something for every holiday in the future.

hey

I'm gonna continue the Survivor thread, I promise. I'm working on the second episdode, where NoMoney and other John Bryant tribe members rethink their alliances. I actually have a general idea of how it will turn out, I've mapped out a rough order of eliminations.

IDK

I just googled "Creepy old guy" and thought that the Arab dude peering out from behind a tree worked best.

"I don’t care what Shaq

"I don’t care what Shaq says,” Howard told L.A. reporters Thursday. “Shaq played the game; he’s done. He’s done. It’s time to move on. He hated the fact that when he played, the older guys were talking about him and how he played. And now he’s doing the exact same thing. Just let it go.”

Howard has refused to say

Howard has refused to say when he might make his Lakers debut, but the six-time All-Star is participating in every practice with no apparent limitations. Howard worked out on the Ontario court with Lakers assistant coaches Chuck Person and Darvin Ham about 30 minutes before the game, delighting hundreds of early arriving, camera-wielding fans who didn't get to see Bryant in action.

"I thought our guards did a very good job of finding him. I thought it was a good first performance for him."

Drummond acknowledged he had some nerves before the game.

"My teammates saw that, but they talked to me before the game," Drummond said. "They said, just play the game, do the things you need to do, help us on the defensive end and things will start coming to you.vsafd2323

Frank isn't too worried about

Frank isn't too worried about the expectations of Drummond. He said it would be a long process, like it is for most rookies.

"Anyone can do it once in a while," Frank said. "You don't get to this league without talent. What usually separates players is the ability, one, to fight through fatigue and have greater will than skill; two, is the consistency of doing what you do -- whatever your job is -- and doing it every single night."/lkj;9889

The regular season hasn’t

The regular season hasn’t even started yet and we have already gotten a ton of great quotes from some of the NBA’s finest.

Kobe Bryant recently mentioned that his next two seasons may be his last. During that same interview, Kobe offered a light critic of Dwight Howard’s personality and style of play:

“Dwight, to be a three-time Defensive Player of the Year, you’ve got to have a little of that dog in you,” Bryant said. “It’s just a matter of him digging deep and just pulling it out. But it’s already there. It’s just a matter of him having it become habit.”vsdfas
