Gauntlets are being thrown down out there.
And by gauntlets I mean Mags finishing her link with Frank Oz as Animal’s keeper. Keep warming up everyone. This is still the preseason. In a few weeks we will begin the first Six Degrees Tournament.
More details to come, but first . . .
If you read my bio below you will see that while I am in love with the movies, I also am a complete basketball nerd. So, finding myself knee deep in the NBA playoffs, let’s go with a little pro basketball theme.
Take us from Michael Jordan to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
Bonus points for linking them through Dr. J (using the Fish that Saved Pittsburgh, not Philadelphia). Double bonus points for using Alex English (and the movie Amazing Grace and Chuck). Triple bonus points for only using NBA players.
Let’s see what you got!
Dave Umbricht loves his family, movies and the NBA (in that order). His unexplainable, genetic attraction to movies flourished in the early ’80s thanks to Siskel and Ebert. It’s also believed Dave was the only 8-year-old to know of My Dinner with Andre, even though he didn’t see it until he was 28. In the ’90s he wrote three awful screenplays, including next summer’s Cowboys and Aliens (or at least a script with the same title). He still can’t dunk a basketball.
