Viva El Pye, certainly the lead Chum contributor of 2009.

Head coach of San Antonio Spurs has some fun with Shaquille O’Neal

November 2, 2008

Shaquille O’Neal is a dreadful free-throw shooter. Hence, opposing NBA teams have been imposing an unofficial rule called “Hack a Shaq” in close games. Teams will foul O’Neal late in games if they’re trailing as O’Neal will likely only make 1 free throw, and his opponents get the ball back. O’Neal has bitched and moaned about this practice for years, but never really improved his free-throw shooting either. During last year’s NBA playoffs, the San Antonio Spurs employed the Hack a Shaq technique often and Shaq ripped the team publicly for it. Last night Spurs’ head coach Gregg Popovich decided to have some fun with Shaq.

Worst NBA lottery picks of all time

June 26, 2008

The top 14 worst NBA lottery picks according to ESPN.com. Only 1 Detroit Piston listed. Damn you Darko……

#1 ranked Worst NBA Lottery pick of all time-Kwame Brown

Full list here

Here’s a video of Darko Milicic, #2 Worst Lottery pick, after his Serbian national team lost to Greece in the 2007 Eurobasket 2007. He was super pissed and promised a rather vulgar, and specific revenge on the referees and their families. He’s got fire, this kid. NSFW subtitles.

Girl highschool basketball player dominates

June 24, 2008

I know this is a few months, old, but a reader just brought this to my attention. Brittney Griner, a Houston junior has already committed to Baylor University. Here are her stats from the game in question.

2 dunks
29 points
11 blocks
13 rebounds
9 assist

Now, here’s an interview with Brittney and her coach. Ok, it’s great she has skills. My question is this: does anyone else think her testosterone level might just be a wee bit elevated? I mean, when they finally did a one on one interview with her a certain Austin Powers scene came to memory. Are there any former East German athletic coaches that have emigrated to the Houston area? Seriously, what’s the medical explanation for her masculine voice/features?
