This should help quiet all the “The ESPN and the NBA want a Kobe/LeBron Finals” talk, right? In other news, I’m honestly surprised the above segment wasn’t sponsored by Vitamin Water.

Blake Griffin Dominated SportsCenter

While systematically beating down the University of Maine last night to the tune of 22 points and 10 rebounds, Oklahoma’s Blake Griffin also took control of ESPN’s Top Plays later that evening. Out of 10 possible highlights, Griffin was in 3. Think of it this way, Blake Griffin made up 30 percent of SportsCenter’s best highlights from a full slate of Wednesday night sports.

Of course, Griffin is a lot more than just highlights.

As is stands today, it’s a safe bet that Griffin and Stephen Curry are neck-and-neck for Player of the Year. Curry is the media darling — rightfully so — and Griffin is the bull-in-a-China-shop you cannot possibly ignore. Not only is he one of the most dominant players in college basketball, he does it in a quite efficient manner. In totaling his 22 points, Griffin shot 11-13 from the field. That’s really damn accurate. Oh, and he’s shooting almost 70 percent from the floor in the process.

Brandon Jennings Loves High Tops

Brandon Jennings

Brandon Jennings showed up at the McDonald’s All-American festival with the best high-top fade since Arsenio and Kid… and apparently, every white announcer in the world decided to drop their street knowledge by discussing various hairstyles made popular by the Black community.

For instance (sorry, no audio), Doug Gottlieb was one of the announcers for the McDAA game last night and when they decided to focus on Jennings incredible haircut, Gottlieb just had to let the world know he knew all about the Gumby hairstyle and that he asked Jennings to consider it.

I can just imagine how that went down: “Hey, Brandon. What it be, my man? Love that `do but have you ever considered a, um, what was it now? Oh, A Gumby cut?” Jennings, “Um, no. Go away bothersome white guy trying to act cool.”

And then, on the late SportsCenter, John Anderson — this guy — decided to let everyone know that he, too rocked the high top when he was younger.


I’m guessing 3rd Bass and MC Serch’s hair was absolutely huge in Green Bay when ole John was growing up.
