Thanks to You Been Blinded, we now know what NBA ex-coach and current analyst Jeff Van Gundy learned from the Roger Clemens episode. Seems Van Gundy thought of new ways to dope up the NBA.
Jeff Van Gundy was a good coach but he’s a better broadcaster. He’s straight up and doesn’t hold back. He has some biases, but none are as bad as Doug Collin’s love for Steve Nash. I think there’s a 85% chance that Doug Collins calls his sons daily and yells “Why couldn’t you be like Steve?!?!”
So near the end of ESPN’s broadcast of the Milwaukee Bucks-Los Angeles Lakers game, the discussion turned to the health of Kobe Bryant. It had been revealed earlier in the game that Bryant was suffering from an infection.
JVG: If I was Phil Jackson I would inject a dose of upper respiratory viral infection into my whole team tomorrow at practice. That would be practice.
MB: In case you’re just tuning in and you don’t know what this sick man is talking about.. Bryant not feeling well, before the game, and that’s what he has, but it certainly hasn’t affected him, 37 points 7 assist 5 rebounds.
JVG: Can you do that? Can you inject somebody with a serum of upper respiratory viral infection?
MB: I believe that’s illegal.
JVG: Isn’t that what Clemens said he did?
MB: (subtly laughing) You’re going down a dangerous path. I’ll ask you to reconsider during this timeout.
They didn’t talk about it anymore after the timeout, but they didn’t need to. JVG had done his job..
Brilliant. inject virus into the butt. We are thinking Nobel Prize.
BTW, anyone looking for a blog name, a new possibility emerged: "Roger Clemens's Abscess".
