Back in the Days du le YAY, I knew every roster backward and forward. This, of course, contributed to my eventual oversaturation and departure from all that is professional basketball.
Anyway, I was thinking aboot it, and have no idea where/if/how the following people are in the league:
Earl Watson – Last time I knew for sure he was with the Sonics, but I’m going to take a stab at the Hawks.
Vince Carter – I know he’s still with the Nets, but I don’t think anyone has said his name at all.
It feels like he should get traded to the Hawks.
Ricky Davis – Hawks?
Antoine Walker – I’m guessing Grizzlies? Could be Timberwolves. Hawks maybe?
An actual Hawk – Toronto had, in late 1999, a real, live hawk on its roster. His name was Hawkey, and he could “nail dem treys,” as my brother would say. I think Hawkey is out of the NBA as a player, but works in the Hawks’ front office as a bird.
Heroes, the TV show – “This week, let’s have Mohinder and Mrs. Petrelli team up in Brazil, where they find another mysterious company that we find out Matt is in charge of with his aunt, who can read minds and see the future, but not the past. (We can show this by just shaking the camera a lot while she stares at it.)
Oh, and let’s have Mr. Petrelli be a good guy this week, then next week we’ll have him bad again, and teamed up with Claire six years in the future, where they’re trying to revive Sylar (who’s good again) from a coma that Mrs. Petrelli put him in, because she’s bad that week, and plays for…the Hawks?”
Why do I assume all these people play for the Hawks? Don’t the Hawks only have like 11 players? I know they’re 5-0, but still.
Here’s your daily Twilight update – I’m now 3/4 of the way through this, and am of the opinion this would make a nice short story in like “Fake Vampire Short Stories For Girls Monthly”.
Like 400 pages in, and here are your plot points.
1) Girl moves to new town.
2) Girl meets boy.
3) Boy is vampire.
4) They like each other.
That’s it. That’s the entire book so far. I only write movies, but I’m almost sure that like books are supposed to contain some sort of build to a climax or something.
There’s like no story in this book. It desperately needs something like an “if I ever meet a vampire I can’t save the orphanage,” or “Daddy’s heart transplant is going to cost $50,000 and if I ever meet a vampire, I can’t find $50,000” plot or something.
(What’s the father’s purpose in the book, anyway? If you dropped that character altogether, would anything change? All he ever does is leave for work and come home from work.)
And no, I have no idea why I’m so determined to finish it.
I guess I figure it’s one of those things like, “if you can’t finish a stupid book, how can you ever expect to be able to do anything?”
UPDATE: Ricky Davis plays for the Clippers.
