Earlier this season Milwaukee Bucks forward Charlie Villanueva created a stir by posting on Twitter during halftime. It can be debated whether or not this is the best use of time for a player at halftime, but it gives great insight for NBA fans.
Picture the Lakers’ locker room at halftime of Finals game 2… Lamar Odom has a feed bag full of candy attached to his face, Phil Jackson is meditating in the corner, Sasha Vujacic is brushing his doll hair and Spike Lee is filming Kobe Bryant eating Taco Bell for his next documentary “Kobe Using Spork”
Over in the visiting locker room Dwight Howard has changed into a child’s size medium tank top and JJ Redick is styling his faux hawk. But what if everyone was tweeting instead?
KobeB24: People wondering why I seem so determined & focused now that we are in the finals. Pretty simple: so Shaq will finally stop asking me how his ass tastes.
LOdom7: Everyone keeps talking about how much candy I eat. I’m just happy no one has made the connection between that and all the weed I got in trouble over in college.
PauGas16: I’m a finesse European big man and I have to battle Dwight Howard in the paint all game? FML.
AMorrison: Stuck in street clothes for the whole playoffs. I wonder if there is any connection between that and girls no longer claiming to like my wispy ‘stache?
JJRedick: Mikael Peitrus needs to quit fouling so much, nobody wants me to be stuck playing crunch time minutes.
DHoward12: 6 quarters of the Finals have gone by and I still haven’t dunked the ball. Maybe not having any post moves is my kryptonite???
CourtneyLee: Still getting adjusted to playing with this mask. Don’t think it will be an issue though, I mean its not like it’s going to make me blow a wide open lay-up for the win.
