youtube’s BoredShortsTV runs through a quick primer on how to correctly do a layup.
Good morning fellow alttabers! Welcome to a new series here on ALTTAB. We will have a weekly (if not closer to daily) update about the wonder that is ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless on First Take. This clip’s discussion point? Whether or not Kobe Bryant deserves to be the highest paid player (by more than $7 million) in the NBA. Commence the seal barking:
Feel free to finish the sentence in the headline in the comments below, because I just….I just can’t.
DotW: Melky Cabrera. He’s having an amazing season. Oh, what’s that? He tested positive for PEDs and is serving a 50-game suspension? And then tried to cover his ass with a fake website? Of course he did.
Mr. Pancakes: #NBARank is back. The first 100 (meaning 401-500) were released. Who surprised you?
Burrito: The NFL, for continuing to prolong the referee strike. The replacement refs are laughably terrible. There’s no way Goodell goes into the season with replacements, so why don’t they just cut the bullshit and make a deal?
Watch this video of Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless argue over whether or not the addition of Dwight Howard makes the Lakers the team to beat in the West.
AHHHH!!! I AM SO ANGRY!!!! This video, this pretend we are friends haha back and forth bullshit between Stephen A. and Skip, causes me physical pain and aunguish. Even the host’s “OMG you guys are so funny I’m getting an ab workout” shtick makes me roll my eyes so hard I think I’ve severed my optic nerves.
The banter and comraderie between these two is so contrived, so forced, that it is literally impossible for me to watch this all the way through. They are even talking about my favorite topic in sports right now, the Lakers trading for Dwight Howard, and I still cannot sit through its entirety.
Holy shit, these guys are awful.
DotW: Rick Reilly, for writing the most inane piece of fluff “journalism” EVAR
Mr. Pancakes: Great Britain (or, Andy Murray), for hearing ALTTAB’s call to arms and defending the Crown’s honour (see what I did there?) on the grass of Wimbledon
Burrito: Katie Ledecky (I really wanted to embed the Katie Ledecky video because its so amazing, but goddamn NBC has messed everything up so you’ll have to leave this page to watch it on theirs. Its stupid, but its worth it.)
And one last thing: Michael Phelps has been dating a hot, tall blonde chick. That’s fine. But did you know she has been wearing an AMERICAN FLAG MUSTACHE RING TO THE OLYMPICS? WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
