Comprehensive 2013 NBA Draft Review


by Jacob, ZWR Basketball Insider

Anybody know when the draft is? What? It’s when? Yesterday?

Just kidding, you guys. What kind of NBA Insider would I be if I had missed the first twenty or so picks to line soccer fields for a 6v6 tournament? Exactly. Let’s get to it.

A Detailed Analysis of Kyle Kendrick’s Pitching Motion



“Let’s go, Kyle! You can do this! Mom even told you so on the phone last night.”


“Oooooooooh, a ball!”

“Gee willikers, Kyle! Get it together!”

“You're from the 70s, but I'm a 90s bitch …  I love it!”

“Damn that song’s catchy. Snap out of it…”
  
“OK, let’s go… Here comes the secret weapon.”

.@ohholybutt Analyzes Potential Sixers First Round Pick


Here’s a fun fact: I did not watch the Philadelphia 76ers play a single second of basketball this year. No, my knowledge of the team is based entirely on what I saw on Twitter and what I just read on the team’s Wikipedia page*. As a former NBA player** and scout***, however, I feel I am more than qualified to discuss where the team should go with its first round draft pick this year.

BACHCAP GERMANY


Hey there kids, ZWR and Evan back once again to review this debacle of a television show. Let's jump right to it!

Most Distinguished Traveler
ZWR: Has to be the plumber. But this is based purely on my imagination, in which he only packed a plunger, wrench, and handful of spare towels for the trip. And I know that commercial plumbers do all kinds of cool stuff on giant construction projects with those fire torch thingies on pipes and installing valves and crap (no pun intended!), but yeah I always come back to plungers and that was the first thing he packed. Was Super Mario a plumber or just a guy who lived in pipes?

THE EVSTER: This category is not “Most Economical Packer” or “Guy Most Likely to Fix a Pipe,” this is “Most Distinguished Traveler” -- aka the guy who doesn’t travel in sweatpants, and probably owns all sorts of gadgets from Brookstone and SkyMall, like the inflatable headrest or the frogclock (it’s a clock, but it’s also a frog). I think that’s gotta be Michael, based solely on the fact that he wears cufflinks.

ZWR: This dork? Yeah right Dante is his favorite author my butt.


Bratwurst to First
ZWR: I don’t even know what this means but it made me laugh so whattya think Evster?

Roy Halladay Riding a Lion, and an Injury Update



This picture was actually taken 10 minutes after surgery




Rich Dubee, who is always 100% truthful with the media and Philadelphia baseball fans, yesterday provided Matt Gelb via The 700 Level/CSN Philly/Enrico's Blog via the Internet via the Eath with an incredibly exciting update on Roy's rehab status:

“It looks very, very good,” Dubee said. “The arm action, he’s able to get his arm back up very easily. No effort at all. Whereas before because of the stuff that he had going on in his shoulder, he couldn’t get it up on a consistent basis (wait what). But now his arm slot is fantastic and he’s doing very very well so far. He’s a long ways from pitching, but everything so far is going to according to plan.”
CONSIDER YOURSELVES OFFICIALLY ON NOTICE, DONKEY NL EAST TEAMS.

World War P: An Oral History of the Phillies Apocalypse




With a payroll an estimated production budget approaching $200 million, the Philadelphia Phillies Brad Pitt zombie flick still managed to underwhelm many critics this weekend, despite nearly unachievable and ridiculous expectations set by the front office box office expectations.

Though some lauded the aging, punchless team film as a heroic, re-tread tire on its final journey refreshing, sober entry in the well-worn zombie canon, many fans have started to turn on the organization, some media critics jeered Ruben Amaro Jr.'s Pitt's roster construction performance as desperate, pathetic and unimaginative wooden and "act-by-the-numbers."

Ultimately, with a poor showing this weekend amidst the ash and CGI ruin of center city Philadelphia, the Phillies the film failed to gain substantial ground on its Brave and mohawked rivals--leaving fans and media members producers and fanboys alike to wonder if the first true weekend of summer 2013 truly marked the beginning of our joyless, dystopian future of the end for the zombie genre.

BACHCAP DES: EPISODE 4


What's up, kids. Evster and I are back to recap Monday's episode of The Bachelorette. But ZWR, it's Wednesday- what gives? I'll tell you what gives: Evan had sweet lawn seats to the Paula Cole concert on Monday night, so everyone had to wait for him to get his big, stupid, fat butt into gear. But I'm not bitter.


THING THEY DIDN'T MENTION ABOUT ATLANTIC CITY
ZWR: That it really isn’t “like Las Vegas, but on the ocean.”

THE EVSTER: The smell of fresh blood in the morning.

ZWR: No but for serious I love the whole Jersey shore nothing personal AC *fistbump*

.@ohholybutt Recaps Heat/Spurs Game Six


Jacob didn't watch last night's game, but that's certainly not going to stop him from writing an ace recap. Enjoy!

That game last night, huh? Wow. I definitely watched it. You might say it was a game of two halves, as that is how many halves are in basketball and also they would not be called halves were there more or less than two. The Heat and Spurs both played hard and executed their basketball things at an elite level. Players on both teams could be seen performing bounce passes with precision one can only find at the professional ranks, and backdoor cuts were seen on multiple occasions throughout the course of the game, probably.
