Thinks He’s / More Like: Erick Dampier

November 7, 2008

Size, strength, and long-term durability are a hard combination to find in the NBA. In the past few years, combination center/power forwards have become the norm. There are few true big men left, and although he may not be a household name outside Dallas – or perhaps I should say outside his own home – he is undeniably a 5.

Meet today’s Thinks He’s / More Like feature, the greatest basketball player ever to come out of Monticello, Mississippi (*cough* except Al Jefferson *cough*): Dallas Mavericks starting (for now) center Erick Dampier.

Crossover : Chris Bosh

October 28, 2008

Sometimes in our scientifically-provable comparisons of the personalities of NBA players with standouts in other fields, we come across a case in which the details match so perfectly, in which the evidence is so unimpeachable, that we have to separate them from the pack. Welcome to the world of the crossover.

Thinks He’s / More Like: Jason Williams

October 9, 2008

Having recently announced his decision to retire from the NBA, the Internets are filled with tributes to the hard-running, no-look-passing, sometimes-brilliant-mostly-sloppy point guard from West Virginia.

He exploded into the league in 1998 with three major claims to fame: 1. He was the first white NBA player to be decidedly and obviously part of the hip hop generation – earning him the nickname White Chocolate (har har) 2. He was suspended for life from the Florida team after being caught smoking weed FOUR times; and 3. He went to high school with Randy Moss. Say howdy to today’s Thinks He’s / More Like feature: Jason Williams.
