Replace Player introductions with Arena introductions.

6 Mar

In today’s NBA, I’d have to say player introductions are at an all time low. It’s usually the catchiest part of a hip hop song looped over and over as the announcer yells names into a mic like it’s a monster truck show. The video you have to see on the jumbotron is also pretty bad 90% of the time, it’s just the roster holding the ball in various classic basketball holding positions. Like, the iconic ball squeeze or palming the ball in front of the camera.

I think the new big thing has to be player intros into the arena. It’s like a mini fashion show and you never know when a man purse might show up. Arena intros are totally the new hot trend this season

This is 10X cooler than player intros, no? Id really like to see this incorporated more into NBA games to spice things up.

 

Definitely the solution, definitely.

Ladies and gentlemen the Heatles!

James, on the Heat’s ability to pack the house even in Charlotte, “We call ourselves the ‘Heatles’ like the Beatles.”

– Lebron James

Miami has filled Lebron with even more hot air than we had originally thought. The Beatles had gotten in trouble for calling themselves bigger than Jesus. That was before Sgt Peppers, so i guess it was in bad taste.  The Heat players should get in just as much trouble for now making their self proclaimed nickname the Heatles. How can they compare themselves to the Beatles. The only arenas that generated enough screaming fans yelling at the Miami Heat in a Beatles type way has been The Q and Madison Square Garden, but obviously that was for different reasons. Point made.

Lebron  had a tough job trying to win back fans after this offseason and making new fans does not happen by comparing yourself to one of the best bands of all time. Maybe as a Beatles fan I’m being over sensitive. I go back reading over this post and I don’t think many NBA fans will take as much offense to the Heatles nicknames I have. Hmmm I don’t remember ever watching a game with cant buy me love playing in the arena.

Lebron as Count Chocula

So LeBron was wearing a vampire mouthpiece for the big Florida match up against the Magic this weekend. Even though it was Halloween  weekend it would have been more appropriate to wear around the time of  “the decision” since he was sucking the blood out of Cleveland fans. It made watching the game fun because every time he went up for a dunk Comments were made in the vein of “damn that was a monster mash”.
