Liam Neeson is probably the most hectic Knicks fan

liamneeson

We all know how passionate Knicks fans are… They demand success… Haven’t seen it for years… And are prepared to let the players know exactly how they feel.

However, ‘Taken 3′ star Liam Neeson has taken Knicks fandom to the next level in these commercials for ESPN’s coverage of Christmas Day games.

In the first commercial, Neeson has tracked down John Wall… to tell him about “his teams very specific set of skills” (which, with the team at 5-21, even i’m not sure exactly what ‘skills’ he’s talking about)

In the second commercial, Neeson’s basically thrown his hand up to replace Derek Fisher as the Knicks coach after he called up Amar’e Stoudemire to tell him exactly what he wants to see from him on the court.

Hey, Knicks… “good luck”.

Swaggy P wants to make Kazaam 2….starring Swaggy P

Greatest.headline.ever.

I know that’s what you’re all thinking.

If Swaggy P hasn’t provided us enough entertainment this season, this might just take the cake.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Swaggy talks about having fun on the court and the balance between being a serious player and a fun dude. This quote pretty much sums it up.

“As a player, you model yourself after other players. Kobe takes the same approach as Michael Jordan. But I follow someone like Magic Johnson; he showed emotion, he smiled and jumped around, he was happy for his teammates. There needs to be more players like that.

“Look at Shaq; he went out and had a movie called Kazaam. I’m trying to make Kazaam 2, with me as the star. We hope to push it to the theaters, but it might be straight-to-DVD [laughs]. I watched all of Shaq’s movies. Steel, when he was the hero with the iron suit on, oh man! It’s hard to act, period. So to watch somebody that’s seven feet tall in an all-iron suit, that’s big!”

I mean, sure Kazaam has been described as one of the worst movies of all time and barely grossed $19 million on its $20 million budget. Sometimes movies aren’t about money and critical acclaim. Sometimes they’re about letting hilarious athletes doing whatever they want.

If they let Kevin Durant make Thunderstruck, then they must make Kazaam starring Swaggy……and then Steel, starring Swaggy… and then Blue Chips also starring Swaggy.

Your move, Touchstone.
