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


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.

Warriors team plane turns up

The Golden State Warriors team plane looks fun as hell…..and why wouldn’t it be. They’re 11-2, on a six game winning streak and are arguably the best team in the NBA.

From what I can see, there are three keys to the teams success this season.

1. Andrew Bogut rapping and head-nodding along to O.T. Genasis – CoCo

2. Leandro Barbosa being Leandro Barbosa; and

3. David Lee clearly kicking ass at poker.

David Lee plays for keeps

Washington Wiazards playing jumbotron FIFA15

As if this isn’t the coolest thing you’ll see today.

The Wizards had the day off and did exactly what anyone with an XBOX and the keys to the Verizon Centre would do, play FIFA15 on the jumbotron.

Justin Timberlake is no bandwagon fan

timberlake-grizzMemphis native and Grizzlies minority owner Justin Timberlake is as happy as anyone with the Grizzlies red-hot start to the season. He showed them some love on Twitter, but the trolls just couldn’t resist accusing him of being a bandwagon fan.

This guy tried to call him out, but Justin wasn’t having any of that.

Turns out this guy has way too much time on his hands.

If John Wall is allowed to wear an Atlanta Hawks, Steve Smith throwback in the summer, I’ll allow this from JT.

If all else fails, JT can always cite multiple song lyrics referencing his Memphisness.

e.g. Senorita

He’s a friend of mine, yes, yes I am
And he goes by the name, Justin

All the way from Memphis, Tennessee
And he’s got something special for y’all tonight

Or you know, go back to the “I am an owner of the team and was born and raised in Memphis” argument…..or whatever.
