Carlos Boozer and Robert Sacre to Star in New “Parent Trap” Remake

The Los Angeles Lakers have had a very disappointing start to their 2014-2015 season. They currently are 6-16 and it doesn’t look like that record is going to improve anytime soon. Fortunately, they finally have some good news.

According to our sources, Walt Disney CEO, Bob Iger, approached the Lakers with the idea to remake the classic family comedy, “The Parent Trap”, with two of their prominent players, Carlos Boozer and Robert Sacre. “I’m gonna be completely honest with you, at first I thought they were the same goddamn person,” Iger commented, “And to be completely honest a second time, half the time I still can’t tell which one is which, but I’m very excited about this project. For a long time, we wanted to remake [The Parent Trap], but never could find the right mix of people. Disney believes that it has found its long sought after winning combination… well not winning at basketball, but you get what I mean.”

Boozer and Sacre are very much committed to the role of long lost twins who both eat oreos with peanut butter. And surprisingly, one of them will actually be speaking with a British accent. I’m just not sure which one.

“I guess this is what happens when you move to Hollywood,” says Boozer or Sacre (it was very difficult to interview them individually because they are both method actors). “I am very excited to join Michael Jordan and Kevin Durant as basketball players who have starred in popular basketball movies. The new ‘Parent Trap’ will be this generation’s ‘Space Jam’. Lindsay Lohan aint shit.”

The Lakers could not be more thrilled about this opportunity. Many fans want the Lakers to have a terrible season in the hopes for a high draft pick. Even Hall-of-famer Magic Johnson agrees saying, “I hope the Lakers lose every game.” Having two players completely out of the equation definitely increases their chances of having a terrible season.

It was also reported that Dennis Quaid will be reprising his role as the father and Rosie Perez will be replacing Natasha Richardson as the mother.

Mike Dunleavy Jr. Writes Caesar Salad Cookbook

1488131_10203465962713904_8017879885109890941_n

Everyone knows how difficult it is to make a caesar salad. First you have to look up the ingredients, then go to the grocery store to buy them. Basketball player Mike Dunleavy Jr. knows your pain, that’s why this holiday season he will be releasing his first ever book, “How to Make a Caesar Salad by Mike Dunleavy Jr.”

We know what you’re thinking, “Mike Dunleavy Jr. is a basketball player, why the hell should I trust his culinary skills?” First off, before Mike played basketball at Duke, he was accepted to go to culinary school at Johnson and Whales. However, before accepting their scholarship, his father Mike Dunleavy Sr., a famous basketball coach, told Mike if he went through with culinary school, he’d put his son’s nuts through a meat grinder.

Ever since his dream was crushed by his dad’s wishes, Mike has secretly spent every offseason hiding out in various restaurant establishments across the country, including Applebees, and Bob Evans restaurants. In his new cook book, Mike talks about the many different chefs he met during each offseason, and details all the many recipes his chef friends have taught him about making the perfect caesar salad along the way.

We asked Mike Dunleavy Sr. about what he thinks of his son’s cookbook, and he replied, “if you buy my son’s book, you’re pretty much burning money.” The book will hit stores right in time for the holiday, and will provide the reader with over 200 pages of different ways to make a caesar salad, so you can show off to your friends and family during the holidays.

Steve Nash to Sport New Body Cast For Halloween This Year

 

SteveNashCast

Just as things were looking brighter for veteran point guard Steve Nash, his season was quickly over in a flash. The 79 year-old (actually 40) was ruled out for the remainder of the 2014-2015 Lakers season for sustaining another back injury. As heartbreaking as it must be for the fans of the former MVP, Nash is actually having fun with it this Halloween.

This Halloween Steve Nash will be handing out candy on Trick-or-Treat night, despite being in a full body cast, writhing in pain from a number of ailments. “I think of it as my costume this year.” Nash murmured through the hole in his head cast. “Since I can’t play this season, I figured I’d give back to the kids and hand out some candy. Well, actually my nurse hands it out to them. I can’t move my arms.”

So even though we won’t see Nash suit up in a Lakers jersey this season, local fans on Halloween night can see him suited up in a body cast. Nash is hoping for it to be one spooky night. “Yeah I’m having my house set up like it’s haunted. Kids will come in an see the decorations. Then they’ll see me and probably think I’m a dead body, but really it’s just their favorite player Steve Nash. I hope it’s scary.” We’ll see how receptive Lakers fans will be of Steve Nash’s makeshift haunted house. It’s certainly going to be interesting, especially considering Nash still hasn’t chosen which type of candy to distribute. “Do kids still like Whoppers?” Nash asked.

Lucky Fan Goes Home With Piece of Paul George’s Fibula

PacersFan

Friday was a tragic day for basketball fans everywhere when Paul George, a member of the Indiana Pacers and the US men’s national basketball team, broke his leg in the most gruesome of fashions during the US Men’s basketball showcase game. The members of Team USA looked on in horror as the all star guard/forward took quite the tumble and basically split his leg in half. (If you’re squeamish, we recommend not Googling the images of his leg.)

Almost everyone in the building was in shock, except for one lucky fan who got a surprise at the end of the night. Garrett Paulson, a dedicated Pacers fan, was in attendance on Friday for the showcase. When George went down it was a hard pill to swallow for Paulson, but his night wouldn’t end in dismay. The Pacers fan noticed when he looked down that a piece of bone was laying on the floor by his shoe. Paulson knew that there were no chicken wings being sold at the concession stand, so it had to be a bone from something else.

When the injury occurred, a piece of George’s leg flung into the stands without anyone realizing what had happened. As medics searched around the court for the missing piece of fibula, Paulson realized what was by his seat. Paulson then quietly grabbed the bone and put it in his back pocket before fleeing the arena. He is currently making a Paul George shrine in his basement. Paul George’s recovery time now depends on whether or not Garrett Paulson will give back the piece of bone, however, it doesn’t seem likely.

Blake Griffin Will Not Play for Team USA to Focus on Acting

All-Star forward for the Los Angeles Clippers, Blake Griffin will not be joining the USA Basketball team in Spain this summer. According to his agent, Scott Van Scottenstein, “Blake wants to focus and dedicate 100 percent of his energy on improving his acting skills for his many sponsors.” While Griffin easily had his best basketball season averaging career highs 24.1 ppg, 9.5 rpg, 3.9 apg,, he was not satisfied with acting in only 287 Subway commercials, 134 Nike commercials, and 4,399 Kia a.k.a Griffinforce commercials.

Griffin would also like to take his talents to Broadway. This makes it seems like he would like to play for New York Knicks, but he actually wants to act in Broadway musicals and plays. Blake commented, “I would absolutely love to bask in the bright lights, dance to a choreographed number in costume, and belt out high notes, just like my idol, Liza Minnelli.”

There have also been claims that some Clipper’s players will be boycotting the team while it’s under the controversial ownership of Donald Sterling. One of those players, All-Star guard Chris Paul, commented on Blake Griffin’s aspirations. “Blake is like a brother to me. Hey even my kid loves him! But this Broadway shit is crazy. He might as well play for that racist old bastard.”

Kevin Love Leaving Team USA To Focus More On Leaving Minnesota

Klovefun

Star forward/center Kevin Love has announced that he will not be a part of Team USA for the upcoming FIBA Basketball World Cup, leaving a big hole on the roster. Love was originally on the roster, but decided that he had too much to focus on, like not wanting to play for his current team, the Minnesota Timberwolves. “I’m not playing for Team USA in September. I really should be focusing on not playing for Minnesota. What do you guys expect from me?” Love said in an interview early this morning. “This decision is a hard one, but it will be better if I leave Team USA to put all my energy into leaving the Timberwolves.”

Not only is Kevin Love expected to leave Team USA and the Timberwolves, but he has a few other things that he wants to focus on leaving as well. “I’m leaving my girlfriend. I’m leaving my insurance company. I’m thinking about leaving my bank. There are just a lot of things I need to leave after leaving Team USA.”

Kevin will be taking some time off, but sure enough sooner or later he will get right back to leaving as soon as possible. “When you make too many commitments, it really sucks. Leaving everything is just easier.” Midway through the interview, Love left without even giving reporters a chance to write anything down. “Yeah I’m leaving, sorry guys.” Love said.

Jeremy Lin Gets Lost In Los Angeles Bed Bath & Beyond

LinBed

On a warm afternoon this week, Jeremy Lin decided to take a trip to a local Bed, Bath & Beyond in LA to buy a humidifier for his new apartment. Lin, having just moved to Los Angeles after being traded from Houston, felt his new apartment was a bit dry and needed to take care of the situation as soon as possible. Jeremy figured that Bed, Bath & Beyond was a good option to find top of the line apartment needs, but what he didn’t anticipate was the amount of confusion and suffering he would have to go through to find a simple humidifier.

Getting to the store was the easy part for Lin. “I just typed in “Bed Beth and Beyond” into my phone’s GPS and sure enough there was one like right down the street from my apartment.” Getting out of the store was a whole other problem. “Once I was inside the store, I made my way past the ‘As Seen on TV’ section and past the wall full of drapes. Then I looked around and had no idea where I was anymore.” Lin said. The Laker point guard looked around for help but he couldn’t even find his way out of a maze of pillow accessories. “At one point I just screamed for help and still nobody was around. I started to worry.”

After walking around aimlessly for 28 minutes by the ‘Back to College’ aisle, Lin called it quits. “I gave up. The humidifier wasn’t even worth it anymore. I was scared for my life and just wanted to get out.” Lin retraced his steps, found the exit door, and sprinted out of the Bed, Bath and Beyond. He then made his way back to his studio apartment and ordered a deluxe humidifier from Amazon. It looks like Jeremy Lin will have to deal with his dry apartment for another week or so. “Yeah I don’t have Amazon Prime, so the delivery will take a bit longer” Lin stated.
