    The NBA Playoffs Media Thread (Dan LeBatard included)

    I'm sure before this is all said and done, there will be a lot to talk about with regards to the media.

    Here's the first tidbit:

    SCOTTIE SENT TO BENCH, ABC YANKS PIPPEN FROM PREGAME

    By ANDREW MARCHAND

    May 12, 2006 -- Scottie Pippen has been cut from ABC's NBA postseason roster, a network spokesman confirmed this week.

    The move by ABC Sports executives continues the biggest game of musical chairs currently going on in the sports television business. Since its inception four years ago, ABC's pregame has included Mike Tirico, Bill Walton, Tom Tolbert and Steve Jones.

    When this year began, ABC's plan was to have Tirico and Pippen joined by a variety of celebrities for round-table discussions.

    After the All-Star break this season, ABC completely reshuffled its pregame show - an unusual move for TV - by adding Dan Patrick, Mark Jackson and Michael Wilbon to join Pippen. Tirico moved to NBA play-by-play.

    Last weekend, Pippen was noticeably absent for a second straight week. Grant Hill was sitting in Pippen's regular chair. Hill showed potential, and ABC could very well try to have him return to its set later in the playoffs.

    "Grant did a good job as a guest, but, as of now, the plans for the NBA Finals are to feature three core commentators,'' ESPN/ABC Sports VP Josh Krulewitz said.

    Krulewitz added that Pippen will remain on ESPN's NBA programs.

    Overheard on ESPN Radio this morning...

    "Well we'll finally get to see what the Pistons can do against a healthy Heat team. The Heat were decimated by injuries that last time these teams met in the ECF".

    Give me a fucking break.

    Hater Exhibit A:

    At 7-0, Rasheed Wallace was recently entered in the Guinness Book of World Records as earth's largest crybaby. Wallace believes the next foul he commits will be the first he has ever committed. He gets this information from the aliens who talk to him regularly, telling him to make guarantees that are 100 percent right 67 percent of the time. Wallace is one of the many reasons Wade says there is no team in the league he likes less than the Pistons.
    The Pistons also have a remarkable number of players with names you might find working in a hair salon.

    Chauncey.

    Tayshaun.

    Antonio.

    Lindsey.

    Maurice.

    And that's not even counting Team Hair Salon's coach -- a grown man named Flip


    Ha ha!!! Those negroes sure have funny names! Danny is right on!
