I might have found the most 'bawful NBA-related Christmas gift of all. A site called HumorousT-shirts
, which specializes in "funny t-shirts with jokes, quotes and slogans," provides a category called Basketball Quotes
. For a mere $16.99 (plus S&H), you can have one of their pre-selected quotes emblazoned on a cheap white or gray t-shirt. (Note that the gray t-shirt costs an extra $3 for some reason. Possibly because it deflects cosmic rays.)Warning: Actual t-shirt will not look this cool.
Here's how HumorousT-shirts.com describes this very special offering:
"Basketball quotes on t-shirts will make your obnoxiously tall friends burst out in laughter. The basketball quotes on these tees are from the most famous names in the game. So, show a little respect and buy a few funny t-shirts with famous basketball quotes on them and then show yourself off to the whole gang."
You know, I've been looking for something that would bring some LOLs into the life of my obnoxiously tall friends. All none of them. Oh, and those "most famous names in the game" include such basketball immortals as Nik Posa ("A tough day at the office is even tougher when your OFFICE contains spectator seating."), Dan Frisby ("Basketball is like photography, if you don't focus, all you have is the negative."), Shannon Fish ("If you are going to take it to the bank, then you better cash it in.") and the mysterious Author Unknown ("My responsibility is getting all my players playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the one on the back."
For me, though, the real hook was the quote at the bottom of the page, under the heading "Hear what the athletes are saying about our t-shirt with basketball quotes."
"Yo, dude, these represent the finest basketball quotes from the biggest names in the history of the game. Do some respecting and buy some t-shirts with these great basketball quotes on them. Don't be a fool and act real cool, when you're not. Only these funny basketball quotes on these t-shirts will make you halfway cool. The other half you have to do on your own." - Larry Bird
Uh huh. If Larry Bird really said that, I'll use my 1986 World Champion Boston Celtics replica banner as a table cloth. Oops. I do that already. Never mind.
