Editor's note: So everybody knows, there will be a Livin' Large epilogue soon and I will return to my normal posts/articles when the new NBA season begins (or is close to beginning). Right now, these comics are just a fun way for me to pass the time. Just in case you were wondering.

Haha' Whats up with the hostility!

Anonymous Ruben said...
Brilliant. Although, I think you should replace the Greg Oden line with Joel Pryzbilla, just to piss off all his fans that, until yesterday, I never knew existed.

I want to raise a fuss over your greg oden comment. As a Blazer fan I MUST disagree. He is very good as stopping easy lay-ins.

The only problem is he can only do it six times a game...

Making fun of Greg Ostertag is like dunking a tennis ball - awesome fun in the eight grade, embarrassing to everyone involved into adulthood.

Imagine is the Blazers had Durant, Roy, and Alderidge.

Dynasty in the making.

This is a complete lie. John Mayer's vagina has totally gotten more action. I mean come on, a collab with Kanye West!

Blogger Basketbawful said...
Don Ebay Molse -- No hostility. Just funnin'.

Ruben -- Clearly the Vanilla Godzilla has achieved Folk Hero status.

DeWoof01 -- Sadly, to this point, Greg Ostertag's career has been more accomplished than Oden's. That is, so far, 'Tag has been the better player.

Ouch.

Anonymous #1 -- I don't care what you say. I will never, ever get tired of mocking Greg Ostertag. OR dunking tennis balls...possibly down the throat of a persnickety line judge.

Anonymous #2 -- As in, "Greg Ostertag couldn't get off the floor even after taking a vigra."

Michael Hsu -- I dunno. Might not be enough balls for that team.

Hi basket, any news on the epilogue?

No idea who all these guys are, being in England and a rugby player!

p.s. they are all very funny though after googling them all!

Bigfoots dick?? Some say that's the smell of desire...

Apparently Vanilla Godzilla is the new Mamba.

Blogger Basketbawful said...
Mintz... -- Or a used diaper... filled with Indian food. You know, desire smells like that to some people.

AnacondaHL -- How about "Clay Aiken's vagina"?

Blogger BadDave said...
Bawful - How about not.

"Coach Sloan always said 'I wouldn't let you hold a baby, unless I didn't want that baby anymore.'"
Funny, I thought you said the same thing about Kwame Brown.

Blogger Daniel said...
I love the comic, but since when is Dirk a huge disappointment? It's not like he underwhelms in the playoffs, it's just you can't win it all yourself. Give him a Pippen or Shaq or Tayshaun/Chauncey/Sheed combo and he's got numerous rings.

Shit, he'd at least have one if the refs didn't have money riding on the '06 Finals.

Bawful I agree on the oden ostertag point. However the point i was making above is that oden does stop the layin, however he will foul everytime he does it so therefore on six times a game. But in all fairness i think everyone can agree that the guy looked laggy and slow last year, but i think it was mainly because of the year off from surgery and portland babying his return until the start of training camp. I mean even though he is going on 57 you don't go from unbelievable athleticism to sloth in 2 years for no reason.

Blogger Wild Yams said...
Daniel - Maybe if he'd been paired with someone like Steve Nash, who is the best player ever at making his teammates better, then he would have won something. Oh wait...

Come on people, I'm only kidding. No need to pry open that particular can of worms again :)

Blogger TheOdenator said...
Dewoof, should have left it alone, the joke was great, didn't need to be explained.

Bawful, why do i get the feeling that your 'soon' is not nearly as quick as mine is? That and Oden's rookie numbers would have been career highs for Ostertag, so yea what's up big man? How do you feel about getting served on your own blog for the world to see? Bawful doesn't know junk about middling big men who look like they're in there 50's what's up?!?!??

Just kidding.

Nothing to do with this post in particular, but I saw this tee shirt and considering your roots, I thought you'd dig it...

Keep up the great work...

Many of your readers were fathered out of wedlock by Przybilla. We let it pass when you posted that man-love picture starring GFP awhile back. No more shots at papa...

Blogger CassavaLeaf.com said...
and when did white guys get so darn defensive about their stiffs?

did i miss the memo?

and if we are talking bout stiffs:

Brad Miller > any white stiff that's playing now INCLUDING Greg Oden

Anonymous Anonymous said...
bawful, where's the rest of the worsties?!

Blogger Wild Yams said...
I just realized I hadn't read anything by Bill Simmons in about two months, so I went over and checked out the columns I'd missed. Did anyone else close the Vegas ones after only a paragraph or two? Who. Fucking. Cares.

Man am I bored.

"Many of your readers were fathered out of wedlock by Przybilla."

So that's what happened to Poppa. I'm going to need some back child support!

"and when did white guys get so darn defensive about their stiffs? "

Around 1948 or so.

"Brad Miller > 75% of all centers that's playing now, INCLUDING Greg Oden"

Fixed it.

Blazers fans are some of the most hardcore in all of sports. Nobody messes with Pryz! Blazers Edge represent!
You all will love our big white stiffs when they're throwing it down your throats.

hilarious. although i agree with daniel, how could you call dirk a "great disappointment"? kinda ruined it for me...

Blogger Darrin said...
Come on with the Footbawful already..

Blogger shayan said...
Freaking awesome work as usual, but I also feel strongly with the others who question the whole Dirk being a 'great disappointment' tag. It's easy to make fun of him, I can see that, but he's a HELL of a player.

Anonymous Anonymous said...
great work! the style of the comic: pictures, text, layout - it all fits together nicely :-) However, dissing Dirk spoiled it a little bit, even though it came from the big Mr Ostertag...
How come you're into comics all of the sudden, I mean I wasn't around checking your posts for some weeks, but there are many of them now. I think it is great, keep them coming, also once the real deal NBA season is alive and kicking. Cheers :-)

Blogger Basketbawful said...
Man, people really love the Vanilla Godzilla and Dirk Nowitzki around here.

It's all shits and giggles, peeps. Dirk's a fine player and he's gotten a lot out of his abilities. He's not the next Larry Bird or anything, but...

Blogger Sturla said...
Has there ever been a next [insert superstar name here]??

For an extra dose of bawfulness: Gilbert Arenas is throwing the Wizards under a bus for, of all things, letting him do what he wants.

While Arenas praised Grover for saving his career, he blamed the Wizards for giving him too much control over his failed comebacks from surgery the past two seasons.

"If you have a kid that loves basketball, that eats, sleeps, drinks and thinks basketball and all he knows is basketball and he gets hurt and he's your franchise player, you need to hold him back from himself," Arenas told the newspaper. "If I'm saying I feel good and you know it's supposed to take six months, instead of letting me at four months run ... they should have held me back. Rather than saying, 'Let's let this guy do what he wants and use him to sell tickets' -- sometimes you have to protect players from themselves. I don't feel like I got that type of protection. But, I don't judge them for that. Some things just happen. I told them I felt OK because I wanted to play, and they did what they did."


Clearly when he posts in his blog about how he'll be ready to play, it was actually the Wizards employing their Merlin Jedi mind tricks learned from Tim Duncan. I'm sure Ernie Grunfeld isn't feeling very gay for Gilbert Arenas right now.
