Player of the D.A.Y.

Slow down!

By Sam Rubenstein

Getting this out of the way early today because I want to combine it with something funny. First of all the Player of the D.A.Y. is LeBron. Again. He was the invisible man for the first half of the year and now he’s picking up Player of the D.A.Y.s left and right. He’s on a Baron Davis-esque tear. Last night the Pistons felt the pain of a fully operational LeBron James. Honorable mention to Shaquille O’Neal, who is back in a B.I.G. way.
Moving on…

There are times when NBA players are found with guns, and it becomes a big social indictment of the league and all that is wrong with the world and so on. Then there are times when it is someone that is not in the NBA that is found with a ridiculous amount of guns, and it reflects on them as an individual. This is one of those times to laugh at somebody who was driving around with a whole militia full of weaponry in his car. Check out this photo:

These are the property of John Popper from Blues Traveler. I am impressed. Didn’t know Blues Traveller was in the streets like that. Now I do. Obviously the pop-blues jam bands in this country are out of control and their commisioner needs to step in. We need columnists from coast to coast arguing with each other about the epidemic of pop-blues jam bands and their violence. Think of the children they influence! You are a role model John Popper! Don’t let me find out that your harmonica is secretly a spitball gun. By the way those are infared goggles next to that camo briefcase (camo briefcase?). Blues Traveller is ready for war. Now I know why they call him Popper. If he was in Vegas over All-Star, there would be no witnesses.

Alright, I’ve had my fun. Damn, that’s a lot of guns.

    four rifles, a shottie, 9!!?! pistolas, night vision goggles, and im guessing that bag is full of ammo. Popper indeed

    missed some good stuff from the link

    Officers searched the car with a police dog and found four rifles, nine handguns and a switchblade knife in hidden compartments, as well as a Taser, night vision goggles and a small amount of marijuana.

    Authorities, who seized the vehicle, said it was equipped with flashing emergency headlights, a siren and a public address system.

    and best of all:

    “I have big man boobs,” he said. “I got plastic surgery to chop them off. They took six pounds off of my chest. Yeah, I was like the Michelin man deflated.”

    And they were going 111 when pulled over. If you’ve got all that in your Mercedes SUV, wouldn’t you have your buddy drive somewhat near the speed limit? Goes to show you – say nope to dope and ugh to drugs, kids.

    That’s … amazing. Who would’ve thought a dude who plays harmonica would be supplying arms like that?

  • Co Co

    Za Za Pachullia for player of the D.A.Y. LeBron was too predictable! Spice it up a little Sam!!!

  • Gnar Gnar Duckets!

    I always thought that band sucked, not just sucked but sucked of epic proportions. I should watch what I say though huh?

  • Cheryl

    yeah, but he don’t have a Tubb 2000! you gotta know guns to know what i’m talking about… ;-)

  • Cheryl

    plus, c’mon guys, if that was a brotha we’d be seeing his momma crying on television saying “my baby didn’t deserve to die…”

  • Cheryl

    play wit it (that’s for you, DP)

  • Herfdawg

    A.I. for teh win!!! Andre Iguodala has been rockin lately. Look for him to keep putting up monster numbaz!! And I’m a Laker’s fan…

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    So THAT’S what happened to The Spin Doctors.

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com/ albie1kenobi

    i bet all country singers are packed like that. if the hiphop community and the countries got beef with each other, it’s gonna turn into a civil war for realz.

  • http://mybleedingfingertips.blogspot.com/ Max Airington

    First he loses all that weight, now these guns? Popper has a budding rap career, he just needs a name. Quarter Pound?

  • Cheryl

    Heavy Gunz

  • Reggie Evans

    With Four P.O.D.S., Lebron is now tied with Kobe and Amare Stoudemire for second place for Player of the Y.E.A.R.

  • DBlizzy!

    How about John “Pop-Your-Head-Off” Popper, that’d be a dope name.

    This has to be the best part: “Popper and Gourgeois were booked at the Adams County jail and RELEASED ON THEIR OWN RECOGNIZANCE”

    Imagine 50 Cent found with all those guns and drugs and then getting released on his own recognizance. F*ckouttahere!

  • Tim

    funnier is that all of those guns were probably purchased legally, you americans and your guns.

  • peteb80

    The T-Wolves should sign him. KG would love to have a guy like that on his team.

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com/ albie1kenobi

    peteb80, i assume you are referring to his awesome quote about guns and coupla grenades and ready for war, yes?
    and reggie evans, you seem to have a list of all the P.O.T.D. would you mind giving us that list some time? wonder if there’s some sort of fun statistic with it.

  • Clay

    Nice call Tim…
    How bout you guys reconsider the dumbass idea of selling guns at KMart or Wallmart or whateva the f*@$ you guys call your shopping malls.
    Make love, not war
    play wit it (Go DP, go!)

  • Daniel

    So what team is giving Popper a ten day try-out? If the worst cliche in sports, i.e. ‘someone I’d want to go to war with’ is at all true, then there should be a line beating down the door on the Patchuli Express tour bus.

  • James

    Everyone loves DP’s little saying dont they? Well heres a proposition – IF Dirk wins MVP, and IF (when?) the Mavs win it all, and Dirk will get the Finals MVP of course, I think he/she should start saying “Spiel Mit Es” after every post. I think thats it, but I havnt spoken German in a good few years.

  • bja

    When I saw Bowling for Columbine I just about fell out of my seat when I found out you can buy guns at K-Mart in US. In my home country (New Zealand) hand guns are illegal and even cops need special permission to carry a gun at work. Aren’t Americans lucky their ‘right’ to carry guns is protected by their wonderful constitution?

  • German Reignman

    “Spiel damit” would probably be correct, “Spiel mit es” is no correct german syntax … though since “play wit it” isn`t that correct either, it probably does not matter …
    Und ja, diese Saison könnte es wirklich sein, dass Dirk und die Mavs die Platte putzen und die Titel (Champ&MVP) holen …
    Spiel damit

  • Shiz

    Guns dont kill people, stupid muthafuckas wit guns kill people…

  • Shiz

    Im just surprised the League hasn’t figured out a way to suspend Kobe for this one…

  • Shiz

    I love his reasoning though…In the event of a natural disaster he didn’t wanna get left behind…Huh?! I mean I know shit got kinda ugly during the Katrina disaster but MOST rationally thinking people get canned goods, batteries, bottled water, maybe a generator and a 1st aid kit when preparing for natural disasters..not navy s.e.a.l. nightvision goggles and s.w.a.t. riot pumps, but then maybe thats just me…

  • Tariq

    Spiel, damn it. I’m sure Big Popper thought they were paintball guns. Simple misunderstanding.

  • mdshuai

    He must of been kind of curious why he always left the paintball fields without any of the buddies he showed up with…

  • Cheryl

    oh, they’re not supposed to die?

  • http://www.zio.ch Darksaber

    Damn he’s loaded. This was found in ONE car? Talk about overkill, what he was inspired by SOCOM, BLACK or maybe RAINBOW SIX. Get out of here, what a creep.
