    The Lakeshow hasn’t been in the finals in over a decade and of all the Lakeshow legends, A.C. Green was the best they could do.

  • Silky Slim

    Is A.C. Green really considered a Lakeshow legend? What’s the criteria for becoming a legend these days?

    I’ll pay someone to walk up to A.C. and give him a condom. Where is Bodie when you need him?

    Anyone found to be in possession of Dentyne, Trident, or Bubblicious will be escorted out by the venue by the ‘Orbit’ Security Squad

    I’d totally dominate everyone on the 7″ Dunk Contest. I got nicknames for my dunks like Chocalate Thunder.
