Dampier Promises to Deck TP

Taking a page from Kendrick Perkins’ book.

by Marcel Mutoni

When Game 3 of the Spurs/Mavs series tips off in Dallas tomorrow night, Eva Longoria might want to avert her eyes. Because her hubby is about to experience a world of hurt. Well, about as much “hurt” as Erick Dampier can possibly inflict.

Dampier, Erika to some, had some tough talk for the Dallas Morning News following Game 2:

As Erick Dampier, dressed in a natty creme-colored sportscoat with a brown shirt and matching tie, wiped the sweat from his brow he vowed to stop Parker’s personal layup drill.

“Parker got into the teeth of our defense and caused problems,” he said. “Every time he drives the lane, we have to put him on his back. The first foul has to tell him he’s in for a long night.

“My first foul Thursday night is going to put him on his back. I guarantee it.”

Well, this should certainly be interesting to watch.

Erick Dampier, tough guy. It’s a brave new world.

    Erick Dampier and Kendrick Perkins should start dating.

    Very good info, thanks for the post.

  • Ken

    Didn’t Shaq call her Ericka? I think that should stick.

    Shouldn’t these guys keep this quiet so that if they do take a hard shot at a guy it’s not thought as premeditated and could cost their teams big with a suspension? Oh wait……we’re talking about Perkins and Erica…..never mind.

  • Czar Ruke

    It will be a sad day for the NBA when Shaq retires.

  • German Reignman

    well, erica has to catch him first to foul him ….

  • ber

    Maybe Shaq will become a commentator.

    “My first foul Thursday night is going to put him on his back. I guarantee it.”

    “My first cross-over will put Eryka on the floor with both ankles broken, I Guarantee it” TP (not yet) answered…

    Just the day a hall of famer like Mt Mutombo retires because of a knee injury, we have to watch this kid run his mouth ?!?
    There is no justice

    First foul = flagrant 2. Thanks for the heads-up big guy!

    There might not be a more worthless center in the league…I’m just saying.

    As Napolean Dynamite would say, “Idiot!”

    TP should fly into him elbows and knees first. And i agree with Reign: he is too slow to even get to the help line in time. TP will get the layup, the mavs will inbound the ball, JKidd will be long past halfcourt, and THEN Damp will try to foul and fall flat on his back after swinging at air

  • Sarah

    If he does end up hurting Tony I hope Kurt Thomas clotheslines his ass.

  • http://www.broy7.com nate the great

    hahaha hisham that was golden man.
    you guys never kno, he can start winding up him swing before the game, and eventually get him in the 4th?
    or maybe he will attempt to foul TP on the first layup, and relize he missed but everyones gone because the games been over for 2 hours.

    Erika won’t do sh1t now. If he was really gonna do something he wouldn’t have said a word. And if he DOES try to dish out a cheap shot, I’m fairly confident that Killa Kurt, Udoka or Bowen will know just how to return the favor.

  • el-bot

    now THAT is a headline

  • Josh D

    This is gonna be just like Spurs Suns two years ago

  • http://nbacheapseats.blogspot.com Chendaddy

    The headline should be “Erick Dampier Promises to Try in a Basketball Game.” When Dirk Nowitzki has called you out as soft, you are Downy, son.

  • vtrobot

    @ Moobutter, Jerome James and Ed Curry are still in the league, yeah?

  • http://sfdjilf.com Jukai

    Josh D: So Tim Duncan and Kurt Thomas can get suspended for getting off the bench trying to help their friends?

  • http://www.twitter.com/TheDiesel Anton

    Parker surrenders before the foul.

  • NJ4Life

    Here’s hoping erika goes up for a layup and tony tackes him

  • mica

    Can Robert Horry come back for just one game and do his “steve nash move” on Eryka ?

  • underdog

    As long he has no real chance against TD or even Kurt Thomas or rest of the centers around the League, he has no other choice than be though with the guards. Erika, yes indeed.

    Eva will kick Erika’s azz

  • J

    Real easy to talk trash when you’re in street clothes, huh, Dampier?

  • niQ

    way to tell the world..

  • speedy

    If you talk the talk you gotta walk the walk.
    A lot of nonsens can be heard if you point a microphone at some players after a tough loss.

  • vtrobot

    Damp doesn’t like PGs because they often average more rebounds than he does (i.e. Rondo and probably several others). That is weak, tough guy.

  • http://slamonline.com PRIMUS

    I would call him a homo but that would be disrespectful to all gay men, and i’m no miss california! lol

  • futurematic

    I seriously need to see a Suns v Mavs series.

  • http://www.basketballjerseyworld.com nba-jersey-king

    Parker is that quick, Erica Dampier will take a swipe, miss and knock Dirk’s teeth out

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    The teeth of our defense… Erik Dampier is the oral equivielent of a set of dentures.
