Sure Shot

They say a picture’s worth 1,000 words. But you only need a couple to win.

What’s up with Samuel Dalembert this month? Is he adding an imaginary friend to his life? Showing love to the Golden Arches? We have no idea, but it’s times like this we regret the bad things we’ve said in the past about NBA Photos. Because without this picture, we couldn’t have such a good caption contest.

Whoever writes the funniest caption will win a dope prize from our vault and see their name in Trash Talk next issue.

Ronald and Samuel
