Does Louisville Merit an NBA Team? Local Ad Agency Thinks So

Well, as a pro hoops fan, this is kinda fun. Never mind the fact that Sacramento is pretty much losing its Kings to Seattle , which we think was unjustly stripped of its Sonics to begin with. Current360, an interactive marketing agency based in Louisville and Fort Lauderdale, is making a play to bring an NBA team to the former city, crowdsourcing a handful of logos in the process in the hopes that commissioner David Stern and crew will make KY fans’ dreams come true via the Kentucky Colonels.

Perhaps inspired by the folks behind “Kentucky Kicks Ass” or more likely the spirited words of Forbes sports business writer Darren Heitner, who’s still tweeting about it as we speak, Current360 agrees that Louisville is the “ideal home for a relocating NBA team.” Besides the Kings, we’re not sure who else is contemplating a move, but that’s neither here nor there. Let’s just enjoy some of the submissions including a raccoon and what appears to be Hank Williams Jr. What say you, commissioner Stern?

Watch NBA Superstar Chris Paul Take a Sheet on Camera

This summer, NBA point guard Chris Paul became the league’s most sought-after player. After commissioner David Stern shockingly blocked a trade to the Lakers, Paul found himself in L.A. nonetheless, now starting for a young Clippers team. All this to say, it was only a matter of time before Paul ended up being bit by the movie bug, directing and starring in the above spot for Sheets Brand Energy Strips.

Paul joins of roster of celebrity endorsers including hoopsters LeBron James and Amar’e Stoudemire, and unintelligible rapper Pitbull. Sheets Brand Energy Strips are a curious product, ingested as one would ingest a tab of acid, and used as a substitute for other performance enhancers like energy drinks or steriods. Right now, Sheets Brand Energy Strips are taking to Facebook, asking users to create their own video ads for a contest judged by LeBron. Apparently, the video above is just Chris Paul doing his part.

So, athletic readers who regularly take part in strenuous activity, how do you “take a sheet?” Maybe you take a sheet in the alley outside of your office before work. Maybe you take a sheet after a big meal. Maybe you even take a sheet before you and your loved one get intimate. Whatever the case, visit Sheets’ Facebook page to tell other teenagers who think this pun is hilarious how it’s done.

With the NBA Lockout Looming, This is All We Have

Basically, it comes down to next Monday’s meeting between the NBAPA, the owners and commish David Stern (yes, it seems these meetings are proving to be increasingly useless) to see whether an actual season will happen, so, in the meantime, why don’t you NBA fans and gamers take solace with this spot for NBA2K12 from 72andSunny. Basically, it’s a follow-up to Jordan’s “Kiss my rings, biyatch” spot and asks fans, whether they be celebs like Drake and the dork from Dodgeball or your average joe, to profess what they think is the greatest NBA team ever. What say you, audience? Damn, this impending lockout irks us. Credits after the jump and, thanks to a tipster’s heads up, a Samuel L. Jackson-starring Nike spot that aired during the last NBA lockout in 1998.
