Simulated Red Auerbach-vs- Kyrie Irving debate on changing NBA logo


Former-Celtic, Kyrie Irving is going all out to promote the late Kobe Bryant as the new NBA logo, replacing the current one represented by Jerry West. This debate, though never actually happening in reality, will be presented as though it did.

Red Auerbach: Kyrie, why are you campaigning to have Kobe Bryant as the next NBA logo. What's wrong with Jerry West.

Kyrie Irving: There's nothing wrong with Jerry West. I am talking about my generation. Kobe was drafted at 17 years old. He's MY generation. 

Red: Sounds like this is more about you than Kobe!

Kyrie: No, it's just that "this is the guy for us and the guy for me. He is my mentor and more than an inspiration. I took a lot of wisdom and knowledge from that guy and he is always around me and Gigi is always around me."

Red: I think you just supported my position. A lot of "I's", "my's" and "me's" in there.

Kyrie: Who would you want for the logo, Red?

Red: Russell - plain and simple. He changed the League in a positive way. Magic and Bird did the same. Who ever heard of a 6'9" point guard that could do what Magic did. And Bird was called The Great White Hope. Well, if the white race wanted a champion, they got one in Larry. And how about Jordan? Or Kareem? 

Kyrie: Red, you're getting away from my point. This is about me  - I mean - my generation. 

Red: I noticed in your interview, you called yourself one of the "Black Kings that built the league". Well, if you consider yourself one, then how about Russell, Magic, Jordan and Kareem - who all came before Bryant and made more of an impact. I never saw color in my guys. When I put Russ out there with Satch, Sam, KC and Willie, I never gave it a second thought. And if I put Havlicek and Siegfried on the floor as starters, I didn't think about that either. If a guy was purple, he would start if he was the right choice.

Kyrie: You're way off track, Red .....

Red: Damn it! The League doesn't need a specific player to represent it. You think Jerry West is going to mind his likeness disappearing from the logo? Guess again. West was one of the pioneers of the NBA, and he doesn't give a damn about being The Logo. If it needs to be a player, it should be Russell - you know the guy with 11 rings that is the main reason Jerry only has one. But the NBA doesn't need a specific player to represent it. If they want to change the logo, do so - but keep a player's likeness off of it.

Kyrie: Red, let me finish.

Red: No you're done. Goodbye.

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids. — Adrian Wo

Rick Barry belittling Bill Russell on TV revealed the real fool

 It happened on national TV during the 1981 NBA Finals . Two of the announcers were Rick Barry and Bill Russell . When asked who was in a photo passed to Barry, Rick responded, "I don't know. Looks like some fool over there (referring to Russ) with the watermelon grin on. Russell repeatedly indicated the photo was of KC Jones , but Barry would have none of it. Worth watching. Russ vs. Rick Barry! The "fool with the watermelon grin" wasn't Bill. It was Barry. Don't believe it was racial, but the two didn't get along. Russ was clearly pissed. Rick Barry - Watermelon Grin https://t.co/NrUSkzrwZH via @YouTube — Tom Lane (@CelticsSentinel) September 24, 2021 Bill responded with, "That was K. C. That wasn't me. That was K. C." Then Barry tried to pass the photo to Bill, and Russ wanted none of that either. "No. I don't want them" is how Russell responded, clearly pissed, but still maintaining that aura of class and composure. Alth
