Video: LaMarcus Aldridge and Robin Lopez are bad at singing, great at commercials

To be completely and totally honest, I’d be totally and completely honest with every single NBA player making some sort of local commercial like this. That way, not only does my job become very easy, we’d also have hours upon hours of hilarious footage like this to watch any time we want. Because believe me, once you’ve seen LaMarcus Aldridge and Robin Lopez butcher the McLoughlin auto mall’s theme song once, you’re going to want to dip back in for some more laughs. It’s that good.

NBA Happenings: Dec. 13, 2013

Shoutout: Dwight Howard went for 32 points and 17 rebounds last night, which is usually good enough to get a win and a fake internet award for the best line of the night. However, LaMarcus Aldridge went for 31 points, 25 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in the very same game, so he’s getting neither.


Not so much: Six of the 10 starters in last night’s Clippers-Nets game made two or fewer shots, with Jared Dudley leading the sad parade with a sterling 1-7 mark on the evening. He was so sick about his poor performance that he tweeted about it, which is how you know something is truly horrific.
