Here’s another random record that Wilt Chamberlain holds that you didn’t know Wilt Chamberlain holds: Best commercial about constipation that stars a player’s mother. And ironically enough, he also holds the record for worst commercial about constipation that stars a player’s mother, both for this very ad.
Moral of the story? Wilt Chamberlain holds almost every NBA record. Second moral, however — we need a new laxatives commercial. Dwight “Farts” Howard seems like a perfect candidate. Someone get him on the phone.
On Tuesday’s live episode of The Starters, the guys discuss the Bulls-Pacers rivalry, the possible return of Derrick Rose, Chris Bosh’s game-saving block, KD’s streak, and whether Gregg Popovich is, in fact, a wizard. (Austin Daye had 22 points!) That, plus an interview with Steph Curry, Paul George’s leather look, and whether or not Leigh burglarized Swaggy P’s house.
Shoutout: 31 points on 19 shots for James Harden, who went for 17 in the second half of a very solid win over the Bobbercats. There were some other really good lines last night, but they came against the likes of the Bucks, Jazz and Nuggets so they don’t really count.
Not so much: The 76ers lost again. That’s 25 straight, but the silver lining is that the Spurs left the game with a Popovich-best 14-game winning streak, so at least Brett Brown is looking out for his friends.
Hustlin’ hustlin’: Here’s a big play from last night’s Bulls win over the Pacers.
