This story is from last week, but it’s one of those things that I feel like you need to know. Simply put, on his very first date with international rap sort-of-star Iggy Azalea, Nick Young went to Target before heading to dinner, just to walk around. They went because she asked, which is always a good reason to do something on a date, if you’re really trying to woo the asker.
And speaking of wooing the asker, here is a partial list of things I would buy from Target to show Iggy Azalea what I am in to and how swaggy I am.
– Bag of Sour Patch Kids.
– Bag of Lemonheads.
– King size sleeve of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
– Two gallon jug of skim milk.
– Bag of Archer Farms brand Black and White trail mix.
– DVD copy of “The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug.”
– 2L bottle of Diet Coke.
– 20 oz. bottle of Diet Coke (for the drive home).
– WoodWick candle, fireside scented.
I don’t know if that’s the kind of shopping list that would get me a second date with a rapper, but it’s pretty accurate since I’m a chill bro who likes to keep things cozy but hasn’t seen the second “Hobbit” yet because it was released during the NBA season. Though I guess she’s right — you can tell a lot about a person by what they purchase at Target. Everyone should take their first dates there.
On Thursday’s live episode of The Starters, the guys discuss Heat/Grizz, the Pacers’ B-Team, Russell Westbrook’s rebounding, Cats/Wiz, and Dorrell Wright’s game-winner in Portlandia. That, plus new player logos, historic playoff games, Mitch Kupchak, and a few NBA Craigslist ads.
I’m very happy to welcome another inductee to the Kyle Korver Hall of Fame for Embarrassing Defense, but I’m even happier that Rasual Butler here is striking the closest we’ve seen to a pure Korver pose while being terrified of a Khris Middleton drive to the hoop. All he needed was a happier grin and it would have been perfect. Better luck next time.
