vs. DET: Opponent Game Thread Highlights

March 13, 2012
tags: ,

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Detroit Bad Boys.

Quick note: Detroit Bad Boys gave birth to the Opponent Game Thread. I don’t remember why I was reading their game thread that day back in ’08, but it was so amusing* that it made me start reading other teams’ game threads. So big props to them.

*The comment that started it all for me was posted right after Kyle Korver checked into the game: “Who is that devastatingly handsome man who just checked in for the Jazz? I’m a straight man, but my god he is beautiful.”

Any time I think of Utah
I think of that Mormon girl Julie from The Real World circa 2000.
What a free spirit. Just like Jerry Sloan.

The Jazz look terrible playing transition defense early.

if you were cheering them on, what phrase might you use to cheer them on?
by Mike Payne on Mar 12, 2012 9:27 PM EDT

I’d guess I’d have to go with
Go shitty team, go.

J[onas] J[erebko] has some of the ugliest moves in the world.
I feel like if I had been his height, I would have been the exact same type of NBA player as him…minus the soccer skills.

Haha, right. JJ looks far from graceful whenever driving to the hoop.
by Kruza on Mar 12, 2012 9:47 PM EDT

I think its because he’s so beautiful.
by The Boourns on Mar 12, 2012 9:48 PM EDT

Can’t be perfect I guess
But he’s as close as it gets

Keep driving Stuck

The Jazz have no answer for him.
by Kruza on Mar 12, 2012 10:03 PM EDT

Damn
Jefferson is killing us
by JWurm on Mar 12, 2012 10:24 PM EDT

Where did Rodney get that decent jumper from?
by madpoopz on Mar 12, 2012 10:27 PM EDT

I don’t know. I’m confused
by Kriz on Mar 12, 2012 10:27 PM EDT

Jazz Nation, isn’t it awesome to know that the Stuckey we saw killing us is not the Stuckey the Pistons see every night?

More Stuckey jumpers!
by JWurm on Mar 12, 2012 10:27 PM EDT

Stuckey!
by curlyfries on Mar 12, 2012 10:27 PM EDT

Who is this Stuckey guy??
by Kriz on Mar 12, 2012 10:28 PM EDT

Stuckey breakin’ ankles
by curlyfries on Mar 12, 2012 10:29 PM EDT

wow
I don’t understand how stuckey became efficient all of a sudden

Jefferson going postal
by Vreeland2 on Mar 12, 2012 11:07 PM EDT

Because I like the DBB community and it is where the Opponent Game Thread was born, I am going to overlook the improper usage of the adjective “postal” on a player other than the Mailman.

Game ova

Oh, stop fouling, Detroit, this ain’t college
by Toledo Joe on Mar 12, 2012 11:24 PM EDT

Pretty annoying
Just let it end

    Love knowing how the opponent game thread started. It was a major part of why I enjoyed this blog in the very beginning.

    I appreciate you making sure that people know that when they refer to JJ that it is not THE J.J.
