There might be 30 wolves fans watching this game

Yeah-
it’s that time of year.

Who would win a basketball game?
A team of all fascist dictators versus a team of Disney princesses?
Also instead of a ball they’re using a human baby

Posted by princelyfrank on Apr 7, 2017 | 8:26 PM

Wait, which team would the princesses play for
considering they qualify for both?

Posted by AverageJer on Apr 7, 2017 | 8:30 PM

Which princess is most fascist?
I always felt the Lion King was pro-fascist propaganda

Posted by princelyfrank on Apr 7, 2017 | 8:36 PM

I can see that.
I have weird political issues with many of the princesses but I guess I hadn’t thought about it in terms of fascisim.
Does the Little Mermaid count as a princess because what’s up with her willingness to mutilate her body and silence her own voice because she saw a cute boy? Also, I guess you could say her father is a totalitarian dictator.

Posted by AverageJer on Apr 7, 2017 | 8:44 PM

Yeah Little Mermaid is sort of a weird anti-feminist thing
She really has no agency after making that one horrible decision, then the rest of the story just sort of happens to her, it’s pretty jarring watching it in a modern context
Great songs, though, my favorite Disney music from a musical standpoint

Posted by princelyfrank on Apr 7, 2017 | 8:47 PM

I’m weirdly fond of the songs in Tangled
but it’s Jungle Book going away when it comes to favorite disney music. That said, the song about stuff being great is a pretty good song.

Posted by AverageJer on Apr 7, 2017 | 8:51 PM

I only saw Tangled once
and don’t really remember the songs at all, but I liked the movie. That could probably stand a rewatch

But for the sake of argument, the two starting fives are as such:
Dictators
PG: Hitler
SG: Kim Jong Un
SF: Franco
PF: Mussolini
C: Pinochet

Princesses
PG: Mulan
SG: Belle
SF: Elsa
PF: Jasmine
C: Pocahontas

And the baby is the Lindberg baby while still alive
Posted by princelyfrank on Apr 7, 2017 | 8:42 PM

no pol pot?
Or is he the sixth man?

Posted by Joel Hernandez on Apr 7, 2017 | 8:42 PM

Instant offense
Posted by princelyfrank on Apr 7, 2017 | 8:43 PM

Dictators win
because the princesses SF shooting is pretty cold…

Posted by AverageJer on Apr 7, 2017 | 8:46 PM

but think about how well she can ICE her opponents
Posted by princelyfrank on Apr 7, 2017 | 8:47 PM

ice princess
good point.

Posted by AverageJer on Apr 7, 2017 | 8:49 PM

can she defend up a position?
Dictators live on the Hitler/Mussolini pick and roll.

Posted by Mattsteg on Apr 7, 2017 | 10:27 PM

Since nobody is here I can say whatever I want
Let’s go Blazers!

Posted by Joel Hernandez on Apr 7, 2017 | 8:53 PM

What a flop
Gobert = flopper

Posted by princelyfrank on Apr 7, 2017 | 8:54 PM

Why is Wiggins shooting long 2s
Posted by Joel Hernandez on Apr 7, 2017 | 9:41 PM

Why did Ricky shoot that 2
Posted by Joel Hernandez on Apr 7, 2017 | 9:44 PM

Utah players not named Rodney are 13-15 from three.
wtf

Posted by Caliwolf on Apr 7, 2017 | 9:51 PM

Utah fans are so shitty they boo calls that go in their favor.
Posted by Caliwolf on Apr 7, 2017 | 10:03 PM

Is ingles a point guard?
Posted by eshold on Apr 7, 2017 | 10:15 PM

Hayward is impressive
Posted by eshold on Apr 7, 2017 | 10:19 PM

How was that a foul for Hayward
but no call for Wiggins at the other end the play before?

Posted by princelyfrank on Apr 7, 2017 | 10:20 PM

The Utah GM just complained that Utah is the victim of biased officiating.
Not kidding.
Worst crowd in sports.
Dumbest fans in sports.

Posted by Caliwolf on Apr 7, 2017 | 10:24 PM

Another Wolves game where their defense makes me want to drink bleach
