Who's Number One?

ElDiabloGrande and Tha Bul Bubak were in attendance during the Sixers rout of the Bulls last night. During lulls in the action, a.k.a. every time Joakim Noah touched the ball, we got to talking about the best halftime shows around the NBA. The following is a list of the best there is, was, and ever will be.

As a young Bubak I was certain that one day I would grow to be a big athletic freak who would be dunking with regularity. Alas, I have been the same height since I was 12 so those hopes were dashed early on.(I have also gained about 130ish lbs since I was twelve, this doesn't help with my vertical leap.) It was my yearning to be an athletic freak and every mans yearning to slam dunk a basketball that led to rise of the first halftime performer on our list:

The Bud Light Daredevils: The Bud Light Daredevils were formed in 1983 and travelled worldwide until 1998. You must understand that these trampoline doting, high flying, slam dunkers came about in an era before every mascot and dancer out there was dunking off trampolines. Nothing beat going to a live game as kid...except going to a live game and seeing three to four grown men doing crazy acrobatics finished by slamming a round ball made of leather through a giant O.

Acrobazia: One of the all time greats. These two men made being gay cool...for the 8 minutes they were doing their thang at center court. What can be said about these men that hasn't already been said about my body, they are strong and attractive. Without further ado, I present you with ACROBAZIA!

Krystal Liu: You might know Krystal as the Chinese bowl flipper, to me she will always be more than that, to me she is the Chinese Bowl Flipper on a Unicycle. That's right people, not only does she ride on a ten foot unicycle, she does it with one foot while at the same time balancing bowls on her other foot that she will flip onto her head. Sounds ridiculous , outlandish and unbelievable right? Well believe it sister!


  1. Krystal Liu is the best thing to happen to the Nuh Buh since Sammy D deigned to grace the league with his graceful presence. Though Giuls and Eric dressing up as Acrobazia at Bubak's bachelor party may come a close second.

  2. Need I remind you when local special olympians play a game at halftime and inevitably one of them takes the ball the wrong way towards the wrong bucket and spends ten minutes missing layups while the rest of his team either fails to get his attention or is distracted by ice cream cones in the second row? that is entertainment, pure gold.
