An Imaginary Conversation With Bill Laimbeer and Isiah Thomas
Bill: Look at us, Zeke. We’re bad dudes doing bad things. Hanging out in this bad ass log cabin.
Isiah: Wearing this bad ass fur coat.
Bill: Me and my extra blue bad boy jeans. The color is actually “bad ass blue”. Check the inseam.
Isiah: No thanks. Either way I can’t even tell cause I got my bad boy shades on.
Bill: Yep, we’re some bad boys.
Isiah: Bad bros 4 life!
Bill: Totally bad!
Isiah: The complete opposite of how bad we are would be like if you coached a WOMEN’S basketball league 10 years from now and then became an assistant to Kurt Rambis on a mediocre team!
Bill: Ha! Yeah it’d be like you 10 years from now, taking the place of Larry Bird as coach of a team he led to the finals…and then you not even making it past the first round the three seasons you’re there!
Isiah: Haha, yeah!
Bill: It’d be like you going to another equally coveted NBA franchise, except for a much longer period of time, then spending way too much money on all the wrong players…
Isiah: OK I get it Bill…
Bill: It’d be like you getting a sexual harassment lawsuit, then tieing that team’s franchise worst record EVER…
Isiah: Whoa, hey that’s a little specifi—
Bill: …and then getting fired that same season leaving you pretty much blackisted from the NBA!
Isiah: Heh. Wait…you don’t think that’ll really happen to either of us…do you?
Bill: Nah man, we’re bad boys! You’re Mike Lowerrrrry!
Isiah: Wait this is the 80’s, who’s Mike Lowery?
