All Summer League Squad

Clear some room on the mantle, you have just been named All Summer League!!!

NBA.com:

First Team:Aaron Brooks – G, Houston Rockets -- so small that people could not see him

Al Thornton – F, Los Angeles Clippers -- has found his niche at age 30 (or whatever he is, it goes up every day) -- dunking on people in the summer league

Craig Smith – F, Minnesota Timberwolves -- when everyone who is good on the court is under 6'8", Craig Smith thrives

Javaris Crittenton – G, Los Angeles Lakers -- no idea who he is, but he is Kobe's backup, so he gets.......6 minutes a game??

Jose Juan Barea – G, Dallas Mavericks -- 3rd string Dallas point guard

Kevin Durant – F, Seattle SuperSonics -- had a ton of games with a box score line of like 3 for 200, 10 for 10 from the line. In the NBA season, refs aren't gonna give you 10 free throws if you are 3 for 200.

Kyle Lowry – G, Memphis Grizzlies -- Will they now cut Mike Conley?

Louis Williams – G, Philadelphia 76ers -- no idea

Marco Belinelli – G, Golden State Warriors -- the star of the Summer League, getting 37 in one game. This guy may actually be a real find.

Rodney Stuckey – G, Detroit Pistons -- gets to back up Rip Hamilton and play for a coach who never plays his bench......enjoy that 4 minutes a night you will get

Rudy Gay – F, Memphis Grizzlies -- I should hope so, he is a 40-game NBA starter

Randy Foye – G, Minnesota Timberwolves -- See Gay

Spencer Hawes – C, Sacramento Kings -- give the guy some credit (but see also Craig Smith comment)

Von Wafer – G, Denver Nuggets -- His D-League stats are also VERY impressive. Not impressive enough to up his NBA minutes played total above, say, 80, but still very impressive. Possibly his generation's Billy Ray Bates!!! (look that one up my friends......)

20-Year Old Woman Told She Was Too Sexy For Her Bus

Was the bus driver from "Right Said Fred"? http://www.reuters.com/article/oddlyEnoughNews/idUSL161097420070716?feedType=RSS

The best pic we have: http://www.bild.t-online.de/BTO/news/2007/07/16/schock-linienbus/frau-bu-sen,geo=2154796.html

How can you post the pic online and crop out the requisite evidence? This is like someone hiring Tommy Lee to do porn based upon a chest-up photo!
