Ugh, my cable connection is suddenly jacked up. Picture is freezing, audio cutting in and out, etc. So I call TWC, eventually get to a supervisor who starts with, "How are you today?" and I respond, "Well, the Lakers just fired Mike Brown so I'm doing pretty well." He starts laughing and we go through the whole deal with getting my signal fixed.
At the end, he says, "So, have the Lakers announced a replacement for Brown? What's going on?" Then I had to give him the full update. Poor guy was stuck at work and didn't hear the good news.
"Basketball reasons" is as believable coming from Mitch Kupchak as it was coming from David Stern. #IWantedPhil
