Pippen The Finnagler

Scottie Pippen in Finland to play two of what those funny people outside the U.S. call "matches" may seem random, odd, and/or insignificant. But basketball news is slow, so why not make a meal of this tasty morsel. By the way, in finding the news from Say Hey, I learned this is not the only blog supported by the invisible Finnish hand, and they write about The Finnagler (Petteri Koponen, if you happen to be new) a lot, and better. Well, let me know when you have the juice to get his side bar info-box thing on wikipedia edited to include things you made up. That's real juice, that's being a real Finnaglerphile. Getting your junk into that box is like getting your synapses of Brian Bosworth's full-length feature film "Stone Cold" added to THE BIBLE.

Anyways, Pippen will play these "matches" for a team located in Helsinki. Helsinki is only 20.3 "kilometers" (LOL, who still uses "kilometers"? That is so 80's) from Espoo, where none other than the Finnagler himself plays for the Tapiolan Honka, whom interestingly take the name from an ancient Battle-Axe culture phrase that roughly translates to "Honkeys."

Former Blazer Pippen so close to future Blazer Koponen. Like ships passing in the crisp Finnish night? Coincidence or fate? My dreams tonight will include a Miyagi-LaRusso relationship. Perhaps the stars have something special in mind for these two, which I mean in the most heterosexual way possible. Clearly, the gods always smile warmly to the Trailblazers.

Just wondering, J Brown, are you going to do a pre-season power ranking and, what do you think of AK 47's latest? Keep up the good work.

DQ, those ships could well wage a naval battle. If the Pippen GAMES do happen, one of them should be against Honka. Two years ago, when Rodman played one game for Torpan Pojat, it was against them. Ol' Dennis revealed a new side in his game by shooting 5/14 on THREE-POINTERS, but he could not run, jump or pick up a ball off the floor. I hope Pippen has a bit more left...

Blueforest, you just blew my mind.
