It's official, the NBA players have to much time on their hands.  This time last year they would be on the court five nights out of the week.  Now players are resorting to going on Sesame Street.  Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony join Grover this week on Sesame Street to explain what the word 'Compare' means.  The episode is set to air on Friday morning.  Don't be mad at me if I don't watch and let you know how it is. On a good note it looks like the owners and players are inching closer to a deal. Like this post? Check out our Home Page for more stories and follow us on Twitter

Carmelo Anthony & Amar'e Stoudamire ask Spencer Checketts to Compare if Things are the Same or if they Are Different

Editor's note: The 2011-12 NBA season was supposed to tip off Nov. 1. With no games to watch, will help fill the void by posting a dunk video every day until the lockout ends. Amar'e Stoudemire has been one of the most dominant forwards in the league since his rookie year in the 2002-03 season. During his rookie year with the Phoenix Suns, he showed his ability to...

Melo + STAT Explain ‘Compare’ On Sesame Street

With still no deal on the table compared to other leagues that enjoy their fans… Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire took some time out to visit Sesame Street (best place ever!) and explain the word “compare” to Grover. If the league still has no deal by next week, I’m all for a Grover / Big Bird versus Melo / STAT pay-per-view game. I hear Big Bird is a monster in the paint too.

So This is “Work” These Days Huh? NBA superstars Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudamire explain the word “compare” to Sesame Street’s Grover.  I have a feeling I can use that word quite easily right now.

The New Big Three

(Grover is Bosh.) One of my professional goals is to make an appearance on Sesame Street and teach Grover the difference between two obvious things he should’ve organically learned about at some point over the last forty years. Sadly there isn’t a lot of room for bloggers on children’s programming (“hey kids, this is the difference between CREDITING your source and claiming...
