Found November 21, 2011 on NBA 24/7 365:

My all-time favorite basketball player turned 32 today!  In honor of his birthday let’s get some Stro Show appreciation going on here… 

That’s more like it! 

Based on the fact that you’re reading this right now I’m going to go ahead and assume you like NBA247365.COM.  So, whether you liked Stro or not, you’ve got to appreciate him at least one day a year because without Stro this blog probably doesn’t exist.  My NBA fanhood didn’t become a borderline-unhealthy obsession until I tuned in to a Rockets/Grizzlies game on TNT and watched Swift abuse Yao Ming.  I’ve been watching games nightly ever since.  Watching all those games without an equally-obsessed pal to discuss them with caused me to seek out NBA message boards, where I honed whatever writing skills I possess and became inspired to start this blog.

Every word you have ever and will ever read here tracks back to Stromile Swift, and more specifically, his dunk on Yao Ming.  So, happy birthday Stro!

^That’s a young version of me throwing up the Stro Show hand signal with Stromile himself before a Grizz/Celts game.
