Legendary actor/Afro Samurai/Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D./Jedi Samuel L. Jackson handled the player introductions for last night’s New Orleans Hornets versus Los Angeles Clippers game, and while it wasn’t quite as good as Will Ferrell announcing that Jarrett Jack was leaving basketball to become a rodeo clown, it was still pretty great.
The highlight, of course, is Jackson changing up his “great vengeance and furious anger” monologue from Pulp Fiction to make it about the Hornets lying their vengeance upon thee. He should’ve taken it all the way and repeatedly asked Blake Griffin what Marsellus Wallace looks like. I guess my only real complaint is that he wasn’t unexpectedly eaten by a shark in the middle of it.
The Hornets and the Minnesota Timberwolves have really emerged as leaders in NBA new media this season. They should throw in together and make dumb viral videos introduced by celebrities. It’d be just like Funny or Die!
