Jeff Van Gundy was in fine form broadcasting Game 3 last night, first botching Nick Lachey's name (Lach-ee), misidentifying his girlfriend (and personal crush) as Alyssa Milano instead of Vanessa Minnillo, who is the girl Lachey is actually kicking it with, brah.

These are all venal errors when compared to his cluelessness when it comes to barbershops. The latter portion of the clip highlights JVG quipping how quickly he can gets in and out of what he very ruggedly calls boutiques. Possibly because he has no hair. What preceded that moment was an argument with Mark Jackson that sets new national standards of whiteness. Mark Jackson mentioned how the game would be discussed in the barbershop and Van Gundy heatedly claimed people don't talk to each other in barbershops. Which is true if you're white. In response to that, Jackson bludgeoned him with a copy of that Ice Cube movie where people talk for a long time about controversial subjects in a barbershop. I forget the name. I think it was Barberblack or something. Being white like Van Gundy limits my awareness of such things.
