I Just Want To Congratulate Hubie Brown On Getting To An Age Where Blurting Out Things Like This Is Okay...
In fairness, if there is one way to give yourself some space driving to the hoop then it's by giving your defender a quick two-handed tug job. No one is going to continue playing diligent man-to-man 'D' after having one rubbed out. At the very least throwing a handy his opponent's way would have bought Kyrie Irving 10-15 minutes of going up against a vulnerable, exasperated defense. It is the playoffs after all. This is the time of year where you have to leave it all out on the floor, even if it makes the mop boy's job a living hell.
Honestly, I am just happy for Hubie Brown. All the 'Lifetime Achievement Awards' in the world mean nothing if you can't enjoy being the old man that accidentally blurts out blatantly sexual references on national television. Speaking for myself in the distance future, the only thing I want more then to call a near-miss a 'rim job' is the self awareness to immediately belly laugh at myself after I do. Saying inappropriate things is a a staple of the elderly male, but I just hope that 80 year old me is still cognizant enough to enjoy how awkward it is for mixed company. I appreciate Hubie Brown serving up some unintentional humor, but I pray - as professional as he is - that he can see the inherent hilarity in his commentary when the cameras turn off.
