Rnadom thought about last episode of Scorpion and the next
I really expected Walter to have some of his memories back when Paige shout at Sly to pull that lever and i was a bit dissapointed that it didn’t happen but i think it will happen in the next few episodes.I mean in the next episode as we saw from BTS photos/videos there is a discoball in the garage and maybe Walter and Paige will dance which will make Walter remember some things.Also tha fact that Doctor Rizzuto will be back in episode 3x19 makes me think that this time will be Walter/Paige who go to him and not Walt/Toby..Just thinking..
The NBA wanted its players to be clean cut, hair short and dressed conservatively. They frowned on flash…then the ABA came along and shook things up. That Red, White and Blue ball, brutha’s with big, BIG Fro’s, The 3 point shot, offense personified and be flashy as you wanna be! That was ABA ball.
It was an upstart league making noise, but holding on by a shoestring, and the NBA was trying it’s best to crush it. That is until the Virginia Squires drafted the Doctor! Everyone including the owners of the NBA teams stopped and took notice, simply because Doc could fly.
No-you think I’m playing, but on the real, Julius Erving…that mutha fuka could fly! Let me say this slow…no one, I repeat, NO ONE in the league-played like Dr J Back in the day. Brutha changed tha game.
In his five years in the ABA Doc won three scoring titles, three Most Valuable Player Awards and not one, but TWO championships with the Nets, (That’s right the Nets were originally a ABA team). The NBA caught wise and worked out a merger and yes Doc was one of the main reasons the leagues merged.
NBA baller’s said, “they, (ABA ballers) don’t play no D so Julius won’t be able to do here what he did over there…but they were wrong. The Doctor was unstoppable. At 6’ 6” 220lb Doc was fast. He had a nice midrange jumper and could take any and every defender that faced him to the hole. Let me say it correct, Dr J took two and three ma-fuka’s to the hole. He dunked on every big man in the league, (including Kareem). But he was NOT a dunk contest dunker. His best was always during actual games. Doc needed body’s flying at him, hands and arms swinging and reaching for the ball with a misguided hope of blocking his shot. Few did, Dr J had crazy ups and hang time, he switched hands, double and triple pumped and played the angles off the backboard better then any player I’ve ever seen.
Oh! And did I mention, that brutha Julius…. could fly.
I know, young heads gonna be taking about Jordan this and Jordan that…respect to Mike. I’m not one for comparisons, what I will tell you is this, there are some kats who are so nice with there’s, they transcend time and could play in any era. Dr J was one of em.
In his 11-year NBA career Dr J was an All-Star each season, the league’s Most Valuable Player in 1981 and a five-time member of the All-NBA First Team. He scored 30,026 points in his combined ABA and NBA career; only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Karl Malone and Michael Jordan have scored more points in the history of professional basketball.
1941. Right now, not very far from here, the German war machine is rolling up the map of Europe. Country after country, falling like dominoes. Nothing can stop it, nothing. Until one tiny, damp little island says “No. No, not here.” A mouse in front of a lion. You’re amazing, the lot of you. I don’t know what you did to Hitler, but you frighten the hell out of me, go on, do what you’ve got to do, save the world.
