Drug Propaganda Thursday

The L.A. Lakers rap a very special anti-drug message.

Without checking stats, I'm guessing circa 1986.

Rambis rocks.

    Wow. We found something worse than this...

    (Wait 'til next year)

    I had no idea that James Worthy has such a deep voice.

  • ||

    I wonder how much of this was to satisfy their community service.

  • ||

    Watching Curt Rambis go coast to coast could make a grown man wet himself.

    It was like a purple and gold apocalypse.

    VM,

    I wish I could find a video of Sammy Davis, jr. singing "Shaft."

    cheetos make me poop

    White guys have no business rapping.

    VM,

    I did find this though:

    You can tell which players are high because they're the ones wearing sunglasses.

    By the way, did I catch a glimpse of the young Radley Balko in that crowd of kids?

  • VM||

    My eyes! my eyes! my ears! my ears!

    AWESOME!

    Kapitan Kirk singt! il chante! mon dieu!

    That video made me want to shoot heroin into my eye.

  • Grotius||

    Wow, Pat Riley rapping. Now that isn't something you see everday.

    VM,

    Are you a fan of Telly Savalas?:

    Cool. What fun! Thanks, Gro!

    Speaking of the NBA circa 1986, Dennis Johnson died.

    Holy crap! At 52!

    :-(

  • estocastic||

    TrickyVic: lol! I was thinking the same thing during the video.

  • ||

    How high was Kareem when they shot this? I heard he could give The Chief and Damon Stoudamire a run for their money in an all NBA smoke off.

    Drug Propaganda Thursday makes my life worth living.

    I regret I couldn't bear to watch the whole video, but I think the message is "just say no," not "criminalize consensual adult conduct." Is "just say no" supposed to be philisophically unsound from the libertarian perspective? Is it a non-libertarian-related-but-still-funny thing?

  • Timothy||

    VM: The Superbowl Shuffle ain't got nothing on Bust a Bucket!

  • ||

    "I wonder how much of this was to satisfy their community service."

    LOL

    "White guys have no business rapping."

    FOAD.

    "Is "just say no" supposed to be philisophically unsound from the libertarian perspective?"

    No, "just say no" is not incompatible with libertarianism, but that's not would one would be led to believe at this site.

  • VM||

    OMG. Timothy! Woah! You're right. But they had to go to drastic measures to cover all the paternity suits, apparently!

    I liked it when one of the players obviously didn't know the words, but was standing there, leaning into the mic. Kersey's part was actually good, when mixed up, that is :)

    Then it deteriorated into an old fashioned, out of the movie 9 to 5 "pot party".

    (Happy Friday)
