Ep. 539: Amare’s Perfect Storm

On today’s show, Skeets and Tas tell Amar’e Stoudemire he’d be a freakin’ retar— um, idiot to not opt of his final year $17.7 million contract. That, plus a surprisingly close Suns-Bulls game, a mini Melas Raptors rant and a second call for your new Rodrique Beaubois nicknames. Get ‘em in, friends: 1-888-TBJ-4377. Cheers.

  1. Loved the shirt yesterday J.E., roosters get too much attention anyways.

    Wrote a new bit – baldingspalding.blogspot.com

  2. Don’t feel bad about ripping the Raps, I think we all love them/hate them. Great job on Court Surfing last night, you seemed really relaxed and more Jones-like than ever.

  3. Love the hate yall are showing for the raptors, squeezing in little jabs whenever you can – it makes for a funny show. Friday’s show was especially awesome with Skeets repeating “a franchise player” even after the break. Note to your bosses: one of the best TBJ shows was produced while being hung over.

    Tas – has anyone ever called you “The Canadian Michael Jordan of Turkey”? That’s one helluva nickname if you ask me. You saw it here first… on thescore.com.

    I’m guessing the tbj video that’s coming later today will have something to do with Hedo’s recent bust… and why he didn’t identify himself as Tas.

  4. They have to move you to the big-people table on CS. ESPECIALLY when there is just one host. I can see 4 dudes up there getting crazy, but a three man booth is more than OK.

    And given that you two allow each other to make and finish points respectfully, there wouldnt be a problem.

    Time for a petition??

  5. If Amare opts out, I say he goes to the Nets. And if the Nets get John Wall, with Amare, they’re making the playoffs in the East in the same year. They already shouldn’t be that bad, but they’ll be lock playoff team with Amare.

  6. Blatche deserves some love, and Flip isn’t nearly as awful as Woj makes him out to be. That bench situation was far more complex than Woj suggested with that opportunistic, bullshit column he wrote slamming the Wizards.

    Grumble grumble.

  7. Why do you wanna give Rodrigue Beaubois a nickname? His name is perfect already. It’s more fun saying his name than any other nickname anyone give him.

  8. I agree with Mrballer, Beabois does not need a nickname – his name is already perfect. Although, Quick Draw Beaubois was very good. If you watch the Cavs game tonight keep an eye on Mo Williams, he has been playing poor as of late and can’t seem to adjust as the third scoring option (after LeBron and Jamison obvi). Especially the last three games, I think it will be a good game tonight, will be interesting to see how Z will handle Bogut.

    Skeets, get back to me on the shirts! I asked you on Twitter but direct message wasn’t working.

  9. dear guys,

    if you check the phone voicemail, and someone leaves a pretty good beaubois nickname and did not leave a name — it was me. unless, of course, the nickname sucked . . . then it was someone else . . .

  10. Beaubois should be called R and B. Or Rhythm and Beau

  11. Shout out to your show seeming to smooth out. TBJ preseason is over and we’re back to game time here. Great job guys!

  12. My proposal for Beaubois´ nickname is the mixture of Rodrigue Beaubois and the chewing gum Hubba Bubba. The result is “Hubba Beaubois”. I know it makes no sense, but it sounds funny and it`s hard to pronounce.

  13. skeets’ outro roll failure was perfect.

  14. I Amare should test the market to see how much these GM’s will pay him, he will be crazy not too. By the way I think Amare is better then Gasol so he should demand around the same amount of chips!
