For whatever reason, this playoffs seems to have been a bit of a coming out party for Jimmy Goldstein, despite the fact that he’s been sitting courtside at games across the country for years upon years. I don’t know how everyone missed a leather-clad Cryptkeeper for the past however many seasons, but more than ever, fans are noticing him. It’s been such a big year for him that he’s even got a pseudo-blog for GQ. That’s when you know you’ve made it.

In fact, Jimmy’s life — rich beyond belief with a secret fortune no one knows the origins of, traveling from city to city watching basketball, dating gorgeous models while looking like a human lizard — is so intriguing that even NBA players are jealous of him. From the San Antonio Express-News:

“I wish I could be like him,” Spurs player Stephen Jackson said. “I wish I could retire and just sit courtside and watch basketball every night.”

When a guy who has made $60 million in his career wants to leave it all behind to live your life, that’s when you know you’ve had a good life. Pretty strong endorsement for the Jimmy Goldstein Experience.

Now all of us need to do is find a way to get rich beyond our wildest dreams without anyone knowing how we did it, then we can make this a reality. That should be the easy part. Finding hundreds of leather fedoras will be the real challenge.

    I think the most impressive thing about Jimmy is that he’s kept his career / path to wealth somehow a mystery. I say TBJ does a “Top 10 Careers Jimmy Goldstein Might’ve Had” list and get to the bottom of this.

  5. He’s a true basketball nerd. I respect anyone with the balls (money helps too, but not required) to pursue their true passions.

  6. side boob is the best shit on earth.
