Kobe Bryant > Michael Jordan. #FASHION
Jordan’s skills as an NBA executive>His fashion sense…. AND THAT’S SAYING SOMETHING
”’I remember when he wasn’t our president, when I was a kid, when he’d just be walking down the street, a state senator. He was just always there. I didn’t appreciate it then. I was in high school and just wanted to see rappers.’”
-Derrick Rose in Leitch’s GQ piece.
This isn’t a political blog, but how many Presidents would walk around the South side of Chicago when they were Senator? None. That’s how many. ‘Bama is a mensch, and so is Rose for his self-aware comments about being a kid (apologies to my high school readers, but you’re still kids) and caring more about rappers than Senators. I wish more adults admitted to this like Rose.
Rose has had a tough week, but his interview with Mr. Leitch makes it impossible not to root for him. He’s just a humble, solid guy that wants to win. I hope the Jordan comparisons don’t have NBA heads frothing at the mouth because he’s a joy to behold on and off the court, and its inevitable when you’re playing in Chicago.

Congratulations to Anthony Davis and the Kentucky Wildcats.

Hi. I just released my brand new standup special “Dangerously Delicious.” You can download/stream it at azizansari.com for only $5. The above clip is a free preview. Thanks.
What is this?
I did a standup tour called Dangerously Delicious. Then I filmed it at the Warner Theatre in DC in June of 2011. I paid for the production myself and wanted to release it online. While I was trying to figure out the proper method of release, my friend and hilarious comedian Louis CK did his whole thing and it seemed to me that people really liked that model, so that was the route I decided to go.
Is the same material on your new tour?
No. The material on my upcoming Buried Alive tour is totally different. None of this material was on Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening (my last special) either.
I tried to get it, but something happened and its not working?
Don’t worry. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet at @azizsupport and someone will help you.
Do you like fish tacos?
Of course I do!
Funniest man alive
Danilo Gallinari’s behind-the-back assist.
I’ve seen multiple places call this the assist of the year. I’m still going with Rondo. Although these are both great passes the Gallinari pass isn’t even close to as spectacular as the Rondo pass in my opinion.
