    Default kwame in indy

    i just read over on indystar that someone saw kwame at the Fever game tonight. evidently someone tried to interview him and denied/couldnt accept. what does this mean? is it true? i dont know. i sure hope so tho. cuz, having kwame on the team would be just one more reason to be a pacer fan (not like i needed one) cuz kwame went to my hs and his younger brother was a friend of mine in elementary/middle school. i also had the same 4th grade teacher as kwame. i guess that makes me part of his entourage or something.

    Haha...that's a nervous laugh...
    I'm struggling to find another reason why he was in Indiana at a WNBA game.

    In the research process, I found this tid-bit. Enjoy:

    The "Cake Incident" (from wikipedia)
    According to a police report, on the night of Saturday, January 13, 2007, Kwame Brown was accused by a man of throwing a cake at him. The man said that as he was carrying the 2 x 2 foot chocolate cake down the street in Hermosa Beach, California, he spotted Brown's Lakers teammate Ronny Turiaf who agreed to pose for a photograph with him. The Lakers had been out celebrating Turiaf's birthday when Brown then arrived on the scene, who grabbed away the cake and threw it back at the man. The man offered no reason for the cake throw in the report. It was said Brown was actually attempting to throw it at Turiaf as a joke, believing the cake belonged to him, but missed. The Lakers had been out celebrating Ronny's birthday as well.They then dispersed, with Brown departing in a limousine. A "grand theft of a person" case was presented by detectives to the city attorney's office,but Brown was not prosecuted. Brown later compensated the man by buying him dinner at the Arena Club at the Staples Center.

    Maybe he's dating one of the players on one of the teams.

    Kwame at a WNBA game? What's strange about that?

    Just kidding. I actually like Kwame a lot more than his detractors. In fact I'd say I'm a fan. Plus didn't he say he is a huge fan of JO, or something?

    That Kwame-BigDawg44 connection is pretty sweet too. I hope he becomes a Pacer, because that will mean Bynum is one too.

    Or actually I hope he doesn't become a Pacer, because then JO won't be.



    Can we trade for Bynum w/o trading JO?

    He could have just Better Basketball: Post Moves. It features JO and Tamika Catchings.

    Yeah, I actually think I'm a fan too. I rocked with him and Darko as my big men in NBA LIVE '06 (Granted, they didn't really need to do much with my T-Mac/Arenas/Pierce backcourt)...but I also fear the onset of the post-JO era. The post-Reggie era has been nothing but heartache.

    Could be. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    That is strange that he would be here in Indy. That does make me wonder. But is it "legal" for the Pacers and Kwami to meet - isn't that tampering.

    I'm not going to read too much into it right now

    That's odd.
    My mom was watching the Fever game on TV, and i wasen't paying much attention. But she said that she saw a guy somewhere behind the Fever bench that looked ALOT like Jermaine. She swears it was Jermaine. But that's another story haha.

    About the Kwame thing, i don't know why he would be there.

    Now I have on idea why he would be here. But keep in mind his excuse could be the Black Expo kicked of today through next week. A number of Celebs like the cast of The Wire etc.. are going to be here for one there is going to be a celeb basketball game. Reggie Wayne Bob Sanders locally etc.. Maybe he has some friends from near here coming in town for that and that's all it is.
    Or that at least could be a convenient alibi

    I wouldn't think it would be tampering if L.A. approved of a meet. It may be so that the team and player can get comfortable with the trade, although since he is on his last year I don't know why it would matter.

    Actually that may concern me more, God what if they intend to trade for him and then re-sign him?

    I don't know, guys. It sounds like another one of "those" stories to me. The OP says an "old roommate" of his "works stats" at the balls games and told him KB was there.

    Even if Brown wouldn't allow an interview, don't you think one of the stations covering the game would have at least a camera shot of him as part of their report?

    If he was dressed as an empty green seat, I saw him as I was flipping through the channels.

    Anyway, the guy that posted it has like 300 posts, but I didn't research what he has been posting.

    I would just think someone would notice a 6'11" guy wondering around.

    If you put any stock into the ugly MJ remarks made about Kwame, perhaps he was there for a tryout. But IF it really was Kwame, why would he be appearing at such a public function given the tampering implications?

    maybe a deal is done and they have to wait for a player to be available to be traded, Luke Walton who just signed. JC-Crittenden, I'm calling him JC since he is seen as the second coming by some Laker fans, who was just drafted. Isn't there a waiting period on newly signed and/or draft picks before you trade them.

    How funny would it be if JC ends up a Pacer and to see how AWESOME/Baron Davis/Chauncy Billips/second scoring option like he is then.

    I thought I'd just throw that random completely made up speculation into the fray.
