Talking Benson: Lessons Learned in Vegas

This guy is a funny dude.

Here's are some of his highlights:

Of course I said I would and I followed her for a few steps, only to see her walk over to Jamie Foxx and give him a big hug and kiss. I walked back over to Coach and told him that I, in fact, could not do it. Another one of my teammates said he didn't care who she was talking to, and went over to her. Alas, Jamie's security did care. I'll stop that right there.

While Joey Graham is still on my mind, I learned that one elbow from him can make you hurt so badly that you don't even notice when you sprain your MCL.

On Jawai calling for the ball - he could've sounded like the trumpets of the Armageddon for all good it'd have done for him. Noone passes the ball to bigs in the summer leagues!

Especially not to bigs who have already got their contract situation taken care of

I must hear Jawai's voice soon though. A 7 foot, 300 pound, Australian Mickey Mouse? That's comedy gold!

You have heard the "fucking grasshopers" joke, right? Everything is bigger down under, even mice!
