I have no clue who Andy Martinez is or his buddies are but big-ups for mentioning GetGarnett.com to Dan Steinberg. Keep spreading the movement, guys.
Washington Post: I was hoping to talk to Awvee Storey last night for any number of reasons. To begin with, there was his jersey, which mistakenly read “Story” on the back. My old “Matt’s News” softball jersey read “Steinburg” on the back, but I figured the NBA employed better proofreaders than a slow-pitch softball league.
I also wanted to get Awvee’s feelings about his old wrestling-mate Gilbert Arenas’s “Takeover” season, and about his own career progress, after his D-League incident and all. He was certainly noticeable in yesterday’s win over the Sonics, going for 13 points, 6 rebounds and 9 fouls.
But I never got to talk with Awvee, due to multiple arena exits and the extreme rudeness of a Thomas & Mack Center employee who insisted that I could not possibly stand within 75 feet of a Summer League locker room. And so instead, I wandered back into the gym, where the shot-clock didn’t work and the PA announcer had to count down the seconds left to shoot the ball, where the Lakers were playing the Greg Oden-less Blazers, and I was left to do a story about the guy in the suit and shaved head carrying the sign pictured here.
He was holding it over his head and yelling in the general direction of either current GM Mitch Kupchak or the Lakers bench, depending on his mood. His friends were extremely happy about all this. Eventually, the game ops people showed Andy on the video board, and everyone in the arena cheered.
