A Viral Blow To Sebastian Telfair’s Comeback Campaign

Posted in Basketball at 11:48 am by

Free agent Sebastian Telfair recently told CBS Sports’ Ben Golliver that he hoped to sign with a championship contender when and it the NBA lockout concludes, to which Golliver inquired, what might the Coney Island product bring to a club with title aspirations? “I bring myself. I bring Sebastian Telfair,” was the not-at-all pretentious answer.

The 13th overall pick in the 2004 draft might also have added, “I bring a guy who can’t properly defend against a woman.”   As Ball Don’t Lie’s Kelly Dwyer points out, the woman in question, New York Liberty PG Cappie Poindexter is a 4-time WNBA All-Star, so it’s not as though Telfair just got lit up by Michelle Bachman.  However, given that he’s lobbying for a job, perhaps prospective NBA employers might wanna give Poindexter equal if not greater consideration?

    A jump shooter with no defensive skills whatsoever. Hmmm. Sounds like most guys in the NBA. If he learns how to flop he can probably start for most teams. I just hope the lockout lasts forever.
