Hello 2017! We made it!!! The Replay is back in the closet with a New Year’s special. As we all know, 2016 was a trying year for all but we wanted to keep our reflections positive. Therefore, we discussed the things we were most grateful for in 2016. Al reminded us to all appreciate the fabulous Summer of Melo while El gave J.R. Smith yet another shoutout for his 48 shirtless post championship. We also took a moment to applaud the surge in NBA veteran social media that 2016 brought… #blessup4tic-pix.
Keeping the glass half full theme, we then went through what we are most excited for in 2017 and in some cases, our DREAM scenarios for 2017. All Star Weekend in New Orleans is extremely high on the list for obvious fashion and Instagram Live reasons and a potential Russ KD matchup in the playoffs was predicted. Al looks forward to hearing more social commentary from our man Kareem, who in case you missed it has an IMPRESSIVE knowledge of the Bachelor and strangely of condoms.
In sum, Kareem is the man and the new mantra for 2017 is to Dream Kareem (or something like that). El in keeping with the K theme wrestles with question of who will make up the next Kardashian NBA couple–Kristaps, Karl-Anthony, Kyrie. The possibilities are endless!
Lastly, we take you a little game of social media guess who. We don’t want to give too much away but you will learn 1) that Dirk Nowitzki secretly dominates Twitter trolls 2) Barbara Bush has an NBA bestie and 3) Al is still obsessed with Ray Westbrook.
Please enjoy and Happy New Year!!!
