Air Bud or Teen Wolf? (Gom Totemeal’s Baskety-bulb Report!)
Well the baskety-bulb season has arrived upon us in very much the same way a stationary cart of bulbs can get kicked over, causing them to roll quickly towards us. So why not take a look at the defending winners of the Big Trophy: The Miami Heat?
Every team likes bench players, but who between Teen Wolf and Air Bud would be the better bench player for the Miami Heat? Why, it’s Teen Wolf of course! First off, he plays the kind of fast-paced, high IQ basketball that the Miami Heat thrive on. He’s prone to taking bad shots, but I think there is enough team leadership to make him into a more disciplined distributor. The biggest downside is that on nights where he refuses to play as a werewolf, he’s simply not good enough to even consider putting on the floor. However, I think a guy like Norris Cole would be more than capable of patching up any holes left from a Teen Wolf absence.
As for Air Bud, I definitely respect his defense, but I think as a scorer, he relies too heavily upon the game’s intangibles. I’m also leery of the ongoing custody battle that exists between Air Bud’s new owner, Josh, and his previous owner, the alcoholic clown, Norman Snively. If Snively wins custody of the dog midseason, that would likely pull Air Bud out of the mix indefinitely and that’s a risk that no team can afford.
