NBA ‘In Da Club’ Round-upAugust 29th, 2007 by Damon
Time for some NBA gossip…
Seen at Las Vegas’ Body English in the Hard Rock Cafe: Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony, Leandro Barbosa, Deron Williams, and…Rick Mahorn? (Clubgoer Mateo says the gentleman in the Ed Hardy hat was a dead ringer for the former Bad Boy and current Detroit Shock assistant coach.) When the spotlight shone on the Global Icon (pictured below), “all the [women] turned towards him and started aggressively gyrating their bodies.”
Throwin’ up the diamond, the Global Icon signals that he’ll be taking Kanye’s side in the approaching 9/11 sales battle. “If 50 wins, I’m not passing the ball to Eric Snow all year. Actually, I’m not passing him the ball no matter what.”
Meanwhile, in Seattle, Vlad Radmanovic was seen closing down Belltown’s Amber. Our source Lorraine, who was at the club as part of a bachelorette party, said she was approached by the Lakers/X-games star, who sported what she described as “1980s Eastern Bloc chic” attire and an eerily deep, breathy, Serbo-Croat drawl. Their interaction went as follows:
Vlad approaches bachelorette party and sits down next to Lorraine.
Vlad: Hi. What’s your name?
Lorraine: Lorraine. What’s your name?
Vlad: Vladimir. Where do you live?
Lorraine: Around here.
Vlad: Where do you live?
Lorraine: Close by. Where do you live?
Vlad: My friends ditched me.
Lorraine: Oh, bummer.
(Vlad typing on his blackberry ):
Lorraine: Who are you calling?
Vlad: My lawyer.
(Vlad gets up)
Vlad: How tall are you?
Lorraine (a little taken aback): 5′7″ or 5′8″.
Vlad (bends over and pulls up her pant leg to check her heels.): How tall are you?
Lorraine: 5′7″ or 5′8″, but I have tall heels on. How tall are you?
(Vlad pulls up her pant leg again to look at her heels. He then does the same with Bachelorette.)
Vlad (to Bachelorette): How tall are you?
Bachelorette: 5′ 10″. How tall are you?
(Vlad stands in silence for a little bit)
Bachelorette: What do you do?
(Vlad shrugs, smiles, looks around club.)
Lorraine: You must play sports.
(Vlad shrugs and smiles again. The Club turns the lights on, signaling closing time.)
It’s not a roller coaster, Vlad; you don’t gotta lie about your height.
Too bad Lorraine didn’t have the opportunity to dance with Vlad, cuz he can get down:
That’s all the NBA gossip for now, folks. Rest assured I’ll keep you posted on any hot new scoop
