New top commentary moment of the year: one of the old Nuggets dudes tunelessly intoning “The Baby Bunch, the Baby Bunch” in a crude imitation of the “Brady Bunch” theme song. One of the most exciting sequences of Denver’s year so far, the crowd is hyped, the players are hyped, everybody is hyped, and you have to mess it up with that?
I guess “The Baby Bunch” is the Nuggets’ young players taken as a whole? If so, that’s pretty corny. Like really corny. The kind of thing where you just stop saying it and hope no one remembers that you ever did.
Likewise with Jamal Murray’s “Blue Arrow” nickname. I know, I know, this is an older creation dating back to his college days, but still. Just ditch it. Forget about it. It sucks. Blue isn’t an intimidating color at all. And “arrow”? Lamest possible weapon imagery.
I think I’m going to call him “Murder” for now. As in “Murder murdered the Bulls to the tune of 24 points, including a dunk where they didn’t even try to defend.”
