There are so many jokes I could theoretically make combining Cedi Osman’s name (pronounced with a “J” sound) and Star Wars. A treasure trove of comedic puncraft. Problem is, I’ve never seen any of the Star Wars except for the first half of the first one, and I don’t remember even that little bit at all. All I know is that Jar Jar Binks is the most beloved character in the whole series, and that I hate sand.
So, if you were expecting some clever cultural references to go with your NBA highlights, I’m sorry. Though you should know by now that I only deal with the hardest-hitting well-reasoned basketball analysis. There is no room for humor in these descriptions. Only facts and the dissection of those facts.
Fact one: Osman scored 10 points tonight.
Fact two: 10 points is barely enough for highlights.
Fact three: Ersan Ilyasova is the “Turk Dirk”.
Fact four: Omer Asik is the “Turk Perk” as in Kendrick Perkins.
Fact five: I don’t have a good NBA comparison for Osman yet. Turk… doesn’t work.
