Moments in Curious Basketball Analogies

Posted By on Wed, Sep 23, 2009 at 2:16 PM

From an editorial in the Arenac Independent from Michigan:

On the basketball court, President Obama, for a man in his mid-40’s, moves pretty well.

Kind of like a seasoned point guard, Jason Kidd, for example.

But when it comes to executing his executive order on closing Guantanamo Bay, this guy is more like Zydrunas Ilgauskas, the Cleveland Cavaliers center who suffers from chronic swollen ankles and sensitive knees.

That’s how it feels ever since we first got word that the Standish Maximum Correctional Facility was being looked at as a possible federal detention center to hold suspected terrorists currently housed in Guantanamo Bay.

Really? You go with Z as your go-to big, slow NBA center guy when writing an editorial that will be read by a bunch of people who may or may not care or know about basketball?
