You've Got Sixers Email, Vol. 8: Lloyd Puns

Someone's trying hard in summer league... - USA TODAY Sports

The gang discusses their favorite Lloyds, Jake tries way too hard to use Frank Ocean to make a larger point and Tanner makes an Eddie reference that didn't get nearly as much respect as it should have.

Michael Levin
Sup, guys.

Brandon Lee
Hey

Jake Pavorsky
Arnett has 15 and 9 today against Indiana. Threw Patrick Beverely back to Houston on a pick the other day. He's making me happy.

Michael Levin
I can't imagine Moultrie ever becomes a serviceable NBA big man. Maybe a forgettable backup. He just has too many holes in his game without enough things he's great at.
Definitely worth that a future first (or two seconds) for trading back into the 27th spot in the draft though! Nice work former front office!

Sean O'Connor
In the words of a person who once discussed his drug use in front of Congress, we're not here to talk about the past.

Tanner Steidel
Another acceptable former drug use quote: cocaine is a hell of a drug

Michael Levin
Another acceptable former drug use quote: "drugs."

Michael Baumann
Another acceptable Clockwork Orange quote: "Droogs"

Michael Levin
If the Sixers hire Lloyd Pierce, I'll have an awfully good time with some Lloyd-related Jjokes.

Michael Baumann
All I can think of is jokes about David Lloyd George

Rich Hoffmann
Lloyd Braun is what I keep coming back to.

Michael Levin
Lloyd Dobler, mostly. And the movie LLOYD, starring the "Don't you talk about my momma!" kid from Little Giants also known as the "I use these for acid indigestion" kid from Little Giants.

Tanner Steidel
I was thinkin Christopher Lloyd. But only the hobo version of him from Dennis The Menace

Dave Rueter
Graeme Lloyd, your residential LOOGY?

Michael Levin
Lloyd Christmas, even.

Tanner Steidel
Have we ruled out the Sixers going with the "Eddie" approach to coaching yet? Would love to see Whoopi on the sidelines. And Malik Sealy. Always Malik Sealy.

Jake Pavorsky
I honestly can't think of a single Lloyd. It's just a weird name. Lloyd. Lloyd. "Loy-duh".

Sean O'Connor
Lloyd's of London is my favorite. Fascinating company.

Michael Levin
I'd probably try to ram in some "Alloyed Wheels" jokes to little fanfare.

Michael Levin
Rich makes a valid point about Thorn leaving -- with no coach, what happens if they need advice? Where do they go from here? The Sixers are now truly lost.

Sean O'Connor
They could always go to that bus driiver they hired for Royce White that they might not use otherwise for advice.

Michael Levin
Bro, Chris Farley is dead.

Jake Pavorsky
Do Excel spreadsheets talk?

Michael Levin
So. Bynum.

Jake Pavorsky
I'm trying to find the most perfect Frank Ocean song to express my feelings. Yet to come across it.

Michael Baumann
Who's Frank Ocean? For that matter, who's Bynum? And most important, what are he and Anderson Varejao going to do to each other's hair?

Jake Pavorsky
[Note: Jake copy-and-pasted the lyrics to "Can't Be the Last Time" in their entirety. I am not going to reproduce them here]

Michael Baumann
Am I compiling this thing? If so, I'm not putting that entire song in there.

Jake Pavorsky
I don't know, but it captures the mood well.

Dave Rueter
I think Jake meant Billy Ocean.

Jake Pavorsky
I ABSOLUTELY DID NOT. Sheesh, y'all are some old farts.

Roy Burton
Don't worry... I got the reference, Pavarotti. And I'm the oldest one on this thread.
BTW, lyrics to that Frank Ocean song are here: http://rapgenius.com/Frank-ocean-cant-be-the-last-time-lyrics
And about that whole "Do Excel spreadsheets talk?" thing: Does no one remember Clippy? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Office_Assistant

Rich Hoffmann
Anyone want to rank the Ocean's movies? I don't understand why everyone hates on 12 so much. Like yeah, the other two are probably better, but the Night Fox dancing through the laser fields was pretty good, right?

Jake Pavorsky
11 was the best

Michael Levin
12 is infinitely better than 13. That thing just falls apart. 11 is pretty great fun. About as good as a blockbuster can be.

Roy Burton
Does 13 even count? Much like The Sandlot 2 and House Party 4, I refuse to acknowledge its existence.

Michael Levin
Moved into a new apartment. This one is much more conducive to blogging while pooping, so watch out, world.

Michael Baumann
What obscure former Sixer do you want back on the team for this upcoming 16-66 season?
I'll have Kenny Satterfield, please.

Dave Rueter
I think Tony Massenburg could help us on the defensive glass.

Roy Burton
Pepe Sanchez would be an ideal backup PG, but if I could only pick one guy, it would have to be Shavlik Randolph.

Michael Baumann
Sign Shavlik and Jason Collins, have a Bravo film crew follow them around. Ratings gold!

Michael Levin
I still have $20 riding on Deng Gai's upside, so I'll go with him.

Sean O'Connor
I'd prefer one of Zendon Hamilton or Amal McCaskill. But not both, since they might be the same person.

Jake Pavorsky
You guys ever see this? You can pay Zendon Hamilton $500 to play pool with you (for a maximum of 2 hours). http://www.thuzio.com/zendon-hamilton.html

Sean O'Connor
How much money can we pull together? I've got $17 in my wallet. Let's do this.

Michael Baumann
You're $3 away from being able to pop tags.

Michael Levin
You'd think they'd at least give you three hours for that price. Come on, Big Z. First game is a warm-up.

Tanner Steidel
I've got Michael Bradley on the other line. Says he's in the best shape of his life.

Jake Pavorsky
Good, I'm glad I'm not the only one who keeps accidentally referring to Shawn Bradley as "Michael".

[Ed note: Tanner was indeed referring to Michael Bradley. An amazing 2005-2006 run with the Webber Sixers.]

Rich Hoffmann
Lee Nailon can fire up as many long deuces as he wants this year.

Michael Levin
Still waiting on Mashburn to get some run.

Jake Pavorsky

I once watched Brian Skinner get rim stuffed in person once. It was glorious.
