A Book About Jokes, Basketball and Mike Dunleavy, Jr. (and Others)

Yall might know Trey Kerby from such popular online publishing sites such as The Blowtorch, Ball Don’t Lie and The Basketball Jones, which is his current gig. It is not news that he is alive, but it is news that he has finally released The Blowtorch’s Big Book of Basketball Facts.

Within, there are jokes and zings. Best part? You can download it for free.

Here is an excerpt from his passage on Mike Dunleavy, Jr.

Because of his dedication to both basketball and clothes, it has been said that the Dunleavy is instrumental in the explosion of sports fashion in to the streetwear world. As his dad was an NBA coach, he got exclusive sneakers months before even the coolest of cool kids, so it makes sense that he would be the first to wear limited edition shoes with tight jeans. That is just one of example of the many trends that Mike Dunleavy, Jr. started.

But fashion is a double-edged sword, supposedly. So while Dunleavy!s trends became more and more ingrained in the public consciousness, he became more and more disillusionsed with fashion at-large. Because of this, Dunleavy Jr. has turned his back on the couture world and is now strictly anti-fashion. When off the court, he can often be found sporting one of two sack-like outfits, either made from burlap or corduroy. It was a drastic stance that hasn!t really caught on, kind of like how he decided to sign a large contract then not be good at basketball. While that might make Dunleavy, Jr. pretty happy, not a lot of people share his sentiments.

A little harsh there at the end, but I imagine this was written prior to the start of this season and I think even MDJ himself would be willing to admit that he was not all that good at basketball last year.

As we can see both here and here, however, Dunny does have quite the sartorial bent. And, yeah, he definitely got it from his pops.
