Amidst the hoopla of the UK season getting kicked off tonight, it is sometimes easy to look past secondary UK stories. We talked yesterday about the fact that Keith Bogans has become an NBA starter again and how he joined Tayshaun, Chuck Hayes, Jamal Magloire, Rondo and Antoine Walker for that current honor. But last night we found out that there is another, surprising starter. Kelenna Azubuike is now starting for the Golden State Warriors and he kicked off his season last night with 11 points in a home loss to the Utah Jazz. Azubuike has been through it all on his way to the NBA, fighting through the developmental league to become an NBA player, get an NBA contract and now become an NBA starter. It is a great testament not only to his talent, but his perseverance as well. In honor of that feat, we have two videos from “Tarzan”, the first a fairly awful rendition of the “Soulja Boy” by the Golden State Warriors’ rookies with Kaz on the mic (and notice how Brandan Wright may be the whitest guy out there)…..
And the second is the best dunker in recent UK history throwing down multiple dunks…..
