It’s too early for Jon Rothstein, but here he is anyway

Everyone’s favorite awesome guy, Jon Rothstein, put the celebrity friends on hold and made the ladies at the gym wait momentarily as he hit “pause” in his super freakin’ unbelievable life to preview Alabama and Kentucky.  Please, Jonny, don’t hurt ’em!

Yes, he said Terrence Jones is a “lefty, poor man’s version of Magic Johnson” and that Darius Miller is a leading candidate to be this team’s “stabilizer”, which was not a reference to Michael Porter.

I guess he didn’t get to watch Rocky before they taped that.  No joke – that’s what he does before every show.

Rothstein!

    I went to college with Jon; he was a down to earth guy back then. Maybe things have changed?

    I know I have seen that Jon Rothstein before…I think the last time was when he tried to throw Andy Dufresne off the roof of Shawshank prison.

    Magic Johnson is a poor man’s lefty compared to Chuck Norris!

    #5 good call. He does look like Clancy Brown, who is the actor who played that guard in Shawshank according to IMDB.

    Thought it was a damn good analysis all the way around. Miller’s play will be the telling factor in how far this this team goes.

    Jon looks like he could be Bruce Perl’s illegitimate son…
