Straight A's

"He's great on the court," a sportswriter said of a college basketball player in an interview with his coach. "But's how's his scholastic work?"
...."Why, he makes straight A's," replied the coach.
...."Wonderful!" said the sportswriter.
...."Yes," agreed the coach, "but his B's are a little crooked."

Dennis the Menace

A woman is picked up by Dennis Rodman in a bar. They like each other and she goes back with him to his hotel room. He removes his shirt revealing all his tattoos and she sees that on his arm is one which reads, "Reebok." She thinks that is a bit odd and asks him about it.
....Dennis says, "When I play basketball, the cameras pick up the tattoo and Reebok pays me for advertisement."
....A bit later, his pants are off and she sees "Puma" tattooed on his leg. He gives the same explanation for the unusual tattoo.
....Finally, the underwear comes off and she sees the word "AIDS" tattooed on his penis.
....She jumps back with shock. "I'm not going to do it with a guy who has AIDS!"
....He says, "It's cool baby. In a minute it's going to say 'ADIDAS'."

Basketball Shorts

Basketball is America's favorite "running" sport. Number two is avoiding child support payments.

College basketball exists out of necessity. If there was no basketball, it would be necessary for the players to attend class.

I can remember the old days of basketball -- when they shot the ball up at the basket, not down into it.

I play in the over-40 basketball league. We don't have jump balls. The ref just puts the ball on the floor and whoever can bend over and pick it up gets possession.
