Before this summer, Dorell Wright couldn't do a single regional dialect beyond the one he grew up mastering in Los Angeles. Now, the Philadelphia 76ers swingman can say, "Heeeeey, I'm WALKIN' here!" in 11 different accents, including "Medford Man," as he proved during his squad's not-that-fun-to-watch 109-101 loss to the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.

Before you know it, he'll be popping up on animated series like nobody's business. Check out NBA H. Jon Benjamin over here.

Best caption wins 10 minutes of Mel Blanc talking to David Letterman, because you deserve this. Good luck.

Winner, Jason: "Nope, those alternate jerseys still look terrible from far away."

Runner-up, BrentM: "Hey Klay, I think your parents are over there with your debit card for you!"

Second runner-up, Marco: "Ah, the playoffs. So near, yet so far, far away."

NOTE: And only getting further away with each defensive possession, as SB Nation's Tom Ziller recently wrote.
