Dallas Mavericks point guard J.J. Barea(notes), the first native of Puerto Rico ever to start an NBA Finals game and a key piece in the late-series success that the Mavs rode to the 2011 NBA championship, returned home to a massive crowd in San Juan on Wednesday afternoon. On one hand, that is seriously awesome and a super dope exhibition of love for a player that's pretty easy to root for (if you're of the mind to do so).
On the other, the idea of J.J. Barea standing atop a parade float and addressing his adoring fans is pretty fertile ground. Tell me what he said. (It doesn't have to be in Spanish, but there might just be extra credit if it is.)
Best caption wins the pure and chaste love of a parade. Good luck.
In our last adventure: What Greivis Vasquez(notes) used to able to pass off as a bad summer could now potentially turn into a bad life. (And that is a beautifully long walk for a reference 11 people will get.)
Winner, Russell S: Lamaze: You're doing it wrong.
Vasquez: "AAH! What are you all doing here?!"
Second runner-up, Eye of the Tiger: Things grow increasingly awkward as Greivis butt-scoots closer and closer to the the kid in the pink shirt.
