I don’t write things with the intention or belief that any member of a University of Louisville athletic program reads what is posted here. It would be foolish and presumptuous of me to think that my opinion could have an impact on any real live game scenario.
That being said, I need someone to reach out to Montrezl Harrell for me. I need a message relayed to him.
It’s me, the guy that never forgets the L at the end of your name. I feel confident that I speak for all fans of The University of Louisville when I say that we are all impressed with your ability to desecrate a backboard. We were all left marveled at your most recent rim dismantling in Florida. You really butchered that last backboard, and it will never trifle with you again. I am still feeling confident when I say that all Cardinal fans wish to see you exterminate one of the backboards at the KFC YUM center, during a game.
We know that you can channel your inner Marshawn Lynch so as to go “Beast mode” on the rim. The backboard will surely not be about that action boss. Let me break it down Trezl. No one in the history of the Louisville basketball program has broken a backboard in-game. At least I have never seen it.
The crowd goes ape whenever you violently construct one of your acrobatic dunking mosaics, imagine the fever pitch when all of the glass shatters onto the ground. The roof may literally catch fire from the energy of a crowd that appreciates fine dunking. A tear would most certainly arise to the eyes of Dunkenstein, Alvin Sims, and many other Louisville laureates of the throw down. Do it for us Trezl, the people who love to watch you soar through the air and get angry at the rim. Do it for The ACC.
The conference was spared of you when that whole Virginia Tech thing fell through, show them what they’ve been missing. Break our rims, break their rims, break all the rims in every game if you have to. No one has a rim that is ready for you this year, and you haven’t been stopped yet. Most importantly though Trezl, do it for yourself. It’s obvious that you enjoy breaking backboards, you’ve taken out two already this summer. If shattering backboards gives you peace then I want you to be at peace my brother. Our symbiotic fan/player relationship can be exercised in one of its most pure forms this season. You could give yourself and 22,000 other people the greatest feeling on Earth with one effortless act on your part. You hold the key to the loudest noise ever made inside the YUM center with one of your favorite activities.
I don’t know what got into Montrezl recently, but I foresee this backboard violence continuing. Montrezl Harrell was an eye popping athletic specimen from the first day he stepped on the court. It would be a scary site to behold a polished, high-flying power forward getting up and down the court in an up tempo offense.
Montrezl is already one of the stars of this season’s Louisville basketball team and will most likely be one of the best players in The ACC this upcoming season. Boston College and Georgia Tech may want to reinforce the backboards in their gyms when Trezl comes to town. No rim is safe around Montrezl Harrell, hopefully not even our own.
