Ian Mahinmi has his own fashion line. It’s in his native France and is called French Deal. The brand lists a bunch of athletes as supporters. Several NBA players, a good amount of them french guys currently in the league, or old Pacers teammates of his. Also Steve Nash, Gary Sheffield, and Ginuwine. He even got Boom Heron in the mix. Warren, OH stand up.
Mahinmi looks sure of himself on the French Deal site. He’s on the front page in leopard print shoes, staring at me, trying to figure out what number I’m thinking of. It’s seven. He’s out four to six weeks at the start of the season with a partially torn meniscus, something that’s very much a bummer for all involved. There’s a little Hugh Glass to these Wizards. If I heard Wall was out for the year on account of being attacked by a bear I think I’d just shrug and go back to doing whatever I was doing. The depth amongst their bigs will be tested with Mahinmi out. They’re thin there already. Hopefully Ochefu gets some burn. He’s pure of soul.
Couple of the French Deal models look confused in the pictures on the site. Like they were trying to convince someone they had thoughts and feelings. One of the guys has a real hard time smiling. Seems like he read how to do it in a book and tried it for the first time that day without ever seeing someone else do it. Sort of reminds me of Trump doing anything. Have you noticed when he claps it looks like he’s trying to remember how to clap? Okay, this hand goes here. This hand here. And you just touch them with great, great authority. We have to have very, very great authority, folks. Nobody claps like me, believe me. These leaders we have now? They don’t clap. They’ve never clapped. I’ve had lots of people come up to me as I go around this great country of ours and they say Mr. Trump, I’m worried. I’m worried. I’m scared. I’m scared for my family, for my children, for our future. And I’m telling you, folks, Hillary doesn’t even have hands.
It’s the same thing with those uncooked salmon skin lips of his. He doesn’t remember how he wants to hold them, so that’s why all the indecision, all the activity. His face moves at twice the rate of a normal person, bending, folding itself, the smiles looking like they took work, like he’s paid for hours of classes to learn how to properly perform them and he’s going to get this right. His teeth remind me I’ll die.
