2006-07 Topps Turkey Red Basketball

Tonight is the first of most likely seven NBA Finals games that I won't be watching, so tonight is the ideal night for ripping this Target cheapie pack of Turkey Red. The Larry Bird wrapper is a cruel ruse, albeit one that didn't work on me until the price went down to $1.59.

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
260 Steve Nash Checklist "Pick 'n' Roll"

93 Antoine Walker
110 Dirk Nowitzki

114 Luke Walton Red Parallel
119 Mike Dunleavy
217 Mickael Gelabale

Looks like some UN vs. Silver Spoon class warfare was going on in this pack. We've got the German Nowitzki, the Frenchman Gelabale, and the Canadian Nash. On the other side of the coin we have Bill Walton's son ("Come onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!") and Mike Dunleavy's son. I believe the Dunleavy child of privilege went to the hoity toity private school in Milwaukee's north shore suburbs known as University School while his dad was coaching the Bucks.

And Antoine Walker? Well...he's just a regular ol' black guy.

If you need the Nowitzki to complete you set, or if you're just into freaky white dudes, you can get in touch with me at Thorzul Will Rule.

actually, Dunleavy went to Jesuit HS (which is also kind of hoity-toity) in Portland, OR when his dad was coaching the Blazers.

That's true, but University School of Milwaukee is a K-12 school. He went there for ninth grade (and probable middle school) before Mike Sr. got the job with the Blazers.

Thanks for backing me up, Jeanette.

Here's a link that proves it:

From Jesuit on to hoity-toity private college Duke.
