It wasn’t as emotional as seeing a malnourished dog in a puppy mill while hearing Sarah Mclachlan’s music but I got a little emotional seeing Andray “just wanted a triple double” Blatche appear during the In Memoriam video from the Starters awards. Other notable moments from the tribute video were LeBron’s headband, Chris Paul’s ankles and Steve Nash.
Semi off topic rant – I always hate when people clap for specific people during Memoriams on award shows. It’s always for some current or very mainstream artist and rarely for the lesser known pioneers and just as, if not more, influential human in the montage.
Anyways, here’s some of the other nominees from the 2nd annual Starters Awards Show.
