The news cycle is not slow today, in fact it's stuffed with things to report. Why? Because today is Rudy Gay's birthday.
Everyone should know by now, even though I do hide my biases a little, that Rudy Gay is my absolute favorite player in the NBA, which means his birthday is worth celebrating with aforementioned facts over the jump.
Newsflash #1: Rudy Gay dunks a basketball through the hoop exceptionally well for a strapping lad of 24, especially when his talents are in South Beach.
Newsflash #2: Rudy Gay is totally cool and should be your favorite player too, unless your favorite player is Marc Gasol, in which case you are excused. Otherwise, we're paying him a hell of a lot of money for you not to over-appreciate his talents.
Newsflash #3: Clank! Boy don't you wish we still had Kyle Lowry? So do I, so does Rudy, let's get that boy a present right now and bring Kyle back.
And I suppose we can end it all with my personal favorite Rudy Gay mixtape that I could find in about 5 minutes of YouTube. Show me your favorites and leave Rudy a "Happy Birthday" in the comments.
