Those are his words, not ours– I don’t think we can stress that enough.

The good news is that new Sixers color analyst Malik Rose has been a major upgrade over Eric Snow, mostly because he’s awake during broadcasts. In fact, last night, he was so awake that he was even able to channel his inner “Negrodamus,” whose name comes to the world courtesy of Dave Chappelle.

For those of you who can’t watch the above video: 

Rose: He made me seem like a fortune teller, right on cue. 

Zumoff: What else do you see in that crystal ball? 

Rose: I don’t know man, I was channeling my inner Negrodamus. 


Something tells me this game won’t be getting a ratings press release from CSN. That statement is based on nothing more than my unscientific calculation, since only one reader, Patrick, took notice of Rose's comment. Thanks, Pat. 

And thank you, Malik.
