Tim Legler Compares Clippers’ Two PG Offense to Wearing a Snuggie (Video)

Yes, NBA analyst Tim Legler compared the fit of the Clippers’ two point guard offense to wearing a Snuggie blanket. Don’t ask me where he got it from, or why he’s mentioning it, but the blanky man really went there. It was pretty astounding. I think it may have even caught SportsCenter host Lindsay Czarniak off guard.

Here’s the video:

Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time a Snuggie was mixed together with the NBA.

Angels Break Cavaliers Snuggie Record

It was only a month ago that the Cavaliers set the Guinness World Record for largest gathering of people wearing fleece blankets thanks to a snuggie giveaway at a home game. The Angels saw what the Cavs did and thought pretty logically — we have a larger stadium capacity so we can easily blow that record away and grab some pub in the process. They did just that on the second day of the season, having their fans slip on a Hideki Matsui #55 Angels snuggie in the 5th inning of their game with the Twins. Here’s what it looks like when 43,510 fans slip on a red fleece blanket aka snuggie:

The Angels lost to the Twins 5-3 to even up the series and they got what they deserved for running a cheesy promo. My guess is some college football team comes along and blows them all away this fall. Just what we need, 106,000 maize snuggies at The Big House. Yikes.

Anderson Varejao Sports the Cleveland Cavaliers Snuggie

Anderson Varejao is quite the character as we’ve come to find out. No surprise he was out in front leading the Cavs in their effort to set a Guinness World Record for “largest gathering of people wearing fleece blankets” aka snuggies. Check out Mr. Varejao sporting his Cleveland Cavaliers snuggie at the pregame shootaround.

Snuggie night wasn’t proving to be too successful early on as the Cavs were trailing by as much as 20 in the second quarter. I don’t know how I feel about the giveaway — it looks like a whole bunch of maroon Yodas in the crowd. Maybe come playoff time they’ll do a snuggie-out.
