Battle Royale: Chris vs. Chris

A battle has begun down at the Rooftop Comedy headquarters that looks as if it will get ugly really quickly.

Chris Garcia, an avid Lakers fan, brought a new-in-the-box Starting Lineup action figure of former Lakers center Vlade Divac to hang on the wall near his desk.

Chris Casey, not wanting the office to fall under control of the evil Laker regime, countered his move by purchasing a nearly identical Chris Mullen action figure on ebay.

The wall has been divided in half and no one knows where this one will end up…

You’re going down, Casey! If anything this is going to start in typical Warriors fashion – full of promise and potential, then you’re going to trade your best Starting Line Up doll for three skinny bigs that can’t play d or get boards, everything is going to fall apart, and you’re gonna start hitting the bottle.

My next purchase is in the mail…

Looks as if Erik Allen is moderating this bout…

1. It’s “Mullin”.
2. Both players have won the same number of NBA titles, but only one has an Olympic gold medal.
3. While Mullin is actually from New York City, his flattop haircut is more reminiscent of a European player like Divac, forbidden by rule to visit American barbers.
4. Ironically, noted boozehound Don Nelson actually got Chris Mullin to QUIT drinking.

See, this is what I’m talking about, Sean. Warrior’s fans can’t even spell their own player’s names. To Chris C’s credit: Chris Mullin – way harder to spell than Vlade Divac.
