Manfred Nissley and his views on NBA happenings
Minnetonka Lake Restaurant Interviews
Andrew Joplin

We here at Minnetonka Lake Restaurant invite a person important to our state every week to tell us about their life and what they think about current events, we hang the articles on our restaurant walls. We are happy to announce that the Minneapolis Times has asked if we would like to publish this interview. We of course said yes!

AJ: Hello Manfred!

MN: Hello Andrew!

Andrew: We appreciate you coming to here and agreeing to do an interview with us.

Manfred: No problem, especially since I come here anyways. I love your policy of banning soy from your cooking!

Andrew: Oh! You appreciate that!

Manfred: Yes I do, Lets just say that if... never mind that would give Kevin Durant ideas.

Andrew: Ok! Tell us about what your opinion of the state of the NBA right now.

Manfred:
I feel the Stealth are starting to peak right now. They probably don't have much run left unless they pick up a point guard like me. I will say that I hope they dont try to trade or me as I do not want to play with KD. He is an arrogant snob, and the refs dont call a lot of his fouls. I still have a bruise from one of his elbows digging in my back from the last time we met.
I feel sorry for the Kings as I think they already peaked and I don't think they can pull another playoff upset over the Thunder. They may not get a chance If we meet them in the first round. Chara is the only person keeping that team afloat. People like to think that Chara is mean individual but I got to know him over the summer and I would love to have him here in Minnesota. Hint, Hint Management. I think Chara would be the final piece we need.
In the East I feel the Nets have the best chance to upset the Thunder. They have a nice core.

Andrew: Whats your opinion of the rumor saying that players want to go on strike to get a new agreement.

Manfred: What an idiotic idea. I think we players are paid far too much. The players should be happy with what we have. If they want to see what extreme salaries do to a nation they should check out Greece. The players over there don't even get paid anymore due to the nation paying so much out to their current and former workers.

Andrew: Who do you like in the next presidential election?

Manfred: Herman Cain

Andrew: Who do you think will win "Dancing with the stars"

Manfred: Whats that?

Andrew: Nevermind.

Manfred: Actually I prefer America's got talent and Briton's got talent.

Andrew: Cool. Now you said recently that there is some personal news that you would be releasing eventually. When will that occur?

Manfred: Not yet at least. It may be 10 years from now.

Andrew: I hear you like listening to Old Time Radio.

Manfred: Yes, I love those old shows. Jack Benny, The Great Gildersleeve, The Life of Riley, This is your FBI, among many others.

Andrew: Cool. Do you own a collection of shows and if so where did you buy them?

Manfred: Oh I have a large collection. It should be noted that you do not have to buy them as their copyrights have long run out!

Andrew: Well it was good having you here. One more quick question. What is your opinion of how Sit has done in Seattle. Do you think the owners are cool or do you think someone else should own the team.

Manfred: It is my opinion that the Stealth should stay as they are. If they change ownership it would be much harder for us to beat them as they would come down of KD perty hard for his antics. Ty is totally underrated by their owners and while KD is good they treat him like is the king there. That is not good for any team.

Andrew: Well good to have you here. Enjoy your meal!

Manfred: Thank you! Well "I had better be shoveling off." Or "shoveling in" in this case. I need to be at practice in 1 hour.


Editor's note: It should be noted that the phrase "I had better be shoveling off" comes from Digger O'dell the friendly undertaker on the "Life of Riley"

Amazed how this is still going on, I admire your dedication to this. Browsed through the past 30 or so pages, the ones that I've missed, but didn't see anything about virtual me, except that Clippers are still sucking. I think I was injured at some point, still recovering from it?

The Benny Hinn saga continues
Part 1
Richard Milton

Well more is coming out of the woodwork now that certain individuals are behind bars stemming from the Drug bust in Seattle a few months ago. Yesterday Gene T. Hermann was hit with NCAA sanctions. Gene T. Hermann is a 6'1" PG from Olin College. Yesterday the school announced that Gene had been suspended from school due to conduct detrimental to the university. Gene is not a great player and a was a long shot in the draft this year and did not appear on most draft boards. In unprecedented move the NCAA is requiring him to pay his former school $100,000 because of how it has been determined he was ineligible to play due to playing for a small relatively unknown pro basketball team before entering college on a scholarship. It turns out he had also been payed $70,000 per year for the last 2 years by the California Condors just for being on their roster. The California Condors it turns out were owned by one of Benny Hinn's shadow companies - Miracle Sports. While the Condors' headquarters were based in California their home playing location was Tanzania. It was only 2 months ago when investigators discovered the shadow organization and shut it down. While investigating the organization it was discovered that not only did they sign college kids to big paydays to play during summer leagues they also offered them performance enhancing drugs. It turns out that the California Condors whooped up on the other teams in the TBA (Tanzania Basketball Association). Questions are now being raised in Tanzania as to who should now receive the Championships now that the awards have been stripped from the Condors.

Part 2
Mark Revlon

Yesterday Harvard was forced to give the US government access to its files by court order. Investigators will not say what they are looking for. There are rumors linking the Benny Hinn scandal to a another very high profile individual. The individual has not been named but for some reason as soon as the FBI went into Harvard the Dow dropped 100 points. What is a little odder is that the Nasdaq jumped at the same time by 10 points.

Part 3
Oobo Hue

BREAKING NEWS
The price on Nike stocks is falling through the floor today after Chinese authorities arrested the owner, and several of his workers, of a plant that makes Nike shoes. It has turned out that shoes from his plant were laced with cocaine or marijuana and that several NBA players who wore shoes from that plant may have been falsely accused in past years of drug abuse. Possibly among the players that may be cleared are Chris Anderson and Stanley Roberts. Or it may come out that they were directly involved at some point.

    Celtics Beat: One on One with Resurreccion
    by Evans Clinchy

    One of the Celtics' prized free agent acquisition last offseason was the the 5'8" point guard from the Philippines, Zoilo Resurreccion. He's a smart player that loves to set up his teammates on the floor but can also score with his outside jumpers when needed. The Princeton graduate was a starter in Philadelphia since his rookie year but now finds himself playing behind Rajon Rondo.

    We managed to caught up with the Celtic's back-up point after practice. Below is the full transcript of the interview:

    EC: Hi Zoilo! You look exhausted, tough practice?

    ZR: Yeah, coach was really hard on us today. we've got a lot of kinks to iron out. Practice sessions are few and far in-between that's why the coaching staff really pushes us when they gets a chance.

    EC: Hmmm.. Interesting. Anyway, how's it like playing for the C's?

    ZR: It's nice to be here. Playing in a franchise with this much history, you can't help but admire the championship banners hanging at the Garden. Plus being in the same team with three future hall-of-famers in KG, Paul and Ray is such a dream come true for me. I just wish that we could get back on track and win more games and at least challenge for that last playoffs spot.

    EC: About that, why do you think the team has struggled this season?

    ZR: Well It has been awhile since the "Big Three" formed here in Boston and teams around the league probably learned how to contain them plus they aren't getting any younger, they may have lost a step or two. Also the reserves this year, myself included, isn't the same as when they won the championship. But we all gotta stick together and play our hearts out every time we take the court.

    EC: I see. You were a starter in Philly a season ago and helped them clinch home court advantage in the first round. why did you decide to sign here in Boston?

    ZR: Well, with Elton and Byron leaving the team I weighed my choices whether to re-sign in Philly or accept the Celtics' offer. I decided to come to Boston. As I said earlier, the history of this franchise is a big sell for me. I know the front office will try everything in their power to make this team competitive. And who wouldn't want to be etched in Celtics' history alongside Bill Russell, Larry Bird and all the other greats.

    EC: But I'm sure you were aware that you'll be playing behind Rajon Rondo, right?

    ZR: Of course, I'm fully aware of that. I know that he runs this team and I'm just here to compliment him. Come to think of it, we both love passing the ball, so when I sub-in for him, it's like nothing really changes. My teammates still get the ball where they want it.

    EC: Are you two on good terms?

    ZR: We are. We hang-out all the time, play video games, all sort of guy things. Rajon has been my "tour guide" since I came here. But that doesn't mean I won't challenge him for the starting spot, but it's good thing for both of us. We push ourselves and I know it will eventually make us better players. Just some friendly competition.

    EC: I guess having a little competition, wouldn't hurt the team. Let's talk about your roots, how does it feel like being the first Filipino to be drafted and play in an NBA team?

    ZR: It's a big honor. I know how basketball crazed our country is and I know they are rooting for me. There are far greater Filipino players before me but just didn't have the chance. I'm thankful for my coaches and teammates in Princeton for believing in me and giving me the chance to showcase my abilities.

    EC: Last question before we end this, do you think the C's can make it to the playoffs this season?

    ZR: I hope so. But whether or not we make it, I assure our fans that we'll give our 110% effort every night.

    EC: Well, that's about it. Thanks for the time Zoilo!

    ZR: No, Problem man. See you in the games.

Chapter 31

It was crunch time.
Ty walked back to the middle of the floor as the cheers became louder. He looked up at the scoreboard to check the time left in the game. It read 54.4 seconds. The game was tied at 119. It was Seattle ball and on the court with Ty were Bogut, Lee, Iverson and Kidd. The Hawks had Al Horford, Josh Smith, Andrea Bargnani, Manu Ginobili and Stanley Mayo.
Ty rubbed his hands together and laughed at Sheed jumping up and down on the sideline yelling, “Tysonnnnnnnnnnn!”
Kidd patted him on the back, “Relax!”
Ty nodded as the game officials began to take their places. Lee was inbounding the ball at halfway. Kidd came up to get it as the Hawks stayed back on defence. Kidd dribbled the ball on the spot and went closer to the top of the perimeter. Ty came off a Bogut screen that freed him up at the wing on the three point line. Kidd passed him the ball as the crowd was on their feet. Ty squared up and faced the hoop. He didn’t waste any time and began to drive to the rack. Manu had caught up in front of Ty and swiped at the basketball. He caught Ty on the wrist.
“Foul!” Ty was yelling out, “Call the foul!”
He was still dribbling when he felt Manu’s leg make contact with his. Ty tumbled to the ground as the crowd booed.
“That’s a defensive foul on Ginobili!” the ref called out and motioned to the scorers’ bench.
The Hawks had a foul to give and were not in the penalty. It was another Seattle inbound.
“Call the foul!” Ty was yelling out at one of the refs.
Kidd called out to Ty, “Forget about it. Keep playing!”
Manu was tugging on the back of Ty’s jersey as they lined up for the inbound, which was from the sideline right in front of the home team’s bench.
“Stop playing dirty,” Ty said as he grabbed Manu’s arm and pushed it away.
Manu kept nudging Ty out of position. Ty waited for Lee to get the rock and pushed off of Manu to go get the ball. He managed to free himself of Manu for a few moments and enough time to get some personal space in order to get the ball and square up to face the hoop again. Manu was back in his face in no time though and again kept swiping at the ball uncontrollably. Ty was back on the wing at the three point line and looking for options. The shot clock was winding down and he had to do something with the ball. He passed it up to Iverson who pass it to the other side of the court to Kidd. Kidd threw the ball into Bogut who backed down in the post and missed the hook shot.
“I told you to take the shot!” Karl was yelling out to Ty.
“They’re not calling the foul!” Ty was yelling back at Karl as he ran back on defence.
Mayo pushed the ball up the floor and the Hawks set up their offence. Ty was matched up on Manu and would try and return the favour from the other end. The two jostled for position as the Hawks patiently swung the ball around the perimeter and moved around the floor with precision cuts in and out of the painted area. Ty was chasing Manu all over the court. Manu was finally hit with the pass on the left hand side of the floor. Ty thought he had him covered and forced him towards the baseline. Manu dribbled hard to the hoop and precariously close to the edge of the court. Ty was now keeping up with him going sideways and trying to force him out of bounds on the baseline. He had both arms in the air as Manu went strong to the hoop. Manu went up in the air cradling the ball in his left hand and swinging his right elbow into Ty’s body.
“Argh!” Ty managed to yelp out as he held the side of his body.
Manu’s left handed reverse layup did not drop as the refs blew their whistles. Ty was nodding to himself but only too soon as the refs called the defensive foul on him.
“What!” Ty was approaching the game official to protest.
Kidd and Lee both got in his way.
“Calm the fuck down!” Lee was yelling in Ty’s ear as Kidd was pushing him back towards the end of the court.
Manu walked past and slapped Ty on the ass, “Bad luck.”
“Fuck off!” Ty called out to him, trying to compose himself.
George Karl had his hands on his hips, shaking his head. Manu stepped up to the charity stripe and sank both free throws. With only one timeout left, Karl opted to let his team play on. He looked up at the clock and could see there was only around 20 seconds left in the game. His team needed a quick shot.

Kidd knew that his team needed to get down the floor fast. Bogut had grabbed the ball as it came through the hoop on the second free throw. The Hawks were up 121-119 and the clock was still going. He quickly stepped out of the court and passed the ball to Kidd who turned to take the ball down the floor.
“Pass it to Ty!” Lee was yelling.
Ty was already halfway up the floor and trying to beat the Hawks defence. Kidd threw a long pass down the court to Ty. Ty caught the lob in the air and came down with it. He was a few steps away from the three point line. Smith and Mayo were waiting on the other end for him. Ty put the ball on the floor and drove hard to the rack. He put a spin move on Mayo that bamboozled him and the last defender on the floor was Smith. Ty did not hesitate and went for the dunk.
“Come on!” his teammates were yelling from the bench as Ty went up for the jam.
The crowd nearly brought the roof down with their cheers as Ty hung onto the rim. Ty’s teammates were jumping up and down while Sheed was dancing with the cheerleaders.
“That’s a charge!” the ref called out.
Smith had both fists clenched as he sat upright on the ground. Ty had come back down onto the ground and was shaking his head.
“Come on man – that was good. That was not a charge!” he was arguing.
“You barged right into him. That charge was as clear as daylight,” one of the officials stated matter of factly.
“You got to be kidding me!” Ty was now getting really frustrated with all the calls.
The Stealth fans were booing at the top of their lungs and yelling abuse to the refs. A small part of the crowd was even chanting ‘Bullshit! Bullshit! Bullshit!” The Hawks called time out.

“Could this be the end of the Stealth’s winning streak?” Reggie Miller asked aloud.
Steve Kerr was on the broadcast with Reggie and replied, “The two teams are back at their benches trying to plan what to do next. Let’s quickly see what’s happening in the Seattle huddle. But I do think this might very well be the end of the winning streak for Seattle Reg.”
“We need to get back out there and hustle, get the stop and earn that last shot,” Coach Karl said to his team, “Ty, you need to create your shot. You are the best scorer we have on the floor, don’t pass it up. Go up strong against Ginobili. Don’t worry about the foul calls. OK?”
Ty nodded as his teammates all put their hands into the middle of the huddle.
“That was Coach Karl telling Reshawn Tyson to go back out there and lead the Stealth,” Reggie explained, “I think Tyson really has to stay composed and play his own game out there. You could see he was rushing a bit on those last few Stealth possessions.”
Kerr agreed, “You could see that he was trying to force the issue but at the same time seems a bit restrictive on what his own game out there. He’s not doing what he usually does best. We all know he can hit that mid range jay.”
“All he needs is some space out there,” Reggie added.
“Well, we all know you know all about clutch shooting Reggie,” Kerr laughed, “How many times have you been in a situation like this?”
Reggie didn’t boast, “Let’s stay focussed on the game Steve.”
Both teams spilled back onto the floor with the Hawks inbounding from halfway.
“The Hawks will probably want to get this one to Manu so that he can put up the last shot,” Reggie said as both he and Kerr watched Josh Smith surveying the floor.
“And Tyson comes up with a steal!”

Ty had intercepted the pass intended for Stanley Mayo. He had to leave Manu open in order to do so. It was a gamble but a worthwhile one as he came up with the steal. Mayo had beaten Kidd to some open space near halfway and Ty was quick enough to chase after and get in-between Mayo and the basketball. Mayo and Manu immediately swarmed on Ty at halfway, forcing him to call a timeout. It was the Stealth’s last one.
“Quick, quick!” Karl shouted to his players.
Durant sat on the bench and did not look interested in what was going on.
“We got one shot. Let’s try and tie this one. We have about 15 seconds to make it work,” Karl said to his players.
“Make this one count,” he said to Ty as the players broke out of the huddle.
Ty breathed in deeply. This was really it. It was his time to prove that he could be one bit of the player Durant was. He looked over at Durant and knew how much he would hate to see him hit the final shot. Not only was a shot at Durant on the line but the team’s amazing winning streak was also at stake. Ty had 31 points at this stage but had not scored in the past 5 minutes. However, that did not matter as the game could possible come down to this one shot.
“Andrew!” Ty yelled out to Bogut for the screen.
Lee had the ball at halfway and Bogut rushed up to set the screen for Ty. Ty used it to his advantage and got free at the top of the key. The pass from Lee came in quickly. Ty had his hands out ready to receive the pass. Everything else that happened next happened so quickly that he couldn’t even believe it. Ty dropped the pass allowing Manu to poke the ball from the side and knock it ahead towards the other end of the court. Ty did not react fast enough to chase Many down as the Argentine collected the rock and blitzed down the other end for an uncontested layup. The shot put the Hawks up by 4, 123-119, just less than 10 seconds left. With no timeouts to call, that was just enough time for Iverson to put up a bad three point attempt. Al Horford grabbed the board and held onto the ball as the buzzer sounded.

Wow, what a choke by Ty. But Manu is ice-cold. He's like a master out there. It's okay to see that streak ending. Such streak record need to be held by real great teams. By championship teams. (trying to provoke you a bit :) )

It's probably better we have finished with the second longest winning streak of all-time rather than breaking the longest one. :)

We are not worthy of that place in history yet as you have alluded to!

I hope everyone enjoyed that Chapter. Did not know how to do it but am pretty content with the final outcome. I know you guys can't wait for Chapter 32!

MESSAGE TO THE READERS

Thank you for the honor of posting the 5000th reply to my thread. It is quite an achievement to do this as I never thought ALIB would go for this long. I can't really explain what it means and I guess I have been sitting on the 100th page for a while so it's not as exciting as it could have been. We all know how many of these milestone posts I've done. Anything more said would just be re-hashing old content.

Anyways, I guess i will use the opportunity to let you know of my future intentions with this D.

I aim to finish this current season. And I aim to win the championship with the Stealth. Now that the winning streak is over, we can move on with All Star Weekend and after that, we can get straight into the playoffs, which is what we all like to see.

Thank you to those readers who have been there since the start. You all know who you are and I would love for you to mention it if you so please!

Without the continued support, this story would not reach such a historic milestone.

What makes this thread special is your participation and your input. I love all the work here and what I really love is the interaction! I don't think this is that great of a story - it's definitely the company that is great.

There are so many more great threads out there that I do not think mines ranks at the top. However, I am proud to see this part of the forum alive again in its own right!

Stay Fresh, Keep It Real!
