A few weeks ago, we offered cash bounties for photographs of Charles Barkley having fun in Oklahoma City. We got a decent response, but the thing was kind of ruined by Chuck's visibility and availability during his stay. It seems like you couldn't check Facebook without seeing photo after photo of Barkley jogging downtown, drinking at the Red Piano or chasing a prostitute from his hotel room. Hell, he was even followed around with a local media entourage that included Jenni Carlson. It's hard to be cool when Jenni Carlson follows you around.
Anyway, because our Charles Barkley bounty hunt was kind of anti-climatic, we've decided to have another competition. This time we are seeking photographs of local and national celebrities, NBA players and members of the sports media who are in town to report and enjoy the NBA Finals. We'll pay $1 for any photo we publish on the site. We are also offering additional cash for any who snaps a pic of one of the following:
$11.78: Lil Wayne trying to buy some scalped tickets
I think it's pretty cool that The Thunder told Lil Wayne to go f*ck himself when he demanded courtside seats and VIP treatment to Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. Lets hope they do the same thing to Toby Keith, Garth Brooks or any other white hillbilly country western bandwagoner who wants to got to an NBA Finals Game at the Peake.
$3.73: Greyson Chance yelling "Good Job, Good Effort" to the Heat players as they leave the Skirvin
$1.12: John Hollinger performing complex mathematical calculations while waiting on a drink at Coffee Slingers
John Hollinger is my favorite NBA columnist. He brings to the table a great balance of statistical analysis, logic and cynicism. He also really happens to really like Coffee Slingers.
p.s. - The Ogle Office is in the same building at Coffee Slingers. Maybe I can snap this pic on my own.
$18: Skip Bayless scoring 1.4 points in a pickup game at the Downtown YMCA
