Don’t Watch Gil, Watch Gil on Reality TV

Posted by on August 19th, 2008 in Commentary

In that radio interview that was linked to earlier, Gilbert mentioned that he was mulling over a deal to do a reality TV show.  While I’m doubting that he’ll end up pulling the trigger on the offer (just call it a gut feeling) it does stir the imagination about what a reality show with Gil would be like.  If it goes through, here’s what you could expect:

  • High ratings.
  • Merciless violence towards Nick Young and Andray Blatche.
  • Gilbert comparing something or someone to LeBron or Kobe in every episode.
  • He’ll say something that inadvertently angers another team’s fanbase at least once a week.  If it lasts for a whole season, he’ll most assuredly offend every team in the league.
  • Halo.  Lots and lots of Halo.  I’m guessing it’s the main reason why he won’t end up taking the offer.
  • A special guest appearance by Awvee Storey!
  • Several instances of Gilbert talking to strangers on the street.
  • Lots of footage of Gil at his midnight shooting sessions.
  • Marathon Halo sessions.
  • Lots of scenes where Gilbert walks by his new pool.
  • Very few scenes of Gilbert actually swimming in his pool.
  • The occasional Borat impression, which inevitably ends up sounding like Oleksiy Pecherov’s voice.
  • Lots of pranks.  Most of them directed towards Nick Young and Dominic McGuire.
  • At least one instance of Gilbert trying to change one his children’s diapers, and failing miserably.
  • Lots of rookie hazing.  Consider yourself warned, JaVale McGee.
  • Did I mention Halo?

    Hmmm…I’m betting we’ll see domestic arguments with his baby momma/girlfriend, such as when he didn’t go to Canada because he forgot his passport and didn’t want to go back home and face her to get it…..I believe getting kicked out the house and/or car had something to do with it as well.

    Not only would we see domestic arguments, but they’d be silly domestic arguments too. Think Jessica Simpson “Chicken of the Sea” argument.
