A little bonus athlete run-in story for you today, about Heat swingman James Posey (who, inexplicably, is dominant for us for Miami on NBA Live 06). It comes to us from Erik G:

My friend attended Xavier University while James Posey was there and told me about a conversation he overheard between Posey and a teammate (whose name I can't remember at this time) at a dining hall ice cream machine. As my friend told the story, the guy was making himself an ice cream cone from the soft serve machine with Posey waiting to follow suit. The soft serve was taking a lot of time, and prompted the guy to say to Posey, "Man, this ice cream is THICK!" Posey responded, "Thick like my dick."

Not quite as great as the Ben Gordon story, but good for an afternoon giggle.
