Shootin’ Bas-ket-balls… We’re Shootin’ Bas-ket-balls…

I know the title is a real song, but I can’t recall where I heard it.  It’s certainly stuck in my head.  Maybe my friends and I made it up as kids, but I think it’s a real song.    Anyone know the source?    Anyway, I know there has been a pause in my 12 days of Brycemas posts.  I have the posts for pretty much all remaining days written and ready to post, but some cards needed for my  "4th Day"  post have not arrived…  two weeks after purchase.  The seller finally shipped them yesterday so I should be back on track this weekend. 
Meanwhile, I did use some of my Harper funds to grab a few cheap Finest basketball.  I couldn't fit them in the 12 Days of Brycemas song, but I'll post about them anyway.   I have little interest in the NBA, but I had it in my head the other night I needed a few superstar cards.  These are pretty cool and they were inexpensive on sportlots. 

Joe Johnson was a Razorback, which is why I got more of his cards, in case you were wondering.

Isn't that Curtis Blow-Basketball?

I thought it could be Space Jam, maybe the Curtis Blow song or a reference to it (no idea). Space Jam. Great movie. Yup.

I'm nearly positive that the song is from 'Lil Penny (the puppet) in the Air Penny Nike commercials for Anfernee Hardaway sneakers. "Hey Tyra, you left your tooth brush at my house!"

That's exactly what I was thinking of, but for some reason I placed it with Space Jam. Same time period, same sport!

The title immediately brought to mind G. Love and the Special Sauce's "Shooting Hoops"

But I imagine it's not what you were thinking of when you came up with your title.
