UF hoops media day is a laugher ...

GAINESVILLE -- The Florida men's basketball team had its preseason media day today. It was great fun. From Chandler Parsons to Walter Hodge, there are some real characters on this season's team. The funniest player, however, gets laughs without even trying. His name is Erving Walker, he's a freshman guard from New York City and he looks and speaks just like former Saturday Night Live star Tracy Morgan.

Good thing for you, Gator Clause has the audio to prove it. Warning: this is pretty funny. Click the play button.

Like me, UF senior guard Walter Hodge noticed the similarities between Walker and Morgan the first time Hodge met the freshman guard. This audio interview of Walter also has a pretty funny reference to UF quarterback Tim Tebow.

More on hoops (including an interview with Miami Pace guard Ray Shipman) and football coming later. Sitting outside the football stadium right now waiting for practice to end.

Pretty similar...I hope he's "enjoyin' (his) sobriety."

But he's wrong, Donovan is the most New York...and it's awesome.

I liked Walter Hodge's little remark about Providence. That was pretty funny. Gotta disagree with you, Adam, about Walker. Erving Walker oozes New York. This kid is so New York he should just play basketball in Timberlands, FUBU shorts and a Yankees fitty. I love him. I already have a man crush on Walker.


Oh, well you do have the advantage of meeting him in-person there Goody! I've only seen photos and clips on GatorBait.com.

But I'll take your word for it...the more NY we can get...the better.

I love watching Billy when we play those tournaments up in MSG. You just know he feels at home. That's why I was hurt when he went to the Magic...not because he left the Gators...but because he didn't leave for the Knicks.
