NBA Announcers Make Fun Of WWE & WWE Superstars

During the UK broadcast of last night’s NBA Playoff game on Channel Five they ran the story about WWE being double booked at the Pepsi Center. They then listed a mock "starting 5" for the WWE, saying why they might be good for basketball. It read as follows:

Point Guard – John Cena – 6’1" (star of hip-hop and films)
Shooting Guard – Randy Orton – 6’4" (former marine – dishonourably discharged)
Center – The Big Show – 7′ (massive in size and former college player)
Small Forward – Montel Vontavious Porter – 6’3" (MVP)
Power Forward – Batista – 6’5" (Champion at Summerslam 05 in Wizards’ MCI Center)

Just found this to be quite amusing, especially the way they linked Orton’s career in the armed forces to being a shooting guard.
