Actual Basketball?


Nice artwork and narration today. I confess that I am intrigued.

Pointless but potentially related story: Some years ago, on a flight to (or possibly from) Dallas, I was seated next to a woman who skillfully defeated my attempts not to engage in a conversation with her during our brief acquaintance.  As a result of this reversal, I came to learn quite a bit about this person’s life and what she thought about it. Among other things, her daughter had once been a scholarship basketball player at Baylor. However, the daughter left the program and the school because she felt her coaches and teammates put too much pressure on her to practice basketball at the expense of her studies. The woman particularly noted how happy she was for her daughter who was now (or at least as of the time this was related to me) pursuing a graduate degree in economics at a prestigious far-from-Texas university.

Pointless but potentially the reason I’m really intrigued to see where this arc goes fact: My own daughter is projected to grow to be just north of six feet tall. I don’t know that I would ever push her towards basketball (although the lure of that sweet, sweet athletic scholarship money which surely doesn’t come with strings attached is tempting), but I will be one proud papa if she can go out there and just knock fools out like it ain’t even a thing and then yank them back up off the ground one handed. Kenzie is hardly even using her legs to lift!




  1. Before M.C. JIIK [ aka J2K ] endorsed nose-crushing basketballs, he was all about keeping the kicks looking box fresh all day, every day.

    Who would make that up?

  2. Kenzie may have thighs of steel, but her face appears to be disquietingly malleable. Maybe that’s why Whigham didn’t actually show her in yesterday’s strip: he still hasn’t decided what she looks like.

  3. Oh gaawwd – she dont even look female, let alone like a hoopster. Wonder if this storyline is about her considering a gender change after the season; she’d make a good matchup for Jaquan ‘The Don’ Case, albeit 10 years later. Has it been that long?

  4. […] so we’re all clear here, panel one is not a carryover from yesterday. That is clearly some other player whom Frenzie Kenzie has just bowled […]
