Happy Gameday, and Happy Thanksgiving Crimson Crossover readers. It's gameday, and the Tide are taking on Alabama Alum Steve Prohm and his Iowa State Cyclones in the Battle 4 Atlantis. Join the Gameday Open Thread for all the turkey and tourney fueled conversation.
What with the holiday and all, I thought I'd ask: What part of the Thanksgiving feast is each Bama Basketball player? Here's a few of mine:
Kira Lewis: The Turkey. It ain't Thanksgiving without the turkey, and it ain't a game without Kira. He's the centerpiece of the whole meal.
Herbert Jones: Sweet Potato Casserole. This is my favorite dish of the feast. I put sweet potato casserole on my dinner plate, but I put some on the dessert plate too. In the same way, I always want Herb out there.
John Petty: Green Bean Casserole. A green bean casserole is essential, but its easy to get the different elements out of balance. You need green beans, cream of mushroom soup, and everything else all working at the same time. Petty is at his best when he's got his shots falling as well as good defense going. Gimme three pointers and crispy onions all day long.
Javian Davis: Dressing/ Stuffing. We can't resolve the dressing vs. stuffing debate today, but let's just say we need a little bit of both from Davis. A good rebounding game would be great dressing for the feast, but it would be nice for him to be stuffing away a few baskets as well.
Alex Reese: Mac and Cheese. Some folks will say mac and cheese is not a vegetable. Spare me. It needs to be out there.
Jaden Shackelford: Gravy. Shack has proven he will shoot from anywhere, and likewise I will put gravy anywhere. Gravy on the turkey? Of course. Gravy on the dressing? You know it. Gravy on the green bean casserole? Bet. Gravy on the sweet potato casserole? Hey, shooters gotta shoot.
Beetle Bolden: Cranberry Sauce. You need some cranberry sauce on your plate. There's no debate about this. Find a way to work it in. Cranberry sauce brings energy and livens everything up, especially if it hits a couple threes.
