The Story Of Elevator Ernie Johnson, And A Shirt You Need To Buy

Tuesday, May 26, 2009


Ernie Johnson is one of the nicest, most genuine people you will ever meet. Not only that, but he subscribes to the tenet that this site has survived on over the past three years. If you can't make fun of yourself, who can you make fun of?

Well, Ernie did just that when looking back at old footage of himself in a makeshift dunk contest, and a clothing company has even brought back his famous shirt from that night. Here's the background....



Great story, and the shirt you see above is not only available now, but a portion of proceeds even go to The Lymphoma Research Foundation (the disease EJ began battling in 2003).

I think Ernie is my favorite on the Inside the NBA show. I've got to get my paws on one of these shirts.
