Thorn says he's going to explain these nuances to NBA refs before the season starts. This is where we come in. Having been trash talked to and taunted by every no-passin', K-Swiss-wearin', no-Right-Guard-usin' YMCA gym rat from here to Hell's Kitchen, this is a subject we know volumes about.

Taunt: Uh, George Mikan called. He wants his jump shot back.
Trash Talk: Your girl is easy.
Taunt: Excuse me, but when you get home tonight, will you check behind your headboard? I think I left my watch.

Taunt: Your mama's so fat, she cut her finger the other day and Haagen-Dazs came out.
Trash Talk: Damn, who cuts your hair, Ray Charles?
