This is probably an important signal to know, assuming that you're going to watch tonight's Lakers-Jazz game. After all, as everybody and his or her third cousin has been pointing out lately, Utah commits more fouls than any other team in the league. The best analogy for how the Jazz play defense would be E. Honda's "Hyaku Retsu Harite!" move* from Street Fighter II.

The handchecking signal is pretty easy to recognize. It's just the universal "Talk To The Hand" gesture. Alternately, the referee could simply pretend that he's firing a repulsor ray out of his hand, ala Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man. Screaming something like "Avengers assemble!" is entirely optional.

handchecking

*Hyaku Retsu Harite means "Hundred Hand Slap." Shame on you for not knowing your obscure Asian video game translations. All your base are now belong to me.

there is something really wrong with your blog if your next edition of wotn/wotw doesn't feature john paxson before anybody else.

except for trades with isiah, is there anything that this guy didn't lose ? lost on garnett, lost on gasol, lost on kobe and now he lost on mike d. add to that the fact that kobe and mike d WANTED to come to the bulls.

this guy (paxson) is the definition of a loser. makes me wonder how the hell he didn't lose his job yet ....

What the hell is going on with this round? No one can win on the road except for a lucky win by the Pistons. And it's not just the Celtics, the Hornets blew out Spurs twice at home and are about to be blown out twice on the road. Where is the sense in this? Why the hell does it happen?

"All your base are belong to us" I'm still laughing about that one!

OMFG, dude, you are like 1/2 Bball nerd, 1/2 amazing to have pulled THAT one out right after the E. Honda special move analogy. You should write for Leno or something, man. Where do you come UP with this stuff?

See if you can work in the Capcom 30-extra life code into your blog. I'd be truly impressed then.
