Darko jersey
Best Christmas gift ever.

The Memphis Grizzlies are auctioning off the jersey Darko Milicic ripped in half the other night! Oh yes they most certainly are:

MEMPHIS, December 9, 2008 — When the Memphis Grizzlies said that they were going to provide fans with the opportunity to bid on one-of-a-kind team memorabilia as part of their Online Auction Series, they weren’t kidding. On the auction block starting December 11 at 9 a.m. is the game worn jersey that Darko Milicic ripped in last night’s 109-97 win over the Houston Rockets.

Darko Milicic did his best Incredible Hulk impersonation during the third quarter of the Grizzlies second consecutive home victory last night. The remnants of the jersey, which include a rip down the center that is more than a foot and a half long, will include a personalized autograph from Milicic addressed to the highest bidder.

All proceeds from the online auction benefit the Memphis Grizzlies House at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Grizzlies House has the capacity to serve up to 100 families each night and provides a free, safe and comfortable alternative to staying in a hotel.
I want it, I want it, I want it! (Even if, as J.E. Skeets noted, Darko was more "Hulk Hogan" than "Incredible Hulk.") Find out how you can get this for me here, or use conventional methods: e-mail auctions@grizzlies.com or call (901) 205-1254. I promise if you get it for me, I'll never wear anything else.

[Thanks to Kevin for the head's up.]

"Darko was more "Hulk Hogan" than "Incredible Hulk.""

Anyone else feel compelled to refer to him as Thunderlips now?

8 points on 4-10 shooting and 4 missed 3s... right. Though I guess Ariza did no better statwise and radmanovic didn't even play

I'm torn on the Suns trade. On paper, and even by thought everything works well for the Suns. And now I don't have to look at Bobcats' box scores anymore for my fantasy team. The Suns starting 5 looks strong and defined (especially with how Barnes is performing as a certified 5th banana), rather than the positional mish-mash confusion of the past.

I've made my fair share of "Bell flopping" and "Diaw is a giant flopping vagina" jokes, but there's still something inherently disappointing about the trade. Like officially cutting the head off the SSOL Suns, and final transition into the no-fun Suns that will still probably lose to the Spurs in the playoffs.

From the official site: http://auctions.nba.com/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/ProductDisplay?prrfnbr=100556925&prmenbr=51136034&aunbr=100903635

The winning bidder of this truly one-of-a-kind item will receive a personalized autograph from Milicic. Darko is in his second season with the Grizzlies after spending the previous four years splitting time between Orlando and Atlanta.

That´s why the Grizzlies signed Darko! They´ve must confused him with someone else!
