Only 10th seed? You should teach those suckers a lesson, Mr. Bawful!

Blogger Junior said...
Oh yeah, we have Mario Quadruples for Atlanta tonight

Acie Law, Randolph Morris, Solomon Jones and of course, the kings of the Marios, Mario "The Mario" West

Blogger Jarret said...
Seriously. 10th Seed? You're like Butler or Davidson. Or maybe a George Mason with more moxie.

Not trying to be a conspiracy theorist but look at the LA/Grizzlies game. Realistically the Lakers should have blown the Grizzlies out but they only won by 9. The Vegas spread was 11 or so might have been lower for certain places...he didn't get it off on time but they credit him the basket anyways. On top of that they only say they're going to review it but don't show any actual footage so fans can see for themselves.

I know its Kobe, but really why would he do that? Was he trying to get to the spread?

Why would they say theyre going to review it but then not show footage and then give them the point anyways?

Is this a Vegas influence in Stern's NBA?

Suns sign Dee Brown, Dragic could be headed to the Dee League for a stint...


It scares me a little that Washington cut Brown in favor of... gulp... Mike James and Javaris Crittenton. But hey... he can't be any worse than the current backup PG. Really. He can't. Neither could I.

Maybe Brown will get to wear #11 again, and then his website address will make sense again. "I invite everyone to check out my official website if you got love for your boy." -- DB.

It's nice to see the Association knew how to simmer some home cookin':


What about this nickname for Boris Diaw after the Wizards game : Diawful ? Kind of mascot for Bawful^^

Merry X-Mas

Glory to the unfairly low seeded Bawful. Surely your ballot will be stuffed. No one suspected fans AND a blog owner caring about a fake award!

I thought I would also mention that Robert Parish was on Mike and Mike this morning and said that his 86-87(?) Celtics would beat today's Celtics because they had a better bench.

I demand another post on the comically bad Celtics bench. I know they had the great Walton, who played for the love of the game, and Ainge at that point (?). But two guys a bench does not make.

"Of course we would have beaten these young guns of today. We were like statues, legends I say! Chiseled of marble by Michael Angelo himself was Larry Bird, and we, we were his squires. Living in loving servitude. Some nights I would dream of the day to come, wondering, sometimes aloud, to my wife, about if Bird would touch me during practice. Oh, the ecstasy I would feel! Of course my wife questioned my sexuality for a while after that, fortunately I knew that no man could resist the true basketball beauty, the greatness that was Bird. What a life.....I lived, for those years at the Celtics were the only time a Walton truly lived."

- Bill Walton

A. 10th. Seed. Seriously? I'm insulted on your behalf. Lord Mamba would be insulted on your behalf too, but you hate him, and he has his own probs today.....Anyway, merry Christmas! (And yes, I did vote, I'd list a tally, but I don't want to stat curse you) And now I must wish you luck, Celtics fan. As a Laker fan I'm just hoping for a good game. (hopefully we don't see the human victory cigar in this game, cuz that would mean my team lost, brutally)

enjoy the game, Lord Bawful.

Not to worry Mr. Bawful, you seem to be running away with it right now with a little more than 70% of the vote.

Merry Christmas Bawful, I give you my vote. Also, a Reggie Miller quote machine submission. Discussing the Kidd, Harris trade, the great quoter said "The trade has given Harris a new leash on life."

Watching the late game...a very distracted ref just stood in the way of a possible Dallas fast break and took the worst of it. Ouch!

wow, how about Greg Buckner against the Spurs? He played in almost 12 minutes of lacktion and score a suck differential of +2 with a 0-1 FG and a personal foul.

Anonymous Anonymous said...
Joakim Noah and C. Simmons had a 5 and 4 trillion respectively against the Hawks. Solomon Jones and Mario West had a Mario in return with 50 and 38 seconds of playing time. Robert Swift had a 5 trillion against the Wizards. Kris Humpries had a 35 second Mario while teammate Jake Voskhul had an 18 second Mario with a personal foul for a +1 suck differential.

"Verbal flopping"? Could be a word of the day. That is, if you can give some kind of indication for what that means.

Blogger lordhenry said...
I believe "verbal flop" already is a word of the day.....

Sorry about the celtics, bawful. THough, I think the celtics, like a resiliant movie franchise villain, will only come back stronger. The real test is to see how L.A. does in boston. If boston has the best record come playoff time, (which they likely will) then L.A. still needs a garden win, to get a trophy. Not that it matters, there is still over 1/2 a season of a$$holery to be played.....At least it was a great basketball game. (and I would still say that if boston had won)

It wasn't without consequence Christmas game for Virtus Bologna. Earl Boykins (168-G-76, college: E.Michigan) was scoreless in 17' with only a field goal attempted. The pointguard, in the past days, asked to come back home for 4 days to have some Holydays, but the team denied his request. So, his bad performance, was seen like a kind of strike.

Boykins - started likewise to the Usa after the game - and Virtus Bologna will part away in the next days. When agents and team staff will find a deal.

Take your pick--awful because of
(a)Earl's lackluster performance,
(b)it may have been intentional retaliation for not being allowed to go home for Xmas, or
(c)the Babel Fish translation?

Antoine Wright of the Mavs played 10 minutes for a +5 suck differential with 0-3 FG, 0-2 from the 3pt line with two personal fouls and one shot attempt blocked. Steve Novak of the Clippers returned the favor with a trillion.

The picture is very funny. I can't stop laughing.

Blogger chris said...
your favorite sun: is this basketball's version of "Operation Shutdown?" Granted, I think on that level, it has much less of an impact.

And man, if anyone witnessed the fail that was the Suckrament Kings on Sunday night...the commentators were pretty displeased with the lack of motivation as the home team proved to be a great rebound game for the slightly faltering world champs - a 45 point victory for Boston!
