ChrisQuinn

Wow. Creepy. And you can thank Basketbawful reader Patrick H. for filling up your tank of nightmare fuel. And if Quinn's intense and piercing gaze doesn't do it for you, there are plenty of other Miami Heat wallpapers to choose from. Admit it: Your life won't be quite complete until you have Mark Blount or Yakhouba Diawara plastered (electronically speaking) across your desktop. And as a nostalgic bonus, wallpapers featuring Shaun Livingstong and Marcus Banks are still available. Get them before they go away forever!

Someone needs to quickly photoshop this into one of the Men in Black posters.

No disrespect to Chris, but I laughed for 5 straight minutes after seeing his picture. He looks like he's trying to look tough on the picture, but he can't quite get the right look, so we a graced with this awesome picture that's immortalized into wallpaper glory. That my friends is unintentional comedy at its finest.

As a Heat fan, i've seen this before but it's still pretty damn hilarious every time.

I'm going to try to find you a video of Chris Quinn's creepy "Tobacco Free Florida" commercial so you can post it on here, it's even better than this.

wow...rudy fernandez must have really bruised his vagina, hes being pulled off the floor on a stretcher. that foul had barely any contact at all, ariza swung at the ball and barely touched fernandez; hes being assessed a flagrant2 and being ejected. total bullshit. yeah, it was a hard fall, but the foul was nothing. cmon ive seen ppl get up from harder falls than that. theres no way that fall required all the attention its getting. im prolly just drunkenly and angrily ranting now...but damn.

omg...i hate what the nba is becoming. i cant believe im saying this but sheed was right when he compared the nba to the wwe.

Dwyane Wade just put on one of the most epic performances in Heat history.

48 pts
12 assts
6 rebs
15-21 FG
5-6 3pt

3pt game tying shot at end of regulation
3pt one footer to win the game after a huge steal in 2 OT.

No one is playing better basketball than this man right now, NO ONE.

Anonymous, regarding the Rudy Fernandez foul by Trevor Ariza, I'd like to point you to my comment from the previous thread regarding flagrant fouls: "You know what I hate most about flagrant fouls and the new "wussification" of the league? They tend to hand out flagrant fouls based mainly on how a guy lands, rather than on whether it looked like the player who committed the foul actually had malicious intent or not. Sometimes players go up for wild shots and a guy makes a play on the ball and ends up fouling the guy, causing him to land awkwardly; but should the person committing the foul be extra penalized just because the guy on offense took such a wild, out of control shot to begin with?"

Tonight was a prime example of that. Fernandez goes up off one foot for a dunk and Ariza comes in to try to swipe at the ball, and even though it was definitely a foul (maybe even a flagrant 1 since he did hit him in the head), I don't see how that's a flagrant 2. Unfortunately nowadays it's all about how the player falls, not about the foul itself. The league really needs to just change the rules to state that the severity of a foul is solely determined by how the player falls afterward.

What really bugs me about these flagrant 2 fouls is that the refs actually have to review the plays on a video monitor at the scorer's table to make sure they don't throw out a player unnecessarily for mistakenly calling a flagrant 2 on something that wasn't in fact as malicious as the fall might have made it seem. Considering they go review the video and then hold up calls like the ones on Ariza and Davis, what exactly is the point of looking at the tape?

Speaking of looking at the tape, if anyone wants to see a hi-res replay of the incident, click here.

You're right Wild Yams, going for a break away lay-up is a "crazy" shot. Also, flying from the opposite side of the ball with no chance of blocking it and taking a huge swipe at it is a responsible play to make. I think the landing of the player should be considered in the decision process. It's not like the guy landed on banana peels or fell over out of clumsiness. Both players are going at full speed so even a little contact could lead to dangerous consequences, let alone, slapping the guy in the head and grabbing his wrist afterward. That was either a dirty play or a remarkably stupid one, either way it deserves the punishment. The douche bag didn't even try to see if Fernandez was alright afterward, he just skulked away trying to act tough. His lack of intention would have been much more believable if he showed some remorse and concern like Jordan Farmar did. Perhaps instead of taking their frustrations on an opponent who's in the air and can't protect himself, the Lakers could show some effort in the first 3 quarters, just a thought.

Sorry, but I'm going to disagree with the comments above about Ariza's ejection. He made an absolutely unsafe play and took a player out of the game. Great; his intent was to get the ball. So sorry he missed, but man up to the consequences of totally compromising Fernandez's safety. Ostensibly, my opinion is different than yours, but that's not what I tune into NBA games to see.

That said, I don't know what the by-the-book standards are for flagrant fouls, and the broadcasters do often reference a player's "intent". But I don't think it's wrong of the officials to punish players for a lack of safety.

Utah, Houston and Detroit are sleeping giants, first round dark horses of some proportion.

Quin will wake them.

@ Andrei

I'm a Blazers fan and I dislike the Lakers as much as anyone, but Ariza's foul was definitely not Flagrant 2 worthy. He made a play for the ball and was not intentionally fouling Rudy. It was a silly and dangerous play, granted. I don't even think he hit Rudy all that hard. Just hard enough for Rudy to lose balance and land badly. Not like Bynum's foul on Wallace that led to the collapsed lung. That was a dirty play. Ariza's was just unfortunate.

Back to the Quinn image, I think the best part is the "feel it LIVE" text next to his head. It just makes it all the more creepy.
