Cheers, Basketbawful fans! Recently I finally decided to get off my lazy ass and learn a bit more about audio and video as my duty as Chief of Internet Operations. So I added a tool to my already dangerous Internet arsenal, the animated gif, which will be used heavily in this post. Besides, some of us have the un-luxury of having YouTube blocked at work, so how else can we use up that precious bandwidth? In 90's Internet style, (I will, however, spare you from the embedded and unstoppable MIDI), may I present to you the 2008-09 NBA Animated Worsties Edition. And in true AnacondaHL stream of consciousness style, I will throw in some random facts about the season.October:
Brook Lopez had more regular season dunks
than LeBron James.November:
The playoffs FG% leader of those qualified was Marcin Gortat
.December:I was inspired to slightly modify this next pic:Lets see that again at another angle!
Shaq may be right saying he makes FTs when they count, as his 08-09 clutch FT%
was 72%, compared to 59.5% overall and 52.8% for his career. January:
Candyman Lamar Odom was resigned for good reason: He produced the third most net points
, ahead of Dwayne Wade and Kobe, and behind King Crab and Chris Paul. February:
Darius Songalia played better defence
than Yao. Oddly, Jason Kidd also ranked high this year on Net defense on/off. The Vanilla Godzilla is still a beast.March:
Stephon Marbury's Hall of Fame probability is an uncanny 19.81%
. Obviously, basketball-reference hasn't figured out a metric to adjust for career-ending crazy and Internet webcasts. Ron Artest's HoF probability is now 0.61%. Zach Randolph is at 0.49%.April:Cleveland?!
