If you told me this picture was Photoshopped, I would believe you
Another week of life, another week of bad basketball to document.
When browsing through the weekend's pictures, I saw this photo of
Bullets "surely-soon-to-be-former" coach Flip Saunders:
Nice open shirt and plunging neckline, Flip.
Now, is it just me or is this picture missing something? Doesn't it just seem like he should be rocking exposed chest hair and a gold chain and medallion?
Hold on while I fire up Photoshop...If this doesn't sum up the Celtics' lackadaisical approach the past few weeks, nothing does This picture makes me want to punch Sean Paul This picture makes me want to punch
There. That's better. It's subtle and understated, but looks right at home, doesn't it? (Thankfully your computer can't transmit scents, or you would be overwhelmed by a mix of cheap aftershave and old man funk.)
Alright, now let's get to the rest of the ridiculous pictures. A lot of material to work with this weekend.
Worst of the Weekend in Pictures:
Vinsanity Vag Carter. Or sprain his toe. Aww, how sweet. They're awkwardly dancing while holding hands! Aww, how sweet. They're awkwardly dry humping! Chairman Yi approves of these displays of man love Iquodala must really like that McDonald's ad "Oh my God, we even (gasp) played defense and still lost!!!" "What?"Nationally Televised Games:Nuggets at Mavericks:
As noted in the Stats LLC game preview, "Nowitzki will try to avoid scoring fewer than 20 in five straight games for the first time since a six-game stretch Nov. 8-15, 2000." Well, I guess they'll be fine if Rodrigue Beaubois can drop another 40 points, right? (clears throat)All The Other Games:Raptors at Bobcats:
Things don't look so great right now for the Craptors. But hey, it's the Eastern Conference. They don't even have to finish at .500 to make the playoffs.Spurs at Nyets:
I am, for the moment at least, retiring my use of AnacondaHL's fantastic facepalming Nyets logo. It's been bad luck for us lately. We can still hope for a tie with the '72-'73 Sixers at 9 wins
, right? (Not to mention the Timberpoops are still on track to have one of the 20 worst seasons in Association history as well! Yes!)
Meanwhile, where in the hell has this Spurs team been all season?? Even with Tim Duncan's play resembling a mummy in slow motion compared to just a couple years ago, they're playing by far their best basketball of the season. I thought Manu's last couple of weeks were an aberration, but he's keeping up the pace, and the team is peaking at the right time. I just don't know if they can keep up that pace.Lakers at Hornets:
Hornets coach Jeff Bower said "We understand the need to compete and prepare and play the game and build some momentum." Uh, momentum for what? Hitting the golf course a few weeks earlier than the teams going to the playoffs? Or I guess in Chris Paul's case, the bowling lanes.Knicks at Jazz:
As noted by Basketbawful reader Stockton in the comments, "Today's games features the Utah Jazz vs Utah Lottery Pick." (Fun fact about the Jazz: they were only 2 games over .500 as of January 8th, yet they're now 48-26, and we might as well go ahead and make that 49-26...)
