Since the NBA Finals are ending tonight and LeBron-Mania is about to start reshaping the laws of nature, here's a video compilation of some of King Crab's worst momenets.

SEE LeBron chuck up airballs.

WATCH as The King gets his ankles broken.

LAUGH at every blown dunk, posterization and turnover.

Nice. The only thing missing from that clip is the high school player who dunked on him. Ahhh...one more day before wild speculation begins.

Seeing the retro-dressed not-so-purple Paupers (ROYALS COLORS REPRESENT!!!) not get pwn3d by King Crab was a pleasant surprise.

Because I have seen the Kings get stomped on by the lead crustacean. In person.

CAPTCHA: "fledex," i.e. "Antoine Walker should've considered shipping his payments via FledEx to appease the Nevada gaming commission."

Between the resolution of the clips and the soundtrack that's one of the worst videos I've ever seen.

There have been 16 game 7s in the NBA Finals. Celtics have won 16 titles. If the basketball gods are of the Adrian Monk variety, this one should go the Celtic's way.

*stat curse negation follows*

LAKERS IN 7!! LAKERS WILL WIN CHAMPIONSHIP! LA ALL THE WAY!

Getting dunked on by Ostertag is the lowlight to anyone's career.

I remember that first one, the air ball in the 05-06 season when the Cavs only had a two point lead late in the game. Thankfully, after James made the second, Big Z hit the two free throws late to ice the game and bail him out.

Contributing to the stat curse - Doc Rivers is 1-10 on closeout games on the road (the one win was in 2008 against Detroit).

One things for sure. A player from each team (Bynum and Pierce) have pulled Joe Namath-like predictions. So both teams will lose.

This is GOLD. Thanks Bawful for stimulating my still intoxicated brain this afternoon.

There are an awful lot of stat curses going on...can we get an accurate, complete count of them all? I've lost track.

I DARE someone to do the "big balls dance" with time left on the clock in game 7.

Sheed? Kobe? Come on guys, don't let me down! The big balls curse won't be denied!

Bawful:
1) Based on this and on this, this series is quite similar to Rockets-Knicks 1994, with the Rockets being equivalent to the Lakers.
2) Game 3 winner is 10-0 in the series after starting 1-1.
3) PJax's 47523-0 or whatever record winning game 1
4) Something obvious about Rasheed Wallace sucking

Blogger chris said...
Bawful: Remember Wheelchair's "This series isn't going back to LA" proclamation? Remember the Zen Master's only advice for his charges in Game 5, that "The C's know how to lose in the 4th quarter"?

That's two right there. :D

Is it possible to stat curse a stat curse? If so, I hope I just did.
WV: nommit- what zombies will do to a brain.

I returned home to LA last night, just in time for this Game 7 craziness. So I figured, fuck it, I'm gonna go down and watch tonight's game at the ESPNZone across the street from Staples Center. That way if there's a riot, I can give accurate reporting for everyone here :)

Also Glen Davis' "I can’t wait. I can’t wait to step up on the floor and win here in L.A."

Unintentional dirty quote from the Mexico-France game- "I'm not sure he deserved it (yellow card), but the ref pulled it out and banged him with it."

Blogger Sid said...
Man, at the 8 min mark, Mexico had a clear breakaway 4 on 1, and that Vela just smacked a volley 40 ft high. Hate watching selfish football.

On a side note, this is one of the few places I can say this and not be smacked, Soccer needs backfield violation, and maybe shot clock too.

@Yams:

Can you give us minute-by-minute updates a la Evil Ted after game 4? I'd be curious as to what goes on at ESPNZone in LA during game 7...

Blogger Wild Yams said...
AK Dave - I'll do my best, but I don't have a smartphone (just an iPod Touch), so any posting I do will be reliant on a wifi signal.

I will say this, having lived here my whole life, the reputation that LA has blase fans is not true, not when it comes to the Lakers. The Staples seats are so outrageously priced that they usually end up going to people who clearly don't care that much about the Lakers and are instead just using the seats to schmooze out of town clients or whatever, and this perpetuates the stereotype. But out in places where the admission is free, believe me the fans can be pretty rabid. I'm getting there a few hours early just to make sure I'm able to actually get in, cause I expect there to be a few thousand people down there who can't get into the game.

Wild Yams- if you haven't heard the news, be glad you live in LA.

I'm hearing reports of floor seats going for $50,000 to $85,000 each with a complimentary cup of David Stern's semen.

Final, some Bawful news: Dalembert to Sacramento for Nocioni and Hawes. Phili's in official rebuilding mode. How's this 2010/2011 line-up for the Sixers: Holiday, Iguodala, Nocioni, Brand, and Speights. Good thing you have baseball and hockey, Phili fans.

Blogger Wild Yams said...
One of my good friends has season tickets and he's going to the game. Not floor seats or anything, but he's in the lower bowl in one of the corners so they're pretty good seats. I'm jealous as hell, naturally.

Anonymous jj said...
as a pistons fan and with philly entering complete rebuilding mode, is it very wrong to root for the following deal?

tay + #7 for brands contractross + #2 (which in detroits should equal d. cousins)

I don't think I saw Sean May's block of King Krab, which is a shame. Remember - this is the same Sean May that was benched for "unsightly fatness", as this site once claimed.

Anonymous Bryan said...
I had a buddy sell his season tickets in the upper bowl for $1000 a piece to tonights game. Hope the game doesnt disappoint for the price these 20,000 or so ppl paid. StubHub has 4 courtside seats going for $60,000 a ticket right now. Crazy!!

The LeBron video is definately missing this gem:

pwn'd

Anonymous E said...
Yup, in all of LeBron's 7 years it only amounts to 5 minutes of footage consisting of his bad moments. I think that says a lot more good things about him than bad.
