Since I posted shortly after Bawful's latest post, all Chicago-area fans, make sure you scroll down for info on Bawful's Game 2 party.

Worst of the Weekend in Pictures:

Nationally Televised Games:
Hawks at Bulls, TNT, 8pm (Series tied 0-0): Starting point guard for the Chicago Bulls? Derrick Rose. Starting point guard for the Atlanta Hawks? ...Jeff Teague. Allow Mr. Philip J. Fry to speak on my behalf:


"Oh, snap!"


Mavericks at Lakers, TNT, 10:30pm (Series tied 0-0): Everyone seems to be in agreement that this will be a closely-contested series. So why does that instantly make me think this thing will end in 4 or 5 games just because nobody is ever right about this stuff?

Hawks up by 10 in the second quarter. But really pretty different than watching Memphis go on top of OKC. Atlanta features guys dribbling the ball for over 7 seconds and then jack jump shots that TODAY are falling against the Bulls.
If Bulls just whether Atlanta's hot start they'll be ok I think.

Can anyone tell me a difference between Chicago this year and the Cavs the previous two years?

LeBron played better those two years than D-Rose has thus far in the playoffs this year.

Who's on board for the coming Atl-Mem finals? It'll be a ratings powerhouse!

I'll go out on a limb and predict that Dallas will not win this game or series getting outscored in the paint by the "Twin Towers" of Derek Fisher and Shannon Brown.

I would be if it weren't for a pretty good chance for a DAL-MIA rematch. My god I can already imagine the 2 straight weeks of whining. Basketbawful at it's finest hour.

The home-cooking sure is strong in the LA - Dallas game. Dallas can't buy a foul

What's funnier, Boozer's custom of going up weak and screaming "EEEEYYYYYY!" or Noah jumping up and down and throwing a temper tantrum like a 5 year old?

COY curse is in play.

Don't tell me there's going to be a lockout, please...

That LAL-DAL game was shaping up to be a fantastic finish then a Pau Gasol foul on one end while ignoring the Kidd hold on Kobe the next possession. I swear refs know how to ruin everything!!

Not sure about Atl, but Mavs-Grizz in the West Finals is looking really good right now.

I'll admit, Kobe going hero mode actually kept the Lakers in the game. But the stinkfest of Andrew Bynum the entire game and Gasol's epic failures at the end of the game are going to kill them dead.

Is it too late to give Memphis a retroactive Executive of the Year award? That deal is now paying dividends for

For all of the crap Miami is getting, they are clearly the only team that knows how good they are and are actually playing like it.
OKC got a bad matchup (but Westbrook stinking it up didn't help), D-Rose is starting to get exposed against better teams, and the Lakers, well, there were those that thought losing at home to the Hornets would be a wakeup call (uh huh).

BTW, Kobe Byrant, 36 points, 0 assists. Maybe that's why Pau Gasol never saw the ball coming to him.

And if I were voting for the MVP, I'd take away Derrick Rose's vote. Twisting the ankle on the final play when it was over? Seriously? I hope they hold the presentation in his hospital room after the surgery, after of course the Hawks eliminate the Bulls.

Ok, I feel a little better now.

lol that is so true. At least at the time of the award presentation, LeBron was still in great standing. This could be the most awkward MVP presentation ceremony since Dirk's.
