"I want to curl up in your beard like it's a hammock and take a nap"
Some bullet points:
1) Damnit! We missed out on Andray Blatche's Lapdance Tuesday
at a Miami Beach club!
2) Boston is building a Bill Russell statue
. It is expected to be the Celtics' starting center in Game 3.
3) Seriously unsettling news for me: Vince Carter loves bowling, and even watches professional bowling on TV
. Vince, why do you have to do things to make me even consider liking you? You know how badly I want to hate you. Can't a cool baller seriously take up bowling? A lot of them do it, but other than Vinsanity, Chris Paul is the only guy who takes it seriously. And he's not even that good at it to be honest. (Good thing he's got that whole basketball thing to fall back on, you know.)Worst of the Night in Pictures:
In retrospect, Rajon Rondo's "roll around like Sonic the Hedgehog" defensive strategy was decidedly flawed(Also, this picture makes for a totally sweet album cover) Whenever I see Scott Brooks, I assume he should be closing a business deal at a TGI Friday's instead of coaching an NBA team The last time two bodies this large collided, the moon was formedNationally Televised Games:Hawks at Bulls, TNT, 8pm (Hawks lead series 1-0)
: I encourage you to go read Kelly Dwyer's piece on the NBA's most valuable player
. Then, especially since Mother's Day is coming up, go read Holly MacKenzie's piece on Derrick Rose thanking his mother
.Mavericks at Lakers, TNT, 10:30pm (Mavs lead series 1-0)
: I don't care if it was deadpanned. Kobe's "I'm not clutch" quote makes me smile.

Well played \m/
Just watched Kobe's ankle twist again... I think he just tripped and was too embarr-assed too admit it. Knee-jerk feigning. They're mad for it here in Europe.
Trip or not, it's obvious that he twisted it.
the series is far from over. lakers are great on the road and the mavs really don't play much better at home than on the road (had almost identical home/road records). of course i am just trying to stat curse the lakers.
co-worker keeps earnestly asking my friend who is the 2nd best player on the mavs. that's the thing about them, they don't really have a 2nd best player. just dirk and a bunch of guys who may get hot and beat you. mavs fans hope that one or two of them show up for any given game (last night, hello barea!).
funny thing, for all their reputation as chokers, mavs were actually the last team to come back to win a series after losing the first two games at home, back in '05. hope they can keep these lakers off that short list!
Sloan is gone...
Duncan & Pop say bye bye...
Now looks like the ZenMan is going fishing earlier...
End of an era (what was left of it)?
Ragib - Gee, it's like they were literally entitled for some reason? I can't think of why they'd have confidence in their back to back champion team. Anyway, Laker vacation footage has been coming in all season. Thanks for the memories, but after this year even I don't think they deserve to win.
Then you'll have Vince who is who we think he is where despite his freakish athletic talent is completely apathetic, has no will to win, and settles rather than challenges. Atlanta should change its name to the Vincibles, because they're pretty much the opposite of invincible.
Ladies and Gentlemen, your 2011 Atlanta Vincibles!
This is a great observation.
This Mavericks team is 85% warmed over garbage. I looks as if everyone on the Lakers is expecting for them to simply collapse onto themselves.
Yes. Yes you are. You are also missing the point. BAD is all about having an updated forum for the evening games, looking ahead instead of looking back, and throwing in some light humor and entertaining links as an added bonus.
Dan B is not your personal court jester, so go post on BDL if you want to complain about something not being funny.
And if you didn't at least snicker at the beard caption, you might want to check your ass for any sticks that might be lodged up there.
Crazy Pills out for game 3 actually HELPS the lakers."
Ron might be the only Laker player happy to see the back of P-Jax, he'll hope the next coach says "fuck the triangle" lets run something dumb ass over here can get his head around.
Anyone know why we don't see Bynum, Gasol, Odom, Kobe and Fish/Ron in crunch time? Sitting either Bynum or Odom seems crazier than, well, Ron Ron.
