I knew they both went to the same college, but I guess they're closer than I thought

Some good news for you today. Andrei Kirilenko is interested in coming back to the NBA next season. That's great news -- we're a little short on our quota of ugly guys with awesome nicknames.

Worst of the Night in Pictures:

Everything you need to know about the Generals/Bulls game summed up in one picture

Jermaine O'Neal tries to do us all a favor. Also, LL Cool J approves.


Nationally Televised Games:

Knicks at Grizzlies, TNT, 8:00pm: A Mike D'Antoni team has been playing something resembling defense lately? Did I wake up in an episode of the Twilight Zone again?

Magic at Warriors, TNT, 10:30pm: Kwame Brown is out for at least three months with a torn pectoral muscle.  The Warriors are doomed!


A few thoughts. First, of course he hurt himself fouling. Now, obviously, their only hope now is to sign Greg Ostertag to replace him. (My fingers are crossed so hard, you guys) And finally Trey Kerby made, in my opinion, the greatest possible joke about this situation: "Did you know -- Kwame Brown tore his pectoral muscle patting himself on the back for how great his post defense is in practice."

All The Other Games:

Bobcraps at Hawks, 7:30pm: Al Horford is out for at least three months with a torn pectoral muscle. Wait, didn't I just type that? (looks up) Yes, Al Horford has a similar injury to Kwame. Let's hope the similarities end there. Anyway, the Hawks just got even more Hawksy.

Pistons at Bucks, 8:00pm: Who's ready for a shootout??? Neither of these teams! The final score has to be something like 78-75, right?

Cavaliers at Suns, 9:00pm: Cleveland's seven-game road trip continues. A nice little stat: Antawn Jamison has lost eight consecutive games against the Suns. However, to be fair the first six of those were while he was with Washington, so those probably shouldn't count.

I guess I need to apologize to BJ Mullens. I thought he would never make a team in the NBA. Turns out he doesn't totally suck.

Mark Jackson in full "Hack-a-Shaq" mode. Did it to the Clipper's Jordan and now to Dwight Howard.

BTW is Shaq the complete opposite of Funny or what?

Shut up Paul, shut up forever. I love Shaq.

Oh, Tony Allen. Don't ever change.

I'm not sure why he was playing D with a closed fist, but I find the picture of Jermaine punching Vince Carter really, really funny. I'm literally cracking up. The only thing that beats this is when Bowen jump kicked Wally Szczerbiak (definitely had to look up how to spell that one).

Howard's 39 FT-s must be a record or something. It's like 2 times more than the whole warriors team. Good thing he clanked nearly half of them. There was a word for it, I mean more points from FTs than FG-s...Dantley? Well, this was some MAN SIZED (near) dantley. 24 vs 21. 3 shy of a real thing. Anyways, this was ridiculous.

We're gonna talk about Tony Allen right?

Those 39 free throw attempts are a record. That number is the new maximum FTA a player has taken in a game, surpassing Wilt Chamberlain's old record of 34.

Oh. So that's how the Celtics play defense.
