Well, the Washington Wizards Generals are a mess, aren't they?

Yes, teams try to downplay any spats and so forth, but really? That has to be in the top ten list of most bawful excuses, right?

In other news, Chairman Yi is back. Yi Jianlian's been called up from the D-League by the Mavericks.

Worst of the Weekend in Pictures:


"Come on! I play for this godawful team! Can't I get a break?!"



Marc Gasol... you just keep doin' what you do.



Paul Pierce has a headache from all the clanking sounds his shots make



Do you think Blake Griffin's dunk face is the same as his O-face?



"COME AT ME BRO"



Sad Stephen Jackson is sad



Sad Scott Skiles is also sad

Nationally Televised Games:

Bobcraps at Knicks, NBA TV, 7:30pm: Revenge game possibilities in place here? The Bobcraps' victory at New York last week is their only road win of the season, by the way.

All The Other Games:

Pacers at 76ers, 7:00pm: You have to love how the NBA works sometimes. A couple years ago, this matchup was horrific. Tonight? Legitimately compelling.

Timberwolves at Craptors, 7:00pm: It's been nearly eight years since the Timberwolves have won a game in Toronto. I mean, yeah, I get the Timberwolves have been kinda sucky, but really? Really??

Hawks at Nyets, 7:30pm: So... anyone want to place bets on which Hawks team decides to show up for this game? Meanwhile, Jeff Teague had this to say about their win against the Bulls: "Whatever we did -- we need to bottle it up and put it in a water bottle." Be careful, Teague. Panama Lewis might say something about that.

Pistons at Bulls, 8:00pm: The Pistons are averaging a measly 84.3 points per game. Do their games have a 35 second shot clock like college games?

Hornets at Nuggets, 9:00pm: You know, I'm starting to think that the Hornets might not be a very good basketball team...

Good news that Yi is coming back, he's my second favorite international player behind Omri Casspi.


At any rate, watching the Wizards fall apart makes me feel bad for John Wall and Nick Young. Both are really talented young players with a lot of potential but I don't think that potential is going to go anywhere if they keep playing in DC.

You would think that Rashard Lewis refusing to play would actually help the team, right?

Granger is out for Pacers. That's blessing in disguise.

Lot of it around. Like Mike Beasley for Wolves:
Ball movement picks up as Beasley sits out
http://www.startribune.com/sports/wolves/136915283.html
Rick Adelman ... remarked how the ball moved better offensively ...
... just why was that?
"Um," Wolves forward Kevin Love said, "Mike being out?"

And Maggette for Bobcraps. But that's not blessing in disguise, that's: Blessing. Period.

A late addition, but I just spotted this on Reddit and had to share:

So, I guess you're not going to go into detail about how the Hawks barnstormed the Bulls the very night after that Heat game? Your blog, your rules, but this does feel like you're playing favorites.

That's got to be La Bamba! They have burritos as big as your head, as well as terrifying murals of burrito-headed athletes, usually destroying Michigan at football. All over the midwest. Those were some pretty good burritos, though.

I dunno if somebody havent already discovered it. Even before season really started, I checked ESPN NBA column for updated rosters. In write-in teams list, I couldnot believe my own eyes - there were team named Milwaukee Sucks . At first I thought - my gosh, why did ESPN did it to them?! Then - maybe it had to do something with me not wearing glasses and the font being too small.
But damn, they deserved it...!

Onandblahblah-totally. It's interesting to see it when it's not all blurry and spinning around and such.

To Basketbawful writers,

I understand this blog isn't your job, and the squeezed schedule would be giving you more "work" had you chosen to keep up pace with it. But, there is so much glorious bawfulness going on that I'm truly disappointed as a fan at the lack of updates. I hope life will give you guys a break and spare you some time for the blog. And, as always, thanks for the effort.

There are so many good nicknames for teams, like the Cadavers, Craptors, and Generals. Well, I want one for Indy. When we're appropriately Bawful can we now be known as the Indiana Spacers?

Blogger Lord Kerrance said...
I agree with JJ. I check Bawful everyday for the WOTN and it's a bummer when they're missing. No accusations or anything; just want to let you guys know that I appreciate your work and I miss it when it's not here.

Blogger Wormboy said...
Uh oh. Now you've done it. You've precipitated a shit storm of "racism!" accusations with the E.T. common, a la Howard Cosell referring to Willie McGhee in 1982. If he weren't the nicest guy to ever play baseball, Willie would come and kick your ass.

Dan B, what... what is that?

Oh yeah, The Tank rolls, baby. Andrea Bargnani may be annoying, but Demar Derozan gave us the boost we needed.

No more daily B.A.D. and/or Worst of the night?
Really missing you guys, don't let Basketbawful die a slow death.

Anonymous Anonymous said...
Sigh - it was a good run but it looks like bawful may be about done, what with the sporadic content since the end of last season.

Too bad - one of my favorite daily reads during the NBA season.

Paul and other doom-and-gloomers -- Sorry for the lack of a BAD post last night, but it looks like the way my schedule is working out, I won't be able to do Tuesday night posts this season. Every other night is not a problem so you should be able to expect those regularly. Just for future reference.

Staying up to watch Nate Robinson nut punch your team. Not cool. Stupid gremlin

Anonymous Stockton said...
No WoTN again? Is it because the Jazz are winning? Are you an anti-jazz????

Kidding... miss your posts and delicate humor... keep it going as long as possible. See you soon.

@ Steph: How about the "Pacemakers?" My father has one, it's a serious insult to young men.

Problem is that they don't actually suck, they're just medium. A good team without a star. Now if they can just move the ball a little more and have Granger take fewer shots, they *might* get out of the first round.


Naw, just kidding. Same as last year: scrappy first round entertainment versus a contender.

Blogger kazam92 said...
Granger has been brutal. How do you shoot 30%????? That number is just impossibly bad. I would have cut him fro my Roto league if not for his steals numbers. 2-3 years ago I thought the guy was a shorter Durant
