I think we found a guy who's an even bigger Rajon Rondo fan than me...
Pretty much the most bawful sentence
I can remember reading: "Former Memphis guard Roburt Sallie cut from Spanish team for concealing that he was taking penis enlargement pills."
Also, Jay Caspian Kang's "Person of Interest" series continues with a nice look at Jeremy Lin
. I have to say, I am fully on the Linsanity bandwagon. I watched the Lakers/Knicks game the other night while I was texting with my girlfriend who loves college ball but doesn't care at all about the NBA. It took everything I had in me to not constantly say "WOAH, you should have seen that spin move into the paint Lin just did!" He's taken one of the bawful trainwreck teams and made them fun to watch again. I don't even care so much if they win or lose. I'm just happy they're entertaining.
Worst of the Weekend in Pictures:
Linsanity, everybody. Linsanity.
Rick Adelman tries to telepathically will the ball into the net
Really feeling bad for Paul Silas at this point, you guys
I want to hire Stan Van Gundy to follow me around and give thumbs up or thumbs down to everything people say to me
Randy Wittman's only been on the job for a few weeks, and the Generals have already driven him mad
Hey, shouldn't you guys be saving this action for Valentine's Day?
Nationally Televised Games:
Timberwolves at Magic, NBA TV, 7:00pm:
Our resident documenter of all things lacktion Chris mentioned he was considering going to a restaurant called Rubio's for dinner tonight. It got me thinking... In honor of Ricky Rubio, Rubio's prices should all end in prices like $4.90, so when they give you your food and you pay with a five, they're dishing out dimes.
Meanwhile, according to ESPN's Chris Palmer
: "It's waaay early but injuries will be the only thing preventing Ricky Rubio from becoming the league's all-time assist leader."
What?? I'm sorry, but what?? Methinks Chris Palmer might be jumping to conclusions just a little bit.
Suns at Warriors, NBA TV, 10:30pm:
Both of these teams are actually playing quality basketball right now. Am I dreaming? Did someone slip something in my coffee this morning?
All The Other Games:
76ers at Bobcraps, 7:00pm:
The Bobcraps have struggled lately, averaging just 77 points and 37 percent shooting in their last six games. And now they get to play one of the best defensive teams. I'm sure this one will be just THRILLING to watch.
Jazz at Hornets, 8:00pm:
Well, if you're going to be doing a back-to-back-to-back stretch all on the road, I guess New Orleans is a pretty good place to go. An easy W if you even halfway show up AND delicious food. BRB, Googling cajun food recipes...
Heat at Bucks, 8:00pm:
The Heat need to win this one to avoid a season sweep. Yes, you read that right.
Clippers at Mavericks, 8:30pm:
The last time the Clippers beat the Mavericks when Dirk Nowitzki was in the game? 2003. Yes, that is nearly a decade. Just for a little refresher if you've already forgotten what the Clippers used to be like.
