Is that Lou Amundson, or just an extra from Michael Jackson's Thriller video?
Yes we missed a couple WOTN posts already. But we aren't mailing it in like we're tanking for a lottery pick. Life happens, especially this time of year. Bawful told me earlier today he was disappointed he didn't get a chance the past couple days to get any WOTN posts written. So don't worry, there's plenty of bad basketball to be made fun of this season, and we're planning on recapping as best as we can.
To make it up to you, here's some news: Michael Jordan's getting married! Again!
Next time he's in Vegas, he's betting the Under on how many years it lasts.
Worst of the Night in Pictures:
Already a WTF picture, but once you see Tony Parker's reaction to this in the background, you can't stop staring at him.
"Justin, you know you look like a damn fool, right?"
Washington DC -- Sucking the will to live out of its players since... when was the last time they were competitive??
"Ugh! It smells like old people in here!"
The Warriors celebrate their win with a spirited round of patty cake
Nationally Televised Games:
Mavericks at Thunder, TNT, 8:00pm:
The Mavs could become the first defending champs to start the season 0-and-3 since the 1969-1970 Celtics. I'm going to irrationally place absolutely all of the blame on Vince Carter and Lamar Odom. Is that cool with everyone? Okay, good.
As for the Thunder, all the talk today has been about the flare-up between Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook
during last night's game. KD tried to sweep things under the rug: "We're going to disagree sometimes, like I've always been saying. But I'm behind him 110 percent, and he's the same way with me. And you seen when we came on the floor we clicked and everything started to work from there." Uh, KD, Westbrook went 0-for-13 from the field in the game. I don't think "everything started to work..."
Knicks at Lakers, TNT, 10:30pm:
The battle of the losers of the Chris Paul Sweepstakes!
All The Other Games:
Nyets at Magic, 7:00pm:
I can hardly contain my excitement for the staggering battle of the big men in this game. Dwight Howard versus Johan Petro
Spurs at Rockets, 8:00pm:
Game #2 in Daryl Morey's Kevin McHale Coaching Experiment, and they're well rested while catching the Spurs on the second night of a back-to-back. This might be a legitimately interesting matchup. Then again, Kevin McHale coaching... I make no promises.
Nuggets at Trail Blazers, 10:00pm:
ESPN's John Buccigross
would like to remind us of this unexpected statistic: "Denver is 19-7 in the regular season since trading Carmelo Anthony, 3rd best record in the NBA (only Thunder and Bulls have been better)" I haven't seen very many Nuggets games since then (since I am in bed by 11pm Eastern, I don't catch many Western Conference team games unfortunately). However, that seems like a number that's due for a regression to the mean sometime soon, right?
Bulls at Kings, 10:00pm:
Boogie Cousins has only one thing to say
Haters gonna hate
