If Big Baby Davis doesn't pursue a second career in professional wrestling, there is no justice in this world
Welcome to the first BAD of 2012. Hopefully your hangover's finally gone. I'll type quietly just in case it isn't.
Worst of the Weekend in Pictures:
It just wouldn't be a Worst of the Weekend in Pictures segment without Stan Van Gundy doing something goofy
Silly Josh Smith. You're not an actual hawk. You can't really fly.
Vince Carter's moments away from crapping himself
That's the same exact expression in every slow motion fight scene in Rocky
Welcome to the gun show. Free admission with your game ticket.
Frank Vogel would like a fistbump. Someone please help out, don't leave him hanging
Okay, we get it Josh, it's your first start. You don't need to act like you're trying THAT hard.
This is the most Tony Parker picture ever
Okay, who wants to go tell Jimmer he's playing defense wrong?
Uh, wrong sport, VDN...
Nationally Televised Games:
Thunder at Mavericks, NBA TV, 8:30pm: Man, these Mavericks kind of suck. Is it time to drag Mike Iuzzolino out of retirement? Dude was a straight up beast in NBA Jam.
All The Other Games:
Warriors at Suns, 3:30pm: So far this season, the Suns are averaging only 89 points per game. What the hell kind of twisted episode of the Twilight Zone did I wake up in this morning???
Wizards Generals at Celtics, 7:30pm: Didn't we just go through this? Rondo dropped a triple double, and the Generals continued to be the only winless team left in the league. This game stinks worse than a tire fire.
Magic at Pistons, 7:30pm: Ryan Anderson is averaging 20 points per game. I believe I speak for those of us who aren't Magic fans when I say "...who?"
Hawks at Heat, 7:30pm: Yes, the Hawks are 3-1. But have you seen their schedule so far? Two games against the Nyets, one against the Generals, and one against the Rockets. I've seen college teams play tougher preseason exhibition games.
Pacers at Nyets, 7:30pm: The Pacers are likewise 3-1, but are shooting 38.5% from the field so far this season. They have not cracked the 40% mark in any of their games so far. Worst in the league.
...And the Nyets are second-worst at 38.7%.
The NBA better burn all video evidence of this game the second the final buzzer sounds.
Craptors at Knicks, 7:30pm: I'd like to take a moment to recognize the Knicks' Josh Harrellson. Jorts was a TERRIBLE basketball player most of his time at the University of Kentucky, but suddenly started trying, got in shape, and learned how to rebound his senior year. And now he's gotten to start a game in Stoudemire's absence, and managed a double-double. Way to go, Jorts.
Spurs at Timberwolves, 8:00pm: I don't think anyone's ready to call the Timberwolves "good," but it's nice to see them be less bawful. Now, maybe if they had more pieces than just Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love to go with their assortment of scrub and bench warmers...
Bucks at Nuggets, 9:00pm:
I'm not sure how good the Bucks really are, but I DO know the Nuggets are on the third game of a back-to-back-to-back after splitting two consecutive games against the Lakers. That's a recipe for dead legs if I've ever heard one. Then again, I've never heard a recipe for dead legs. Chicken legs, maybe, but not dead legs. (Mmm... chicken legs...
Hornets at Jazz, 9:00pm: In news that should surprise absolutely no one, the Hornets are... not good. The stat I found most painful: they are shooting 15% from downtown so far. It's one thing to watch a brickfest, but there's something extra painful about watching missed three pointer after missed three pointer clang off the rim and result in long rebounds that usually go the other way.
