I guess this must be the week for uncovering unintentionally hilarious Larry Bird commercials from the 80s. Check out this spot for the American Heart Association starring Larry Legend and the creepiest heart doctor you'll ever see. Who knew working on alternatives to bypass surgery could win you a place on Bird's pesonal All-Star Team.


And here I thought Larry hated doctors...


Random update: Here's an imaginary starting five for the Larry Bird honorary All-Stars: Creepy heart doctor guy, Kenny Rogers, the person who invented the bathroom door baby hanger, the man (and I know it was a man) who came up with the idea of equipping a car with a flamethrower, and this dude.

yeah that commercial confirms my belief that the 80s were the worst decade in human history.

Creepy doctor looks a lot like the younger brother of Dr. Jan E. Tor in Scrubs. Weird.

Lmao @ Dr. J just pounding at Larry while he's being held from behind. That's showing some real balls, up there with Carmelo's punch n' run

Notice how with all that fighting, no one really got hurt?

I went to an Atlanta Hawks playoff game (hey, I'm laughing with you) in 94 (Jordan's retirement year, and the Hawks won their division), and the crowd was catatonic until a fight broke out with the Heat, and then it was positively electric.

I'm for easing up on the no-fighting rules. No one gets hurt. Lots of heat, no fire. (Sorry, Rudy T, you're the exception that proves the rule.)

OK, maybe Laimbeer got hurt, too, but wasn't that a good thing?

For worst of the weekend when it comes up:

I'm sorry, but the Hornets only got 13 free throw attempts in the ENTIRE 4/25 game against the Mavs, in which they got 38?! Are you kidding me? Looks like a bit of home cookin' to me.

also for worst of the weekend, more evidence of the complete unfairness when it comes to dwight:

along with his blatant parking under the hoop and not being called for three seconds...

it's maddening, but not the reason why we're down in the series

Wait? Did Basketbawful just say "my Jazz" down below? Please. Say it ain't so. The Jazz are baby-eating evil. So evil. You're going to basketball hell with Bill Laimbeer, Bruce Bowen, and every NBA mascot.
