"Hey Baron, need a hand(job)?"
So, just four games into his career as a Bullet, and Josh Howard has torn his ACL
and is out for the rest of the season. I can only assume he's currently furiously scouring the phone book looking for a shady doctor to hook him up with medicinal marijuana. Can you blame him? It takes a little while to fully recover from an ACL injury like this. The Bullets almost certainly won't pick up his $11mil option next season, so he'll be an unrestricted free agent, and who will want to spend money on an uncertain knee like this? Wait a second... this is the Bullets team. They'll probably resign him without second thought and try to find a way to give him more
But hey, at least his knee isn't made of bendy straws and painter's tape, unlike Tracy McGrady.
Also, we finally have definitive evidence as to exactly why the Kings suck: a decided lack of man-love
!)Worst of the Night in Pictures: Yes, I fully realize we already posted this picture. That's not going to stop me from posting it again!! This fan hit a halfcourt shot for $10,000. Man, even the fans can score against the Pacers. "67 points?! Damn! I hope that's a typo..." This boring-ass picture of Kim Hughes should help you further appreciate just how entertaining Mike Dunleavy was I'm just going to ask it -- where the hell is Keith Hernandez? "Man, it's weird not having to hide under this towel in embarrassment!"Nationally Televised Games:Lakers at Grizzlies:
Sigh. If only we could hop into that Hot Tub Time Machine and go back to a month or two ago. You know, before Memphis started to stink like a college dorm room mini-fridge at the end of the year.All The Other Games:Hornets at Crabs:
Hopefully this game does something to settle the Darren Collison vs. Chris Paul debate. (If Collison keeps it up, could he be valuable trade bait in the summer? Hard to devalue him by keeping him as a backup if he keeps performing.)Bricks at Celtics:
Oh man. Nate Robinson in a revenge game
against the Bricks? Knee-Mac is already hurt again? Woo! This is almost making me forget about how old and beat up the Celtics are!Timberwolves at Heat:
I feel about as confident about the Heat in this game as I did about the Bobcats last night.Frail Blazers at Nyets:
Ugh, the Nyets
. Why don't they just replace the team logo with a picture of a facepalm?Suns at Thunder:
Alright, finally a legitimately good game!Pistons at Kings:
...And this one brings us right back down to Earth with some super sloppy basketbawful.76ers at Warriors:
Oh, hell. Well, at least we'll have some funny Don Nelson pictures to post tomorrow if we're lucky.
