In non-playoff news, Andrei Kirilenko got a new tattoo. See if you can spot it in this picture:

It is unknown whether AK47 and Birdman Andersen intend to combine their bodies into one superfreak superbeing.

20110508-hawks-fans-white-paintHey, second dude from the right, I think you missed a spot


20110508-hawks-fanI'll give you points for creativity, Hawks fan. But aren't you afraid your team will mistake that for encouraging them to employ matador defense?

Nationally Televised Games:
Heat at Celtics, TNT, 7pm (Heat lead series 2-1): You know who's not impressed with Rondo's newfound ability to bend his arm in any direction? This guy:

Yes, I am stretching to find any reason to run this picture again

Thunder at Grizzlies, TNT, 9:30pm (Grizzlies lead series 2-1): It's flooding in Memphis. So don't be surprised if Tony Allen isn't stopping Kevin Durant tonight. He might be busy stopping water instead. (Seriously, I hope everybody stays safe down there!)

Was this pun intended?

Dooj -- Of course it was intended. I giggled like an idiot when I thought of it.

One of the most amazing tweets ever
, from Hardwood Paroxyism:

"You can tell James and Wade are starting to think Joel Anthony is a better dump-off pass target than Bosh. This is actually happening."

Epic.

Rondo blew the open layup, KG gassed, Ray Ray cold, dumb last shot in regulation, Posh Spice seals the deal in OT. Miami's really gonna win a title with this fugly iso dribble offense? Makes Atlanta's look respectable. I guess even bad ideas can work if you brute force it enough.

Come, now, steph g. NOTHING is uglier than Atlanta's offense. At least Bron and Wade *try* to get into the lane most of the time. Joe Johnson and Jamal Crawford dribble around aimlessly and then chuck up contested 20-footers.

Without a healthy Rondo.. The Celtics grind to a halt. And how did Garnett end up on Bron on that last play.. the Bostrich gets that tip because he's got Ray Allen trying to box him out, and, well, we all love Jesus Shuttleworth, but good luck with that one.

And is it just me or does Paul Pierce always, always wait WAAAAYYY too long to start his move in those situations? I age watching him hold the ball.

I got tired just watching Tony Allen guard Westbrook for four games tonight (1 + 3OT).

I literally turned down sex to watch that game. So worth it.

8 am for work tomorrow but had to watch this game, exhausting. luckily I witness Hollins doing a nosewipe-to-facepalm that made it all worth it

I was actually at the Mediterranean seaside for a 10-day vacation with my girlfriend, and I came back 6 days early to watch the playoffs (certainly not because she cheated on me with an Israeli dance choreographer)! No regrets. Super-awesome post-season.

What's with Rose and Westbrook catching the chuckeritis in these playoffs? You are point guards, read your job description.

Seriously if you have to take 25+ shots, you should at least be making half of them.

Blogger Wormboy said...
Bad call of the night. No way that charge call on Paul Pierce was kosher. LeBron slides in on the run, his body still moving laterally when Pierce collides with him? Horse shit.

Not to excuse the Celtics, but that was a David Stern's hand call.

And this is for the Grizz:

Man, somebody really needs to make a gif of this.

So it was all Barea's fault for the hard foul and Bynum is such a nice guy...

Blogger Ragib said...
The box score is a funny thing - often it makes a valuable player seem worse than he really is (like Joel Anthony) and it also makes someone who played poorly seem great.

Russell Westbrook was an example of the latter. The last 5 minutes of the 4th, Kevin Durant got two touches, TWO. And he passed off one of them because Westbrook left him with that pass in a double team. The entire OKC offence consisted of Westbrook, the PG, not even looking to know where his teammates are, and dribbling around trying to play 1on1 against his defender. He ended up taking a huge amount of difficult shots down the stretch, many of which KD should have been taking. If Westbrook was playing his role, OKC could have taken this in regulation.

@Dan B:

1) AK-47's tattoo is horrible. The idea isn't horrible, and dragons are cool and all, but I mean, both of the wings look like giant bulging scrotums. Who wants giant scrotums on each scapula? THAT GUY!

2) In light of the recent firefight in Greece, maybe the "AK-47" nickname needs to go. But I think this new tat gives us some material. Like: DragonBallz?

Umm.. not that I'm an expert on the Oklahoma City Thunder, but every time ever I've seen them play, this is what Westbook does. He's a "point guard" in the sense that he brings the ball up the floor and has it in hands at the start of the play, not in the sense of initiating an offense and looking to set up his teammates.

No, marriage is why they invented the fleshlight. The only time in five years that I've turned down the sex offer was from a gay gentleman that probably had a higher BAC than the price of gasoline.

About the AK tatoo... I looked at the picture before reading and though "I didn't knew Nigel Tufnel had such a horrible... oh wait."

Anon - Sadly, unless Nigel also happens to have a L80 Paladin, I don't think the connection can be made on hair alone.
