Kevin must have just looked at himself in a mirror
Important reading: Jonathan Abrams' "An oral history of the Malice in the Palace
The best part?
"Bill Laimbeer didn't seem to be particularly bothered by it. He was kind of nonplussed by the whole thing."
Worst of the Night in Pictures:
Pistons owner Tom Gores: "Hey look! We scored 68 points tonight! That's good, right?"
Well, how would YOU react if you suddenly grew a third arm?
Free piggyback rides with every victory!
Here We Stay! (sorry, I should have posted this under Best of the Night...)
Nationally Televised Games:
Bulls at Spurs, ESPN, 9:00pm: Derrick Rose has apologized for letting down the fans
and missing a free throw Tuesday night and killing Free Big Mac Excitement
. Yes, this actually happened. No, this is not satire from The Onion.
All The Other Games:
Thunder at 76ers, 7:00pm:
The last time the Sixers played, they held the Pistons to 31.6% shooting. Pretty sure the Thunder could shoot better than that playing with those tiny ass rims they use at carnival basketball games to keep you from winning stuffed animals.
Wizards Generals, 7:00pm:
Breaking news: Andray Blatche wore Uggs to the DMV
Warriors at Hawks, 7:30pm:
After getting pummeled Tuesday night, Mark Jackson had this to say about his Warriors: "This is not our brand of basketball." Okay then. So what IS their brand of basketball? Are they some generic knockoff brand? Are they the basketball equivalent of someone buying you a Rolecks watch?
Bucks at Celtics, 7:30pm:
Just look at all the similarities! Both teams ended long losing streaks in their most recent games. And both were won on last-minute plays. And both teams kind of suck.
Bobcraps at Pistons, 7:30pm:
Mother of God. The only offense is in this game will be the way it offends viewers.
Cavaliers at Knicks, 7:30pm: Linsanity is now New York City street art
Craptors at Hornets, 8:00pm:
Dwane Casey on his Toronto squad: "Basketball plays and basketball decisions have to get better." So in other words EVERYTHING has to get better. Duly noted, Coach.
Mavericks at Grizzlies, 8:00pm:
Zach Randolph participated in the non-contact portion of the Grizzlies' Monday practice. Z-Bo!! Here's to hoping he comes back and entertains us again very soon.
Trail Blazers at Nuggets, 9:00pm:
Portland recently signed Joel Przybilla for added depth at center. When the Vanilla Gorilla is an important signing, I am not sure what that says about your team.
Rockets at Jazz, 9:00pm:
The Rockets are about to start a stretch where they play on the road 8 times in 11 games. They have only put up a 6-10 road record this year so far. Ruh roh.
Timberwolves at Lakers, 10:30pm:
Kobe has a broken nose. I fully expect to see him try to play hero ball to prove it won't slow him down any.
