I was fortunate enough to join Dave and Audley the other day on The NBA Breakdown radio show to chat about the home stretch of the regular season and how we expect the Playoffs to unfold. We talk John Salmons and the Bucks, the Bulls, some Thunder, the Boston old-age home, the sad state of the Pacers, a Bargnani and Bosh front court, free agency 2010 and then get into my real areas of expertise: beards and nicknames. (Although I inexplicably think that The Mayor played for Creighton at some point. For shame, me. For shame.)
Head over to The NBA Breakdown to listen.
John Salmons must have had a very conflicted Tuesday evening. One on hand, he repeatedly got torched down the stretch by Paul Pierce, who decided to drill pull-up jumper after pull-up jumper in the fourth quarter and overtime after realizing that Bulls coach Vinny of the Black has a learning disability and thus was not going to send a double team at him. But on the other hand, John probably looked in the mirror at some point after the game and saw this fantastic face growth while Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” started playing inside his head.
Moral of the story: Win some, lose some.
Therefore, this Great Moment is dedicated to the man we in the NBA Twitterverse have affectionately begun calling Fish Sticks. And, yes, by “we” I mean “me.”
And in mildly related Bulls news, this is my favorite cartoon thus far from the Garbage Time-All Stars.
