While most of the country will surely be skipping American Idol to catch the huge Bobcats-Cavaliers game tonight, a small sliver of the population may tune in to ESPN to watch the Heat and the Pistons, holders of the best records in all of the Eastern lands.
Since both teams have their divisions officially or all but officially sealed up, this game is relevent only from the angle of sending messages. The Heat actually started their message-sending last night by sitting Shaq out against the Timberwolves.
Detroit Bad Boys says the message was clear – Detroit has corrupted the delicate minds of the Miami Heat.
We were originally picking Detroit to win this one, but after picking up this Chauncey Billups quote off Detroit Bad Boys, we’re switching to the suddenly much more likable Heat.
Chauncey Billups on the team’s recent struggles against some of the league’s basement teams:
“I don’t a lot of times enjoy playing those games,” he said. “I enjoy playing the games that are ‘big’ games. Not the games that a team’s coming in and they just do whatever they can and are just happy to be on the court with us. I don’t enjoy those games, but you have to play them.”
Nice, Chaunce. This isn’t the first time you’ve used your blatant honesty to look like an arrogant jerk.
Tying this together, the point is that there’s no reason to go searching out our own snippets and topics anymore when we can just read Detroit Bad Boys and piggyback whatever they’re doing. If they’re taking the day off, we just hit TrueHoop and put up a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar comedic showcase. Now, if we can get Need4Sheed to do all our Photoshopping, we can sit back, relax, and watch us some Finding Nemo.
