We don’t want to make fun of the Bucks after the Pistons’ easy Game 2 win – they’re an eight seed going against the best team in basketball – what do you expect?
It’s not like they’re doing something specifically wrong or they’re not trying. Fact is they’re just not good enough to compete in the playoffs with a team like Detroit. Detroit knows it, Milwaukee knows it, and you know it. It’s a boring series with an inevitable end.
Times like this, all we can do is yank quotes from a young foreigner and make fun of them.
“When we have lapses defensively, then we start throwing rocks at the rim,” said Bogut. “It all goes downhill at once. We don’t get stops and they score and we come down and shoot up rocks.”
Now, there’s a few different ways to go with something like this. Allow us to walk you through them.
1) You can Photoshop Andrew Bogut shooting. Take the ball and replace it with a rock. It’s steady, if completely obvious. Nobody’s going to link to that, but the regular reader looks at it and is probably satisfied.
2) Another option is to make up some outrageous story involving rocks and Andrew Bogut. Maybe something about how he really means something else, and this is his Australian-ness coming out. The you flip it back around and say that “rocks” actually mean “boulders” in Australia. It’s funny because boulders are just big rocks, so the whole paragraph was obsolete.
3) There’s the combo option. That’s when you say something like “Well, rocks are heavy, wouldn’t a stack of magazines be easier?” and you Photoshop Bogut shooting a stack of magazines.
4) Your final option is to give up and list all the ways you thought about going with this before realizing they’re all pretty mediocre and not worth pursuing. Finish by linking to another blog that you should be reading because it looks like the dude is about to snap, and we feel bad for enabling.
