UPDATE: The end is where late additions and/or retractions/corrections will/can be made, for those who were late additions and can/will be. We will continue to update this throughout the day, so if you have ANYTHING you want posted, NBA or not, link or not, send it to yaysports@gmail.com. It doesn’t even have to be a full sentence – it doesn’t even have to be a real word – as long as it’s PG, we’ll post it.

(For our reaction to the OSU-LSU National Championship Game, you’ll have to read all the way to the end.)

Welcome to El Carnival du NBA Numero Trois du Feeftai, et Dans la Garage, which translated, doesn’t mean anything, because it’s some coagulation of several languages, with “Carnival” and “NBA” thrown in.

In this way, we have put the idea across without actually saying it.

Before we get to El Carnival, allow us to indulge you for a moment in our favorite topic – ourself.

We are The Cavalier – you may remember us from a time, several years ago, when this very site was considered not only entertaining, but one of the highest quality, highest traffic NBA blogs in all the world.

Tens of thousands of you would check in every day, simply to bask in the glow that was our writings, and to learn how to be cool.

Four or five posts per day were the norm – sometimes up to six or seven. Passion sprang forth from every word and Photoshop effort. Love seeped from every pore. Love for the NBA, for blogging, and for you, the reader.

And then…something happened.

On May 5th, 2006…we had an idea. An idea sprang forth from that which we derive our main source of income, that being the film industry.

We would make a short film. It would be a happy, short, quickie nod to a lovable snake that graced this blog for many a post. That snake’s name was Mamba, and we decided we were going to shoot him.

This 10-minute short would be called Who Shot Mamba?, and it would debut in late June, 2006.

Alas, this was not to be, for as we began the task of putting this idea to paper, it simply…grew. More and more concepts and characters from the site demanded inclusion – they would be jammed into the script, and soon the piece bloated to 102 pages…by god, that’s the length of a feature film…this is what we said to ourself.

And so we pondered.

30 seconds later our decision was made – we would make this movie, for it was a story worth telling.

And so we did this thing that we set out to do, and yet, it was not enough, and so we stopped.

That which we shot in that summer of 2006 was deemed “not bad”, but inside that footage was gold. That’s what we saw – gold. Performances, concepts, and hilarity that was screaming, begging, and pleading…MAKE ME BIGGER. MAKE ME BETTER.

And so we did.

In December of that 2006, Who Shot Mamba? 2.0 (then lovingly shorthanded to WSM?) went before the cameras – a little bigger, a little better. Ideas fleshed out, more money spent where it was needed – a better film it was, and yet…it was not to be finished.

For late in the latest of nights in the cold, harsh Los Angeles winter, our baby…this…this WSM? creature called to us. Nay, screamed yet again.

We followed its calls deep into the mountains of the Hollywood Hills, where we found our friend, and he looked us dead in the eye, and he said, “I AM BIGGER THAN THIS. DO NOT BETRAY ME.”

Sadness, doubt, uncertainty – all of these things overwhelmed us. For 14 seconds we sat in that glum moonlight and pondered once again. And then…certainty grew where uncertainty had lived just moments before.

“I will not let you down, my friend – we are linked, you and I, and where you feel pain, so then do I. I shall go to mine home, and I shall bloat you out to a full 165 pages. You shall be my Dances With Wolves, and I shall be your Sylvester Stallone/Kevin Costner hybrid, since I don’t know how to be a director!”

It was little gay, but we kissed, and in April of 2007, WSM? 3.0 was born, and full potential was realized at last. The trials were not over, however, for in August 2007 there would be more shooting, and even in December 2007 more!

(Why this is cannot be fully explained until Who Drowned Mamba? – The Making of Who Shot Mamba?, available only on the massive DVD release, which is massive thanks to having 3 separate versions of the movie.)

(Oh, and if you have no idea what a Who Shot Mamba? is, click here and behold that which changes everything.)

THAT SAID…it is 2008, and out journey is almost complete. Our baby almost ready for delivery…which brings us full circle to this website…the father of Mamba himself. This poor, weakened endeavor which birthed a legend has in itself become a withered, weakened beast – sacrificing it’s own health for that of its child.

But today, it says to you, “I AM COMING BACK. I TOO AM STRONG. I HAVE ONE LAST BURST OF LIFE AND I WILL NOT BE DENIED IT.”

Shocked – that’s what we were. Shocked that not only did this being called YAYsports! NBA still live, but that it too had gained sentience and began speaking to us.

Our journey to this point in time has be long and difficult – we now toe the line between genius and insanity on this and every day following, and yet this will be something we embrace, not shun.

And so…it begins here…with El Carnival du NBA Numero Trois du Feeftai, et Dans la Garage, in which we make no attempt to hide our utter contempt for what the world of sports blogging has become, ie derivative, incestuous, and slightly creepy. Click on.

Allow us to begin by explaining to you just how far we’ve fallen – whereas once we were the pinnacle of NBA blogging respect, we now don’t even warrant an email (let alone a nomination) from some blogspot dude who just started some made-up NBA Blogger Award thing.

We sent out an email invite to every blogger we could find an email address for, and asked them to participate anonymously. [Cavalier note: in the old days we called this link-whoring, and we looked down on it.] We also instructed them to send it to anyone they knew that blogged on the NBA that didn’t get an invite. It’s an awfully big series of tubes out there, after all. Every major blogger was invited, and many participated. We want to thank everybody that took time out of their day to participate. We hope to make this an annual event.

Shocking, to say the least. Not that we deserve any awards for the past year’s output, but not even invited to the new guy’s party?

Sorry to start out on such a dour note – let’s move on to old favorite and good-internet-friend Detroit Bad Boys. Matt is actually doing most of his work over at HoopWorld – we’ve never read any of it, but we’re sure it’s full of things about the Pistons and their 10-game win streak.

10 games? Really? See, these are the things we miss by not watching the NBA anymore. Are these the same old Pistons, or are they finally using the kids to give the starters a break? Remember when we used to call them the Lasers? Remember when Rasheed Wallace got upset that one time? Do Sheed jokes even play anymore?

A quick look at Need4Sheed doesn’t give us any answers, since Natalie not only still loves Sheed, but still needs him. Ace bandages forever.

Quick link to Jack Cobra, who actually does all his NBA writing right here on this site, and talks about confusing things we don’t understand on his own.

Old (as in “known for awhile”, not as in “aged”) friend Sonia is still doing the daily Timberwolves updates, only now she does it over at TWolvesBlog DOT COM, which has to be somewhat difficult to do day after day, yes? No? We have no idea – are the Timberwolves bad? We just assumed. We should really be using this as a tool to learn about like the standings for this season and stuff.

(btw that link is to a TWolvesBlog post, but it’s not by Sonia!)

Empty the Bench puts Sasha Pavlovic on its list of 10 players who don’t deserve the 20+ minutes they’re getting every night – this would be fine, if you can tell us who should get those minutes? Snow?

Here’s another link from these lads – they’re greedy over there with their empty benches and their DOT COM after the empty bench. We don’t know what it’s about – we’re already regretting doing this thing. Somehow we thought we’d get to talk more about ourself – those 2000 words to open the thing weren’t nearly enough.

RedsArmy says something or other about how the NBA is on the verge of coming back in popular culture. Don’t jump to any conclusions – they’re not saying this just because the Celtics are good again – that would be too obvious from a Boston fan.

Just go read the entire BobCats Planet site – they sent like 400 links in for this. Here’s one about a WOMAN. OH YEAH!

Fake soap opera about the Knicks from a 1997 website. Look, we’re not the masters of web design or anything, but c’mon!

Okay, let’s take a break and dive into some more of those Academy screeners we’ve got sitting here:

I AM LEGEND – This was great. We’ve never read the book, and we’re fairly sure it completely bastardizes it, but that’s of no concern to us. We’re of the sort who can separate book from movie. In fact, this made us want to read the book, just to see how they’re different.

DAN IN REAL LIFE – There’s nothing wrong with this movie – it’s neither good nor bad. It’s like, “here’s a movie about a guy with relationship problems,” and that’s the job it does. We can’t see how anyone imagine this could get nominated for anything.

INTO THE WILD – Powerful stuff here – if we’d seen this ten years ago, we’d have hit the road in a second. Of course, we wouldn’t be dead, since as soon as the hot 16-year old wanted to hug and kiss, we’d have stayed there, and left our dreams of living in a wilderness bus behind forever. See this if you can – great movie.

Okay, back to NBA ACTION, just like you like it. Here’s someone who totally understands us – they sent in this link.

Australian invasion time – we’re big fans of the Somerton Thunder – if we ever go down under, we’ll be playing an exhibition game against them. 5 on 1 for the fate of the world.

Of course, everyone knows about the very best anti-Larry Hughes site on the net – it was mentioned in an AP article and everything. The irony/hitch here – the worse CLE fans’ relationship with Larry gets, the less likely he is to get any better.

Relaunched SWAGLESS fake interview with Madonna – totally nothing about the NBA in there! CARNIVAL!

We’ve never heard of Drop Kick Monkey DOT COM, but if they’re sending in links related to anything Michael Jordan, we’re going to check it out. It’s a site about commercials or something.

Okay, we looked, and the commercial they want linked is a Melo one. This reminds us of the new issue of SLAM we saw in the store lasterday – it’s Melo and AI, grinning ear to ear, with the headline “High Times”. There’s no way Lang, Sam, et al didn’t know exactly what they were doing there, did they?

AI is an old pro at this sort of thing, having appeared on double-digit SLAM covers. I’ve told people before that even if we only got 10 frames of AI, all 10 would be cover-worthy. Melo isn’t quite AI—he has a tendency to crack up when he’s trying to look mean—but given that we were looking for smiles this time, it worked out for the best.

And again, those smiles were for real.

No doubt – just looking for the source of them, friend.

YAY’s own Jordi gets all serious and talks about serious things that are serious and also serious.

Scottie Pippen commercials seem to be all the rage right now – here’s one for Mazda from some other country, courtesy of The Blowtorch.

It must be weird and hard to be BlogABull right now – you’ve got a team in turmoil who makes you go on rants, and you handed the Carnival to someone who only wants to talk about themself.

Speaking of us, let’s take a moment and just enjoy some silence. Just enjoy being here – don’t bother reading anything:

Excellent. Let’s go back to it now with BulletsForever, who notes that the youngin’ folks in the Wizards locker room are getting separated.

Speaking of the Wizards, here’s how we feel about this whole “Gilbert might shut it down for the year, unless the Wiz are in position to do something special.” That’s retarded – you can either play or you can’t. They’re doing exactly the same without you, so your self-importance in this regard is interesting.

Mateen Cleaves makes it onto SacTownRoyalty’s list of the all-time loathed Kings.

Dear lord, there’s a lot of words in 20-Second Timeout’s Mavs-Warriors recap!

Two guys who blatantly turned down a chance to have their voices heard in WSM? continue to have their voices heard on The Basketball Jones, herein commenting on Chris Bosh’s girlfriend.

(When you hear who we got to do their part, you won’t believe it is who we say it is…but it is. Never say we don’t build bridges! It’s poetic.)

This is so long…there’s no chance anyone is still reading this – you’ve either clicked away or given up, right? Who goes to all these links? If you’re still reading, post “I LOVE AIRPLANES” in the comments section, followed by “8+4=YES”.

The Warriors interested in Gary Payton? Golden State of Mind looks at it.

DroppingDimes is all like posting pictures of naked women and relating it to fantasy basketball again!

Seriously, this is getting painful to do – this is already longer than like every other Carnival, isn’t it? We’ve got a nice sampling of various sites, right? Frankly, we wish more people were like the tomatoes.com guy, or this guy, who just sent in a picture:

who-shot-mamba.jpg

If we ever start another blog (WE WON’T), that’s what we’re calling it.

(Looking back a couple links, we should’ve done every link with something indicating there were naked women on the other end. There are some of you who would click every one…just in case.)

MC Bias writes an open letter to Michael Jordan, using naked college girls.

Okay, we’re out of gas for now – if we get a second wind, we’ll finish this, otherwise, it’s over.

Don’t forget to go watch the WSM? thing again, and be on the watch for the official beginning of the end, which will be indicated by the begining of the official WSM? promo push, which is still a ways away yet. There’s a dude across the street who’s building an apartment building, and we have a bet of $1 for what gets done first – his building or our movie.

(We filmed a scene in the empty lot before there was a building there. He just had his drywall inspection today – it’s gonna be a close race.)

Okay, it’s post-Ohio State loss, and time to weigh in on that. We’re not really feeling anything either way, to be honest. We went to OSU for two years, but never really developed a live-or-die loyalty for them. (Are we the least passionate sports blogger on the planet? Can we have that title?)

One more – Roger Clemens. He sounds like us after we get caught red-handed cheating on a girlfriend. Just say “no I didn’t” so many times you believe it yourself. This also trickles down to those who really, really, really, really want to believe you.

His best excuse was “I’d have ears growing out of my forehead”. That’s it – that’s the best he has. That and the, “Where’s the guy who sold me these drugs, huh? Why doesn’t he come forward?”

Um…cause usually people doing the drug traffic thing don’t announce themselves to the world for no reason? Does that count?

As for his recorded conversation with the trainer guy lasterday – we think it made Clemens looks worse, especially since his lawyer was like, “notice how McNamee never said anything about Roger using steroids on the phone call?” That’s right, he didn’t – and if you listen to the start of the call, he’s clearly stating he’s worried the call is being tapped by gov’t people or other people or who-knows-who-people?

Roger Clemens = guilty. NBA Carnival of non-NBA stuff = over! Long live Moomba!

LATE PEOPLE – SITTING IN THE CORNER:

With Malice – naked girls and the NBA’s first term report. Who are you, Mark Stein?

The Awards guy emailed the following:

Last Night…

“Doo dee doo… reading the Google reader, oh, I got linked somewhere else. Cool. Oh, Awesome, Yay Sports! I love those guys! What did they say?!”

*Reads*

“What? What do you mean I didn’t…”

*Checks email list for blogger awards*

“Holy Tapdancing Christ! I left out Yay Sports!”

And that’s pretty much how that went.

Our sincerest apologies. We bow to the greatness of Yay, and humbly ask for forgiveness.

In exchange for your mercy (and hopefully a chance for you to read our stuff and preferably change us from “Some Blogspot guy” so we don’t feel like Kige Ramsey. Anymore than we have to.), we humbly offer inclusion in the Blogger Awards blogger-voting in April.

We hope you shall find mercy in your infinite wisdom.

-Matt
Hardwood Paroxysm

We don’t know what a Kige Ramsey is, but we’ll offer forgiveness in exchange for a lifetime achievement award ala the Cecil B Demille Award. That’s the one they just give to an old and savvy vet, who needs standing ovations on the basis of simply existing for a long time.

He has also posted about the grave and glaring error. The link is in the comments section.

That bastard Jeff at CelticsBlog wrote up something about naked girls, choo-choo trains, and the Celtics.

It seems we have offended Canada in some small way:

At your convenience, check out www.dinosty.com . It’s our first year, just gearing up. If you like us, add us to your links. We’ll promise to send 1000 cases of Du Mauriers and Maple syrup, as well as the alarm code to Avril Lavigne’s house (she’s a deep sleeper).

We are looking for big, strong, USofA friends. After our rookie season, we’re planning to re-vamp the site and go for nothing less than national domination. Trust me, it’s as easy as it sounds.

This entire sequence made us laugh. Our links page will likely never get updated, but here’s a link to Dinosty, the future kings of Canada.

Also, someone is smart – they sent us this to post:

jardeau (jar-doe), noun: a hamburger that became such only after the cheese fell off during production.

ex: My, this is a delicious jardeau! Surely even better than if the cheese had stayed on during production!

Okay, we totally made that up ourself. Nobody sent that in. We’re just trying to encourage you to keep the Carnival updating.

ClipsNation wants your help in fixing the Clippers. Wait. Aren’t the Clippers good? Hey, look at this – it’s like the opposite!

Chris Bosh

This is funny. Also not about the NBA:

The NBA Source (Didn’t this used to be on a non-MVN site?) says that there’s nothing like a bunch of naked girls when watching NBA rookies play.

8 4=YES!

2 JTExperience January 8, 2008 at 12:22 am

This was definitely the most awesome NBA Carnival ever. EVER.

I LOVE AIRPLANES, 8+4=YES, I read the whole thing.

That’s two years in a row OSU has been teabagged by the SEC in the Championship game. Oh, yeah, it happened in basketball too. Damn. Tough break.

3 Josh January 8, 2008 at 12:23 am

I LOVE AIRPLANES

4 The Cavalier January 8, 2008 at 12:37 am

Wow look at you guys.

5 Matt W. January 8, 2008 at 1:30 am

8 4=AIRPLANES.

6 MelvilleHornets January 8, 2008 at 2:08 am

8+4=YES

Yes, I read the whole thing. The blog resurrection has me intrigued. I think this:

2) The tour bus of 50 Asian students in Arizona. Each and every one was eating a Dove bar from Dairy Queen, with looks on their faces that said, “We are experiencing America right now!”

…was the moment that I began to laugh again. Suddenly, I’m optimistic. You’re like the Obama for comedic sports blogs. Oh! And there’s America right in the quote! Hope synergy.

Cav-

When WSM? wins an Academy Award, can I go on stage with you, seeing as I was blogging w/ you from the beginning? I still have our first Google chat saved somewhere! LOL! I won’t say anything during you acceptance speech. I just want to be in the picture and have a really cool look on my face.

Btw, my wife and I are having another baby girl circa March 9th. You’re going to be an uncle yet again.

11 tiff January 8, 2008 at 8:14 am

missed you, The Cavalier!

12 Fios January 8, 2008 at 8:33 am

1) Yes, I have 84 airplanes
2) I fell for the naked women thing! I’m easily scammed … hold on, some guy just handed me a winning lottery ticket, I just need to give him $300
3) Ohio State should decline invitations to finals of any kind

13 becky January 8, 2008 at 8:35 am

I read the whole thing, but I’m really quite indifferent toward airplanes.
Anyway, once you’ve given birth (terrible visual there, pal) and you have some free time, you should just try watching some games…it’s a good season, lots to like, I promise.

14 Jordi January 8, 2008 at 8:57 am

I was so very tempted to quote your Gilbert line “They’re doing exactly the same without you, so your self-importance in this regard is interesting.” but then I realized my ability to hold such an NBA carnival pales in comparison to yours (probably because I have never held one – but if I had, there wouldn’t be airplanes, and baked potatoes, et al). It’s like you had all those words stifled in your cerebelum for so long they just exploded out in an orgiastic fury.

Well done.

15 roger January 8, 2008 at 9:16 am

Did people ever come here to REALLY read about the NBA? No. It was the photoshops. Props to the baked potato guy – wherever it is that he went.

16 quiet cardinal January 8, 2008 at 10:06 am

I LOVE BAKED POTATOES

17 goathair January 8, 2008 at 10:15 am

HOLY AWESOMEPANTS

18 The Cavalier January 8, 2008 at 10:17 am

Okay we just registered madpropstobakedpotatoes.com – just in case. I think that’s like 500 domain names we own at this point.

kwamevscake.com expires this month.

19 Jeremiah January 8, 2008 at 10:17 am

The “It was little gay, but we kissed” was wicked awesome…nice job. Best post eva bro.

20 Stillajew January 8, 2008 at 10:20 am

Long live Baked Potatoes! Mad props yo! Mad props!

21 Jeremiah January 8, 2008 at 10:35 am

Just so every one knows, over at IMDB you can now rate Who Shot Mamba? It needs at least 5 user ratings to post, I already threw down a vote for 10 stars. You should do the same. Type in the whole title into the search box WHO SHOT MAMBA. If you just type in WSM? you get Anchorman for some reason. They have AKA on IMDB so Cav you may want to think about getting on that to add WSM?. The only reason I bring all of this up is that if a lot of people vote 10 stars on IMDB it gets the movie onto hot lists and such, which is never a bad thing.

22 Stillajew January 8, 2008 at 10:36 am

Here is the link if anyone wants to go directly there:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1153545/

23 The Cavalier January 8, 2008 at 10:40 am

Yeah IMDB is a pain to update – there have been a lot of additions to that listing that aren’t up yet already. Sometimes it can take month to get things up, and there’s no ability to directly contact them or anything, either. So basically, that listing is incomplete and also has some mistakes on it.

24 Boney January 8, 2008 at 11:54 am

you have an obsession with things that revolve around food… potatoes, spatulas, cake!, etc…

perhaps this merits a visit to the psychologist

25 caseta January 8, 2008 at 12:05 pm

liar. i checked all the links. twice. there were no naked girls.

PS: i know who shot mamba. it was boney. the jealous vengeful bastard shot the wrong snake …

26 The Cavalier January 8, 2008 at 12:24 pm

3,345 words – this has to be a the record, right?

27 Boney January 8, 2008 at 12:31 pm

are you looking for a pat on the back Cav? are you pining for some comfort? is that why you continue to mention food? does food make you feel good?

and to show you how much I know about the mental health field, I said psychologist and not psychiatrist. my apologies for being such a damn dummy…

caseta, I couldn’t have shot mamba. I don’t own a gun, yet. if you people continue searching my ip, then I might have to re-consider…

28 Jeff January 8, 2008 at 12:37 pm

counting words is so Bill Simmons, I hear he loves airplanes too

29 The Cavalier January 8, 2008 at 12:42 pm

Ouch.

Hey Boney, nobody is searching ips – they’re listed right next to the comments in the internal WordPress system.

30 Jordi January 8, 2008 at 1:09 pm

I don’t own a gun (nor many guns) yet I own a gun rack if you want to borrow that.

31 Greg Odens tonsils January 8, 2008 at 1:13 pm

Dear Vanilla Pespi with splash of lime aka the caviar,

please make posts about your everyday life with silly paint pictures of dinosauraus boshs and funny basketball things! Make the letter portion of your abortion about your everyday rebirth of the suicide. How do you fail to properly commit suicideeeee?

33 stopmikelupica January 8, 2008 at 1:16 pm

How about watching one of the original versions of “I Am Legend”? The 1970′s Charlton Heston version (“The Omega Man) and the 1960′s original version starring Vincent Price (“The Last Man On Earth”) are both based on the book…

34 mcbias January 8, 2008 at 1:45 pm

Boney, you’re picking on the Cavalier for liking food? Food? What are we talking about here? We’re talking about food. Not liking the Cavaliers too much, not for his bloated ego, not for his Photoshop–we’re talking about food. FOOD! Sigh. I miss the old Boney, who made fun of The Cavalier on topics where there was potential for disagreement and actually was funny. What happened to him?

35 mcbias January 8, 2008 at 1:46 pm

*Not about the Cavalier liking the Cavaliers too much is what it should say above.

36 El Kwame January 8, 2008 at 2:25 pm

Donde esta la cake?

37 Boney January 8, 2008 at 5:05 pm

mcbias,

I’m slowly warming up to this new Cavalier that has presented himself. Sort of like, Cavalier 2.0 or something… he doesn’t write much about the NBA anymore since it (admittedly) doesn’t entertain him anymore so there isn’t much for me to disagree about… He hasn’t bashed the Lasers too much and his photoshops are at the top of their game…

Thursday and Friday are coming, so I’m sure there’s a chance that a disagreement (or 4) will come…

38 Joe In Bugaha January 8, 2008 at 7:12 pm

Dear Pimp,

This is a great place to hang out because all you guys do is talk about food and guns and photoshop little bubble thoughts on people and other “creative” things a 12 year old boy loves. We just want you to know that this is a real fun place to hang out, talk, and be friends. Could we exchange myspaces so that the fun never has to end? We gotta go potty now.

Signed,

40 jonny kilbane, esq. January 9, 2008 at 12:15 am

does this mean you’re terminating our legal relationship?

i mean it’s no big deal, but like you’re my only client.

no pressure though, it’s cool.

and, for the record (that’s how us law-talking guys roll), the utter lack of discussion of cake, and the smashing thereof, really makes me sad.

sad enough to sue. you know, for the punitive damages you’re giving me and what not.

Thanks for the final words on this marathon, although The NBA Source was created from MVN’s general basketball coverage, including End of the Bench and Taking it to the Rack. There’s no mention of the posts I submitted on my Sixers site, http://www.passionandpride.com. I’ve got an interview coming with GM Ed Stefanski, so stay tuned. If you’re taking requests, I’d like to see former GM Billy King working the drive thru at Burger King. Thanks!
