A famous saying goes, "you give a dog a bone, and it asks for the entire skeleton." Okay, that was just totally invented by me. Anyway, first time in my entire PtR life (that's about 3 years - 2 1/2 of those in lurker mode, mind you) that a loser thread was recycled. Reused. Kinda like your underwear switched to Side B when you ran out of a clean piece. Ewww.
Do we really love basketball that much? Do we really enjoy bashing other teams and their not-quite-Spurs players? Do we really like hanging out at some webspace with e-friends who might be even crazier than how they act in the threads? Maybe even crazier than *gasp* Ron Artest? Do we really find satisfaction in checking out links that burn time away from the productive stuff like working and sleeping and drinking tea with our pinkie finger up while holding the cup handle? If your answer is yes to all these questions, then you belong here, you
clinically depressed chap loser.
Tonight's loser thread is an extra special: doubleheader for the double loser. Hah, who says that only those big TV networks can host doubleheaders? Here at PtR, we do it with style - two games, two days, one hack thread. Beat that you capitalist monster, you suit, you!!!
Alright, the rules are, just like everything for LeBron except winning a title, quite easy. Feel free to post in this thread for tonight's game - Lakers vs. Nuggets - and tomorrow's elimination game (oooo... I heart elimination games!), Cavaliers vs. Magic. Just continuous, shameless posting. This one's for the record books, so stand up and be counted!
Oh yeah, the preview. I almost forgot. Double the game thread equals double the hackish-ness, so no photoshopping fun for me today. But still, I have... pictures!
Fisher: Didn't you get the memo about the Kobe-LeBron Finals?
Referee: Hey, I ain't sucking no commissioner's balls!
And we thought there was only one Birdman in the house. Apparently, this one's a chicken.
"Observe how easily I can manipulate this ball, you pathetic, lowly Nugget!"
Luke Walton puts the Lakers in a... uh, very compromising position. Stop peeking, JR!
You want your Game 4 summary? Basically, Lakers sucked. JR Smith went nuts, in a good, scoring way. Kobe scored. Melo had the flu and sprained his ankle a bit. Kobe scored. Chauncey was steady and composed. Kobe scored. A female hotel employee from Colorado entered the room. Kobe scored!!!
Now how about that Cavs-Magic Game 4, eh? The LeBroneers are in a deep hole, but it ain't over 'til the fat commish sings. Still, pictures.
"Hey Kobe, uh... remember that Finals thing we talked about? Listen, sorry I can't make it... I have to, uh, go to China in June 'coz, uh... I gotta keep up with the global icon thing, ya know? The 'chip can wait."
"Uh-oh... these lions reaaallly look friendly now. Where the hell are my teammates when I need them?"
"How do you like me now, fools? How do you like the 400-pound me now??!!"
Karate is back, baby!!!
And lastly... belated Happy Mother's Day?
"Moooom!!! I told you to wear your lucky pink socks, dammit! Look what happened!"
The playoff gods have spoken. This year's NBA playoffs, with the exception of the Spurs' first round exit, have been intense and worth watching. As one of my friends liked to say, "Let's keep on keeping on." This makes me want to take that extra step. Don't be shy. C'mon now.
