Tyrus Thomas is a Violent Individual

…and Jermaine O’Neal needs to file charges for this one:

Goodness gracious. If I wasn’t mildly intoxicated and quite tired, I’d have something funny to say about this. I know J.O. is only 30, but he may want to think about retirement after that one. It’s never good to get tossed to the baseline by somebody’s nuts hitting your chest.

Dunk Insanity

Just saw this dunk at the end of Sportscenter, by Jarret Johnson of Anderson University (SC). The post-dunk pandemonium was more than warranted:

My good friend played basketball in high school, and one of his favorite hoops-related stories happened during a scrimmage, when one of his teammates tip-slammed on the team’s star player. The practice essentially ended as the entire gym went nuts, and one player simply sat down in the middle of the court and removed his shoes. The dunk was too much to handle.

Had I been wearing shoes when I saw this dunk, they would certainly have been removed. Dunks can do funny things to people.

Russell Westbrook Respectfully Disagrees With Your Vote

The news broke today that Portland’s Rudy Fernandez won the NBA.com fan vote for the fourth participant in the Slam Dunk Contest, beating out Milwaukee’s Joe Alexander and OKC’s Russell Westbrook. Instead of quietly ceding victory, Westbrook used near-lethal force to throw down this slam over Miami’s Mario Chalmers during last night’s game:

With Mario’s spectacular addition, TSOL is now up to 16 members. Although I completely missed it when the “lineup” hit 15 (the NBA maximum for a roster), I’m going to compile TSOL’s roster anyway. I’d put this squad up against almost any in the league:

PG: Delonte West, Mario Chalmers, Javaris Crittenton
SG: Dwyane Wade, Von Wafer
SF: Rasual Butler, Darius Miles, Bobby Simmons
PF: Pau Gasol, Big Baby Davis, Robin Lopez, Solomon Jones
C: Amare Stoudemire, Greg Oden, Tyson Chandler, Mikki Moore

To adhere to NBA rules, I guess we’d have to release Solomon Jones, but considering the ridiculous depth this team would have up front, he’s no big loss. If this team pulls a trade for a viable small forward (it’s too bad Al Thornton redeemed himself … he’d fit perfectly), they’d be NBA title contenders.
