In Which Brendan Haywood Is Totally Redeemed    

Excellent post at D.C. Sports Bog starring Roger Mason Jr., Calvin Booth, Brendan Haywood, and Haywood's PowerBar.  Let's just say that two hours ago I was 100% on Etan Thomas' side, and now I am 95% on Haywood's side.  That's a 195% swing, folks, and numbers don't lie.  And speaking of numbers, my favorite moment of the conversation is when Haywood shoots down Mason's UNC jab by quoting... Nick Bakay. Haywood gets the award for least-expected use of a catchphrase.

Also of note, though totally unrelated to both Haywood and Bakay, is the recent onslaught of 3-point shooting challenges initiated by Gil Arenas.  Down have gone DeShawn Stevenson and Mason, Jr. (in dress shoes and Armani, no less) in separate incidents.  This is exactly the sort of thing that promotes basketball to modern audiences; we gotta hear more about this stuff.  And not just from Arenas...


  • I wanna see Arenas and MJ take on JJ Redick in HORSE. By the end, he'd be cowering in a corner like the white housemate in Chapelle's real world, purely from the verbal abuse.
