Pick of the Night

Memphis Grizzlies -1.5 at Detroit Pistons

The Grizzlies are now 23 and 11 since their 1-8 start. As of now they would be the 7th seed in the West and a dangerous 7 seed at that. Taking down the likes of the Suns, Jazz, Trailblazers, Spurs, Thunder and Magic in recent weeks. The Pistons on the other hand have been very disappointing this season even with adding prolific scorer Ben Gordon. The Grizzlies are in the process proving to the rest of the league that they are no longer a slouch in this league. This is a game that they are supposed to win, rarely have the Grizzlies been in the position where they are supposed to win. Grizzlies minus only 1.5 points seems like a logical choice to me.

Grizzlies over Pistons – Scuttlebutt Record – (14-19)
Last pick, Tarheels -1 over Wolfpack, resulted in a Win with the Heels ending their losing streak with a 77-63 win.

Lebron caught plagiarizing

Posted by mvetack on December 9, 2009

Sharp Shooter

Above is an image of Ben Gordon’s trademark hand gesture after hitting a three pointer. Ben Gordon has been doing this for years in Chicago and now in Detroit. Last night Lebron hit a three and did this exact same thing. Now its fine to copy something as long as you give credit where credit is due. Until he does, Gordon is getting robbed. The real crime here isn’t that Lebron is being cocky, showing off, or even stealing Ben Gordon’s gesture, it is the fact that kids everywhere will do this gesture when they manage to make an outside shot and credit it to Lebron having know clue of the true originator. Tsk Tsk Lebron, Tsk Tsk.
