When you're done attending Clutch the Bear's mascot fantasy camp, come back here and check out these bawful links:
In the wake of Amar'e Stoudemire's mom getting arrested, we have a unreal interview with her courtesy of KTVK-TV. As the very first comment on that site notes, she's "like a character from MADtv." Twenty two minutes of rambling insanity and carefully choosing her words to make it sounds like she did nothing wrong and was railroaded by the cops.
In even better news? A story confirming what us Suns fans hoped: Amar'e is unlikely to re-sign with the Suns. Maybe they can actually have someone on the floor who actually rebounds and plays defense every once in awhile. So long, STATUE. (Thanks to Basketbawful reader gebwel for suggesting that fantastic nickname)
Oh, and to cap it all off, the new Nyets owner Mikhail Prokhorov continues to be eccentric, insane, and fantastically entertaining. It's like he's going out of his way to create fodder for our website. Oh, and for Bill Simmons as well.
Worst of the Night in Pictures:
All The Saturday Games:
Magic at Celtics - ESPN, 8:30pm
Celtics lead series 2-0
Glad to see the Celtics finally remembered how to shift out of neutral and back into gear. I'm afraid that the Magic will suddenly remember how to hit a jumpshot, but the look in Vag Carter's eyes when he got up to shoot those Nick Anderson style free throws says a lot about this series.

All The Sunday Games:
Lakers at Suns - TNT, 8:30pm
Lakers lead series 2-0
If the Lakers just feed the ball to Gasol in the post every single possession, how long does it take for the Suns to figure out how to defend against it? I think somewhere around September or October at the earliest. Sigh.
