NBA on Facebook Fun
I filled out my NBA playoff bracket on Facebook this year, within the NBA Bracket-Ball and Trivia Challenge group (Facebook acct required).
People can upload photos and other sundry images within the group, and as you might imagine, it's a little bit of a free-for-all. How about a little Friday frivolity with a rundown of some of the more entertaining images I've found there. Most of these are uncredited, so if I've taken something that someone in the NBA blogosphere has created, please let me know and I'll gladly give credit where it's due.
OK, let's get going. One of my favorite emerging stories of the 2007 playoffs is the sheer splendor of the Baron Davis beard, which some seem to believe resembles that of Leonidas from 300 (from ClutchFans.net):
I had the pleasure of attending a playoff game at Air Canada Centre in 2001 and was really impressed by the atmosphere - one of the best in the NBA, for sure, with fans who were passionate and loyal.
And I continue to be impressed at how rabid the Raptors fan base is (link found via True Hoop). Their presence on Facebook is consistent with their intensity elsewhere - tons of Raps-related images, including many of the most creative. Here are three I liked:
The Yao pose is totally what makes this one work:
I'm going to hell for this, but can't resist:
This one - the Detroit Prez combo - is so dumb and such bad PhotoShop work that it makes me laugh every time:
These three are each ridiculous in their own ways, and I don't really know how to comment otherwise:
Dallas fans can only hope that they'll be wearing this T-shirt in June...:
...and not starring in this DVD (again):
OK, enough. Have a good weekend.
