Film Review of the Day
"It's the Citizen Kane of Alcoholic Clown Movies"
- Movie review of the "Shakes the Clown" DVD
Wicked Witches of the East
In the East, it's an old-fashioned girl fight...
Well, I think this will be a good series. The DogEaters have their big three: Garnett, Brandon and McGrady. Cancun had only two superstars in Karl Malone and Vince Carter, but may have more depth with Marcus Camby and Doug Christie.
I have no predicition on the winner, but I'm sure this series will include a lot of eye-scratching and hair-pulling... you can't beat a good girl fight for entertainment.
Go West, Young Men
Hey, at least they're not chicks...
I love these two guys... they've been firing emails at each other for a couple weeks now. You have to make Diablo Danny the prohibitive favorite in this series and probably to go all the way. Diablo is the Lakers of the NIBL. With Shaq, Kobe and Penny cranking in the playoffs, the Spawn will be tough to beat. Joliet features Gary Payton and Eddie Jones, but that doesn't sound like enough firepower to slow down the Shaq-diesel to me.
Supplemental Playoff Draft
Each team gets to add two NBA players to their roster via the supplemental playoff draft. Here's the draft order (based on team rank):
and then back up the reverse order for the second round.
You (playoff "you"s that is) can draft any NBA player in the NBA playoffs that isn't currently on a NIBL roster. Here's the list of available players:
And, for your convenience, here's the same list sorted by player position:
Ugh. Talk about blue light specials...
Playoff guys, please inspect this list closely. If you find any discrepencies (missing players, players that shouldn't be there, etc), then please email me. Before the draft, we will all agree on a list of available players so there are no surprises dur to administrative error.
Quote of the Day
"Did you give Ty a cookie?"

Let's get it on!
