The Thursday Night Scratching Post
I want to introduce you to my friend Tabbi (pictured above with the green hair). Tabbi, in addition to being one of the weirdest things I’ve seen, is the most expensive scratching post money can buy. For just $1,485 you could have your very own Tabbi sitting there, just like that, in your living room…watching you. That’s too expensive you say? Well then try the slightly less expensive model ($985), the Tabbi 3, which comes with no head, arms, or legs, but does include a torso with a heart shaped tramp stamp on the lower back. Don’t believe me, see for yourself…
You can’t make this stuff up. Onto the news…
NBACats in Action
– Well, the trend of seeing both Daniel Orton and DeAndre Liggins play together lasted all of one game, as neither saw the court tonight. Not surprisingly, this resulted in the Magic losing to the Hawks, 83-78. The Magic are 1-0 in games that both Liggins and Orton play, and they have lost 13 times when neither or only one of them plays. Numbers don’t lie. A full post game recap can be found here.
– The Nazr Mohammed game won’t be finished until later tonight, so we’ll get to his post game recap tomorrow morning.
NBACats in the News
– Over at the ESPN Fantasy Basketball Blog, they had a new post up talking about how players have been doing and our boy Brandon Knight made the cut. Here is what they had to say…
Brandon Knight is carving out a larger role for the Pistons, averaging 35.8 minutes per game over his past four games. Still, it’s what he’s doing with those minutes that is most impressive. Over that stretch, he is averaging 18.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 3.0 3s per game and is 11-for-11 from the foul line. The backcourt rotation has been in flux all season for the Pistons, but Knight should maintain 30 or so minutes per game the rest of the way.
– There is apparently a large contingency of people in Atlanta who think Josh Smith got snubbed for not being selected as the one to replace Joe Johnson in the All-Star game, like our boy Rondo did. All I have to say is…you should have gone to Kentucky. #TheKentuckyEffect
– Finally, for those of you who have always wondered what John Wall’s closet looks like, there is a video of Mr. Wall giving Wizards Magazine a tour of his apartment. I searched all over YouTube so I could embed the video for your viewing convenience, but came up empty handed. So you’ll have to use this link, check it out.
