I Saw The Short-Shorts And All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt

The Basketbawful Worsties of 07-08 are pretty awesome. Long, but worth it. Who can forget such worst moments as:

- Bulls fans chanting for Kobe
- Lakers wearing short-shorts
- Smush Parker losing an NBA spot over a $12 parking fee
- Webber returing to the Warriors ("I was actually upset he was taking minutes from Austin Croshere.")

Lamar or the New Improved Bill Artest

He's just a bill, yes he's only a bill and he's playing up near capital hill (Sac, get it? heh)

I've been the Lamar fanboy since he was a Clipper. I love his game, but if Bynum and Gasol play the big man tandem, I have to believe the piece missing is the lock down swingman, introducing William "Ron Ron" Artest. Between Bill and Kobe they could cause more chaos than Heath Ledger's Joker (*spoiler*). Ron can also pour in some buckets, and you'd have to think Kobe would be even MORE inspired facing one of the best defenders during practice. I frigging LOVE Lamar, but since we should have expectations of repeating as WC Chmamps it would be silly to not consider adding the elements to beat a team like the Celtics. Still, I would be happy standing pat and seeing how this team functions with Drew at C and everyone else playing their natural position. But what makes me feel like a change will come is that Artest fills the most obvious gap, and Phil Jackson has proven he can manage even more eccentric personalities.

My heart says keep LO. My head says if we can get Artest and a vet like Kenny Thomas then it makes too much sense addressing our weak links.

Also,side note...Turiaf is no longer a Laker after getting overpaid by the Warriors. He's going to be a fan favorite up here and I'm glad he got paid. I'll miss the dude. His spirit will always keep him a L4L.

When do the Olympics start?
