We all agree with Timofey Mozgov's(notes) assertion that it is funny that Shaquille O'Neal(notes) "puts four giant cushions on his seat" on the Boston Celtics bench, Kevin Garnett(notes). But does your legendary intensity and drive to win in all things really have to extend to the most-outlandish-seat-cushion game? I mean, if it's cool by that fan, it's cool by me, I guess. But you have to admit, this is a weird level of competitiveness. And just a touch unseemly.

NOTE: Quality zing, Matt. C-a-C took an unscheduled hiatus because I had to do my world-famous Pauly Shore impression for a few days. (Obviously, I killed it.) Hoping to get back to normal — or at least, the relative normal you've come to expect of absurd out-of-context images of NBA persons doing things that make me laugh — for at least the next few days.
