Second round action of our completely pointless, albeit oddly entertaining, BDL Bedlam Tournament continues. Thanks to your help, we've compiled a list of 64 things that you may or may not love about the NBA, seeded them into four regions and created a Madness-like bracket. Today we'll unveil the final eight second-round match-ups. Voting will remain open until the end of Tuesday, EST.
Up next in the Sheed Region: No. 4 seed Allen Iverson's crossover vs. No. 12 seed Oracle Arena. In the first round, A.I. broke Bill Walton's ankles, while the Oracle -- backed by the cats at Golden State of Mind -- drowned out the CP3 and Deron combo. Another look at the nominees:
No. 4 Allen Iverson's crossover: You don't see it as much anymore, but Iverson's shimmy-shimmy, left-to-right crossover will go down as one the most devastating on-ball maneuvers of all-time. And if you drown out the Linkin Park with some Tribe or De La, this excellent A.I. YouTube mix will give you the chills.
No. 12 Oracle Arena: "The Oracle Arena crowd was the best I have ever seen in the NBA. In 15 years of playing and four years as a commentator, I have never, ever seen 20,000 fans standing as one for an entire second half. That's what Golden State's fans did in Game 6, and it was amazing to witness." -- Steve Kerr
