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 Lord Baron Region: No. 4 seed Shaquille O'Neal vs. No. 5 Ronny Turiaf's dancing moves. In the first round, Officer O'Neal handcuffed Bruce Bowen's defense, while Ronny Turiaf shimmy-shimmy-ya'd past Lamar Odom's clothing line. Another look at the nominees:
No. 4 Shaquille O'Neal: Shaq Daddy, The Big Aristotle, Superman, Wilt Chamberneazy, Most Dominant Ever, Osama Bin Shaq -- he gave himself this one "for terrorizing Keith Van Horn under the boards" during the '02 Finals -- The Big Cactus, Shogun ... could "Bedlam's Best" be the next Shaquille O'Neal nickname? You decide.
No. 5 Ronny Turiaf's dancing: If you could invite just one NBA player to your wedding, who would it be? Waiting, waiting, waiting-- if you haven't said "Ronny Turiaf" by now, then you have no soul. Look. At. The. Moves!
So, what/who makes it through to the Sweet Sixteen? What do you love more? Vote or dance.
