Second round action of our completely pointless, albeit oddly entertaining, BDL Bedlam Tournament. 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 first eight match-ups of the second round. Voting will remain open until late Tuesday night.
Our first second-round battle in the West Region pits No. 12 seed 'Tommy Points' vs. No. 13 seed 'Where Amazing Happens' commercials. (Double-digit seeds have wreaked havoc in this tourney so far.) In the first round, Tommy crushed the Godfather, while the NBA commercials took down the stylin' Draft day suits. Another look at the nominees:
No. 12 Tommy Points: Tommy Points, as their name suggests, are the creation of Celtics announcer and 10-time NBA champ Tommy Heinsohn. The points are awarded to Celtics players for displaying extraordinary effort on a particular play -- diving for a loose ball, fighting for an offensive rebound, etc. TommyPoints.com used to track the C's point leaders, but it hasn't been updated in years. Sad.
So, who/what makes it through to the Sweet Sixteen? What do you love more? Vote.
