On to Round 3 of our completely pointless, albeit oddly entertaining Bedlam Tournament. Thanks to your help, we've compiled a list of 32 things that you may or may not love about the NBA and seeded them into four regions. We'll unveil the Elite Eight matchups today and tomorrow.
Up first, our final matchup in the President Region: No. 3 seed Dwyane Wade's Band-Aids vs. No. 4 seed Deron Williams' sick crossover. Last round, Wade just clipped the Spurs' two beards, while Deron crossed up and out Barack Obama's name. Another look at the nominees:
No. 3 Dwyane Wade's Band-Aids: Right before the All-Star break, Heat All-Star guard Dwyane Wade took a Juwan Howard elbow to the face, and the resulting gash required six stitches to cover up. Ever the fashion plate, "Wade proceeded to saunter several styles of suture cover" before the league said enough already, Pookie.
No. 4 Deron Williams' crossover: Ryne Nelson: "Deron's crossover is flat out disgusting. Being able to move 210 pounds from one direction to another in a split second is what makes it so filthy." Jason Terry knows what's up. (Not him.)
So, who/what makes it through to the next round? What do you love more? Vote today.
WINNER -- D'Will's crosover with 63% of the vote.
