I don't know about you guys, but it sure warmed my heart to see Jason Terry(notes) and Benny the Bull rekindle their comedic partnership before the Dallas Mavericks took on the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night. We all remember how ugly their split was — when you're banging out the Mirage every night for 10 years, I guess familiarity can breed contempt, and you know what the Good Book says about how money can ruin even the best of friendships. (It says that it can, I think.) So given how icy things had become over the years, it was pretty special to see a thaw. Even if only for a moment.
Best caption wins an important tutorial on how to perform a fake eye-poke. Good luck.
In our last adventure: Blakey GriffGriffs gets a little stretch and a bend. No word as to whether or not he dipped his toe in a jacuzzi, baby. (Yep. Tenacious D jokes in 2011. Wow.)
Winner, JG: We can dance if we want to. We can leave your friends behind. 'Cause your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance, well, they're no friends of mine.
Runner-up, Andrew: A show of hands ... who wants to be traded?
Second runner-up, indeedproceed: Blake Griffin(notes), thinking: "And I put my hands up, they're playin' my song, the butterflies fly away / Stretchin my glutes like yeah / Stretchin my hip flexor like yeah ..."
A Special Commendation in Ruling, Movies It's Difficult to Comfortably Reference Nowadays Thanks to the Sports Guy Division, goes to denmark240 for casting Blake and Los Angeles Clippers strength and conditioning coach Richard Williams as Trent and Sue:
Griffin: "Is the teleprompter lady looking at me yet?"
Griffin: "How 'bout now?"
Williams: "Give it up, man, she ain't looki ... wait, she just looked."
Griffin: "Told you."
