Create-a-Caption: Shane Battier has added a new defensive wrinkle

I mean, really, when you think about it, it was only a matter of time before Shane Battier(notes) started experimenting with mind control. The Houston Rockets' defensive stopper has always sought to exploit any possible advantage when checking opposing scorers, and there's only so much that statistical analysis/persistent hand-in-the-facery can accomplish. Mind control is an inexact science, of course — this is why the U.S. Army never deployed that telepathic ray gun, and why Monta Ellis(notes) scored 46 points last night — but eventually, Battier will get the hang of it.

Best caption wins a black magic telepathy spell. Good luck.

In our last adventure: Wayne Ellington points 'em out.

Winner, Roger Mason(notes) Jr. = Hero: "Now Wayne, point to the area where coach Rambis hurt you."

Runner-up, David K: "OMG! Look! A T'Wolves fan!"

Second runner-up, DTF: "Hey, let's jump the Bucks. I got dibs on Bogut's arm, you get Bango." (EDITOR'S NOTE: Bad idea.)
