Day five 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 and seeded them into four regions. Today we unveil the final eight match-ups of the first round. Voting will remain open until Sunday.
At last, our final first round match-up! Whew. To finish it off in the Sheed Region: No. 2 seed LeBron James vs. No. 15 seed Sam Cassell's huevos. Those have to be two of the best photos in the entire tournament. A closer look at the nominees:
No. 2 LeBron James: "After this season, nobody will care about [LeBron James] anymore, he will be old news (he was old news to me before the draft started that's how overhyped he was). So after next years 1st choice is picked people will drop their Lebron gear and go to the next "Big Star". He's just a fad." -- Yahoo commenter "iluvmarkcuban_n_hatedavidstern", November 10th 2003. (Woops.)
So, who/what makes it through to the second round? What do you love more? Vote or dance.
