Ball Don't Lie - NBA


Second round action of our completely pointless, albeit oddly entertaining, BDL Bedlam Tournament continues. 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 final eight second-round match-ups. Voting will remain open until the end of Tuesday, EST.

We start day two of Bedlam second-round in the stacked Lord Baron Region. Up first: No. 1 seed Baron Davis' beard vs. No. 8 Steve Nash in transition. In the first round, BD's facial hair won 85% of the vote against Sean Williams' headband, while Nash flew past Manu's pump fake. Another look at the nominees:

No. 1 Baron Davis' beard: There is no chin behind Baron Davis' beard. There is only another beard.

No. 8 Steve Nash in transition: "I said to [Nash], 'Dammit, Steve, you penetrate the paint and you kick the ball out with one hand, you gotta do it with two hands.' And he said, 'If I do it with one hand, it's about three-tenths of a second faster, and my teammate is going to have a better look at the basket.'" -- Dick Davey, Nash's Santa Clara coach in NY Times' Play.

So, what/who makes it through to the Sweet Sixteen? What do you love more? Vote or die.
