Welcome to the Final Four of our completely pointless, albeit oddly entertaining Bedlam Tournament. Thanks to your help, we compiled a list of 32 things that you may or may not love about the NBA and seeded them into four regions. Voting is open for both semifinal matchups until Tuesday at midnight.
Our second Final Four matchup of the day: No. 1 seed Dikembe Mutombo vs. No. 7 seed Darko Milicic's epic Hulk Hogan moment. Last round, Mutombo killed the Hornets' in-game entertainment, while Darko put an end to the half-court shots tournament run. Another look at the nominees:
No. 1 DIKEMBE MUTOMBO: You can vote for Deke because of the 18 strong years. You can vote for Deke because of the finger wag and multiple Defensive Player of the Year awards. You can even vote for Deke because his voice makes you laugh or because that "Who Wants To Sex Mutombo?" tale is still comedy gold. Me? I'm voting for Deke because he's trying to make a difference.
No. 7 DARKO'S RIPPED JERSEY: During the start of the second half vs. the Rockets on Dec. 8, Grizzlies forward Darko Milicic picked up a fourth quick foul, which he responded to by promptly getting a tech and then ripping his jersey straight down the middle ala Hulk Hogan.
So, who/what makes it through to the final round? What do you love more? Vote today.
WINNER -- Darko's ripped jersey with 53% of the vote.
