BDL's completely pointless, albeit oddly entertaining, Bedlam Tournament continues. Thanks to your help, we've compiled a list of 32 things that you may or may not love about the NBA and seeded them into four regions. We'll unveil all of the first round match-ups over the course of this week. Voting will remain open until Sunday.
Our final match-up in the President Region: No. 1 seed Barack Obama, the 44th and current President of the United States vs. No. 8 seed Stephon Marbury's head tattoo. A closer look at the nominees:
No. 1 Baller-in-Chief, Obama: The White House is only a mile or so from Verizon Center, the Wizards arena in the heart of DC's Chinablock, and yet no president had attended a game there since 2000. Well, that changed in February, when President Obama sat courtside to watch his hometown Bulls take on the Wizards. He had a pint, read the game program and talked a little trash. Incredible.
No. 8 Stephon Marbury's head ink: Much like Mike Tyson, who went through a stretch of bizarre events and face ink, then-Knicks guard Stephon Marbury reached the point of no sane return this past summer by tattooing a Starbury logo on his head. We had a little fun with it.
So, who/what makes it through to the next round? What do you love more? Vote today.
POLL CLOSED: The First Fan wins with 72% of the vote.
