Second round, Sweet Sixteen action of our 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 roll out all eight Sweet Sixteen matchups over the course of today and tomorrow.
Up next in the so far, so chalk President Region: No. 1 seed Barack Obama, the 44th and current President of the United States vs. No. 4 seed Deron Williams' sick crossover. In the fisrt round Obama erased Marbury's head tattoo, while D-Will trashed the funny GTAS comics. Another look at the nominees:
No. 1 Baller-in-Chief, Obama: The White House is just a mile or so from the Verizon Center, 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. He also has a Ginobili-like look to his on-court game.
No. 4 Deron Williams' crossover: Ryne Nelson: "Deron's crossover is flat out disgusting. Being able to move 210 pounds from one direction to another in a split second is what makes it so filthy." Jason Terry knows what's up. (Not him.)
So, who/what makes it through to the next round? What do you love more? Vote today.
WINNER -- D-Will's crossover with 52% of the vote.
