To be fair, despite the pained, accusatory look he's leveling at it in this photo, it's not as if Ronny Turiaf's(notes) BlockHand completely abandoned him during the New York Knicks' 120-118 loss to the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night. The gregarious Gonzaga grad (so much alliteration in the morning) and Knicks center did notch two blocks before fouling out of the contest with 1:50 remaining in the third quarter in just 12 minutes of work. That's right at his season average (1.9 blocks per game) in just under half the burn (Turiaf's getting 22.5 minutes per night). That is such good defensive efficiency, probably!
(Also, Ronny Turiaf's BlockHand is a pretty great name for a band that's destined to play three basement shows then break up after their first VFW Hall gig, citing "creative differences," which really means "Jamie learns that the girl he likes actually thinks Kyle's kinda cute." Accept it with my compliments and run with it, faux-rebellious, fuzz-loving suburban youth.)
But despite posting a pair of rejections, Turiaf had a rough night in the paint from a highlight perspective, getting victimized by Nuggets big men Shelden "Seriously, Call Me 'The Landlord'" Williams in the first quarter and Nene "Seriously, Don't Call Me Maybyner, or Even Use My Last Name, Because Brazil" Hilario in the third quarter.
