Let’s talk free throws for a minute.
Last night Dwight Howard set the NBA record for free throw attempts in a game (39), but hitting only 21 of them didn’t really bring him close to breaking the record for free throws made in a made (Chamberlain, 28).
Meanwhile in Milwaukee, the Pistons and Bucks set another free throw record, combining to hit all 41 out of 41 free throws on the night. Greg Monroe, a career 77% charity striper, went 8 for 8, also putting up 32 points and 16 rebounds.
For that, Mark Price applauds you. Mark Price and America applaud you.
It’s going to be a short season after an even shorter off-season. We had limited time to track player movement, team development and bring you in depth team analysis, like we did last year. So the bros and bro-ettes at NBAO decided we’ll follow in the footsteps of the NBA and provide you with abbreviated team previews in the best way possible, haikus.
Our second installment of NBA Haikus is dedicated to the Eastern Conference’s Central Division. A division that seems to be heading towards mediocrity, given the aging Celtics, the lack of depth of the Knicks, uncertainty of the Nets and the permanent stench of the Raptors.

The first round of the NBA Logo Playoffs is almost wrapped up. Tomorrow will be the final day of matchups, and then we will either start the second round or wait until next week.
Today we have two alternate logos, the Hornets and the Grizzlies, squaring off. In the other ring, two great 90s logos are facing off as the Rockets take on the Pistons.
