NBA Haikus - 2011-2012 Season Preview - The Atlantic Division

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.

For our first installment of NBA Haikus, we dive into the Eastern Conference’s Atlantic 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.

Eastern Conference - Atlantic Division:

Boston Celtics:
A bad trade gets worse
Clippers’ pick and Green, useless
Pull the plug, Danny
__________

New Jersey Nets:
Must trade for Dwight
So you can resign Deron
Brooklyn here they come
__________

New York Knicks:
Need a center, bad
Drop point guard for a center
Need a point guard, bad
__________

Philadelphia Sixers:
A calm Doug Collins
Mediocrity lives here
No sun for Philly
__________

Toronto Raptors:
If Dwane Casey can
Make Toronto play defense
Ed Davis will shine
__________

I have not so strong body.
— New Toronto Raptor Jonas Valanciunas, who should fit right in on that team.
With the 5th pick, the Toronto Raptors select messing up their franchise even further.

NBA Logo Playoffs - Sweet 16

Well hey there basketball fans. Let’s get to it.

We’ve got a really great matchup to kick things off today, as the classic Chicago logos goes head-to-head with a crowd favorite from Denver. Our second matchup features an old-school Grizzlies logo and the timeless Raptors.

Get voting! (and don’t forget to eat your Wheaties)

NBA Logo Playoffs - Round 1

Yes we might be absolutely-Bob Knight-crazy, but today we are rolling out not one, not two, but THREE logo matchups for your voting pleasure.

Today we’ve got a sweet WNBA logo (I know, but it’s really cool) taking on a classic Chicago emblem, two great Raptors logos, and some old school pre-He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named Cavaliers fun with a nice clean Pacers logo.

Whew. Get voting! (and don’t forget to do all three!)

The Pathos of Julian Wright
Maybe I should get a burrito after this? Naw, that would be 3 in 3 nights. That’s too many burritos. Especially for an athlete! But I love ‘em. I love burritos. I hate not playing and I love burritos, and I don’t care if coach begs me to sub in — ‘Julian we can’t win without you! I was a fool to think otherwise' — I'm not going to sub in. I'm just going to sit here and think about mission burritos, and stare at that cheerleader's burrito— I mean ass.

DeMar DeRozan is developing rather nicely. Now only if he could hit a three…

DeMar DeRozan tweets a glimpse of what he’ll try at the dunk contest.
Hope the Raptors have a good insurance policy.
