Kyle Weidie of Truthaboutit.com achieved sports media alchemy today. Rarely do you get a post about a meaningless late season NBA game that does more than make you ponder if you’ve been running the tub too long.
But Weidie, the Mary Seton of NBA Southeast Division bloggers, performed the miracle of making me care what happened at the Verizon Center last night.
Sunday evening, Andray Blatche of the Wizards was only one rebound away from a triple-double. With a little video editing magic, Weidie quickly chronicles Blatche’s delightfully desperate attempts during the last :30 to reach double figures in boards.
Not really sure what’s more embarrassing, Blatche’s hilariously selfish behavior or how much sheer delight I derived from it.
