The 2009-10 Inaugural NBA Cliché Awards

Now I know most of you are probably thinking, "Wait, what?" and I can't really blame you for that, but stick with me. I was sitting on my couch watching my fifth consecutive hour of NBA TV trying to determine who I thought deserved the individual achievement awards for this season, when I came to realize something.

Now, I'm not sure if you have watched a whole lot of NBA TV before, but if you have, you know exactly what I mean when I say the commentary isn't really all that great. Don't get me wrong, I love the coverage they provide, and there is a definitely a reason I stay glued to that channel. It's just, sort of the minor league for former players that turn to announcing, and as a result, there are about four or five poorly used sports clichés per segment.

This got me thinking, people are using these clichés for a reason, and that is because they apply. So, I decided that I would take some of my favorite overly used sports clichés, and appoint them to a team based on relevant aspects of that teams season.

Simple right? Well, maybe not, but either way I digress, and present to you, the inaugural Cliché Awards.
