In honor of the comedy-classic The Hangover, as well as the unspeakably entertaining 2011 NBA Playoffs, I present to you a combination of Hangover quotes used to tell the story of the playoffs thus far; hopefully this will also subliminally trigger your subconscious to excite itself for The Hangover Part II.
Feel free to leave your thoughts.
With a nod to Bill Simmons, enjoy!
To Kobe Bryant. Yes, he dropped the double "F" bomb during the regular season, but it was too perfect.
The double F'er cost the five-time champion a hefty $100,000.
To Pat Riley, who pulls off the best Phil Wenneck hairstyle in all of the NBA.
Or is that Gordon Gekko?
To 21-year-old OKC shooting guard James Harden, who is currently sporting the most prolific beard in the NBA.
To ESPN NBA analyst Jalen Rose, who admitted to being legally drunk after crashing his car in a suburb of Detroit March 11.
To Michael Jordan and the Charlotte Bobcats, who missed the playoffs and wasted yet another season (slight pun intended).
To Andrew Bynum, after he blindsided sub-six-footer Maverick JJ Barea with an elbow minutes before he and the Lakers were swept.
e.g. 'Chicago Blackhawks', 'Chicago Cubs'
To Marc Gasol, simply because, well, I think you can figure it out for yourself.
To Udonis Haslem.
His much-anticipated return to the Miami Heat consisted of three minutes in which he missed a shot, recorded two fouls plus a technical and topped it off with a turnover.
To Carlos Boozer, for his amazingly annoying, incessant screams that occur on nearly every play involving the former Dukie.
To Hawks management, who find themselves having to justify the enormous and confounding six-year $119 million dollar contract given to semi-star Joe Johnson in the offseason.
Johnson averaged a meager 18.2 points and four rebounds in the playoffs.
To Dirk Nowitzki, whose performance in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals was a thing of beauty and something we may not see again for quite some time.
His 12-of-15 from the field, along with a perfect 24-of-24 at the line, led to a breathtaking 48 points; the most efficient 48 points the NBA has seen since the days of Wilt Chamberlain.
Those Larry Bird comparisons don't seem so insane anymore.
"And we'll never ever ever ever ever leave eachother!"
Admit it, no matter how much you hate 'em, this one had to make you smile.
