• Isiah Thomas:
We haven't had a stiff list since the season started a week and a half ago. As a trivia nerd and sports news junkie, here is my version of the stiffs list:
Still plotting to ruin the New York Knicks and court LeBron. The scariest part is that Melo apparently calls him for counsel.
• Denver Broncos:
I'm not going to beat a dead horse, but I will brag about picking up Brandon Lloyd from waivers for my fantasy team early in the season.
• The Charlotte Bobcats court-wiping crew.
Couldn't get a wet spot wiped down fast enough, making for an awkward Vince Carter tumble. Since I am pulling for the Magic to stand against the Heat in the east, I hope Vince is OK.
• Chris Marlowe
Apparently just about the only person in an alternate universe who has the misfortune of not being Carmelo Anthony. Cute commercial, though. Notice how, true to form, Melo's defense is suspect when he allows himself to score the winning shot.
• Kevin Garnett
Allegedly calls Charlie Villanueva "cancer patient" during on-court trash talking to get under the skin of the Pistons player who has no hair because of an unrelated illness. Anything people wear ribbons for should be off-limits when it comes to trash talk. Right?
