… And Three From Jay Caspian Kang
1. The Charlotte Bobcats will make the playoffs, but Bismack Miyombo will average less than eight minutes a game. Kemba will enrage stat-heads with largely inefficient play, but will win rookie of the year honors for leading the Bobcats to a 34-32 record and the seven seed in the East. Gerald Henderson puts up 15 a game and signs a five-year, $60 million extension, good for the worst contract in the league.
2. Manny Pacquiao beats Floyd Mayweather in a controversial split decision after which Floyd launches into an epithet-laden tirade, which, of course, is followed up with a dis track titled, "Fuck Bob Arum." Things that rhyme with Arum: "Chair 'em," "Dare' em," "Share 'em."
3. Jimmer puts up 14 a game for the Kings. John Hollinger adjusts the bottom end of PER as a result.
#3 makes me laugh. the hendo one makes me very nervous.
