My favorite Hibachi, it's broke. Weep, Weep, Boo-hoo.

Howdy, y'all. Remember me? I'm Jordi Scrubbings, soul brother number one over at The Serious Tip. Once again, it's Thursday and that means it's my day in the sun here at YAYsports! NBA.

Before I get into any pro news, I just want to say I refuse to recognize the Florida Gators as college basketball National Champions. There are much more deserving teams, such as the Iona College Gaels. Not sure what a Gael is, but with the worst record in college basketball, they are my national champs.

Also, some quick housekeeping notes:

I know Jack Cobra already mentioned it, but I would like to give my own big shout-out to the Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2007, which includes Phil Jackson and North Carolina Coach Roy Williams. Although personally I don't think coaches should be admitted into the Hall of Fame until they are done coaching, I did read Phil Jackson's book Sacred Hoops a few years ago and it was really good.

Also a big congratulations to Lindsey Harding, the first pick of yesterday's WNBA draft. Go ahead, amaze your friends with that tidbit of knowledge.

Finally, in case you follow such news, former Knick, Warrior, and New Jersey Net Micheal Ray Richardson is now unemployed due to his lackluster impersonation of Mel Gibson.

Ok, on to the games of yesternight:

Agent Zero wounded as Bobcats maul Wizards - Gilbert Arenas suffered a possible season-ending injury to his knee-bone late in the first quarter of the Wizards' loss to Charlotte. Bloggers worldwide await first-person commentary from Gilbert via his personal blog.

Darko Milicic ejected and Dwight Howard dejected in loss to extinct dinosaur mascots - The Magic blew a 15-point lead and the Raptors won. Hedo Turkoglu(!) had 37 points.

Big man with Afro no go for Chicago - Ben Wallace had a sinus infection and did not play against his former team as the Bulls defeated the Pistons in Detroit. Detroit faithful asked for a refund as they came not to watch their Pistons, but to boo Wallace.

Los Angeles Boats defeat Los Angeles Bodies of Water in Los Angeles - The Clippers continued being a sneaky bunch, having now won seven of their last eight games. Their latest victims: the Kwame-less Lakers. Jellybean Bryant, Jr. led all scorers with 29 points.

Vertically challenged athlete stands tall in tank battle - The Battle of Kursk it was not, but the Milwaukee Bucks needed all of Earl Boykins's 65 inches and 32 points to defeat the Boston Celtics in a game neither team really wanted to win.

Well folks, I'll be back a few more times today with some other posts, so come on back now, ya hear.
