No, I'm dead serious. After not playing...at all? Like, for a very long time? Brian Cardinal (nicknamed THE CUSTODIAN) has entered the game for teh Dallas Mavericks. His appearance lasted less than two minutes, but it was still highly entertaining to see Cardinal on the floor. Can we use some kind of ridiculous yet to be invented magic to make Caron Butler healthy, please? I know they don't play the same position, but more bodies on the Mavs might stop this madness.
As for actual basketball that is not simply about the lulz, Dwyane Wade continues to be the best player on the floor for the Miami Heat. He's finally starting to get to the free throw line in addition to his great field goals, and he has 11 more points than anyone else playing in this game. The Heat are looking more and more in control as this game goes on, and LeBron James isn't even doing anything. This is a seriously scary thought for Mavericks fans.
