The Cavs Fly High Over the Hawks

Whenever LeBron is playing there’s always a strong chance of seeing something incredible; last night’s Hawks/Cavs game featured two such plays! First comes his Highness himself, LeBron taking one hard to the hoop and slamming one down right before the buzzer for the half.

Then late in the 4th quarter noted handgun owner Delonte West drives over the outstretched arms of Josh Smith to score 2 points the fun way. Fortunately, this explosion from Delonte doesn’t require police involvement.

Atlanta’s Hawk Tries to Steal the Spotlight

Hawks Mascot BasketballI hate attention hogs; for instance, the Atlanta Hawks real-life mascot Spirit, normally the hawk that flies down from the rafters during the pre-game and then his duties are done. But before game 2 against the Miami Heat, Spirit decided he wanted to hang around, scope out the babes, maybe eat a rabbit…

With 8:28 left in the first, Spirit sat on top of the scoreboard, then flew around a little bit before coming to a rest on top of the Hawks’ basket, refusing to budge. Proving their mettle, the players all refused to take the court until the big bad bird left the basket. Ultimately, Spirit’s handler was able to coax him off the hoop and out of the arena, to big cheers from the crowd and some of the players.

Dwyane Wade, with moderate assistance from his teammates then led the Heat to a victory.
