The Hater and I went to see the OKC Hornets and the Cleveland Cavaliers play tonight in the Ford Center. We were excited to see LeBron and CP3 do their things.

CP3 made some crazy drives to the basket for some serious pointage. He ended up with 30 points, 11 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 steals... not to mention being clutch in the 4th quarter. It was a Vince Young performance of the NBA.

LeBron had some good plays in the first quarter, but the Hornets figured out how to 2-man him to keep him in check. That's really all you can do against that powerhouse. If Cleveland had bunches of good players it would have been nasty.

Cleveland did have another player who was virtually unstoppable in the first half of the game. We called him Side Show Bob because he had crazy hair. (In the nose bleed section we get to name players special nicknames because it's hard to see their numbers. So we cheered for Ogre, Side Show Bob, and LeBron for the Cavaliers. And we could always tell CP3 by his blue shoes. Forrest Gump was right; it's always about the shoes.) Side Show Bob must've been tired during the second half because he didn't play so well. And CP3 dunked on him, which we think hurt his feelers. (Don't you think the picture on the left of Side Show Bob looks like Cleveland's Anderson Varejao on the right?)

We came back to our apartment to meet our neighbor, a Hornet fan. We gave him our yellow plastic whackers ("thunderstix") and relived the game for him. He offered us some $10 nosebleed tickets against the Lakers and Detroit later in January. We had such a good time tonight that we might have to take him up on both games.

Stat Boy AKA The Hater:

It wasn't CP3 who dunked on Side Show Bob. But one of our guys did, and it did seem to hurt both of their feelers.
