As The Bulls Turn: Hot Tub Time Machine > The Bulls

Full disclosure: I went to go see Hot Tub Time Machine last night. I forgot to record the Bulls-Suns game and I still haven't seen the episode of Lost from last night either. Scanning the internets this morning, I'm pretty sure I made the right choice. HTTM is funny and entertaining and [SPOILER ALERT] the good guys win. The Bulls? They're sorta funny in a clown crying way and they are not entertaining to watch, also [SPOILER ALERT] they aren't the bad guys but they don't win.

Now, back to the lecture at hand, this Suns-Bulls tilt really sticks out for a few reasons, one: Jannero Pargo is terrible at basketball, two: Steve Nash is very good at basketball and three: Jannero Pargo [terrible at basketball] should not defend Steve Nash [very good at basketball] at any point but never in the fourth quarter of a close game. Why wasn't Nash blanketed by Kirk Hinrich (UPDATE: Hinrich rolled his ankle and left after only 17 mins. of game time, got it) or somebody? ANYBODY besides Jannero Pargo.

Pargo, I don't like writing about sad things and how bad you are at basketball, but, dude, you are not very good at basketball and you hurt your team when you're hucking up 15 shots. That's only one fewer than Derrick Rose, who, fyi, is much better at basketball and I don't even "love" his shot selection. Anyway, Hot Tub Time Machine star John Cusack would've probably had as much success defending Nash as you did. Pargo kills this team with his defense and offense and Vinny Del Negro needs to start not playing him. But also, only eight games left and the Bulls are not making the playoffs and you should really just go see Hot Tub Time Machine instead of watching the Bulls.

Oh! and Flip Murray (yet another body that could've guarded Nash) made this ridiculous shot (it didn't count) but wow. Nice work, Flip.
