Feeling blue? Life got you down? If so, there’s no better link than www.sadtrombone.com. In fact, that site is so good we here at All Ball have decided to hand out the Sad Trombone of the Week Award in its honor.
The STOTWA will go to the person or team in the NBA who through on-court ineptitude or off-court shenanigans most deserves to hear the dulcet tones of the sad trombone.
For our inaugural award, the winner is pretty apparent. Sure, the Heat rebounded nicely Wednesday night in Philly, but it’s still hard to shake the image of Miami’s opening quarter of play this season when the BIG THREE (you must use all-caps) managed a whopping nine points against Boston. Nine points in twelve minutes? Reggie almost got that in nine seconds! That’s not exactly what we were promised when this happened.
And so for that, the Miami Heat are hereby awarded the Sad Trombone of the Week. Wah-Wah-Wah-Waaaaah.
