Rookies get owned by Dwight Howard

by Zettler Clay IV

The new center in L.A. was finally cleared for 5-on-5 runs. While this new center is being coy about his return date, a couple of rookie centers on the Lakers’ roster got down and dirty in the paint with said center:



Poor Robert Sacre and Greg Somogyi, who looked like they just faced basketball hell. They shouldn’t worry though. The rest of the league’s big men could be mimicking their expressions sooner rather than later.

VS

North Carolina Tar Heels

Starters (all stats per 48 minutes):

Marvin Williams, Hawks: 16.9 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.6 blocks, 1.0 steals
Raymond Felton, Nuggets: 20.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 11.2 assists, 0.2 blocks, 2.2 steals
Tyler Hansbrough, Pacers: 24.4 points, 11.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.5 blocks, 1.3 steals
Vince Carter, Suns: 23.6 points, 6.6 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 0.4 blocks, 1.5 steals
Ty Lawson, Nuggets: 20.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 8.5 assists, 0.1 blocks, 2.0 steals

Missed the cut: Ed Davis, Raptors; Wayne Ellington, Timberwolves; Brendan Haywood, Mavericks; Antawn Jamison, Cavaliers (injured); Brandan Wright, Nets

Team synopsis: With Jamison hurt, Hansbrough rides his recent hot streak into the starting lineup for the Tar Heels, which is a good thing for UNC because this team lacks an inside presence otherwise. Lawson and Felton take turns at the point in Denver, but share the backcourt here. Vinsanity may not be the force of nature he once was, but North Carolina will still need him to be the go-to scorer on this team.

The best part of this story is the name of the company who produced the calendar – a Wisconsin company called Perfect Timing.

Perfect timing indeed.
