Here's the live blog I promised of the draw for the Spree bobblehead contest:
11:18 am. Tore up 11 pieces of paper, labelled 1 to 11 for the voters in order of their votes.
|Better luck next time, Moochie.|
11:24 am. Spencer, former apprentice blogger at the late (*sniff*) Hockey Page, drew # 6, with another one stuck on it. The one stuck on falls off, it's No. 7.
11:25 am. Looked it up. Winna Winna Chicken Dinner. Illan Kramer. Illan, you've won Spree! Congratulations.
Illan, please e-mail me and we'll arrange delivery or pickup of your prize. And here's how JABS voters cast for their 10 additions to the NBA's 50 Greatest list of a few years back, TNT announcing their list on Saturday night's All-Star HORSE competition out of Houston. Thanks to all for taking part, and frankly, isn't it going to be great to have one of the JABS 10 perhaps trying out for our hometown team?
The JABS 10
Unanimous: Kobe, Duncan 11 each
In easily: Dominique 9, Iverson 9, McAdoo 9, Garnett 8
The final four: Reggie Miller 6, Steve Nash 5, Dennis Rodman 5, Gary Payton and Jason Kidd 4 (tied)
Just missed: Nowitzki 3, Dumars 3, Ben Wallace 2, Bob Lanier 2
Single votes: Alex English, McGrady, Wade, Nobody but Shaq and Wilt, Petrovic, the Bonzi/Bowen hybrid, Muggsy Bogues, Manute Bol, Chris Mullen, Mark Price, Jeff Hornacek (and his ear tug), Bernard King, Adrian Dantley, Connie Hawkins, Chet Walker, Alonzo Mourning.
None: Moochie Norris.
