This is what I like to call schadenfreude. Dwight Howard took part in a great Orlando tradition at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards this past weekend, and he was certainly very deserving of it (h/t The Basketball Jones):
Yes, that was fun.
So was the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament. I hope everyone got a good look at Marcus Smart, Shabazz Muhammad and Anthony Bennett because they were all gone in the second round and did not even make it to the weekend games. I know for whatever reason whenever I watch a game, it seems I catch them all when they have awful games.
Even Ben McLemore struggled this weekend. And he is the presumptive No. 1 pick at the moment.
So let's talk NCAA Tournament for a brief moment.
We are two rounds into the Orlando Magic Daily bracket challenge, and you all are kicking my ass. I was in last place after the second round and have climbed up to 17th.
Our leader after the first weekend is Team Jonah. However, you will notice that he does not have a ton of possible points remaining because he lost three Final Four teams and his national runner-up, Saint Louis.
Translation? This is still anyone's race. Even I am still in it with 1240 possible points remaining.
The set of inaugural year Magic cards are still up in the air!
