2-for-1: Late Game Lame Brain, and the Z-Bo Boys (Bx3 #20 + #21)

Previous Comic - Next Comic
Sometimes people wonder where the future generations of sports fans will come from when all playoff games end (and sometimes start) well past the would be younger viewer's bedtimes. I say forget about the kids, what about me? What happens when my work performance drops off so much from lack of sleep that I get canned and can't afford cable and game tickets anymore. Maybe I should move to the Mountain time zone. Or maybe you should tell all your friends about Bx3 so that the comic takes off and I can become self supportive- allowing me to work at home and sleep in. Sounds like a plan!

Below is a little comic fan-service to the Grizz and their fans congratulating them on their big first playoff series victory. The two-for-one!

Unenlightened Fandom (Bx3 #19)

Previous Comic - Next Comic

I like watching basketball, especially when it's good basketball. The Lakers and the Celtics play good basketball, so I like watching the Lakers and Celtics play (we like to keep it simple here at Bx3).

But does that mean that I like to see Boston and LA win? Let's just say I'm really considering putting Lev's t-shirt from the comic above into production- because I personally know at least one person who would wear it. (That person is me. See, simple! I even spell things out that I don't need too.)

P.S. I really respect Boston's and LA's fan-bases. Please don't stop reading my comic. I need your revenue sharing! These small market fans don't do enough to keep me afloat!

No Comment (Bx3 #18)

I know I'm guilty of at least 3 of these.  If not four.  How about you?

(The art-style this week is more a product of limited time than a new direction for the comic.  I wanted to get a comic out this week but didn't have time to color it proper and draw detailed backgrounds..  Hope it still reads okay.  Thanks.)

On Pace for a Lonely Existence (Bx3 #17)

Previous Comic - Next comic

 In a league where more than 50% of the teams make the playoffs, it's not that big of a tragedy that a team with a less than 50% record makes it in. Sorry Rocket's fans. Enjoy your slightly higher draft pick!

Check out this great article about the history of below .500 playoff teams from Pacer's site Eight Points, Nine Seconds.

Next time we meet, we'll be in the playoffs! Finally Laker's fans can watch games that count!  Until then...

If the Hot hand is a Placebo, I Don't Want to Know about it (Bx3 #16)

Previous comic  - Next comic

Chub putting in the work!

There's so much going on in the NBA right now- the last games of the playoff race, the MVP debate, Dominique decking an ex-ref (cathartic!), John Wall punching Z, a half-naked lady (bottom-half!) attacking the Mav's bench at Staple's center- that I thought I would do something a little different this week.  Real life being stranger than fiction and all that.

Anyways I'll be back next week with a comic making fun of the 8th seed in the East.  That's a promise I'm 40% guaranteed to keep.  See ya then.
