When Ballerball got the opportunity to join the Truehoop Network, I made a promise to myself to no longer ignore a people group that is “starved for attention.”  They have been pushed aside for too long and we are here to fix that.

So fear not – Emo/Basketball Children – we are here with a column just for you!

Basketball teams do a lot through the course of a season.  They win. They lose.  They choke.

They also… feel.

Let’s take a look at the classic, “The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most” album by Dashboard Confessional and see how each song and best describe what a team is feeling right now.

Track 1: The Brilliant Dance

Insta Wizards FINAL

 

Washington has the worst record in the league.  Nobody really cares, either.

 

Track 2:  Screaming Infidelities 

Cavs Instagram

Poor Kyrie.  The single only bright spot in Cleveland.

 

Track 3: The Best Deceptions

Insta Magic Final REAL

 

After D-12 completely turned this team upside down – all they can do now is think about what could have been before the betrayal.

 

Track 4: This Ruined Puzzle

INSTA Mavs FINAL REAL

 

With all the new pieces the Mavs have picked up and continue to pick up and drop… and pick up again – this is turning out to be a much worse team than expected.

 

Track 5: Saints and Sailors

Insta Thunder FINAL

 

Have you seen Durant play lately?  He’s been kicked out of games and getting techs like it’s his job.  #KDISNOTNICE

 

Track 6: The Good Fight

Insta Kings Final

 

The Maloof Brothers are the worst.

 

Track 7:  Standard Lines

Insta Rockets Final

 

Jeremy Lin and James Harden both left their prior teams to join a surprisingly good Rockets team.  Those prior teams are doing just fine too.

 

Track 8:  Again I Go Unnoticed

Insta Wolves FINAL

 

The Wolves can’t catch a break.  They have no hope without Kevin Love.

 

Track 9: The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most

Insta Lakers Final REAL2

 

The words speak for themselves.

 

Track 10:  This Bitter Pill

Insta Suns Final

 

The Phoenix Suns is no longer being run by the ever-so-quick Steve Nash and they are even worse because of it.

 

So that does it for Emo/Basketball.

Hands Down this is the best column I can ever remember…
