Juwan Howard Breaks Out The Cabbage Patch During Miami Heat Victory Celebration

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENhhX4tPDuQ&feature=youtu.be

Juwan Howard shocked many people by still playing professional basketball.  People remember Howard from the Fab Five and he paid homage to his time there during the Miami Heat victory parade on Monday.  Howard broke out the cabbage patch, which is something he did to celebrate a win in 1992.

That is how old Juwan Howard is.  He is celebrating a championship by doing something he did in 1992.  I was not even one year old at the time his originally cabbage patch took place.  That shows you how old Howard is.  He has been doing goofy dances after basketball related stuff for 20 years.

I expect that this is the last we will see of Juwan Howard.  He has his ring so there is no point in him sitting on the bench anymore.  He even got to play in a clinching Finals game.  There is nothing more that he can do in professional basketball, so it makes sense for him to hang it up.

Back to the cabbage dance for a second.  That move debuted in and around 1987.  That means Juwan Howard has been doing goofy things like this while his teammates were barely alive.  That is when you know it is time to hang it up.  Your teammates were barely alive for a dance from the 80s, yet you rock it at a championship parade in 2012.  I guess you have to admire Howard for breaking out a classic, even if it shows his age.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.

Rondo Perfectly Guesses Atlanta's Final Play

Say what you will about Rajon Rondo, but there's no way to deny that he's an incredibly smart basketball player. Last evening against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sacramento Kings were up by three points with 1.9 seconds left, and Atlanta had one final possession to tie things up. Rondo immediately recognized the play the Hawks had drawn up and directed DeMarcus Cousins to an empty space on the floor where the Hawks were planning to send a player to take a three. Rondo's smarts made the Hawks botch the play, and the Kings held serve for the win.
