CARICATURE CONTEST: We have new caricatures for the last caricature contest.
Four teams playing by now (1). You can participate with a new team. You must simply post here a comment with the name of four players plus yourself and the position of each one in the black unit: PG, SG, F, PF and C. The result of this contest depends on the points of your team at Jersey Contest for Wed, Apr 16 game against Phoenix.
To win one caricature you need your team wins, first, and you should win to your teammates, second. Who wins he chooses the caricature that he wants. There will be some other prizes for the people who showed interest in this contest, what will be detailed once the contest is finished. The rest of caricatures will be sent to Dave, if he doesn´t disagree, so he can do with them what he wants.

THE RED BARON
MANY IFS IN BE:
IF you can keep your head when all around you
Are losing theirs and blaming your team,
If you can trust your team when all fans doubt it,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can post and not be tired by others posting,
Or being ignored, don't deal in ignoring others,
Or being attacked, don't give in way to attacking,
And yet don't look too good, nor write too wise.
If you believe in youth- and not make youth an excuse;
If you trust in the coach and still have your view;
If you can´t say the LA team name or worst
If you can meet with "Trade", "Pick" and "Fire" posts
And treat and read those three just the same;
If you can bear to see a serious basketball thread
killed by Tominhawaii or your comment erased by Dave,
Or watch the Diaries you gave your life to, lost,
And stoop and build 'em up with some typing errors.
If you can remember all your team´s best wins
as you remember all your team worst loses,
And follow every game as the first time
In a first Game Open Thread.
If you can cheer on your team again and again
long after the possibilities of a victory are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing to do
Except to post in the Thread: 'Hold on!'
If you can share with the BE´s crew and keep another life,
Or learn with them good English grammar - nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all fans count with you, but only
one or two or three or fourty too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving last game´s minute
With three hundred sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the NBA and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you´re a Blaseredger, my friend!
IF by Kipling remasterized for BE.
