Hey guys, I’m Jack Maloney, the newest member of the HP crew. Throughout the playoffs I’ll be here with all sorts of important .gifs, videos, Vines, pictures, etc.
This is how excited I am to be here, so let’s get into it.
Miami Heat vs. Charlotte Bobcats
So the Heat gave a show of support to the Clippers by taking off their tops with the “Heat” logo and turning their warm-ups inside-out. This was cool.

As you probably heard, the great Dr. Jack Ramsay–one of the game’s greatest teachers and ambassadors–passed away this weekend. Over the years, countless people were influenced by Ramsay, including Heat coach Erik Spolestra. During the game, we were lucky enough to see a great picture of a young Spolestra and Dr. Jack.
As for the game itself, the Heat may have won, but the Bobcats did not go down with a fight and a few flashes of the future.
LOOK AT JOSH MCROBERTS OUT HERE FLOURISHING.
Last night was the last game ever played by the Bobcats. Farewell, Bobcats. It was an interesting, often disappointing, and occasionally entertaining run. But this is not a time for (Alonzo) mourning, because HORNETS BACK.
Indiana Pacers vs. Atlanta Hawks
And here we have a fan heckling the Pacers so loudly that he can be heard over the broadcast.
Lol Pacers. Good job, good effort, but the Hawks are our leaders now. Bow down to your new lord, Young Emoji.
MIKE SCOTT MADE IT — Rembert Browne (@rembert) April 29, 2014
Brilliant tweeting from Rem tha gawd.
By the way, I’ve obtained a special edition release of Mike Scott’s shot chart from tonight.
Also, I discovered something when re-watching some tape. Gotta be honest, this seems like it’s against the rules.
Hahahahah, Lance Stephenson wedgie! This deserves the pic, .gif and video treatment because it was both #rare and hilarious.

KYL3 KORV3R is in the building, and don’t you forget it.
Also, this is once again relevant. Is Roy Hibbert even still alive?

San Antonio Spurs vs. Dallas Mavericks
Awww yeahhhhh. Now this is some #sports.
MONTA ELLIS HAVE IT ALLLLLLLL.
………………………………………………. Dude. Dejuan Blair… hell you doing?
Alas, the Mavericks ended up falling just short, but at least they were out there Montaballing.
It is better to have Monta Balled and lost than to have never Monta Balled at all.
