Good job, good effort, Danilo Gallinari and Klay Thompson. But you've got a long way to go to catch up to Jarrett Jack and Andre Iguodala. That's the veteran stuff, right there — the expressive, anguished face. That's what you're looking for, and sometimes you have to put yourself in some really uncomfortable positions to get there. Pain is beauty, beauty is pain. You learn that after your fifth season, as I understand it, so Gallo might get there next year. Let's keep our fingers cross and our faces screwed.

Best caption wins shoutouts from Brook Lopez and Willie Green. Good luck.

Winner, Mark M.: "If you even think about joining the Heat next season, I'll kill you. Seriously."

Runner-up, Larry B: Garnett: "Hey Paul, don't look now ... but are those vultures circling over our heads?"

Second runner-up, Jason: "Don't look at the score ... ugh, you looked at the score."

A Special Commendation in Ruling, Reasons Why I Need To Put My Hater Blockers On Division, goes to Kahlua, who authored the following exchange:

Paul Pierce: "#$%$ Devine? is that the best caption you could come up with?"

Garnett: "I know, I'm so freakin' embarrassed for him right now."

Nicely done.
