NBA Trash Talk: Big Losers’ Ball

Volume XXIV

Hi, all.

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the inaugural Big Losers’ Ball. As advertised, this is the annual event in which the worst plays and players of the year are honoured, along with a select number of suits from the league’s thirty organisations. Unless you’re slower than Luc Longley in lead sneakers, you’ll already have picked up on the fact that this isn’t your average award ceremony. No arena was rented, no celebrities were invited, and no refreshments will be provided afterwards. However, the benefit of all this is that tickets are free, everyone is invited, and you don’t have to fight for control of the armrest with that fat guy who used to be in a boy band.

So, without further delay, we move to the main event.
