Whats Doin: Delonte West gives Gordon Hayward a ‘Wet Willy’

Sunday Six Pack: The Epic 2010 New Years Edition

Having watched the first half of yesterday’s Celtics vs Cavs game, and the last quarter of today’s Raptors vs Cavs game (thank you ILP), I find myself for once agreeing with the Big Diesel (or “The Big Witness Protection” as he’s now apparently known in Cleveland).
