As promised, some of the TSJ staff is entering into the fray, and we’ve been posting their picks throughout the week. Today, Chris Lathrop, the man behind “Your Mom Was Hot” and several of our most beloved feature articles joins the madness.

Here’s what Chris had to say about his team:

“I’m not much of a fan of the NBA during the regular season (too many damn teams, too many damn games, and my beloved Pistons suck canal water). So I selected my squad (hereinliestherub) as a woman would–based largely on superficial and ultimately meaningless criteria. I chose Carlos Boozer because I look like him from the neck up when my Van Dyke is connected to my sideburns; Rodney Stuckey because he’s a Piston; Grant Hill because he used to be a Piston; Brook Lopez because he’s Latino, etc. Let’s see how that works out for me.”

Think you can do better? Click here to sign up and prove it. You could walk away with some easy money for your troubles. The carnage erupts tonight, Friday, April 8, 2011. So don’t delay! Head to and get your team built now!
