I've finally updated the NBA Heavyweights toy over in the right sidebar. The current top heavyweight is Boston, with a tremendous 9-1 record. Phoenix is the current beltholder, and has a 3-1 record. The next heavyweight championship bout is tomorrow, Thursday night, on TNT, against San Antonio (who came into the year holding the belt, but have just a 3-2 record in championship matches). This promises to be a knockdown, drag-out fight as the two teams play for the coveted Beaneball NBA Heavyweight Championship Belt.
Phoenix, by the way, comes in having won three straight, while the Spurs have lost the same number in a row, getting beat twice by good teams (New Orleans and Utah) and once by a terrible team (Seattle).
