Back in April, the Chicago Bulls held off the Magic 102-99 after a Jameer Nelson three-pointer came too late. Nelson congratulated Bulls guard Derrick Rose with a promise to "catch you in the second round" of the playoffs (video of the exchange is above; the mixing is not our doing) during Rose's post-game sideline interview.

That captured aside has led to some wonderful ribbing on behalf of the Atlanta Hawks who, according to Josh Smith, were "never [given] a chance": Hawks spokesman Arthur Triche announced on Twitter over the weekend that he would leave a pair of 300-level tickets for Nelson for yesterday's game. He wrote that he was "taking a page out of Jerry Glanville's book," the former NFL coach who would leave tickets for Elvis before games. The Hawks won last night, 103-95, but Nelson reportedly did not make the trip to Chicago to see the win. There must be some kind of Bolt Bus deal from Orlando to Atlanta for Game 3.
