Remember Earl Boykins? The tiny 5'5'' former Wizards guard who personified the ridiculousness of the 2009/10 season? The guy who was brought in from the Italian League, brought cheap thrills early on, then decided to take advantage of the fact that it was easier for him to dribble a lot because of his size? The guy who prompted Bullets Forever to say this at the end of last season:
I really did not like the Earl Boykins signing when it happened. I did not like it when Boykins was playing well and "saving" us in fourth quarters. I did not like it when he was taking Randy Foye's minutes. I did not like it when he started to stink in the fourth quarter. I did not like it at the end of the season when he was essentially letting teams back into the game all by himself.
Otherwise, he worked out great!
Why am I bringing this up? Because Earl Boykins just beat the Los Angeles Lakers on his own last night. He scored 22 points, raining threes in the fourth quarter to allow the Bucks to pull away for a 98-79 win. Shoutout to you, Earl Boykins, for making Kobe Bryant angry and for being "cold."
