NEW ORLEANS (AP) - What’s that you say, you’ve heard whispers of real Bracketology lately? Smacketology? Nonsense. Just because you saw Joe Lunardi on SportsCenter yesterday discussing the “Last Four [L]In” doesn’t give you any right to ignore the hottest show in the French Quarter — I speak, of course, of the Diss’es Jeremy Lin Nickname Bracket. You don’t even need to be a hoity-toity ESPN [L]Insider (or a Wire fan) to appreciate our bracketology.

One final note. Jeremy Lin was born in 1988. I was born in 1988. I’m pretty sure this makes me the foremost expert on 1990′s pop-culture reference Jeremy Lin nicknames, and I’m picking Linja Turtle for the upset win. This may or may not have anything to do with the fact I spent hours playing with Donatello’s battle bike alone in my room because my parents wouldn’t buy me a Super Nintendo. That rumor is unconfirmed by my sources at this time.
