Welcome back to another edition of Caption This. That’s Rockets guard Steve Francis wearing the Barack Obama blazer (sequins on velvet, no less) while he was on the inactive list for last night’s game in Houston against the Celtics. The tall Asian fellow to the right is Yao Ming. The Celtics won the game 103-99.

Feel free to post a suggested caption in the comments section. I will post some selections tonight. Remember, clever > crass partisanship.

(UPDATED)

Here's a Sweet 16:

“In Texas, nothing says you dislike a candidate more than laser-sighting his supporters.” (Caveman HC6)

“Finally, I know what was in Marcellus Wallace's briefcase!” (Finsterbaby)

“Francis sends out a subtle message to the non-believers that Obama will indeed set a shining example.” (vgtwoomph)

“Now let me get this straight. You go into a little room with a curtain and you can select who you want to run the country? It'll never work.” (kawalski)

“Yao, I think we need to talk about redistributing the ball.” (Mark G)

“Steve Francis and Yao Ming make their famous dolphin hand shadow during a timeout.” (Rickapolis; also DJ Chris and TexasTiger66)

“Yao, I will get you that puppy I promised you soon.” (gill)

“Yao Ming informs Steve Francis that, while happy for him with Obama's election, China will indeed own the entire United States in two years.” (Duke of Earle)

“Yao Ming asks Steve Francis if he would be just as excited if Alan Keyes would have won the Republican nomination.” (Anthony Verna)

“Yao cranes to behold the likeness of Sarah Palin embroidered into the front of Francis' shirt.” (fattymatty)

“Wow, my grandmother has the same outfit to play mahjong in, of course hers says, ‘Mao Zedong.’” (ahegel)

“And in New York, Stephon Marbury looked resplendent in his Walter Mondale smoking jacket.” (Tim in NY)

“How ironic -- the number of sequins on Steve's blazer exactly matches the number of electoral votes McCain received.” (Jimmy Chitwood)

“Steve Francis is quietly campaigning to be named Secretary of Pimping.” (tiacheryl; The Card Says Moops worked along the same line)

“So Yao, tell me, who did you vote for in China's last election?” (AF1)

“Steve Francis shows what can be accomplished with the BeDazzler.” (Marshall K.; also saharafrog and Mark G)
