It has been three years since the Atlanta Hawks passed on Chris Paul, who is most likely not human, in order to draft Marvin Williams. Marvin has been, how do we say, not better than CP3. In fact, even if Marvin becomes an All Star, it will still be a horrible choice. Unless Paul buys a motorized unicycle in the next few years anyway.
It has also been four year since Anchorman took the world by storm (I know, it doesn't feel that long), and yet somehow, it took until tonight, mid-FanHouse live blog, for the perfect nickname for Marvin to come to fruition.
As you can see below, just like Marvin, "Milk was a bad choice." I'll take credit for the inspiration, but have to give props to Seth from Posting and Toasting for actually putting the two together.
0:29 [Comment from Seth]Done and freaking done. From now on, whether or not the Hawks win today, and regardless of how much he's improved -- as Ziller noted mid-blog -- he will no longer be "Starvin' Marvin" or "That Guy That the Hawks Stupidly Took Instead of Chris Paul".
at least we can agree that they're both better than marvin williams
0:29 Ziller - Seth is correct
0:29 Brinson - Good call Seth. Lesson = Marvin was a bad choice. Like Milk.
[...]0:30 Brinson - Anchorman quotes are what you get in the middle of the eighth consecutive quarter of live blogging. Sorry.

new nickname for marvin? milk williams?
He will be known as Milk Williams. Because, sorry all of you lifelong Atlanta fans, but he was a bad choice.
