Lakers Baby
We are about a good month into the NBA season. I’ve spent many hours watching the games and highlights. After much analysis, here’s my own personal breakdown of the league so far.

Atlanta Hawks: The Hawks are still a middle tier team to me. They will probably still grab a playoff spot in the East, but they didn’t improve much during the offseason. Same problems from previous years are plaguing them this year…no bench outside of Jamal Crawford. Still think they overpaid for Joe Johnson, but I understand they needed to keep a scorer around.

Boston Celtics: Rondo is the conductor of the orchestra. They aren’t in tune when he’s not setting the tempo. They have a great bench, and great all-stars and future hall of famers, but again this is Rondo’s team. Not sure of how much Shaq is going to affect things yet either.

Kevin Hart recruitKevin Hart making his choice after being recruited. Maybe we put too much faith in high schoolers. Recruiting is one of the most important tools available to a college football coaches.  Good coaches and programs generally get rewarded with good recruiting classes. Good recruiting classes generally translate into wins on the field, however every year there is that one team or, in this years case, teams that underachieve despite having good recruits.  The problem with recruiting is there is no guarantee on any player, and some unheralded recruits can turn into stars. I just want to analyze some very big disappointments this past season. no comments

KobeHow is Kobe Bryant not top 10 all-time?  Based on what I usually will not entertain this to much because he is not retired but reading an article by Scoop Jackson made me wonder what are people using as criteria for this arguement?  Kobe's not done and with a tightened up knee after off season surgery one has to wonder what else does he need to prove t the basketball minds out there he is top 10.  no comments

JeterI wondered after George Steinbrenner passed if things would change in the Yankees organization. Yes, his children had been "running" things for some time, but his input was still felt there and given a lot of weight. With him gone, I wondered just how much the rest of the family would keep things going along the status quo. Just how much would certain players be worth to the new organization. I think we are about to find out. no comments

Gordon GeeGordon Gee, the Ohio State University president, had some comments in the last couple of days that criticized the teams like Boise State and TCU. Gordon Gee is not a football genius, but he has had a lot of experiences with colleges. He may understand the climate of college football and he makes decent points, but he is not the correct man to voice these opinions. Everyone is thinking it, but no one who means much to the sports world has said it aloud. Should we applaud Gee's comments or should we attack him? Below is an excerpt from his rant, you decide.

"Well, I don't know enough about the X's and O's of college football," Gee proclaimed while probably standing on a soapbox in front of a large mirror. "I do know, having been both a Southeastern Conference president and a Big Ten president, that it's like murderer's row every week for these schools. We do not play the Little Sisters of the Poor. We play very fine schools on any given day.

"So I think until a university runs through that gauntlet that there's some reason to believe that they not be the best teams to [be] in the big ballgame." (Graham Watson, Fanhouse)

Bama LogoThe Iron Bowl. It divides a state. It divides families. It's the biggest holiday in Alabama since Thanksgiving. Scratch that, it's bigger than Thanksgiving. Black Friday can't compete with it. The shops will be only slightly more crowded than usual. Wal-Mart may be crowded early with fans decimating the drinks and chips aisles for the party. Almost every eye in the state will be on that game. The fans whose teams wins will be ecstatic. The fans whose team loses will be devastated.The rest of the season hardly matters at this point. It's all about one game. Three hours. Those three hours control how the fans will feel for the next year. It all comes down to this. no comments

JabarThe Heat are in disarray, the Celtics are big by committee, the Magic are trying to rework some magic in D.Howards offensive game, the Lakers are dealing with Bynum and his injuries, the Rockets have Yao's issues and Portland has rolled snake-eyes again with their top pick of Greg Oden.  The injury of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar launched the career and status of Magic Johnson but why doesn't Kareem get more respect in the conversations as the greatest? no comments

DampierErick Dampier to the Heat?  Is this why Joel Anthony hasn't taken off his warmups in two games?  The Heat are a mess and adding Dampier is a bad game of Truth or Dare.  The truth is Erick Dampier can't make it through a n entire season with out injuries.  Truth Erick Dampier has been in the NBA 13 years and his stat line well its at least better than Kwame Brown's but 6'11" and career averages of 7.8 ppg and 7.4 rpg with 1.5bpg so how does this help the Heat? no comments

Erick DampierEarlier today I put up a quit post on the Dampier situation dubbed "Truth or Dare". The move went through they signed Erick Dampier and this is the beginning of the end Pat Riley has just crossed that very thin line between that of a genius and that of a insanity.  For the past months everyone has been trying to figure out how Riley managed to get Bron, Wade, and Bosh all in Miami, the moves were genius. An injury to Haslem, a 77 point game total and a Dampier signed contract situation has insanity set in?  no comments

Heat LogoThe NBA season isn't even a month old and yet the Miami Heat have yet to get it going.  The Heat have said publicly that they are on their own schedule but Clark Griswold must have coordinated this schedule next stop Wally World everyone in the "family truckster" for this quick trip back in time to what was supposed to be and what is the reality of the NBA season.  So with less than 15 games played what are the fans supposed to think the Heat look like an an Alaskan winter and the right now they are looking like they are being coached by a clueless Palin at the helm of this Alaskan winter wonderland outside in shorts ready to hoop it up on that road to no where that thing was about $20Mil so money has been wasted on less then that of the Heat and their payroll. no comments
