wish listWith Black Friday looming right around the corner I figured now would be as good as time as any to set-up a Christmas wish list for a few NBA Teams that are under-performing.

Clippers - Despite adding Blake Griffin 14 games into the season the Clippers have yet to mesh.  They are scoring 10 points less then their opponents.  The 3 point shooting is terrible, free throws a step above terrible they may as well let Shaq take their shots.  RECOMMENDATION - 1) Keep Tony Parker away from your wife 2) XBOX with NBA 2K11 3) Hair clipper and 4) a Jordan Jammer Nerf hoop.

Jimmie JohnsonNot many people want him to win. Not many at all. Jimmie Johnson could care less. He's chasing his 5th consecutive NASCAR Sprint Cup title. He's trying to become only the third person to win more than four titles, joining the greats Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt. And at 35, he still has several years to go in the sport. A lot of people don't like that. We all know the other drivers don't. "No offense to him, but somebody else needs to win," says Kevin Harvick, one of the three drivers who still has a chance of winning the chase. no comments

pom pomsThis NFL season has been one unbelievable thing after another. Teams winning that shouldn’t. Teams not winning that should. Parity “apparently” across the divisions. Drama on some teams to rival reality TV. It’s just not been a season of what one would expect. But this weekend comes the rivalry game that is THE game each year, or it was. In years past, it was the game people could count on to bring the rivalry back to the NFL. This year, don’t count on it. no comments

basketballIs Greg Oden a bust? As far as his play goes, I would say no, but over the last four seasons that play has only showed up in 82 games. That averages to about one fourth of games per season. Considering Derek Fisher played all 82 for the Lakers last year it is ridiculous that Greg Oden can not be on the court for more than 2 games. no comments

A few years ago Greg Oden did an ESPN Commercial that I found absolutely hilarious. It was a simple commercial with him trying to market himself as a big man, but the comedy was in his face. He had this goofy look on his face and it didn’t change no matter what product he was trying to market. Good stuff. The other memorable thing about Oden is the fact that he looks like a tall Grady off of Sanford and Son. He honestly looks like he is about 40 years old and has had a hard life, but the kid is only 22 years old. I remember joking that he was drinking 40’s at 8 years old because no one would check his ID. Sadly, this is the only thing memorable about Oden’s career so far. It what should be the start of his 4th season in the NBA, Oden has only played in a total of 82 games and is out for the rest of the season again because he is in need of more surgery on his left knee. no comments

It is a surprise to me that the Women’s UConn Basketball Team 80th straight wins last night didn’t get as much press as it deserves. That’s 80 straight Ws. That’s unheard of in today’s world. If you look at the record of consecutive wins for men’s college basketball it was set back in 1974 by the UCLA Men’s Basketball team.  Looking at professional sports, the longest win streak in the NBA was 33 games set by the LA Lakers in 1972. The record of 26 straight wins in the MLB was set by the New York Giants back in 1916. The New England Patriots won 21 straight games before losing in 2004, and the Oklahoma Sooners won 47 games before losing in 1957. The Women’s UConn Team set a Women’s NCAA record and it’s not front page news. They have a chance to not only match but pass the Men’s NCAA record of 88 games, but I still wonder how much noise is going to be made about that achievement. Is it me or do women’s achievements in sports seem get swept under the rug? no comments

Blake GriffinThe NBA season so far hasn't been too far off from where I thought it would be prior to the season beginning, the Heat are having expected flashes of greatness and then the same expected displeasure in watching the Heat's point guard situation and lack of communication on defense with the ridiculous time to time of teammates standing and watching the big 3.  No team has really jumped out to me with exception to maybe Chicago.  Chicago has D.Rose and Deng, there is Noah playing defense as expected with the arrival of Thibodeau they will be even better with the arrival of Boozer and New Jersey is playing up under direction of the General and looking good, hey it is New Jersey. no comments

BraxtonI just want to tell all of you that Braxton Miller, Senior QB for the Huber Heights Wayne Warriors, is the best player I have seen play high school football since I moved to the great football area of southwest Ohio 6 years ago.  There are many great schools in the area.  If you have the chance look up Moeller, St. X, Northmont, Elder, and Wayne because I have seen all of those teams play live in the past three years and some of them three times.

NorthwesternThe definition of insanity, as many of you may know, is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.  If that is the definition of insanity then I have no choice but to conclude that Kirk Ferentz, head coach of the Iowa Hawkeyes, is insane.  I have stood by coach Ferentz for many years and I have put up with his conservative offensive play.  Ken O'Keefe is the offensive coordinator and his play calling has also been questionable the last two weeks.

Last night, I watched the collapse of the Heat on NBA TV. What started out as a laugher, turned into an embarrassing loss and what should be an eye-opener for Miami. Right now they are not clicking on all cylinders and are still trying to find answers on how to be successful on both sides of the floor.  The 3 superstars on that team need to put their heads together and get it going soon, or the moves they made over the off-season will end up playing out like a Hollywood horror movie.  Is it panic time yet? No. But, this isn’t the beginning that they thought they would have either. Right now they are 3rd in their division behind the Hawks and the Magic. They have the 6 – 2 Celtics again on Friday. If they lose that one, they’ll be 5-4 and will have lost twice to one of, if not, the best team in the Eastern Conference. no comments
