Kobe Bryant tops Sporting News’ list of the 50 greatest players in the NBA today, as selected by a panel of 107 Hall of Famers, major award winners, executives, current players and coaches and other basketball experts.
Bryant beat out LeBron James for the No. 1 spot and received 62 first-place votes. James received 34 first-place votes, and Dwyane Wade, who was third on the list, received 11 first-place votes. Dwight Howard was fourth, and Tim Duncan fifth. Among the NBA legends who filled out ballots for SN were 28 Hall of Famers: Rick Barry, Elgin Baylor, Walt Bellamy, Bill Bradley, Bob Cousy, Dave Cowens, Joe Dumars, Harry Gallatin, Cliff Hagan, Tom Heinsohn, Bob Houbregs, Bailey Howell, Bob Kurland, Earl Lloyd, Bob McAdoo, Dick McGuire, Earl Monroe, Bob Pettit, Jack Ramsay, Frank Ramsey, Arnie Risen, Oscar Robertson, Bill Sharman, Jack Twyman, Dick Vitale, Bobby Wanzer, Jerry West, Lenny Wilkens.
“I think what we’ve seen from Kobe in the last two, three years is that he has become an incredible leader,” Magic Johnson said about Bryant. “That was the only thing he had to do that was left on his resume. Before, there was no question that he was the best basketball player in the world, like he is now. He was dominant every night, but he didn’t take on that leadership role. ... Now, he is the total package.”

"I used to drink Hennessy … at halftime," Artest says in the interview. "I (kept it) in my locker. I'd just walk to the liquor store (near the stadium) and get it."
Five years later, Artest still is interested in fighting Ben Wallace.
"I see Ben, I'm on my guard now. I'm always in the mood to fight him. … I'll get suspended 10 games, 15 games (because) I'll just fight him right there. It won't go into the stands."
Artest also plans on becoming a professional boxer when his NBA career is over.
"I started training two years ago," he says. "In four years, I'm going to try to have my first fight."

"In light of the recent injury to Lou Williams, which will sideline him for close to eight weeks, we felt that Allen was the best available free agent guard to help us at this time," Stefanski said in a release.

So I'm watching college football this sat, and I notice that Nike is debuting there Nike Pro Combat Football Jerseys. These strange uniform appearances are the result of Nike's System of Dress program, which they say is supposed to revolutionizing the way football is dressed. Let me be the first to say that these are some of the ugliest looking jerseys that I have ever seen in my life. What really gets me is that they got lazy with the design by just having a universal template and just changing the colorway. Then they didnt even get all the colorways correct. LSU had on gold helmets even though they have never had gold in there school colors. Florida Gators had on blue jerseys with white looking all crazy.
Nike didn't even give a fuck about football until Under Armor started kicking there ass and making there pockets lighter. Nike wasn't even thinking about making products that go under your jersey cus you cant see them, and there all about viability. Football players are the most non-visible athletes, so you can see why Nike was letting the back up team handle there designs and marketing.
At the end of the day College Football is more about Money than competition and school tradition, so it is a win/win for historic programs who are always happy to take extra bags of cash and for Nike who can erase the individual school’s identities and make them into distinctive symbols of the Nike brand.

Shouts to the homie Shamgod. I remember being up at Minisink waiting on line to get crossed over by this dude just to say it happened to me and shit. I think he's over in China now which is good news because there are a lot of dudes on the summer circuit with no jobs frontin. Enjoy the reminisce
"Heyyy, Heehhyyyyy, Hehhyyyyy"
Yall probably forgot about this one but Jayson Williams has cut a plea deal that would send him to prison for up to three years for accidentally shooting a driver at his New Jersey estate in 2002, a person with knowledge of the case told The Associated Press on Thursday.
Williams, who retired in 2000 after playing nine seasons in the NBA for the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Nets, was to face a retrial in January on a reckless manslaughter count.
Get your affairs in order playa.
After the Hornets fired Byron Scott last week, rumors have circulated that Dunleavy could be the next coach to get canned.
"When's the last time you ever saw an interim coach come in and the team be successful and make a playoff run?" Dunleavy said. "It's not happening. Nobody knows these guys better than I know them.
"Give a coach a chance to coach Eric Gordon and Blake Griffin. After that, fine. Let the chips fall where they may. Other than that, you just fall to pressure."
Dunleavy was referring to the fact that both Griffin and Gordon, the team's last two Lottery picks, are out with injuries.
"I understand fans," he said. "I don't blame fans. They're not technically a lot of times savvy. They don't understand and they don't weigh issues the way that you weigh them. They know wins and losses.
"We've had an awful run with this, but my track record is that I have not lost with my players. I have lost without my players, but I haven't lost with my players. From an ownership standpoint, I know there's always a lot of pressure. I'll live with whatever decision our owner makes. I'll live by it."
The Clippers are 4-9 this season.
"“It was very nice, I totally understand that. But I’m a guy that says there is no one great player in the NBA. The NBA lasts a lot longer than one particular person so I understand what his point is. Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Bill Russell all those guys should have their jerseys retired too. I understand his gesture, but I’m in the same group as those guys so I wouldn’t want to see my jersey retired unless you retire those guys."
SIDE NOTE: What Up Juanita!
I don't think I have to say too much about this but let's all agree to forget about the last year the boy AI had and appreciate the 10+ years of "Greatest 50" basketball. Ok so maybe he wasn't in the orginal fifty but we can also all agree that the 50G's list needs to be dusted off and edited to amplify.
Iverson, has had more influence on pop culture than any player in the history of the NBA, period. More than Jordan (yeah i said it!)Kobe, Lebron, Magic, Bird whomever. He repped for the people, you fealt like if you saw AI on the block, and you probably would, you could step to him, give em a pound and talk about b$%9es or somethin. Yo AI is the only reason I had braids and probably the reason I started getting tatted up, well that and my boy Guyton had the hook up out in Lefrak (What up Guyton!)
I've never had the pleasure to see AI play live but I'm hoping and praying (and I know a certain gumsoul blogger is probably doing more than that!) that the Big homie Donnie can get off that cheap shit and bring AI to MSG.Listen Donnie we Fuc'd up the Brandon Jennings movement now here's a chance to redeem yourself in a major way! Iverson represents all that is NYC basketball and no other city will embrace him the way we would. Yo Iverson would bring jerseys back b. AI is so good that even if he did come to NY the Knicks would still be ass but everyone would want to tune into a game just to see an icon playing in the most iconic of arenas, MSG.
Now if we can only get him on waivers from Reebok...
Stay Tuned NYC, stay tuned.

For those of you that missed Brandon Jennings' record-setting show last week, NBA TV has a lunchtime treat for you. Jennings' 55-point scoring explosion in a win over Golden State can be seen again at 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
Jennings' double-nickel performance marked the most points by an NBA rookie since Earl Monroe scored 56 on Feb. 13, 1968. He also set the Bucks' rookie scoring record, eclipsing the 51 points set by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (then Lew Alcindor) during the 1969-'70 season.
He was two points shy of tying Michael Redd's single-game franchise record of 57 points. He became only the third Bucks player to score 50 points in a game, joining Abdul-Jabbar and Redd.

This Dunk is spectacular for a couple reasons. They play started with Lebron getting send back on his dunk attempt by Jermaine O'neal. Then Wade came right back on the next play to show Bron how its supposed to be done. Side Show seen Wade coming the whole time, and still got destroyed. He got Adrian Peterson'd out there. Peep how hard Side Show falls into the base of the basket. Even though this dunk happened early in the season, it will be hard to top this for dunk of the year.

Check out how High Shannon gets for the tip dunk. Somebody please tell me why this kid is not starting. Derrick Fisher is over, well at least until the playoffs. D.Fish is pulling his best Robert Horry impression. Toward the end of his career Horry use to always kick his feet up till playoff time rolled around. Then he started playing foreal.

I got the chance to watch Brandon play against the Pistons the other day and I was very surprised by his performance. I knew he was gonna be real good as some point but I did not know it was gonna be this quick. He was getting bizzy out there in the Bradley Center. I don't think I ever heard a Milwaukee crowd get that loud and hype. I believe he had like 14 straight points in the 4th quarter. Jumpers, three pointers, lil Tony Parker floaters with the left, and he was playing D. Brandon is averaging 22 points, 4 bounds and 5 dimes a game, and with those numbers its safe to say that he may be playing in Jerry Jones and the Cowboys new arena at All-star break in not only in the rookie game but in the All-star game as well. If you don't know now you know!

MEXICO CITY – The man with the tri-colored mohawk took a swig of beer, stuck his fingers down his throat and vomited the mixture back into his cup. In the next seat another man, who was wearing a T-shirt with a cartoon drawing of the decapitated heads of Barack Obama and Landon Donovan, poured out what remained of the Corona beer he had been chugging and urinated into his cardboard drinks container.
Then, according to a neutral bystander who witnessed these disgusting acts, the pair stood on their seats, high-fived and hurled their vile concoctions in the direction of Donovan, the United States men’s national team star who was preparing to take a corner kick 15 yards away.
Welcome to the Estadio Azteca, where allegedly projecting bodily fluids at another human being is acceptable in the name of soccer fanaticism.
(AMERICAN SOCCER FANS BETTER SHOW AND PROVE IN 2013 WHEN MEXICO COMES TO THE US FOR A QUALIFYING GAME. yA'LL SHOULD HAVE YOUR SHIT FILLED CORONA BOTTLES ON DECK!)

Another thing that jumped out at me was how Pippen was dunking all over ni$$as in that game. Also I want to be the first to say that David Robinson has got to hold the record for getting dunked on the most in Allstar Game History. Barkley banged on him crazy toward the end of the game. I almost forgot how much handles and creativity Barkley had with the rock. Chuck cut a few dudes up and was also working well going back and forth with Jordan.
One of the bird watching highlights of the game was getting to see Cookie, Magic's wife, in the crowd. She might have been the first athlete's wife that I can remember. Also big shoutout to Tim Hardaway for letting Magic take his starting spot that year. Vince did the same thing 8 years later for Jordan's last allstar game in New York.
** Peep Wesley Snipes and his White Chick 21 seconds in on this video. What does this dude have on? (92 allstar game on nbc, 4th quarter, Magic getting busy) **

I guarantee that next year the Cavs will have the best pre game skits and antics. Remember the verbal battle that Shaq and Lebron had this season trying to top each other with pre game performances?
(The Cavs and Phoenix Suns have reached an agreement in principle on the deal, which gives the Cavaliers two of the league's biggest superstars.
O'Neal will join Cleveland in exchange for center Ben Wallace, guard Sasha Pavlovic, a second-round draft pick (No. 46 overall in Thursday's draft) and cash, said the two people who spoke on condition of anonymity because the league still must approve the deal.) courtesy of nba.com

June 19 (Bloomberg) -- On paper, it doesn’t look like much of a match-up. A 6-foot, 2-inch, 180-pound, 47-year-old amateur against a 6-foot, 8-inch, 250-pound, 24-year-old pro who won the National Basketball Association’s Most-Valuable Player award this year. Except the amateur will have home-court advantage: the South Lawn of the White House.
In an interview with Bloomberg News this week, President Barack Obama said he would soon invoke executive privilege to summon the Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James and possibly other NBA stars to the White House to shoot some hoops. “As soon as we get the basketball nets up we’re going to have some of these guys over for a game,” Obama said. Asked if he’d be playing, Obama bristled: “Of course. It’s my court.” (source: Bloomberg LP)
To his credit President Obama is also calling on NBA stars as well as other celebrities to bring national attention to fatherhood and to open the door to discussing the state of the country and certain segments of the population with respect to fatherless children in the US.
Are you really hating on this mannn????!?! Can you imagine Dubya postin someone up? Reagan? hellll no ... I just hope the right wing media doesn't ride him for talking sports while the world implodes.
Sidenote: Anybody catch the hand speed when Obama caught the fly during the interview the other night on some Mr. Miyagi sht? Obama San ..Skills. -Sox

Alston grew up in Jamaica, Queens as a street basketball legend and has received most of his recognition for that aspect of his career. In high school at Cardozo he played in only 10 Games his last two years but managed to score 319 points. He first came into the public spotlight for his starring in the And1 Mixtape Volume 1. In this mixtape, it had him performing his legendary dribbling moves on future NBA star Stephon Marbury. Prior to playing for Fresno State, Alston was regarded by many as the greatest streetball player ever. Alston was drafted after his junior year by the Milwaukee Bucks in the second round, 39th pick overall, of the 1998 NBA Draft.
His nickname, Skip To My Lou, stemmed from his tendency to skip while dribbling the ball upcourt. He played in several prominent streetball tournaments including the Entertainer's Basketball Classic, the North American Street Basketball Tour, the AND1 Mixtape Tour, and the ESPN TV show, Street Ball. It is said that, during a streetball tournament at the legendary Rucker Park in Harlem, Alston once performed what most would regard as an impossible move: during a fastbreak, he supposedly glided in the paint for a layup attempt but made a change of plans in the air as he rolled the ball down his right arm, across his shoulder and down his left arm to a trailing player for a finishing dunk. Alston currently serves as the spokesperson for the Houston Rockets Blacktop Battle -- an annual 3-on-3 streetball tournament held in Houston.
Despite his cult-following from the streetball circuit, Alston decided to make the transition to the professional game. After sitting on the bench for most of the time on a talented Milwaukee Bucks squad, he emerged as a starter for the Miami Heat in 2004. He did not disappoint, averaging 12 points and 4 assists while catapulting a young Miami team to the playoffs. During that season, on a March 26th game against the Dallas Mavericks, he hit a game winning shot in overtime with 0.5 seconds left over the outstretched arms of Shawn Bradley to catapult Miami to a 119-118 victory. He signed with the Toronto Raptors during the summer of 2004.
Following a recent tumultuous tenure with the Toronto Raptors, Alston was traded to the Houston Rockets for guard Mike James on October 4, 2005. Although Alston frequently was criticized for his attitude while in Toronto, it is believed that Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy conferred with his brother, Miami Heat coach Stan Van Gundy, who coached Alston during the 2003-2004 NBA season, about Alston's work ethic and attitude. Jeff Van Gundy's reputation for toughness and his ability to get the most out of players previously considered "trouble-makers" or "temperamental" (e.g., Latrell Sprewell) has led to optimism on the part of the Rockets' staff. In 2006-07, as the team's starting point guard, Alston thrived in most things but shooting, averaging 13.3 points, 3.4 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.6 steals. He ranked in the top ten in the NBA in steals and three-pointers made, and is in the top 20 in assists. In '09 Alston was traded to the Orlando Magic to replace the injured pg Jameer Nelson. While In Orlando Alston helped lead the Magic to the '09 Nba Finals
Alston was arrested in 1998 for violation of parole. Alston had pled no contest in 1997 to assaulting his former girlfriend and was required to complete a one-year anger-management course as part of his probation. Alston failed to complete the course and an arrest warrant was issued. Alston was released and completed his sentence.

The Key to Orlando's Victory is simple. Feed The Beast. LA big men don't have the foot speed or the muscle to even put a dent in Dwight's armor. Bynum new name should be Puppy Chow, cus Dwight gonna eat that lil boy up. Kibbles and Bits. If he couldn't deal with Yao what you think gonna happen with the Dwightmare? C.Lee and Pietrus have there hands full with Kobe, but so does anybody who matches up with him. Also Skip gonna get busy on Old ass D.Fish. I hate D.fish by the way.
Kobe Show Preview
Kobe's gonna do his thing, Gasol is gonna do his thing (on the offensive side), and Lamar will also, hopefully, do his thing. I think the key to LA victory will be how the other collection of bums play. As much as I talk shit about Ariza, I think he will make the biggest difference in LA play last year vs this year. (Not Bum Ass Bynum) LA now has a role player that's a good perimeter defender, that can knock down the 3 (he's shooting near 50% from behind the arc) and dunk on people. Only problem is that the magic have that same type of player in C.Lee and Pietrus. A ni$$a name Sasha gonna have to be on his scrappy shit and beat them in being a irritating asshole, cus he aint gonna beat Lee or Pietrus on talent. Plus The Janitor might come with the Ong Bok elbows and Lay his ass out like he did Mo Will.

After leading Minneapolis North HS to three straight state titles and being named a McDonald's All-American, the three-time Minnesota State Player of the Year was named Big East Conference Rookie of the Year while being second in the team in scoring (16.0) and setting the UConn single-season scoring record for a freshman. He is widely considered to be the most influential piece in their late 90's college basketball dominance. Head Coach Jim Calhoun frequently referred to him as a "more talented Richard Hamilton".
El-Amin, with his sawed-off, chunky frame, would later earn a reputation as a winner at UConn. As a sophomore, El-Amin will forever be remembered by University of Connecticut fans for being the starting point guard on their team that won the 1999 NCAA Championship game thriller over Duke. In the final game he scored the Huskies' final 4 points in their riveting 77-74 victory.
In 2000, playing on a team not quite as good as the previous year, El-Amin led the Huskies in scoring (16.0), assists (4.4) and steals (1.7) and was named to the All-Big East first team. He was also one of 15 finalists for the Naismith Award and set a Big East record by making 93.4 percent of his FTs in league games. He took the Huskies as far as he could before a severe ankle sprain left him at less than half speed in a season-ending NCAA tournament loss to Tennessee.
He left UConn as fourth all-time at the school in FT percentage at 82.2, sixth all-time at in assists and fifth in steals. His averages per game in his final season are 31.9 minutes, 16.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 2.7 turnovers, 1.7 steals, makes 2.9 of 5.5 field goals (41.1%) and 4.1 of 4.6 free throws (89.2%). He finished his college career with averages of 30.1 minutes, 15.3 points on 41.6% shooting and 82.2% free throws, 3.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 2.7 turnovers and 1.7 steals.
El-Amin also helped the U.S. to a gold medal performance in the '98 Goodwill Games in New York City.
 NBA career
El-Amin earned a second round 34th overall selection by the Chicago Bulls in the 2000 NBA Draft. That year, he played in the Schick Rookie Challenge at All-Star weekend in Washington, DC and scored 18 points. He also played in the NBA briefly with the Miami Heat in 2002.
In 50 games in the NBA, El-Amin averaged 6.3 points with 2.9 assists, 1.6 rebounds, 1.0 steals, 1.1 turnovers and 2.0 fouls in 18.6 minutes.
 European career
El-Amin signed with Strasbourg (France) in January 2002. He then joined Maccabi Ironi Ramat Gan (Israel) in November 2002.
He joined Besiktas Istanbul of the Turkish league in August 2003. Dominating the league for two seasons, El-Amin was second in scoring (20.9) and third in assists (5.2) in his first season. In 2005, he led the league in assists and averaged 20.4 points a game. He was named MVP of the Turkish League All-Star Game in 2005 and was a member of the World Team at the 2005 FIBA Europe All-Star Game.
In June 2005, he started his first season with Azovmash Mariupol of the Ukraine Superleague. Azovmash won the 2006 Ukrainian Championship, and El-Amin was named the MVP of both the regular season and playoffs.
In August 2007, he started his first season with Türk Telekom B.K. of the Turkish basketball league.
 Player profile
El-Amin is described as a flashy point guard but not a physically gifted one. According to scouting reports, he is an exceptional ballhandler but is a big defensive liability. A lack of height hurts his game on top of a lack of a consistent jumpshot.

I want to see the Kobe verse Lebron match up in the Finals just as much as the Nike and Vitamin Water Execs do, but I want to see them earn there way to the finals. Not get there based on some bullshit calls. This years Refs have been the most inconsistent group ever. Them motherfuckers is getting Technical foul happy, which in turn is taking the emotion out of the game. When you Dunk on somebody you are suppossed to be able to look them dead in their face and scream out "In Your Face!"
But back to the Conspiracy Theory. Think about how much money wont be made if the Lakers and Cavs dont meet up in the Finals. Think about how much money Nike will lose when they cant debut there new Corney Ass Kobe and Lebron Puppet Commercials in the Finals. Who in the hell wants to wait in line for 2 weeks outside House of Hoops just to get a pair of the new Leborn Sneaker, Finals edition, if his ass aint in the Finals?
If I was Melo or Dwight I would get extra pissed ever time I saw them bullshit Nike Crank Yanker puppets commercials. And if Melo does take the Nuggest to the finals, he better get his own fucking Nike Puppet.

And now on the day after he should have brought his backup @ss to the white house to meet the President, one of his 3 pit bulls has attacked 2 people including an adult and another player's young son and he may face charges

Next time get a leash and get your black @ss on the plane to meet the President. Now to be fair he skipped on Bush also ... but he doesn't get the Obama pass from me.

I don't wanna hear shit about Orlando stealing last nights game from the Cleveland Caveliers. While the Cavs supporting cast was watching the Lebron James show, Rashard Lewis was puttin them to sleep on the low, in my opinion FINALLY earning that 9 figure contract Orlando blessed him with. Those who know me know I don't give RL a inch but if he plays the way he did last night, Cleveland is a wrap. I don't think that Ni**a missed one shot in the 4th quarter. Put it like this, if they hold Lebron to just 40 of the 49 points they would have won decisively.
Cleveland needed the gut check but I have no clue why everyone is predicting a blow out in the next game. Orlando aint Atlanta and they definitely aint the Detroit Pistons.
Cleveland has been playing great team ball but sometimes the playoffs come down to indviduals and I'm not sure if Cleveland has those dudes (varjao, zerbiak, joe smith and some other bums) to take them there when goin get's tough.
Don't let Orlando "steal" game two.

Shout-outs to the boy Melo who was extra determined to put his name in as one of the best players in the Leauge. Melo has completely turned around his game since the summer and was playing like he had something to prove last night. Kobe Bryant, (and Coach K) are the main reason why Wade, Melo and Lebron played at different levels this NBA season. Would Lebron have even gotten this years MVP if he didnt get the chance to see Kobe's daily preparation and defensive intensity up close?
On a side note did anybody besides me get to see how Kobe tapped his wife's bad ass, big breasted, Thoroughbred legged, light skin friend on the ass when he was running to the locker room be4 half time? That bitch was extra bad.
Anyway, the Lakers snuck outta that one for sure but that's the edge of experience that could ultimately lead to Denver's downfall. That and Kenyon Martin trying to put the ball on the floor and shoot that line drive jimmy.

Yo and when the refs are wrong they never apologize like anyone else. No public press conference or nothing like that. Shit be like some twitter announcement on the bottom ticker during Sportscenter or some shit.
Not for nothing Denver would have buss the Mavs ass anyway but you gotta wonder what could have been in the ref blew the whistle (for the 62nd time) on Antoine Wright when Melo went up for the game winning 3pt.

Former NBA player Corie Blount was arrested for felony drug possession. The former Chicago Bull was taken into custody after authorities saw him receive a package that contained marijuana. A subsequent search at his home found that Blount had 29 pounds worth of blunts.
According to Butler County officials, police saw Blount pick up a package from the US Postal Service that contained 11 pounds of marijuana. Law officials then followed him to his home where they served him with a search warrant.
At Blount's home, officers found two more large packages of marijuana. All told, Blount was in possession of 29 pounds of weed.
In addition to confiscating the marijuana, police also took away three guns, nearly $30,000 in cash, and three cars including a Mercedes Benz and a Cadillac Escalade. (nowpublic.com)
Maybe Dwight should impersonate a dominate player in the NBA and demand the fucking basket ball from his teammates. Or he could impersonate a ni$$a with right good sense, and not run up in cheerleaders with no bag on. The Boston Celtics are missing there best front court players, and Dwight only has 3 touches in the forth quarter. Not 3 shots, but three touches. Dwight needs to realize that all that joking around and dancing around and letting lil ni$$as jump over you does not contribute to you being a dominate player in the leauge. It makes you look like a big ass clown thats afraid to be the leader of your team. By the way, Stan Van Gundy gonna be on the unemployment line next year.

Note to all rich white people.... you can not disrespect, point violently at, and then curse at a black mans mother on national television. I dont care how rich and powerful you think you are, or how many dairy queens you own. Mark Cuban is lucky Kenyon didn't go PJ Carlesimo on his ass. Look how shook Mark looks while hes high 5ing white people in the crowd. How you in The Arena that you own, and you scared to walk off your court? I'll tell you how. Curse out at a black mans mother on national television.

2. NUGGETS (7-1): Billups got these boys playing on a whole other level from last year. I dont think I have ever seen Carmelo focus this hard on the defensive end. Plus the one game they lost was by one point and one missed shot by Melo. They were that close to being undefeated, unlike L.A. who already got 3 loses as well as a ass-busington in there last game. Even J.R. Smith is playing defense.
3. CELTICS (6-5 ): The Celtics, who already had a weak bench to Begin with, are missing Kevin Garnett, and Leon Powe and have still not missed a beat. How many teams could lose there best front court players and still advance in the playoffs? Better yet how many teams with the human infection Stephon have ever advanced passed the first round in the playoffs? Big Baby is playing his ass off and is my choice for the most improved player of the year. Even Bum ass Scalabrine is stepping up. Doc Rivers is getting the very best out of his team from the stars to the bums.
5.) MAGIC (6-4): If the Magic would get there act together and get the damn ball to Dwight more they would probably be further up on the list. How does a MVP candidate play a whole game and get 12 shot attempts? Fucking Turkoglu shooting crazy threes at the end of the game wilding out. Skip to My Lou slapping people in the back of the head. And how is the Janitor Anthony Johnson playing better than half the team?
5.) Rockets (6-4): Even though the Rockets were able to rally thanks to Arron Brooks booging on D.fish, and to Shane's passionate speech before game 4, there fate is sealed. Ron Artest is there only low post threat, and all he wants to do is shoot threes all day. Even thought the Rockets are use to playing with injuries they always had one of there big two, Mcgrady or Yao. This team is very scrappy, and they play tuff, but if they meet up with the Nuggets Chauncy and them busting that ass.
