Like the NCAA Tournament, some NBA player makes a name for himself during the playoffs. Stephen Curry, 1 of the best shooters we’ve ever watched and 1 who almost helped the Warriors stun the Nuggets today in Denver, could be 1 of those players. Writer Shaun Powell compiles a good list of some who might emerge. Another name we would add to it is San Antonio forward Kawhi Leonard. He isn’t spectacular at anything but good at plenty of things.

Billy Hunter is making the NBA players executive committee look like buffoons, particularly Mo Evans. Evans, once a teammate with Derek Fisher with the Lakers, has been the most vocal committee member about forcing Fisher out as president despite the union paying almost $5 million to Hunter’s family for union-related “work.” Please.
The committee went as far as dropping the name of Chris Paul, who also is a member of the committee and voted for Fisher’s ouster, as a possible successor to Fisher. Wonder where that came from?
Seriously, the stench is becoming unbearable.
Rick Fox was a guest on the “Petros & Money” show this afternoon on Fox Radio in L.A. Fox said the wackiness is just beginning. And though he didn’t elaborate, it’s a good guess more skeletons will be falling out of Hunter’s closet.

Watching David Stern politic and play on the ignorance of many NBA fans who solely blame the players for the lockout, we’re reminded of a solution the commissioner chooses to ignore. It’s called contraction. The league would be better off if they contracted teams such as Michael Jordan’s Bobcats or the NBA-run Hornets, among others. Instead, Stern and his misguided owners believe strong-arming the players for millions and hijacking the game from the fans is a better tactic.

Just shopping, not buying anything. Damn, I thought she was hotter than that Mike. Just another reason Wilt is the greatest of all time.
I’ve been with the NBA players since Day 1 but I’m not the only 1. Here’s more reasons why.

Eventually, we all knew it would come to this, NBA players caving before opening night. Or at least it sounds like there is some cracking inside the NBA Players’ Union, with the fussing and fighting intensifying. The superstars can afford to miss a few paychecks, but many of the rank-and-file members not so much. In addition, there has been talk of some players questioning the loyalty of Derek Fisher. Now, Billy Hunter is under the microscope.
The owners aren’t the picture of solidarity either, the comments by Heat owner Mickey Arison the latest example. But they’ve got money. And they’ve got the little dictator (David Stern) leading the charge.
A deal by the end of the week? We think so. The worst being next week, no?
If not, we’ve got college hoops tipping off. That will stop a little bleeding for us hoop junkies.

“Go fuck yourself.”
This is going nowhere. Maybe saner heads like Mark Cuban will prevail? Didn’t think so.

While Tyreke Evans celebrates capturing the Rookie of the Year honor, Milwaukee’s Brandon Jennings has a bigger prize in mind. Jennings, who finished 3rd in the rookie voting behind Evans and Stephen Curry, is on the verge of leading the surprsing Bucks, who no one gave a chance of beating the Hawks, to a second-round berth in the NBA playoffs.
Jennings finished with 25 points last night in Atlanta and keyed a 14-0 run late in the game to stun the Hawks. The Bucks, who lead the series 3-2, can eliminate Atlanta with a win in Game 6 on Friday in Milwaukee.
That also would mean Atlanta Coach Mike Woodson is toast.
