Dwight Howard Has A Response For The Haters; O.J. Mayo Pulls A JaVale McGee

We had a joke all lined up. With Big Baby rumbling to 23 points and 12 rebounds, and with Dwight Howard in an injury/depressed/look at me funk, Orlando was setting themselves up. In his last three games before last night, Davis was averaging 21.3 points, 11 rebounds and 50 percent from the floor. For once, he WAS more useful than Howard. But somehow after hurting his lower back enough to be stretched out by the team’s physical therapist at midcourt before the third quarter, and with his shot not falling, Dwight didn’t give up. He did work. Read More »

The Kings Crown Themselves Against The Lakers; Dallas Gets Embarrassed Again

Lamar Odom, Dwight Howard and Chris Paul aren’t walking through that door. The Lakers are what they are right now: an 0-2 team searching for a spark. They took a beheading at the hands of the Kings last night in Sacramento, 100-91 and while everyone wants to drive the stake into them after two games, maybe we should just give some credit to the Kings. Tyreke Evans (20 points on 13 shots) was a monster again last night, and Marcus Thornton (27 points on 13 shots) was dropping bombs on ‘em Outkast-style throughout the second half. Every time L.A. threatened, one of those two made a big offensive play, or DeMarcus Cousins out-hustled everyone in yellow for the ball. Read More »

With prospects still making up their collective minds left and right, it’s been hard to get a handle on just how talented this draft class will be. While some youngsters have decided to head back to school, others are keen on testing the NBA waters now. And while we shined a more unknown spotlight on Northwestern’s John Shurna, the group also added a likely Lottery pick to the mix yesterday. Thursday afternoon in Boulder, Colo., Buffs’ sophomore Alec Burks officially declared for the Draft and says he will sign with an agent. Read More »

Upset Alert: Kansas at Colorado Tonight

Sherron Collins & Cole Aldrich

Upon reading this headline, the majority of you might think that I’m crazy (and after tonight, that very well may hold some weight). Truth be told, this is either going to be a David triumphs Goliath or a blowout. However, in looking at the collegiate schedule tonight, the matchup of Kansas at Colorado is an intriguing one (9 p.m. EST) – and it will all depend on how the Buffs respond to the first 12 minutes. Both Pitt/West Virginia and Mississippi State/Vanderbilt will also be great to watch, but don’t sleep on the run in Boulder this evening. Read More »
