It’s that time of year again.  February is the month where all NCAA tournament teams trying to make the dance start working on their resumes.  Making the tournament is the focus, but the prize is the bragging rights you get being selected as one of the four #1 seeds for the tournament. Every year four teams are selected, every year one or two of them are debuted.  Another bragging right comes to the sports writers for guessing the four top seeds and getting them all right. As it gets close to selection Sunday I’m sure this list will change but for right now here’s my list of the #1 seeds of the up coming tournament.  Let us...

When talking NBA dynasties, it’s easy to call Bill Russell’s ‘50s Boston Celtics, or the Los Angeles Lakers teams led by Magic and Kareem in the ‘80s and the Shaq and Kobe team in the 2000s all dynasties.  The Bird led Boston Celtics team of the ’80s are always talked about and no one ever forgets to bring up Jordan’s bulls of the ‘90s.  Let’s take a look at the resume of a NBA team that should be considered a dynasty but is rarely in these conversations. In an eight year span the Spurs won four NBA Championships and have not missed the playoffs since drafting their first-ballot Hall of Fame leader, Tim...

As the All-star game nears, it’s time to name my NBA awards winners for the first half of the season. Every team has played more than half of its schedule so now is a good time to see how each player ranks in the award races. MVP: Kevin Durant Runner ups: LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony There is no mistaking it, LeBron James is the best basketball player on the planet, however, the MVP of the season is not an award for the best basketball player but for the most valuable to the league and his team. This year Kevin Durant is that player. Durant is currently on his way to his 4th straight scoring title and leading the...

As the All-star break nears and mid-season grades start going out, it’s time to look at the top rookies of the season so far.  Portland’s Damian Lillard is the odds-on-favorite to walk away with the Rookie of the Year trophy but let’s look at the top candidates let us know if you agree. Damian Lillard: Portland Trailblazers, Guard, Weber State, 6th overall pick Since being selected MVP of the Las Vegas Summer League, Damian Lillard has stepped in on a team use to making the playoffs as the starting point guard and has shown the leadership and pose of a veteran.   As a rookie he’s playing 40 minutes, averaging 18 points...

There was talk of an Allen Iverson come back. The Dallas Mavericks-owned Texas Legends of the NBA's D-League offered him a spot. One would think, go to the D-League, show you still have something to offer and accept your role on some NBA roster. Sounds like the opportunity an aging player looking for one last chance at a championship would jump all over. We found out this path to get back in the league is not the one Iverson wanted to take. Iverson tweeted: I thank Donnie and Dallas for the consideration and while I think the D-League is a great opportunity, it is not the route for me. — Allen Iverson (@alleniverson) January...
