WELCOME TO THE PARTY GREG!:
Now that the dancing is done, is Greg Oden ready for the draft?
After claiming ignorance in egard to his draft status since he after the NCAA National Championship, Greg Oden is going to the NBA. While some though he might test his morals and return to Columbus, Oden is opting for the sure thing and entering the draft. With Red Sox season is in full swing, Boston fans can start getting wet about the possibility of Oden resurrecting a Boston CELTICS franchise that seems to have lost it's way. Hope he can handle the pressure, luckily for him girls from Boston aren't good dancers either.
NBA PLAYOFFS '07:
SUNS burn LAKERS, but Kobe rapes competition
SUNS LEAD 1-0
Kobe Bryant's LAKERS looked a bit sluggish against the SUNS today. It's clear that Kobe Bryant is the go-getter for the showtime-less lake show, 39 points and a double-double from Lamar Odom Couldn't keep Phil Jackson's squad in it. Jared Farmar and Smush Parker have to be the worst two options at point guard in the NBA. Bryant's career is under a microscope, but really, if he can lead his LAKERS past the ultra-offensive SUNS they NBA should have a holiday for him.
Cavs lead 1-0
For a minute, the Antwan Jamison and Jarvis Hayes really had me thinking that the Wizards could pull out an upset and set the pace for a hard fought series that they would probably loose. But midway through the third quarter they came apart. Antonio Daniels, who John Thompson couldn't give enough pats on the back, left 11 assists on the floor and quarterbacked a Wizards team that was missing their biggest guns, Arenas and Butler. Lebron James and Larry Hughes combined for 50 points and 14 rebounds while powering a young Cavs team past a depleted line-up.
