Jared, a senior forward at Northland High, scored 32pts, including two free throws w/ :04 left, to lead the Vikings to a 53-52 win that ended then national No. 1 Findlay Prep’s 45 game winning streak. He also had 17 rebounds and two blocks.
At week’s end Jared was averaging 21.6 & 14 rebounds.
As a junior, he was Ohio’s Mr. Basketball
LA Lakers: Ron-Ron Attest brings his show to LA. Huge Addition! Wherever he landed would have tilted the balance of Power (think Cleveland).
Washington Wizards: Got Randy Foye/Mike Miller for pick + healthy Gilbert Arenas = Playoffs.
Cleveland Cavs: SHAGa poco comes to the Kingdom of James.
Sixers: Jrue Holiday from UCLA at 17 pick was a steal.
Pacers: for drafting Ya Boy, Tyler Hansbough
The Denver Nuggets reach the Western Conference Finals for the first time since 1985 as they finished off the Dallas Mavericks 124-110 to close out the series 4-1 in front of their fans. Nuggets jumped out to a 34-27 lead in the first quarter. They kept Dallas staggered on the offensive end of the floor by scoring 69 points in the first half. Dallas rode an emotional high into tonight’s game and knew it would be tough but was unable to handle the various offensive threats from Denver.
Pretty cool. We could have used one of these over at Little Shawns.

The enormous flat-screen TV on the wall of Joe Borgia’s office is showing a moment of the 2005 Christmas day game. The Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade catches the ball on the right wing, eyes up his defender, the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant, and plows into the lane.
We’re on a high floor on Fifth Avenue, at the NBA’s headquarters, where Borgia is the Vice President of Referee Operations. After controversy involving a travel call on LeBron James and his crab dribble, the ensuing commentary made clear that while basketball fans and journalists may be upset about how NBA referees do or don’t call travels, very few of us really understand the NBA’s actual traveling rule.

Hooped last night in West Hollywood.
I was on my Bruce Bowen steez when we got behind. The other team kept complaining
I kept thinking of the Hackers Commandments and laughing to myself
We aren’t 100% guilty of all the Commandments, but we have most covered
Made a run at the end, but still took the L
We kind of like the Bad News Bears in the begining of the movie
Who will prevail?? LA or Boston.
This rivalry is not Yanks vs. Socks, Ali vs. Frazier, and Affirmed vs. Aladyar (for the horse racing fans). Heck the NFL has these blood baths every week, CowBoy’s vs. Giants or Redskins, Steelers vs. Browns, but as far as the NBA is concerned, this is NIRVANA (translation: Kurt Colbain).
More Fun After The Bump
With the NBA down to the Final Four, matchups will be the key to who advances to the Championship.
There are no weak sisters’ here.
