Tuesday Breakdown

To all the loyal readers, sorry for the lack of posts. We'll try to pick it back up to normal after the New Year.

A few links while I'm here:

The Jordan 2009's are coming out. Pretty sweet...

Awesome read on Chris Paul and his nastiness.

Steve Nash is the most over rated player...EVER! Bill Simmons joins me in my frustration, and states the case that Nothing has altered the NBA more than Mike D'Antoni. Unfortunately, it's because Steve Nash is the biggest joke of a back-to-back MVP and the most over rated player, EVER! (Did I mention that?)

In case you forgot, the Consecutive MVP Club looks like this: Kareem, Bird, Magic, Moses, Jordan, Russell, Duncan, Wilt … and Nash. Gulp.

That is ridiculous. Check out Nash's numbers this year compared to his last season in Dallas:

Nash, 2003-04: 78 games, 14.5 PPG, 8.8 APG, 47% FG, 41% 3FG, 92% FT.
Nash, 2008-09: 24 games, 15.5 PPG, 8.5 APG, 48% FG, 42% 3FG, 94% FT.

Speaking of Mike D'Antoni, Ken Berger breaks down Mike D's very under-rated defense.

Are you serious? D'Antoni and defense mix like Palestinians and Jews!

welcome back dmiz..

missed your readings..

now onto my question,

a, which team will be the surprise of the new year?
b. which player ?

i vote, knicks as the biggest surprise,, but not good surprise, i say they spin outta control.. how long can duhon last 40 minutes a game before he breaks down, we now see the real harrington the one nelson couldnt wait to see outta golden state,, no defense at all, and no real basketball skills, just a chucker...

as for 1 player, i can see telfair taking charge in minnesota, they gotta make some changes there real soon.

plse do chime in with your predictaions,

tks,

to all, have a happy healthy new year!!

Bill Simmons is the most over-rated blogger in the world...Just the mention of his name disgusts me and should be used sparingly...He should stick to changing diapers and watching crappy tv..

Randy Foye MVP of 2nd half
