5 Things to Rant About

1) I would sign Darius Miles

Why not? You sign him to a 10-day contract and play him in garbage time and all of a sudden the Portland Trailblazers don’t have cap space this summer. Is this a jerk move? Yes, but the NBA is a cutthroat competition so why wouldn’t you cut your competitions throat when you have the chance? Good on Memphis.

2) With oil prices down the Diesel is back

Many panned the Shaq for Marion trade, but this year Shaq has shown that he still has some life in his legs. Shaq is averaging 18.2 points 9.1 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per games. He has produced 18 double-doubles and posted highs of 35 points and 17 rebounds. With Miami now scouring the NBA for big men – with Marion as the bait – I’m sure they’d like to go back in time and reverse their trade with Phoenix.

3) Nate Robinson should not be in the dunk competition

It is amazing that a 5’9” point guard can rock the rim, but Nate Robinson is shock value, not entertainment. In his last dunk competition, he took close to 30 attempts to finally put down a dunk and it was boring, just plain boring. I like how the NBA allowed fans to vote in the final dunker, even though my pick Joe Alexander lost. Joe Alexander can hit his nose on the rim, yet he will be watching at home while Robinson struggles to complete a dunk.

4) I’m tired of the Celtics

If I see the video of KG signing the superman song one more time I’m going to go crazy. It isn’t funny. I’m tired of hearing KG talk so ‘selflessly’ about Paul Pierce. The Big Three are franchise players who have all bought into the team-first mentality, I feel ya dawg. I like KG, but I’m tired of this story. It probably won’t go away, but as KG knows annnnnyttthing is possibbbbble.

5) Second Round Picks

Seems almost every year one team steals a gem in the second round. In the past it has been undersized power forwards like Paul Millsap, Carlos Boozer and Leon Powe, but this year its Milwaukee’s swing player Luc Richard Mbah A Moute. The 6’8” 230 pound product of UCLA has impressed coach Scott Skiles with his ability to defend four different positions and has passed the Bucks 1st round pick, Joe Alexander, on their depth chart. The 37th player drafted in last year’s entry draft is averaging 7.6 points 6.2 rebounds and 1 steal per game and has started 29 times for Bucks. While the numbers do not jump out at you, Mbah A Moute is the type of player all good teams need - he is a glue guy who does all the little things to help the team win. Mbah A Moute’s success this season shows that even though the television coverage cuts out after the 30th pick is made, the second round is still relevant.
