BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Monta Ellis was awarded NBA Player of the Week Monday after averaging 24 points, 4 rebounds, 9 assists and 5 steals per game, and leading the Bucks to a 3-0 week, and it looks like the Milwaukee guard is already making a case for this week.

Larry Sanders is not going to have fun watching this during an upcoming tape session. With just over six seconds remaining in regulation, Alan Anderson dropped defender Larry Sanders with a nasty jab-step and crossover. The cross allowed Alan a clear path to the basket and an easy finish with only two seconds left on the clock, sending the game into overtime.
The Bucks eventually...
Why do deer like salt licks? It’s one of the longest pondered mysteries in the world. Ok, that’s not true at all after I asked Jeeves. According to Wikipedia (I know Mrs. Hanson, I can’t use it as a source but this isn’t a research paper, *****) “A mineral [salt] lick is natural mineral deposit where animals in nutrient-poor ecosystems can obtain essential mineral...
