Rants:Andrew Bynum- I know it been a tough year for the seven year center, but it has been a wasted year for the Philadelphia 76ers. They built this season around the talented big man in his walk year, you would think they would get something out of him. Instead zero, zip, hurt all year and hasn’t played a minute of NBA action, but his bowling game is fine. If your knees hurt that bad and you know you are looking for a big score why would risk everything and do something that would put undo strain on your body like that? Bad decision making all the way around. Have to think that Lakers are glad they made the deal despite their issues with Dwight Howard, at least they got more out of him than they would of Bynum. Rants: John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats- When the defending champs of a year ago do not get invited to the NCAA everybody makes the Tournment that says alot. When said champs are invited to play in the NIT tourny someone should have to pay and pay big right? Robert Moses had no business being on the same court as Kentucky. But they didn’t back down and played them tough and got the win. This was a humbling that reassured John Calipari didn’t see coming. Rants: Roger Goodell and the NFL:Now the new rule is the running backs can’t spear with their helmets either running through a line or blocking a defender when protecting the quarteback..hmmmm Ok I know the NFL is on a crusade to make the game safer but…are we going to end up looking at a glorified version of flag football? Raves- Miami Heat for not losing focus during this win streak, which at 24 is the second longest in NBA history. This was the Miami Heat everyone feared would be when LeBron, DWade and Chris Bosh first came together. Winning a championship got them to relax and now they are playing inspired ball, scary. Raves: Robert Moses Colonials- Yes I know it isn’t the same tourny but NIT is still post season basketball yet have to show some love here for the Colonials. Robert Moses channeled their inner Rocky and believed in themselves and grabed the Cat(WildCats) by the tail and getting the win against the NCAA Champs from 2012 the Kentucky WildCats. This was their championship game, everything after this win will be gravy. They took the Rocky vs Apollo Creed theme seriously. Kentucky didn’t see it coming. Robert Moses believed. knocked the swagger right out of the ‘Cats. Raves: Chris Ross of Painting the Black: It’s not often Rants and Raves gets to recognize a fellow writer however this is one of those time. His lastest piece “Didn’t even see it coming” was well done. If you are a football fan and love the NFL like many of us do check it out and ask yourself where is the NFL heading? Is it going overboard with saftey? Read Chris Ross’ piece. You will feel the passion of an NFL fan. Good job Chris.
