Kentucky Basketball, since Calipari’s arrival, has given some optimism to a city that has been on the rise in unemployment since November of 2007. Ironically, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in Lexington has risen every Quarter since the 3rd Quarter of 2009, when Calipari began his first season with Kentucky.
For the third consecutive year John Calipari is bringing the number 1 rated recruiting class into Lexington. Despite the ongoing list of NBA studs Calipari has produced, this one may be one of his best recruiting classes in his 20 years as a Head Coach on the College level. Going into his third season at Kentucky, and already three top rated recruiting classes, Coach Calipari has successfully restored the culture of Kentucky Basketball. Continue reading

The Heat swept the regular season matchup 3-0 by a combined 30 points.
Philly: Losers of 4 of their last 5 games, the ‘6ers stumble their way into the Playoffs after having what most believe to be the surprise team in the NBA this year. Unfortunately for them, they have this Miami Heat team of Monstars to look forward to.

They tend to feast on the Philadelphia’s of the league and I expect no let-down here. If the Heat dont make the finals this year, they might as well stop paying the cable and internet bills because the media would never let them live it down so I expect them to come out focused and ready to play from the opening tip until the series is over.

The season is winding down and it is about time to think about who will reign supreme as the most valuable player to the NBA.
It is unfortunate for Dwight Howard that every season he takes a team full of slow, un-athletic 33 year olds to the Eastern Conference Finals but will probably never win an MVP award. I do tip my hat to the League for recognizing that he is arguably a MVP snub every year by giving him the Defensive Player of the Year award. Im sure Dwight wouldn’t mind letting him have at least one MVP for his troubles though.
LeBron sacrificed his MVP trophies when he decided to “Take his talents to South Beach.” Continue reading
