NOW HE CAN DISAPPEAR!!! good riddance lavar ball; see you again when #2 son goes to UCLA. alonzo ball totally outplayed by UK's two freshman. where was that jump shot that was better than magic's? 10 points in a mediocre - stats line. goodbye to the ball family for a few years!!!

"MAGIC JOHNSON WITH A JUMP SHOT"_ make me puke, mr. ball. alonzo ball has the same set shot going as magic did when he entered the league. i remember in the 6th game of the series against the 76ers, bobby jones-all NBA defender many times, gave magic room, so magic threw in one of his 25+ foot set shots; next time down, bobby jones played him tight and magic drove right past him for a lay-up. comparing his kid to magic johnson is foolish enough; saying he is better is absolutely silly. magic johnson improved on a facet of his game every single year in the early stages of his career. magic also won an NCAA trophy with help from greg kelser and others- let's see how far young mr. ball can take the bruins.

Big Baby, the celtics are within range of cleveland, but methinks that the cavaliers will still come out on top in their conference. boston is having a great, great season with that little feller from washington leading the way. it is nice to see that small good players with enough talent can still make it in the NBA. another good one from the pac-?, which still has 3 teams in the tournament, as does the SEC. ucla and kentucky-i remember when they played for the title in 1975, the year after my favorite ever, bill walton, left for the pros. i have taken to liking john calipari a lot, and think he will be coaching a winner when they play the bruins.

Big Baby, his shooting technique is so bizarre, and i don't think that alonzo ball will score much in the NBA. he is a fine passer, but that shot is totally blackball by any decent NBA defender. he is not as bad as kendall marshall was (couldn't shoot and couldn't go to his right; how in the world did phoenix waste a first round pick on him?) whoever takes him better be ready to run a lot of give and goes, cause he won't get his shot off unless he is 35 feet out.

CREDIT TO THE COACH, NOT RILES!!! when the heat season started, nobody except dave the drummer gave them a chance at much. a collection of 2nd and 3rd stringers was the team. spoelstra may have learned from the wordsmith, just as riley learned from the many great coaches for whom he played. am hoping they hold on to the last playoff spot so that they can play cleveland and win a game- which never would have been imagines at season's outset.

THE HEAT ARE IN THE LAST SPOT FOR THE PLAYOFFS!!! a testament to erik spoelstar's coaching. they might not get far, but making the postseason after a horrible start is an achievement.

Big Baby, maybe the bruins can outscore kentucky and give UNC what i would think is an easier path to the final four should they get past butler.

OC Dolphin, yes it is an apple and i am taking baby steps in learning to use this thing. frustrating isn't strong enough to convey how i feel trying to make entries into my "smartphone"!

Big Baby, how did weasel face's team allow 65 points in the second half yesterday? i believe that is what i saw. UNC barely escaped and won't get by kentucky should they meet in the great eight.

OC Dolphin, nobody is gonna eclipse the bruins in titles-7 in a row and 11 overall. duke might have more wins because the tournamentwas 16 teams for many of the bruins championship years.

OC Dolphin, i don't have the brackets in front of me, but villanova, duke and kansas look like 3/4 of the 4 for me. who does UNC have to play in their bracket? west virginia?

SC WINS A GAME!!! texas southern doesn't appear to be the team to topple a #1 seed. justin jackson has his stroke so far today.

GREAT GAME: arkansas/seton hall was rooting for the new jersey pirates, but a tough call on a foul cost the hall. the fouler pushed him from behind with two hands and the solid pig went to the floor. i am in agreement that besides intentional it was a flagrant foul according to the letter of the rulebook.

citizens, will be sticking to sports. the political stuff just seeps out every now and then, but am putting it behind me on the blog. nothing that anybody posted supporting the actions of our President has moved me one good old american inch. how about the dunkers of florida gulf coast going against the leonard hamilton coached seminoles. still believe that UNC is capable of a miserable game and will probably not get to the great eight.

Big Baby, another version of our president's travel ban bites the dust in hawaii. it seems to me that his administration is imploding, "recusing', firing flynn and having one of his aides register as a "foreign agent". his rating approval wise is sinking lower with every poll. hoping the guy can start getting it together-he is making obama look like lincoln with his delusional paranoia and its ramifications. he is our president, but imagining 3 years and 10 months more of this is frightful.

CAN UNC BE THE FIRST... #1 to lose in the first round? i like the tar heels, but they are horribly inconsistent, especially justin jackson, who i can't believe won ACC player of the year over luke kennard. if north carolina plays the way they did in their second meeting with a mediocre virginia team that chased them all over the court and held them to 43, whoever they play will be competitive with a gritty effort.
