NBA Star/Goat of the Week – Week 21

NBA Star of the Week – Chris Paul

CP3

Don’t look now but the Hornets are back on top in the West

Chris Paul – Paul is making a strong push for MVP, leading the Hornets to a 5-game winning streak and the top seed in the Western Conference.  New Orleans has won 7 of 8 overall, including wins over Boston, San Antonio, the Lakers and Houston.  During the streak, Paul has averaged 24 points, 13 assists and 3 steals.  Anyone who thinks that these guys aren’t capable of winning the Western Conference come playoff time. better wake up.

NBA Goat of the Week – James Dolan

James Dolan

Don’t think we forgot about you, Knicks!

James Dolan – It has been far too long since I’ve posted something negative about the New York Knicks.  Well, apparently James Dolan came out this week and said that he would prefer to keep Isiah Thomas.  WHAT?!  How is this possible?  If i was a Knicks fan, I would demand an investigation.  Something is just wrong with whats going on with the Knicks.

NBA Star/Goat of the Week (Week 19) – Tracy McGrady & Mark Cuban

NBA Star of the Week – Tracy McGrady

Tracy McGrady

McGrady and the Rockets can do no wrong

Tracy McGrady – Even the injury to Yao Ming cannot slow the Rockets down.  McGrady has carried the Rockets since Yao’s injury and their win streak is now at 18.  In three wins last week, McGrady averaged 32.3 pts, 7.7 ast, 5.0 reb while shooting 56% from the field.

NBA Goat of the Week – Mark Cuban

Mark Cuban

Cubes is now anti-blogger?

Mark Cuban – According to the Dallas News, Mark Cuban has banned all bloggers from the Mavs locker room. Apparently, bloggers wrote things that Cuban doesn’t approve of so they lost their access.  Of all people to pull this… what a hypocrite!
