Another Week in Hoops

May 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 156

My time in Los Angeles draws to a close but just because I'm on the west coast I've clearly been following what's going on in the basketball world. I finally got a chance to hoop in LA and the game is just as I anticipated. Strictly fast break without the flash-n-flare ball handling skills that's displayed in Chicago as well as the NYC. Overall I stand my claim Chicago truly does have the best ball players my city has the best overall players in the country and have the most heart. Let it be known the NBA MVP does hail from the Windy City.

Speaking of the Windy City, props to Derrick Rose for being pissed of at the Indiana Pacer for celebrating on the United Center floor after defeating the Chicago Bulls earlier this week. The rest of the club should have been just as upset Michael Jordan & Scottie Pippen would have not allowed the other team to celebrate on our home court. Once again that just shows the Chicago mentality when it comes to basketball WE DO THIS!!!!!!!!

I have no idea what's going on with my Fighting ILLINI?!?!? It seems once they're ranked, that's when they start losing. This team is young but it starts and ends with Meyers Leonard who needs to become more dominant in the post. The legit 7'0 center has pro potential but is not using his skills at all times. DJ Richardson & Brandon Paul have shown promise but still this teams needs to do better or they'll end up in the NIT like they did two years ago.

The D-League of College Basketball aka the Kentucky Wildcats are once again #1 in the nation. The Cats are clicking and Anthony Davis is playing like 2012 #1 NBA pick that everyone projects. Expect this group to cut down the nets in April.

Recap: As expected The Kentucky Wildcats cut down the nets first Monday in April then made their much anticipated trip to the White House to meet President Obama. Also Coach Cal aka Coach one & done is back on the recruiting trail as his starting five all declared for the 2012 NBA Draft with Anthony Davis the most likely top pick. Marcus Teague would have benefited another year in school but his strong play late in the season and during the tournament elevated his draft stock. My prediction, add Anthony Davis along with Derrick Rose, and John Wall as #1 picks coached by John Calapari.

My Chicago Bulls have gone fishing for the summer but I really don't acknowledge the Sixers victory due to the fact that our MVP Derrick Rose tore his ACL and Jokim Noah suffered an ankle injury. When healthy, the Bulls are the best team in the NBA. Well I'll blog about the deepest draft in recent years next time.
