The NBA is picking up right where it left off and Kevin Durant is headed toward the MVP 30+ points at a time. Kevin Durant is everything Tracy McGrady was supposed to be. Lebron James dominance means absolutely nothing until june and if the Dallas Mavericks don't make the playoffs this year I can go back to telling everyone that Dirk Nowitzki is overrated who just happened to have a magical june '11 that made us forget his previous diappointments. Kobe Bryant can't drop 40 whenever he wants to these days but he is still the most skilled player in the NBA. I told ya'll last week that Portland and it's killer depth will be a dark horse this year and now you can add the 76ers to that list. If you are gambler bet against the Utah Jazz before Vegas figures out that they are 1 of the worst teams EVER!
Nice recovery Boston Red Sox for getting Andrew Bailey at a fraction of the cost of what you would have to had paid to keep Jonathan Papelbon. Nice work Chicago White Sox for re-upping with lefty John Danks, he's a stud who just had an off year. Nothing sounds more right than Alex Rodriguez getting radical procedures done on his body... in Germany...after being recommended by KOBE BRYANT! Their probably are only a few athletes that Germany would do this procedure for, Kobe, A-Rod, Jay Cutler, Barry Bonds... Tim Tebow you say?...(Genius alert)KEINE MOGLICHKEIT (That's no way in Germany)
Speaking of Tim Tebow I think his legacy takes a big hit if he loses at home to a crappy KC Chief team with Kyle Orton, the guy he replaced, at the helm. It's the equivalent of dumping somebody for someone else and then later that dumped someone turns out to be way better than the person you're with. This is just a game that special players win, period.
This Bears season hurts me more than other seasons, cause I believe that this was their best team they had in years, better than last years conference runner-up and yes better than their '06 Super Bowl team. They had special teams, a solid defense and very good QB play which has happened maybe 5 times in the last 40 years for the Bears, but thats the way the cookie crumbles.
BTW Tom Brady will probably finish 3rd in MVP balloting, but he's slowly making a legitimate claim to being the best player in the history of the NFL.
After going 6-9 last week on my football games, it appears that I indeed do not have a grasp on the NFL but I shall not be deterred.
New Orleans o 54
Denver under 37
San Fran -11
If you have a gambling Problem:
Green Bay +3
Miami over 41
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
