OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS

After falling to #2 in the rankings, the Michigan Wolverines received some more disappointment over the weekend as they fell 17-16 on a last second field goal to the 25th ranked Penn State Nittany Lions. This loss opened up the B1G East and set up a potential deciding game in the final week between Michigan and long time rival and 7th ranked, Ohio State.

SOMEONE HAS GOTTA DO IT

As the AFC North tries to figure out who really wants to win the division and play in the playoffs, the battle heats up as Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Baltimore all win their respective games. The Pittsburgh Steelers will play Monday night to see if they can remain tied with Baltimore for the lead at 6-6.

STARS OF TOMORROW

Recruiting season begins to wind down but there are still some major decisions to be made as teams look to fill out their classes. Will these players be able to live up to the hype? Or will they crumble under the pressure of expectations. Stay tuned to find out.

EASTBOUND AND DOWN

The battle for the NFC East remains hot as well, for all the right reasons as both the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys picked up wins on Sunday. The Eagles beat the Falcons 31-28 and the Cowboys beat the Panthers 31-20, making the NFC South a bloodbath as well as the league heads towards the playoffs.

    All-Time starting 5

    Recommended Posts

    If you could create an all-time NBA starting 5, who would you pick and why?  What coach would you choose to coach them?  

     

    Imagine that they would be able to practice together and the coach would implement a system that works.  

     

    Bonus:  Pick a 6th man.

    There wouldn’t really be too much logic for my starting five, just what I think would be fun to see.

     

    PG: John Stockton 

    SG: Michael Jordan

    SF: Kevin Durant

    PF: Kevin Garnett

    C: Tim Duncan

    6th man: If we’re going traditionally sixth man, Manu Ginobili in his prime

    Coach: Phil Jackson

    PG: Steve Nash

    SG: Michael Jordan

    SF: Elgin Baylor

    PF: Elvin Hayes

    C: Hakeem Olajuwon

    6th Man: John Havlicek

    Coach: Jerry Sloan

     

    This is not just a collection of great players, but a well-rounded ROSTER that would dominate its opponents, with a coach who always got his players to play hard and overachieve - not that this group would need motivation.  Sloan coached 22 years IN UTAH, and had 1 losing season.  He deserves so much more respect than he gets.

     

    Was very tempted to go with Dennis Johnson or James Worthy as 6th man.  I don't know that you could go wrong in either case.

    For my team to actually win games

    PG: Jason Kidd

    SG: Michael Jordan

    SF: Larry Bird

    PF: Lebron James

    C: Hakeen Olajuwon

    6th Man: Kevin Durant

     

    Coach: Steve Kerr

     

    This team has an ability to spread the floor and has multiple playmakers and defensive versatility. 

    KD is also the most versatile scorer of all time. At their peak, all of these guys are above average defenders and will stymie anyone on the perimeter.

    Steve Kerr's offensive system is also really good.

    PG: Chris Paul

    SG: Michael Jordan

    SF: Scottie Pippen (Better synergy with Jordan than LeBron would be here)

    PF: Tim Duncan

    C:  Bill Russell

    6th Man:  Magic Johnson 
    Coach:  Greg Popovich (will get the most out of a defensive team like this)


    I picked team players and defensive studs around the dynamic duo of Jordan and Pippen.  Paul + Jordan are enough of an iso threat, in my opinion, and Pippen gives enough outside scoring to keep defenses honest.  There is nobody on the team who would have a significant problem with Jordan being the leader.  Magic gives us the ultimate versatile 6th man, able to play 4 positions on the court, while still scoring and defending at a high level.
