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

    So my team would be as follows:

     

    PG - Magic Johnson - Obviously one of if not the best PGs in the game.  I chose him because of his size, vision, and also because in his career he played with other huge superstars.  I think when building this fictional team you have to balance "alpha" dogs with these superstar guys who can fit into a role.  

    SG - Michael Jordan - the GOAT.

    SF - Kawhi Leonard - "OMG YOU'RE DUMB, WHY NOT LEBRON?!?!?!"  Listen - MJ is my alpha dog on this team.  Kawhi brings a lot of things to the table.  He's the best defender in the NBA, he's the only person who has been able to consistently make life difficult for Lebron.  Also, isn't Kawhi basically just a evolved version of Scottie Pippen?  He can shoot the long ball a little better, he might be a little better individual scorer.  Pippen probably has him beat on playmaking, but that's why we have Magic.  

    PF - Larry Bird - Bird does a lot of things very well.  He's clutch, he can shoot multiple types of shots, and he's a bad bad man.  I think he gives us a lot of flexibility with our lineup.  

    C - Tim Duncan - Normally I'd put Tim at the PF position, but with Larry on the roster I'll bump him to Center.  Frankly, I think Tim Duncan should be on every single person's all-time starting 5.  He is a top 10 player of all time, that fact can not be disputed.  For a franchise player he had the best attitude and was the best teammate of any superstar in the history of the NBA.  When the Spurs needed him to score 40 he did it.  He had a near quadruple double in the closeout game of the 2003 NBA finals.  He's the perfect fit for a team of the game's best players. 

    6th man  - Jerry West - the logo... 'nuff said. 

     

    Coach - Gregg Popovich - Every Spurs team that won a championship had a different flavor on how they got it done.  Gregg is the best coach in the NBA when it comes to adjusting the gameplan to the team he is provided.  I trust Gregg more than any other coach to find the best system for my group.
