Alan Anderson asks fans about March Madness

By Lang Whitaker, NBA.com

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — I do not watch much college basketball at all, but as today marks the start of March Madness, I will be tuning in like many other casual college hoops fans to take in the excitement and pageantry of the college games. This means seeing players I’ve never seen before, not to mention seeing teams I’ve never seen play. Although I do know most of the teams that are playing.

Still, it appears I’m not the only person who tunes into March Madness without knowing much about the teams that are playing. But as Brooklyn Nets guard Alan Anderson found out in this video for SI.com, many of the fans will root for any team…even colleges that don’t actually exist…

Raptors Take A Liking To Serge Ibaka

by Zettler Clay IV

The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Toronto Raptors earlier, 104-92. Kevin Durant scored…blah, blah, blah. KD and Russell Westbrook’s daily/nightly heroics are never not appreciated around here. It’s just that — from the vantage point of this observer — the game didn’t belong to them.

It belonged to the Raptors and Serge Ibaka. To wit, how many times have you seen Ibaka posterized twice in a game?



Ibaka got over just a bit late and Amir Johnson gladly made him pay.

And then in the fourth quarter:


To add insult to injury, Ibaka was on the wrong side of a four-point play:


I’m sure Ibaka (19 points, eight rebounds) would take the win, but I’m also sure he’d rather not get doubly posterized and four-point played in the process.
