VS

UConn Huskies

Starters (all stats per 48 minutes):

Ray Allen, Celtics: 23.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 0.2 blocks, 1.4 steals
Ben Gordon, Pistons: 21.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 0.4 blocks, 1.1 steals
Emeka Okafor, Hornets: 15.8 points, 14.6 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 2.8 blocks, 0.7 steals
Rudy Gay, Grizzlies: 23.8 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.3 blocks, 2.0 steals
Rip Hamilton, Pistons: 24.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 0.0 blocks, 1.2 steals

Missed the cut: Caron Butler, Mavericks (injured); Charlie Villanueva, Pistons; A.J Price, Pacers; Hilton Armstrong, Hawks; Hasheem Thabeet, Rockets; Jeff Adrien, Warriors

Team synopsis: Wow. A dynamite scoring team for the boys from Storrs. This team is sort of the anti-LSU — all guard play with only Emeka there to patrol the paint. No real headaches in trying to determine their best lineup, though I suppose one could argue a spot for Charlie V due to UConn’s lack of size. Caron Butler would be in over Ben Gordon if healthy, but he’s missed too much time this year to be eligible. How you would stop Allen and Hamilton, two of the best shooters of all-time coming off screens, is anyone’s guess.  (more…)

Ima Hilton Armstrong, Ima gonna win!

People say professional athletes are lucky because they get to play a kid’s game for a living. That being the case, it should come as no surprise that people who play kids’ games would enjoy other childhood pursuits. Like Go-Karts.

Of the five Wizards players who went none were shorter than 6-7, yet they all look like they fit pretty easily. Maybe they have oversized karts for larger clientele? I didn’t even know there were indoor tracks. Perhaps OKC isn’t as bad a place as I think it is.

So who was the best driver on the course? This guy? Sounds like Andray Blatche led the most laps, but Hilton Armstrong took the last checkered flag.

I may not be a professional athlete, but I doubt I’ll ever reach an age where driving a Go-Kart won’t be fun.
