    I’ve got good news and good news. Which do you want first? Let’s start with the good news: Roy Hibbert is going back to the All-Star Game. Though the lasting legacy of David Stern’s tenure as commissioner probably won’t be the elimination of the center position from the ballot, it’s […]

    Seventeen of the NBA’s 30 teams have reached the halfway point in the season. That’s good enough for this physical specimen to declare it the halfway point. With that, let’s recognize the award winners, in this scribe’s opinion, not who I think will win, but who I would beseech the […]
