It's the hair stupid.

What's all the fuss aboot? So Steve Nash won the MVP. Guess what people, celebrate the fact that the media rewarded someone for being unselfish. All you hear about is how the NBA is loaded with me-first guys and Nash is the opposite of them. Let's be glad he won. Besides it's not like Shaq is upset. You've gotta love his comment about being happy for the fans in Canada. Think he would have been so nice if Kobe had beaten him. Face it- Shaq could be the MVP anytime, but Phoenix had such a great turnaround and without Nash they were not as good. I can't believe how people try to make controversies out of everything.

My pal Bill posted in his blog about the problems with the NBA. I have the opposite opinion. I had moved away from the NBA because of all the grabbing and holding (paying attention Gary Bettman), but the return of basketball is upon us. Look at the teams left- Phoenix, Seattle, Dallas and Washington play up-tempo. Miami and San Antonio move the ball well and Detroit is a balanced team. Folks, we are starting to approach the return of ball from the 80s. It's becoming more about the athletes and less about little, bald white guys trying to turn every possession into a 4th and goal. The biggest thing the NBA has going right now is David Stern. When he sees a problem, he fixes it. NY has a crappy team- bang hello lottery winner. Certain superstar is gambling on games- hello new sport and time away until the heat dies down (like you don't know that's what happened). If there's a problem yo D-Stern will solve it, check out the hook while Manu rewinds it "Denver is not a great defensive team. If we move the ball, we will get easy shots." Thanks for the honesty Manu

Folks there will be no Triple Crown winner this year, but wasn't that a race on Saturday. Too early to get too excited about baseball, but know this, the Yankees and Red Sox are flawed this year and very beatable.

I'm K-Wall and that's how I roll.
