I am currently finishing up my 8th semester at Appalachian State, and graduating in a couple of weeks.
I've been busy with non-basketball...or at least I've been attempting to be busy with non-basketball.
I'll be writing a bit for The Coolest Basketball Site (TM) this summer, which I am extremely excited about.
Anyways, here are my silly opinions on basketball as the playoffs begin:
- Kevin Love is NOT the MIP. He's not even in the 100 best players in the league. (Individual rebounds and Rebound% are not all that telling). And he is most DEFINITELY not the MVP *shudder*.
- Derrick Rose is not the MVP. Even if you're supposed to choose "Best player on the Best team," he does not appear to be that. He is a close overall candidate by some agreeable measures, however.
- Oh, and, with Harrison Barnes staying in Chapel Hill, the pre-season rankings will look something like this:
- #1: North Carolina
- #2: Ohio St.
- #1,000: Eventual National Champion
