Outside of Kansas and

Outside of Kansas and Kentucky games I just haven't been watching enough college ball this season to legitimately answer the NCAA questions.

NBA

1. What is the Atlanta Hawk's main weakness? The weak link that will cause them to lose early in the playoffs.
Don't have a guy who can take over a game offensively on a consistant basis.

2. Assuming Rubio actually wants to play for the TWolves. Do you keep Rubio & Flynn or trade one of them?
Try keeping both of them for awhile.

3. Will a team sign Rashad McCants this season? If so what team do you think is most interested?
His NBA career is over.

4. Will the Bulls re-sign Tyrus Thomas? Or will they trade him? Or just let him go?
I could see them trading him.

5. LOL Where is LeBron going?
Staying with the Cavs.

6. Will Blake Griffin's return really help the Clippers? In other words do they make the playoffs?
I personally think he is sitting out the season and the Clippers are just not admitting it yet.

7. Name a trade you really want to see happen?
Lebron James to Toronto. But seriously, T-mac trade.

8. Name a team that you hope signs a specific player in 2010.?
I hope the Knicks sign Ama're and Joe Johnson.

9. Can Orlando win it all? Why or why not?
They can, but they haven't grasped how to play with this depth yet. Vince Carter still isn't interested.

10. Can San Antonio win it all? Why or why not?
Naw, I think their time is over and Manu is breaking down.

11. What surprise team makes it past the 1st round of the playoffs?
The Toronto Raptors or The Thunder

12. Have you looked at the standings out WEST? It is brutal! There are currently 11 teams at .500 or better. Who gets the 7th & 8th seeds?
The Thunder and Jazz

Just answering the NCAA part

NCAA

1. What Mid-Major team has the best chance to reach the Final 4? If the A-10 is considered mid-major then I am taking Temple. Otherwise no one.

2. You are the GM and your team is drafting the best Mid-Major player available. When I say "best", I mean in the future who do you think will turn out to be the best pro. Who do you pick? Too many to choose I like Jerome Jordan from Tulsa and Art Parakhouski from Radford both are big men who with the right coaches can turn out to be great pros.

3. What quality team in the ACC gets beaten too many times & misses the NCAA tourney? Probably Maryland they beat FSU yesterday, but will lose to bottom feeders in the ACC beat someone big, but it won't be enough.

4. Oklahoma St. @ Oklahoma tonight. This is a MUST WIN for Oklahoma if they want to make the NCAA tourney. Will the Sooners be victorious? I don't think it's a must-win considering Oklahoma plays in the Big 12 with Kansas, Texas, K-State, and Missouri. So if Oklahoma wins agianst Ok State and any one of those 4 they will be in. I think Oklahoma wins at home.

5. I hope both Cincinnati & Seton Hall make the NCAA tournament. Will they both make it? No, just Cincinnati

6. Will any PAC 10 team make it to the Elite 8? Maybe California if they put it together. Otherwise no.

7. Who wins the Big 10? Wide open. I am going to take Purdue.

8. How many teams from the SEC make the NCAA tourney? Name them... 5 or 6 Kentucky, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Miss State, Florida, maybe Alabama (big Anthony Grant fan)

9. Who wins the WAC? Nevada.

10. Who wins Conference USA? UAB. Mike Davis is a great coach and I think UAB has sweet 16 potential.

11. Who is the best team in the Mountain West? BYU, UNLV, New Mexico, or San Diego St.? All very good, I like UNLV the most.

12. Who is the best team in the Atlantic 10? Xavier, Dayton, Rhode Island or Temple? Temple.

NBA 1. What is the Atlanta

NBA

1. What is the Atlanta Hawk's main weakness? The weak link that will cause them to lose early in the playoffs.

Marvin Williams, you know we all loved the son of a &$#%#&@! it's just when is he finally going to figure it out at the next level. Just needs to be a stop gap in between Horford and Smith, but he's providing less than that on a nightly basis.

2. Assuming Rubio actually wants to play for the TWolves. Do you keep Rubio & Flynn or trade one of them?

Flynn has done exactly what I thought he would. He's putting up mediocre numbers on a bad team. Will any of you Johhny Flynn fanatics that dubbed him the next Chris Paul check out the rookie comparison? Paul: 16-8-5-2 43% Flynn: 14-4-2-1 43% Now I'm not a math major, but I'm pretty sure Flynns got more going on for his squad than the Hornets had before Chris Paul. Flynns a 2nd-3rd tier point guard. Theirs no way he'll crack top ten in this league with so many better options out there ahead of them. Bottom line Point Guards Pass and Shooting Guards Score. I'm taking Rubio on my squad over Flynn.

3. Will a team sign Rashad McCants this season? If so what team do you think is most interested?

No, He's lost his focus in the NBA right now. Never been a big fan of him since he was in Minny. One of the biggest under producers I've ever seen. North Carolina is not about producing NBA talent anymore. Roy's in it for the rings and anything other than that is just icing on his cake.

4. Will the Bulls re-sign Tyrus Thomas? Or will they trade him? Or just let him go?
No they need to trade him to New York. I'm in the few on this, but for that team Taj Gibson is flat out the better player. Just what he does and how they flow. Tyrus is too flashy for his own good and he's been nothing but a headache in Chicago. I don't think they will let him go, but they can thank Kirt Hinrich's contract for the reason he won't be resigning.

5. LOL Where is LeBron going?
Realistically I see 5 teams making a move for him. Miami, Washington, New Jersey/York, and Charlotte. Alot of free flowing cap going around and I honestly just see him taking a MlE for one season in Miami just to get his ring with Wade.

6. Will Blake Griffin's return really help the Clippers? In other words do they make the playoffs?
No. That team will not make the playoffs again with Mike Dunleavy as their coach. You can quote me on this.

7. Name a trade you really want to see happen?
I've called this one happening after I said Portland would sign Andre Miller in a move that's worked out in the better end for them. This ones real simple. Chris Kaman for Raymond Felton. The Bobcats get a double double big man that upgrades Chandler and the Clippers get their insurance for Baron Davis and opens up time for Griffin and Jordan. It makes too much sense for this not to happen I just don't know what's taking the two sides so long.

8. Name a team that you hope signs a specific player in 2010.?
Travis Outlaw to the New York Knicks. Wilson Chandler would be an afterthought.

9. Can Orlando win it all? Why or why not?
Yes Orlando is hands down the deepest roster in the NBA. Did I mention Dwight Howard, Vince Carter, Rashard Lewis, and Jameer Nelson start for this team? Yikes!

10. Can San Antonio win it all? Why or why not?
No, Parkers assists numbers are far too low, I don't trust Ginobili's health and Richard Jefferson just looks like he's 35 at this point in the game.

11. What surprise team makes it past the 1st round of the playoffs?
Whichever team plays Cleveland. I think this team is a disaster waiting to happen

12. Have you looked at the standings out WEST? It is brutal! There are currently 11 teams at .500 or better. Who gets the 7th & 8th seeds?
Oklahoma, Memphis sneak into roster spots. No thanks to Hasheem Thabeet in Memphis case.

NCAA 1. What Mid-Major

NCAA

1. What Mid-Major team has the best chance to reach the Final 4?
BYU
2. You are the GM and your team is drafting the best Mid-Major player available. When I say "best", I mean in the future who do you think will turn out to be the best pro. Who do you pick?
Darington Hobson
3. What quality team in the ACC gets beaten too many times & misses the NCAA tourney?
Maryland
4. Oklahoma St. @ Oklahoma tonight. This is a MUST WIN for Oklahoma if they want to make the NCAA tourney. Will the Sooners be victorious?
Nope, they aren't even close to being a tourney team win or lose tonight.
5. I hope both Cincinnati & Seton Hall make the NCAA tournament. Will they both make it?
Cincinnati, no. I think they need consistency out of Yancy Gates to make it, and he hasn't showed that he can be. Seton Hall, no. Jeremy Hazell would have to pull a few BE games out of his butt for that to happen.
6. Will any PAC 10 team make it to the Elite 8?
No.
7. Who wins the Big 10?
Michigan State.
8. How many teams from the SEC make the NCAA tourney? Name them...
Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and Mississippi State
9. Who wins the WAC?
Fresno State
10. Who wins Conference USA?
UTEP
11. Who is the best team in the Mountain West? BYU, UNLV, New Mexico, or San Diego St.?
BYU
12. Who is the best team in the Atlantic 10? Xavier, Dayton, Rhode Island or Temple?
Dayton
NBA
1. What is the Atlanta Hawk's main weakness? The weak link that will cause them to lose early in the playoffs.
Early as in the 2nd round? The presence of the LeBron, Orlando, and Boston.
2. Assuming Rubio actually wants to play for the TWolves. Do you keep Rubio & Flynn or trade one of them?
They can try it out for a year. It isn't as if that Minnesota outfit will be competitive at that point lest they get lucky in this year's lottery.
3. Will a team sign Rashad McCants this season? If so what team do you think is most interested?
Not a big market for out of work chuckers who don't play defense. Does Europe or China count?
4. Will the Bulls re-sign Tyrus Thomas? Or will they trade him? Or just let him go?
They'll renounce him at the end of the year.
5. LOL Where is LeBron going?
To multiple Finals appearances with Cleveland.
6. Will Blake Griffin's return really help the Clippers? In other words do they make the playoffs?
Nope.
7. Name a trade you really want to see happen?
I don't know if it will happen, but I think New Orleans will be angling to get Dampier's expiring deal and will probably make available anyone not named Chris Paul to do so.
8. Name a team that you hope signs a specific player in 2010.?
New Orleans signs Shaq.
9. Can Orlando win it all? Why or why not?
Probably not. I see a 2nd round series with Boston ending poorly.
10. Can San Antonio win it all? Why or why not?
Absolutely. The regular season doesn't matter to these guys. It is one long preseason. They know when to peak. I worry about seeing Bonner, McDyess, and Blair in the playoffs, but the playoff roster isn't set in stone.
11. What surprise team makes it past the 1st round of the playoffs?
Chalk city.
12. Have you looked at the standings out WEST? It is brutal! There are currently 11 teams at .500 or better. Who gets the 7th & 8th seeds?
New Orleans and Houston. All those teams can beat up on the dregs of the East, but NO and Hou have good in-conference records as well. My only worry is with New Orleans selling off West to trim payroll and future obligations.

NCAA  1. What Mid-Major

NCAA  

1. What Mid-Major team has the best chance to reach the Final 4? Gonzaga. Dayton would probably be my 2nd choice.

2. You are the GM and your team is drafting the best Mid-Major player available. When I say "best", I mean in the future who do you think will turn out to be the best pro.  Who do you pick? I have got to go with Harris (Gonzaga). I just have been really impressed with his skills so far. (2. Moultrie is a very close 2nd)

3. What quality team in the ACC gets beaten too many times & misses the NCAA tourney? Bold prediction I made over the summer was that Georgia Tech wouldn't make the tourney. I'll stay with it even though that recent win over Duke was huge for this team. I see them losing a BUNCH of ACC road games though.

4. Oklahoma St. @ Oklahoma tonight.  This is a MUST WIN for Oklahoma if they want to make the NCAA tourney. Will the Sooners be victorious? Yeah I think Oklahoma wins. They still have to get really hot during conference play to make the tourney though.

5. I hope both Cincinnati & Seton Hall make the NCAA tournament. Will they both make it? I actually think neither will make it now. In the summer I said I though Cincy would make it. I think both teams end up with 11 losses. Neither will have enough quality wins to make it.

6.  Will any PAC 10 team make it to the Elite 8? Nope. If California had better post players than I would give them a good chance. Christopher, Theo, & Randle can't do everything.

7.  Who wins the Big 10? Mich St.

8.  How many teams from the SEC make the NCAA tourney? Name them... Kentucky, Ole Miss, Miss.St., Florida, Alabam, Tennessee, Vanderbilt. I'm going to say 7 teams.

9. Who wins the WAC? Nevada

10. Who wins Conference USA? I said Tulsa in the summer & I'm sticking with that pick.

11. Who is the best team in the Mountain West? BYU, UNLV, New Mexico, or San Diego St.? BYU

12. Who is the best team in the Atlantic 10? Xavier, Dayton, Rhode Island or Temple? Dayton

NBA

1. What is the Atlanta Hawk's main weakness?  The weak link that will cause them to lose early in the playoffs.  Mike Bibby..I've never been a fan.  I just think he will hurt them in the playoffs. He settles for too many 3's. At times he plays very very lazy. If Josh Smith could shoot that would help too. If Atlanta gets matched against the Raptors 1st round then that would be interesting.

2. Assuming Rubio actually wants to play for the TWolves. Do you keep Rubio & Flynn or trade one of them?  I would trade Flynn.

3. Will a team sign Rashad McCants this season? If so what team do you think is most interested? It doesn't look good. You figure a team would've alread signed him. Hopefully he finds a home next year. I haven't heard any rumors involving teams interested in him which is a bad sign. I've never seen such a young player with some upside left that has averaged double figure scoring for his career not be able to find a team.

4. Will the Bulls re-sign Tyrus Thomas? Or will they trade him? Or just let him go?  I think they are going to re-sign him.

5. LOL Where is LeBron going? Gut feeling, still think he goes to the Knicks.

6. Will Blake Griffin's return really help the Clippers? In other words do they make the playoffs? Blake will help some but not as much as most people anticipate. Clippers fall just short of the playoffs.

7. Name a trade you really want to see happen? I wouldn't mind to see Anthony Randolph get traded to the Bulls or anywhere really. Change of scenery may give him a spark.

8. Name a team that you hope signs a specific player in 2010.?  I want the Bulls to re-sign Tyrus Thomas & sign Rashad McCants.

9. Can Orlando win it all? Why or why not? Yes, if they stay healthy. If they give Brandon Bass more playing time. If they avoid the Celtics completely. Perkins owns Howard...that is a bad matchup for the Magic.  They have the depth to win it all. A variety of scorers plus a legit Center. 

10. Can San Antonio win it all? Why or why not? Yes, once again staying healthy is key. Well balanced team. Very solid role players. Experience...

11. What surprise team makes it past the 1st round of the playoffs? Chicago Bulls. I hope they play Cleveland 1st Round.

12. Have you looked at the standings out WEST? It is brutal! There are currently 11 teams at .500 or better. Who gets the 7th & 8th seeds?  Utah & Houston.  Utah has too much talent not to make it. Houston is just too tough & well coached.

What surprise team makes it

What surprise team makes it past the 1st round of the playoffs?

"Whichever team plays Cleveland. I think this team is a disaster waiting to happen"

"Chicago Bulls. I hope they play Cleveland"

You have got to be &$#%#&@! me...I swear, If Clevland loses in the first round against a 7th or 8th seed(Chicago, NY, Cats, Toronto etc.) I would quit watching ball...Clevland would demolish Chicago...Chicago is one of the worst teams on offense in the whole league while Clevland is one of the best defensive teams..I don't see how that equates into a 1st round win for Chicago...How is this team a disaster waiting to happen? I find it much more likely that LA, Orlando, or Boston would have a problem/problems...Clevland is without a doubt the best team in the NBA now.

NBA 1. What is the Atlanta

NBA

1. What is the Atlanta Hawk's main weakness? The weak link that will cause them to lose early in the playoffs.
They have alot of them, Frount court is weak, Josh Smith is a wildcard as is Marvin Williams...

2. Assuming Rubio actually wants to play for the TWolves. Do you keep Rubio & Flynn or trade one of them?
I keep Flynn, He is having a good rookie season if you actually watch the games...He will only get better...Rubio has more trade value so I would get rid of him...He is still that intriguing Euro player that has all that potential in GM's minds

3. Will a team sign Rashad McCants this season? If so what team do you think is most interested?
Teams that need scoring would be interested...maybe Chicago, or NJ...

4. Will the Bulls re-sign Tyrus Thomas? Or will they trade him? Or just let him go?
I think they trade him...they have alot of weaknesses at every position other than PG really, and Tomas does have some trade value.

5. LOL Where is LeBron going?
Im guessing NY...but who cares what I think?

6. Will Blake Griffin's return really help the Clippers? In other words do they make the playoffs?
No but they will be close...Im almost certain that when Griffin comes back Camby will be gone..so we need to see what their team looks like than..

7. Name a trade you really want to see happen?Melo and Nene for Eddy Curry...lol, but seriously..Jamison to the Cavs for Z...I didn't like the idea at first but I think itcould be brilliant.

8. Name a team that you hope signs a specific player in 2010.?NY..Lebron

9. Can Orlando win it all? Why or why not?No, Howard is not the same as last year, he is lacking motivation and fire.

10. Can San Antonio win it all? Why or why not?No,they are done...sad to say but they had a great run.

11. What surprise team makes it past the 1st round of the playoffs?OKC

12. Have you looked at the standings out WEST? It is brutal! There are currently 11 teams at .500 or better. Who gets the 7th & 8th seeds? OKC and NO

i dont know what the hell is

i dont know what the hell is wrong with my terps. we will beat unc or duke while they are number one then in the same season lose to william and mary or towson. it baffles me every single year then when it looks like we are dead we go on a run and get into the tourney. i do think our coach is easily one of the top coaches in college with what he does with the talent we get. i think every team in the acc gets a couple of allamericans or top 25-50 guys every year which hurts alot since our state arguably produces the best talent every year

1. What Mid-Major team has

1. What Mid-Major team has the best chance to reach the Final 4?---Northern Iowa.

2. You are the GM and your team is drafting the best Mid-Major player available. When I say "best", I mean in the future who do you think will turn out to be the best pro. Who do you pick? ---Paul George easily.

3. What quality team in the ACC gets beaten too many times & misses the NCAA tourney?---Wake Forest

4. Oklahoma St. @ Oklahoma tonight. This is a MUST WIN for Oklahoma if they want to make the NCAA tourney. Will the Sooners be victorious?---No. OK State should handle them.

5. I hope both Cincinnati & Seton Hall make the NCAA tournament. Will they both make it?---I know Cincy will...Seton Hall will probably be NIT bound. I know Is said they were my sleeper and tthat they would make it before the season, they don't have the defensive ability right now and Hazell will shoot them out of games...

6. Will any PAC 10 team make it to the Elite 8? ----Hell naw...

7. Who wins the Big 10?---Michigan State.

8. How many teams from the SEC make the NCAA tourney? Name them...---6. Kentucky, Ole Miss, Florida, Vandy, Tennessee, and Mississippi State.

9. Who wins the WAC?---Nevada.

10. Who wins Conference USA?---UTEP.

11. Who is the best team in the Mountain West? BYU, UNLV, New Mexico, or San Diego St.?---UNLV...

12. Who is the best team in the Atlantic 10? Xavier, Dayton, Rhode Island or Temple?---Temple

NBA

1. What is the Atlanta Hawk's main weakness?---The weak link that will cause them to lose early in the playoffs. They won't lose early, but their weakness right now is their PG play. Bibby is a liability on D at times, and he's not going to put a ton of pressure on opposing PG's when slashing....

2. Assuming Rubio actually wants to play for the TWolves. Do you keep Rubio & Flynn or trade one of them?---I would definitely trade Rubio...

3. Will a team sign Rashad McCants this season? If so what team do you think is most interested?---He won't play this season....We'll see next year though. He's still a dynamite scorer...

4. Will the Bulls re-sign Tyrus Thomas? Or will they trade him? Or just let him go?---He'll be dealt around the deadline I think...they can get rid of him and still be straight. They need a 2-guard who can score....

5. LOL Where is LeBron going?---New Jersey/Brooklyn Nets...

6. Will Blake Griffin's return really help the Clippers? In other words do they make the playoffs?---I think they will make the playoffs, and Griffin will be a large part of it...

7. Name a trade you really want to see happen?----Elton Brand for anyone...

8. Name a team that you hope signs a specific player in 2010.?----Philadelphia 76ers...

9. Can Orlando win it all? Why or why not?----Yes, they can. They have the offensive and defensive players to make it happen, and it doesn't hurt to have a dominant post presence like Howard...

10. Can San Antonio win it all? Why or why not?---No. They don't have the frontcourt to do it..Besides Duuncan of course, and even he's not as dominant as usual...

11. What surprise team makes it past the 1st round of the playoffs?---I don't see anyone pulling an upset...

12. Have you looked at the standings out WEST? It is brutal! There are currently 11 teams at .500 or better. Who gets the 7th & 8th seeds?---Houston and Utah...

NBA 1. What is the Atlanta

NBA

1. What is the Atlanta Hawk's main weakness? The weak link that will cause them to lose early in the playoffs. - They don't have any glaring weaknesses. They've improved, but still aren't better than Cleveland, Boston and Orlando. I think they'll have a better chance of beating Boston or Orlando in the 2nd round than Cleveland.

2. Assuming Rubio actually wants to play for the TWolves. Do you keep Rubio & Flynn or trade one of them? - Kahn shouldn't rush to make a decision. Let them play together for at least a season.

3. Will a team sign Rashad McCants this season? If so what team do you think is most interested? Nope...

4. Will the Bulls re-sign Tyrus Thomas? Or will they trade him? Or just let him go? - I think there's a slim chance he gets traded. The most likely scenario is he plays the season out and is then renounced.

5. LOL Where is LeBron going? - Who knows? I'm going to believe he's staying with Cleveland until I see otherwise.

6. Will Blake Griffin's return really help the Clippers? In other words do they make the playoffs? - First, we have to see him return, but YES... He'll help them the moment he steps on the court. Not necesarily with his scoring at first, but with his energy, hustle, rebounding and leadership. His hustle and energy are contagious. The Clippers are currently one game under .500 and are on a four game winning streak. They've beaten both the Celtics and Lakers in the last six games. Baron and Kaman are looking great, and have developed great chemistry. The team has been playing great defense and looks comfortable with one another. They have a BRUTAL eight game road trip approaching... Starting on Jan. 21st they'll play Denver, Washington, Boston, New Jersey, Minnesota, Cleveland, Chicago and Atlanta. I think how they do on this road trip will say a lot about their chances of making the playoffs. It'd be nice to have Griffin for the road trip.

7. Name a trade you really want to see happen? - No preference... Just a big blockbuster type deal lol.

8. Name a team that you hope signs a specific player in 2010? - No preference.

9. Can Orlando win it all? Why or why not? No. I don't think this season's team is better than last season's team. Dwight's touches and points are down this season. VC can't stay healthy, nor is he the matchup problem Turk was. The chances are they'll be matched up against Boston in the 2nd round and that's a bad matchup.

10. Can San Antonio win it all? Why or why not? - Yes, I think they can. They're built for the playoffs. Right now they're flying under the radar.. Coasting, but are currently 3rd in the West. Pop isn't over using his best players... Duncan, Parker, Ginobli and Jefferson are all playing less than 32 mins per game. For the person who said Manu is breaking down... I guess you didn't see him crossover and dunk on two-three players from the Nets the other night?

11. What surprise team makes it past the 1st round of the playoffs? - I don't think there will be any surprise first round upsets this season.

12. Have you looked at the standings out WEST? It is brutal! There are currently 11 teams at .500 or better. Who gets the 7th & 8th seeds? - Tough... I'll be able to answer this question better at the All-Star break/Trade Deadline.
