Coming off the All-Star break things got off to a good start for some NBA teams, while others didn't seem to bring it last night. Lakers, Spurs and Nuggets all played good ball while LB and the Cavs just don't seem good enough and the Pistons get smoked at home to D Howard and the Magic. We got some more good games tonight that should provide a preview of playoff atmosphere coming in April.
The athletic departments handling of Kelvin Sampson's NCAA violations seems curious to say the least. If they were going to fire the guy why not do it when they first learned of the violations? Did the AD department wait to fire his ass until they beat in state rival Purdue? Word on the street is he is out like shout in the next day or two! Looks kinda shady if you ask me!
Keepin it short today fellas....I'll be back tomorrow for more ranting!

Dallas @ New Orleans 8:00 PM EST (J Kidd's debut with the team that drafted him many years ago against the league's top PG Chris Paul)
