Cleveland Cavaliers are Stacked!

We don’t follow the NBA much, but we are impressed with what the Cleveland Cavaliers accomplished today.

With arguably one of the best players in the NBA, LeBron James, they acquired Shaquille O’Neal in a trade today from the Phoenix Suns.

And to top it off, they picked up the best 6th Man in the NCAA, Danny Green from North Carolina with the 16th pick in the 2nd round.

North Carolina’s Other Prospects

Surprisingly enough, our favorite, Tyler Hansbrough, was taken 13th in the 1st round of the draft by the Indiana Pacers.  Many have compared Hansbrough to Christian Lattener.  A hard worker but not enough to survive in the NBA.

Ty Lawson was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves and immediately traded to the Denver Nuggets for a future 1st round pick.

Wayne Ellington was drafted by the Timberwolves as well in the 1st round with the 28th pick.

Tar Heels NCAA Champions!

I cannot name a better way for Tyler Hansbrough to finish his career at North Carolina.

After the Tar Heels jumped to a 20+ lead at half time, breaking NCAA records for most points in the first half and largest margin at half time, the Heels beat Michigan State 89-72 Monday night.

The man of the night though was Ty Lawson.  He lead the Heels with 21 points, 8 steals and 6 assists.  Goran Suton led the Spartans with 17 points and 11 rebounds.

Congratulations to the Tar Heels and I look forward to another successful season next year!

I Finally Agree with President Obama

I never imagined the day coming so soon.  That is the day that I would finally agree with President Barack Obama.

Today, the President unveiled his NCAA Tourney bracket, and lo and behold, he chose the Tyler Hansbrough led Tar Heels to win it all.

That is about the only area we agree though because I am hoping to see 3 ACC teams in the final 4.  Here are our brackets.
