Player of the Week

Mike G said:
Ladies and Gentleman, boys and girls, children of all ages.................another Monday has rolled around, and that can only mean one thing: time for another installment of the Nothin' But All-Stars' NBA Player of the Week. And as always, we're broadcasting straight out of the beautiful Hayward Hills in Hayward, CA at CSU, East Bay! So good luck with FINALS, and Go Pioneers!
Now back to our topic: this week was no different from the rest. Sure, there were plenty of potential candidates. But in the end, this passed week belonged to one man! And the award for this week's Nothin' But All-Stars NBA Player of the Week goes to..........NOT Deron Williams! Sorry, Jazz fans, but despite a stellar performance (and a perfect 4-0 record), this week's award goes to Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat.
Why? Well let's break it down: From March 2nd - March 8th, D. Wade led the league in scoring, averaging 35.8 points per game! Not only that, he also led the Eastern Conference in both assists and steals, averaging 11.3 assisits and 3.25 steals per game! And did anyone catch that win over Phoenix? OMG!!! 35 points and 16 assisits?!?!?!!!!!!!!! Not a bad night. And if you thought that was enough, check this out: In 9 out of his last 10 games, D. Wade has shot .50 or BETTER from the field, and has scored in double figures in ALL games played this season!
What more can I say? His numbers do the talking. So D. Wade, this one's for you!

NFL Players Lost At Sea

Cindy said:
In the name of all sports, we'd like to take this moment of silence and give prayers to all families and friends of the missing 3 players....

Unfortunately, as of March 4, the search has been called off. It's been a devastating search and hope is still out there that they are safe and seeking shelter somewhere.

If you've been living under a rock and have no idea whats going on, the story goes as follows:

Marquis Cooper and Corey Smith, who play in the NFL, sailed out into the Gulf of Mexico in perfect fishing conditions with two friends on Saturday morning (February 28). But the weather quickly turned and their 21 foot boat entirely flipped over in strong winds, tipping the four men into the ocean. Only was Nick Schuyler, 24, rescued. Due to his conditions of hypothermia and dehydration, has coast guards decided to call off the search, that the possibility of the rest of the crew has been taken by the sea.

Your Nothin But All-Stars group only sends sympathy and hope to the players' family and friends. Lets hope we see a miracle come our way.

NBA Player of the Week

MiKE G said:
It's been a long time......I shouldn't have left you.....without strong pick to step to......Think of how many weak blogs you slept through......times up......I'm sorry I kept you...thinkin of this:
Shout out to Eric B. and Rakim for the intro, and as time would anticipate, it's time for another installment of the Nothin But All-Stars' NBA Player of the Week. And as always, we're coming to you straight outta the lovely Hayward Hills from beautiful CSUEB, Home of the Pioneers!
Now this week, as always, we saw a lot of different talent put up some insane numbers! Shaquille O'Neal, LeBron James, Stephen Jackson -- any of these names ring a bell?
But one young man stood out in my mind as the TRUE NBA Player of the Week............and it wasn't David West!!! Sorry Hornets fans, but this week's Nothin' But All-Stars pick goes to the New Jersey Nets' Devin Harris! Homeboy killed it this week! Having helped the Nets to a 2-1 home record for the week, Harris averaged a league best 35.7 points per game! And as if this weren't enough, Harris also took second in the Eastern Conference for assists and minutes played, averaging 9.3 assists per game as well as 42.7 minutes per game.
And remember that win over Philadelphia? Harris scored 39 points along with his game- winning half court shot that put the 76ers away, 98-96. He also had a 42 point night against Chicago on Feb. 25, which made him only the second player (behind LeBron James) this season to score consecutive 39+ point games. Yes, Devin Harris -- it seems your time has come!

Shaq Attack!

Adam Said:

Well for the past two games, Shaq's been dominating in the scoring department without Amare and Steve. Even without the assistance of Steve Nash, Shaquille O'Neal seems like he's taken over the games lately and winning without Steve's help. Normally teams would need somebody to feed the ball to the big man, but somehow Shaq's been doing it without Steve. Last Friday, Shaq scored 45 points leading the Sun's to a victory over the Raptors and on Sunday he scored 33 points leading the game to another win over the number 1 seed Lakers. Today's victory against the Lakers was not because of Shaq, but was actually Matt Barnes the former Golden State Warriors Forward, finishing the game with 26 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assist, and 3 steals. Hot game for Matt, but back to Shaq he's scored a total of 78 points in the last two games and looking like himself backwhen he was on the Lakers or perhaps the Magics.

Week 7: Question of the Week

Will Stephon Marbury help or hurt the Celtics?

Kris said:

I think that signing Marbury was actually a good move. Even though Marbury has a history of being a troublemaker, I still think that he will help the Celtics. The Celtics desperately needed a back-up point guard to Rajon Rondo, and now they have a solid veteran. I think Garnett, Pierce, Allen, and Coach Doc Rivers will keep Marbury's attitude in check. Besides, Marbury wanted to go to the Celtics and the Celtics wanted him. Sounds like a match made in heaven. Let's not forget that Marbury was an All-Star. I think Marbury can still play at a high level if he wants to and he will want to because he is playing for a championship contender. There is no better motivation than having the opportunity to win a championship.

Tickets for $1???!!!

Cindy said:

I absolutley hate how scalpers on craigslist list their tickets for sale as $1 or "Free". Once you open them up... Its bull****! They say its a steal, when it'll cost you over $100. Sike, thank you very much, but ill stick to my flat screen in my own casa and enjoy the game with my crew. FALSE ADVERTISING. We should get them..... huh Adam. He'd know. Craigslist fanatic. :)

What do you guys think?!

Week 7 Game of the Week

Adam Said:

All right, this week game of the week is the Philadelphia 76ers vs New Jersey nets. It was an epic finish, with 1.8 seconds left on the clock Devin Harris driving the ball half court and throws the ball across half court and makes the game winning shot. In the last 18 seconds of the game, it had to be the longest 18 seconds a team had to face. Multiple attempts at the free throw line, both teams calling timeouts, and fouling each other to stop the clock. The Nets thought they sealed the game after knocking down their free throws, but as Andre Iguodala gets fouled, he makes 1 out of his 2 free throws and gives the 76ers a 1 point lead with 1.8 seconds. Indeed Devin Harris got lucky knocking down the half court shot, but the way how the game ended with a back and forth swing was unforgettable, making it an epic half court shot.

NBA Player of the Week

Mike G said:
Wow! What a week! All-Star Weekend, the trade deadline......This is the kind of excitement we at the Nuthin' But All-Stars crew live for! But now that that's said and done, it's time for another installment of the Nothin' But All-Stars' NBA Player of the Week! And as always, our pick comes straight to you from California State University, East Bay in lovely Hayward, California. Come check us out! we know all to well, there were many players we could have easily selected for this week's NBA Player of the Week: Yao, D. Wade, and LeBron, just to name a few. Despite stellar performances, this week undeniably had it in for one man!
And the award goes to..........Sorry Pao! This week's Nothin' But All-Stars' NBA Player of the Week goes to none other than Dwight Howard. Yes, despite a second place finish at the 2009 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest,"Super Man" Dwight Howard had an amazing week, averaging 25.5 points, 4.3 blocks, and a league best 15.0 rebounds per game. With his efforts, Orlando finished the week 3-1 which included a 107-102 win Tuesday night over Charlotte, in which Howard scored a career high 45 points, 19 boards and 8 blocks. This marks the first time, since Shaquille O'Neal in 2001, a player has scored at least 40 points, 15+ rebounds, and at least 5 blocks in a game. Not bad for the 6'11", 265 pounder!

The Oklahoma City Thunder-New Orleans Hornets trade was rescinded the other day because Tyson Chandler failed his physical. The initial trade had been New Orleans sending Tyson Chandler and DeVon Hardin to the Thunder for Chris Wilcox and Joe Smith. Even though this trade did not go through, the Thunder still sent Chris Wilcox to the Knicks for Malik Rose and draft pick to the Bulls for swingman Thabo Sefolosha.

Other major trade information:

-Bulls trade Larry Hughes to Knicks for guard Anthony Roberson and center Jerome James.
