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.
