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

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.
