Last night was a good night. Not only did Villanova win, but Pittsburgh lost. And when Pittsburgh loses, the rest of the world wins. You can quote me on that. It's a Reverend Paul Revere special.
Anyway, the Sixers won as well. So did St. Joe's. And North Carolina. Temple ... not so much. But still, it was a nice little Wednesday. A Wednesday, some might say (me), worthy of some links today.
-So how's that Elton Brand signing working out? Uh, apparently not that good. Rumor has it the Sixers are willing to trade Brand if anyone is interested.
Something tells me that $82 million contract, gimpy knee and, you know, complete failure on the court this season may deter any potential trade partners. Just a guess.
-Seriously, these people have the chance to enjoy a sixth Super Bowl victory? Really?
There is no God. Oh wait, yes there is.
-Apparently, China loves the Mavericks.
-Andrew Bynum fucked up Gerald Wallace last night.
Wallace suffered a broken rib and collapsed lung as a result. Not good.
-My boy Brandon Jennings tops SLAM's point guard draft prospects for 2009.
-Jameer helps Dwight Howard prepare for the dunk contest:
-Oh yeah, Duke lost, and Al-Farouq Aminu did this:
-Yao, meet Andre:
-Awesome buzzer-beater. Oddly, no reactions from the players.
And seriously, Pittsburgh is trash.
