Final Four Preview
After a slow start, this year’s tournament has really picked up. Looking back, the scores of the Elite Eight games were a little misleading. Memphis gave the Buckeyes a pretty good run, while that UCLA/Kansas game was nip and tuck until the Jayhawks’ wheels came off at the very end. (Remind me to never pick a Bill Self-led team to go to the Final Four again.) The Oregon/Florida game was closer than the score would indicate and G’town’s comeback against a talented (yet directionless) North Carolina squad provided some of the best moments of the tournament.
So, now we’ve got our Final Four, and we couldn’t have two better matchups. In the early game, we have the battle of two seven-footers — one’s a freshman phenom who has been destined for stardom since he was just a pup, while the other is a battle-tested junior who has worked on his game, developing into a future lottery pick. In the late game, we’ve got a rematch of last year’s title bout and, save for Jordan Farmar, all the stars from both teams stayed in school to play for this very opportunity.
This is a Final Four with some serious star power…

Take The Houston Rockets -2 Over LA @ 10:35 EDT
In March, the Los Angeles Lakers are 5-0 when Kobe Bryant scores more than 40 points, and 0-8 when he doesn’t. To beat the Lakers you simply have to keep Kobe in check. Houston is one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. They rank first in the NBA in field goal percentage defense (42.6 percent) and second in scoring defense (91.0 ppg). LA is coming off a 88-86 loss to Memphis in a game where they shot 34.4% from the field. Kobe finished with 23 points on 7-of-26 shooting. The only time this season the Lakers shot a poorer percentage than they did on Tuesday was their last meeting with Houston. The Rockets are now at full strength with Yao Ming back and have won 10 of their last 13. Houston’s defense will keep Kobe under 40 and that’s all it takes to beat LA. Houston, a two point favorite, should cover.

The All-Underutilized Team
With the NBA regular season winding down, I thought it would be a good time to take a look at those players that just don’t get enough love, the guys who produce quality numbers in limited roles. Here are the five guys that make up my All-Underutilized Team.
According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Bengal wide receiver Chris Henry was arrested for driving with a suspended license after failing to use a turn signal last Wednesday. He also wasn’t wearing a seat belt.
Let me get this straight, Chris. You know you’re driving on a suspended license, yet you don’t wear a seat belt and decide not to use your turn signal either? Momma must be proud…
