Rajon Rondo’s injury certainly hurts the Celtics’ chance of making a deep playoff run, but why all may not be lost just yet.
First of all, I’d like to celebrate my first victory of Power Rankings. I took some heat last week from friends for not ranking Duke in my top 5. My rationale was that the Blue Devils cannot seem to win without Ryan Kelly who is out indefinitely. Wednesday night Duke lost to Miami 90-63 just days after they were ranked first. Duke fans (like myself) shouldn’t fret too much. Kelly was still out and there’s a chance he comes back. Also, Seth Curry and Quinn Cook went a combined 1-22 from the field, which will absolutely never happen again. What Duke should be worrying about is how they could give up 90 POINTS TO MIAMI. If they can do that to an average ACC team, they will lose to some team before the Final Four. Duke is still good and deserve to be a top 15 team by the end of the season for sure, but I predict a trip to the sweet 16 and no more. Back to the Power Rankings. As always we are ranking based on which teams are most likely to win the championship.
This could be really, really helpful in the coming days as we try and figure out whether or not we have enough feedback in order to allow voting on teams to happen. I’d really like it to happen, but we’d need more than a few votes to make this worthwhile. Thanks for the feedback in advance.

All Star teams that should actually exist

Okay, I’m on a roll. Sledding in freezing weather is really cold. However, this is about the Pitt game tomorrow.
I’ll be back tomorrow to talk about the Pitt game against Depaul after the 4 pm start. However, this might be a really fun post.
Looking toward tomorrow’s game:
James Robinson: I firmly believe his starting spot should be removed; however, who the hell is going to replace him? There’s really nobody who could replace him, but he’s hurting the team more than helping it. Robinson, get out of the lineup.
Talib, you’re a beast. I guess our best offensive rebounder who doesn’t wear large oven mitts for gloves can stay on the floor.
Patterson – best 3 point shooter on a consistent basis – stay on the floor, play defense, and hit your threes
Adams – if it didn’t look like God forgot to give you hands, I’d love you. However, you will be the key to the rest of the season. Keep working, and we will beat Depaul and maybe Cuse.
Woodall – lead. that’s all you have to do.
I’d like to point out that PBA is a real thing; it’s actually not made up, and ESPN legitimately shows some events that are completely irrelevant to 99.9% of society, and probably 99% of the people who watch ESPN. I mean, really, who the hell watches ESPN for the bowling? If you want to watch bowling, you take your grandma to the lanes and count how many times she rolls the ball into the gutter. However, ESPN continues to show old men throw 16 pound balls down a greased up lane to hit tall, white poles. If I’m not mistaken, this sounds like a set up to an adult movie. They’d probably get more viewers, actually…Sunday afternoons not in October, November, December, or January should not involve any sort of bowling whatsoever. I’d almost rather see ESPN8 on normal television programming than PBA – sorry to say it, but it’s a proven fact that very few people under the age of 50 will watch old men throw bowling balls on a Sunday afternoon. Really.
