No, the Hoosiers playing for the NCAA Championship tonight is not an April fools joke. The NBA will take a seat tonight as the college kids take center stage for the National Championship game. So sit back, order some wings, and watch one of the best college basketball players of our time finish his career.Juan Dixon is the man. In a playoff atmosphere, the Lakers showed yesterday that they are still the squad to beat. Sick of the fouls, sick of the "Hack-a-Shaq" strategy, and sick of the overly physical play, the Big Aristotle threw the Spurs around like rag dolls. Playing as intense as he has played all season, Shaq made his presence felt both offensively and defensively. He topped off his performance with a game winning block on Tim Duncan, who cried like a toddler after the game. Fool. You think the Celtics were chomping at the bit to get back on the court after the drubbing they took by the Mavs Friday night? Paul Pierce and Co. absolutely handed it to the injury-depleted Bucks with a relentless attack that included a disgusting follow up jam by Wultah Mickarty, Boston's favorite Irishman. How about the SportsCenter crew getting on the subject of Jay-Z? Dickie V, with all of his normal exuberance, said, "I love Jay-Z." In what was one of the top 3 sequences of the season, Detroit's Ben Wallace punched a Nugget shot, Jon Barry saved it from going out of bounds with a stylish behind the back pass to Damon Jones who unselfishly passed it on to Michael Curry for the dunk. Detroit makes the most of its limited roster by playing some of the best team ball in the League. Yes the East is Least, but the Pistons are underrated.

The Dee Brown comeback party is officially over. Mike Miller was activated from the IR and the man who brought us the Pumps hangs em up again. Chris Webber showed us once again why he is much, much better than us. He not only dominated the game in the Kings victory over Atlanta, but he also strutted out of Atlanta with our girl, his girl friend, Tyra Banks. The Magic took down the Knicks, but the talk in NYC is that Big Pat Ewing will sit it down for good at the end of this season. This speculation was hyped up after Ewing received his first DNP-CD last week against the Pacers. Ewing played some active and aggressive minutes against the Knicks that prompted Knick coach Don Chaney to say "I guess he (Ewing) wanted to prove to everybody that he isn't dead yet." Daryl Armstrong is the captain of the All Heart Squad. DA got knocked out by Kurt Thomas and still came back into the game in the 4th to hit a huge shot. We saw MJ's 4th quarter, we saw his scoring spurt and we saw the flashes of greatness. We also saw the first three quarters, we saw the depleted speed, we saw the pain on the face, and sadly, we saw the age. We don't doubt the Man, but we know the Man is having doubts. Props to the UConn women. . Insanity. Not Vincanity. The Raptors won their fifth straight without their star, beating the AI-less Sixers Makes you wonder, doesn't it? In one of the coolest things we've seen, new Razorbacks Head Coach Stan Heath walked into the Coaches Luncheon in Atlanta on Saturday and was immediately pulled aside by John Thompson. Thompson took Heath into a corner and gave a professor type talk to the new Coach, who listened to every word. We're out like the NBA April Fool's Schedule.
