Thursday 04/17 A.M. Quickie:
NBA Playoffs, MLB, Kevin Love, More

The NBA better hope for Lakers-Celtics in the Finals to be the outcome of this playoffs season.

(And that's kind of pathetic, don't you think?)

That's the gist of the lead item of my Sporting News column this morning.

Among other topics:

I give Al Horford NBA Rookie of the Year ahead of Kevin Durant (go ahead and act surprised)...

I praise Brandon Webb and bury Barry Zito...

I salute the Penguins...

I feel simultaneously good and bad about Kevin Love's decision to turn pro...

I question Mitch Mustain's decision-making ability...

I renew my offer to meet with Barack Obama...

Bonus Post on the Obama thing coming later today, btw.

I'm ok for the most part with your NBA award picks, execept for two.

Andrew Bynum as the Most Improved Player? How can you justify giving this or any award to a player who missed almost 50 games?

Josh Smith as Defensive POY? I'd love to hear your thought process behind that pick. I'm pretty sure you made it just to piss off Boston fans. You can debate whether or not KG is the MVP, but there's no debate he is the Defensive POY.

Barack Obama is an elitist.

Playoffs in the west look so brutal this year, is it wrong of me to think that nobody can win the conference?
