I don't mind admitting it: It's a slow morning. No really big compelling storyline -- wait, check that:
I realize now that I should have held Tuesday's SN column lead about the NBA at midseason until today, in preview of Kobe-LeBron tonight and in celebration of the Thunder already topping last season's total win mark (supporting my Durant-for-MVP argument).
But I already went there, so today's SN column is heavy on the items that come AFTER the lead:
*Reggie Bush vs. Shonn Greene
*Duke's loss to NC St vs. UNC's loss to Wake
*The irrelevancy of Kobe-LeBron tonight.
*A bit, naturally, about Tebow's SB ad.
*Joel Pineiro: The new John Lackey?
There's a lot more in there. Check it out here. More later.
