About last night:

I was focused solely on the Michigan State-Kentucky game. Kentucky was the more talented team but you know who won: Michigan State, 78-74. Coach Cal and the Wildcats -- from now on Iíll refer to them as Bingo Long and the Traveling All-Stars -- played like an AAU team on Thursday morning in a July tournament in Vegas. Cal has become Leo Papile in a suit instead of sweats. I know Kentuckyís going to be good because Jay Bilas told me so -- about 200 TIMES. He failed to point out how the present one-and-down philosophy of Cal makes for bad basketball. In the end, team play won and thatís a victory for the sport of basketball.

THIS IS AN ANTI-TANKING ZONE: Any talk of the Celtics (or any other team) sacrificing an entire season while their fans pay astronomical amounts for tickets and cable TV wonít be tolerated around here. Whatís the point of doing it? So they can draft someone like Jerome Randle of Kentucky? He had 27 points and 13 rebounds against Michigan State. He was tremendous, a beast in the paint. But what is he really? Al Jefferson? Maybe? Is that worth sacrificing an entire season? I know Brad Stevens agrees with me. I think he does anyway.
