  • Maybe a "SadMelo" Tumblr page wouldn't be so premature: (h/t: "Snottie Drippen")

  • I found it difficult to root against the Celtics on Monday. Is that weird? Yeah, I'm a terrible Bulls fan. Maybe, I hate the Knicks more than I love the Bulls, but a bit less than I love the Celtics. Oh well, I loved Kevin Garnett dunkin' all over Ronny Turiaf:

  • Dwight Howard seems he should be the MVP, though he won't win it, as Kelly Dwyer noted in recapping Monday's games: (h/t: Evan Dunlap; sorry, KD, I'm burned out on recaps by the time yours are posted.)

    "Orlando's strength on the interior was too much. Brandon Bass had his moments, Ryan Anderson had 12 and five rebounds in just 19 minutes, but let's get real, here. All the 'here would they be without him?'crap you hear about Derrick Rose? It's meant for Dwight Howard. Because without this man's dominant 28-point, 14-rebound, four-block, four-steal night, Orlando loses by 25 to the freakin' Cavaliers. Derrick Rose may lead my favorite team to a championship this year, but I'm not daft enough to overlook Howard's MVP season."

    Agreed.

  • Rudy Gay, done. He needs shoulder surgery. I love this Grizzlies team and it's a damn shame that in, what'll probably be Zach Randolph's last year there and maybe Marc Gasol's, everything stacking up against them making a playoff run. The Hawks, 76ers, and Knicks will give the top East teams hell in the first round of the playoffs -- I won't deny -- but the Grizzlies would be a #5 seed in the East in any of its divisions.

    Like I said, a damn shame. As frustrating as they are at many times, Memphis has been one of more fun teams to watch all season.
