I realize I may be one of the three people in the Midwest who cares about the NBA finals. But old loyalties die hard. Seeing Kansas Jayhawk star Paul Pierce kill the Lakers and make Kobe Bryant look like a petulant child is surprisingly good for my heart. Dime notes:
Bryant struggled with his shot in Boston. He scored 54 points in the two games, but he had 49 field-goal attempts. By comparison, Paul Pierce had 50 points while attempting only 26 shots.Check the Paul Pierce action from game two.
In other news, the KC Star reports that Mario Chalmers' NBA draft stock is rising and he's all but gone. No real surprise there, but it means that Sherron Collins and Cole Aldrich will have to be The Men for the Kansas Jayhawks this fall. Actually, with the recruiting class KU has coming in, I'm not too worried. Here's hoping that Chalmers gets drafted midway through the first round and doesn't slip.
