Michael Jordan is bar none to me that best to ever play the game of basketball, though would say that Bill Russell is still a personal hero and sometimes wonder what would happen if those two met in their prime.
Sorry, that is just my brain imagining things that it would like to happen. MJ the owner has been less of a success to say the least, and his squad got embarrassed thoroughly by Carmelo Anthony’s 62 point game. That eclipsed the highest point total of the season set recently by Kevin Durant, and so let the fireworks begin between the two forwards. MJ’s crew will have similar difficulty tonight especially with Kemba Walker out and would expect another loss here.

Joakim Noah should have a field day in this one, so would expect him to get a lot of hustle points off of running the floor hard as well as fighting for rebounds. My regular readers know that I consider Tom Thibodeau to be the best regular season head coach in the league and he will get this group to highly overachieve and think they will cover the spread (-1.5) in this one. Don’t take it personal MJ; your old team and city still love you and there is a statue to prove it.
