Power 5

After a long break, it's back:

1)MANU--In one year he won the Olympic Gold and an NBA Title. If he keeps shooting like he did in game 7 (8-13) he could be winning an FBL title too.
2)THAD--With the NBA's new bargaining agreement, OSU gets that much closer to an amazing recruiting class (Oden is just teasing Wake Forest).
3)LBJ--it's bad enough that yet another athlete thinks they should make personel decissions, but you forgot to name your allstar center as player you'd like to see your team sign!!!!! oops.
4)STEELERS FANS--I know it's probably sacrilege, but Cope's retirement just made it even easier to be a Steelers fan (like that was ever a difficult thing). I just never got the big deal about that guy.
5)HEIN--even though she may over value Tim Duncan, it's still pretty cool to hear a graduate from your youth group's take on sports.

    I guess you have to have lived in or near Pittsburgh to realize what Myron Cope means to the city and the team. It's not about his announcing, because everyone knows that he hasn't been the greatest one of those in a long time, but it's about his passion for the team and all that he did in the city. You couldn't watch a 1/2 hour of television without seeing his face or hearing his voice on a commercial and he was a symbol of the city's passion for the Steelers. That's what made him an icon in the city and his quarkiness was something the city loved because of it.

    Lebron has been campaigning to keep Zydrunas Ilgauskas on the team for about four months now.

    He's been quoted repeatedly in the papers, during games, on TV, and radio about wanting to keep Z, talking with ownership about it, and telling reporters.

    Lebron was probably just asked about free agency, and he still views Ilgauskas as his teammate. It's common knowledge he loves Z and doesn't want to see him leave.

    Well, I guess it's not that common. =)

    I hear the Knicks will draft Channing Frye with the #8 pick.
