Other Peoples Work

  • NBA Most Overrated as Written by Charley Rosen at Foxsports.com

In this article, Rosen argues that KG, CP3, and Chris Bosh – and others – are overrated.  Rosen’s article has a few legit points, but he has no real proof to his argument.  What is his standard?  

In the article Rosen claims that KG is not clutch and does not come through in important games.  He also states that CP3 does not play defense and is very ineffective in half court offense out side of a pick and roll. 

Anyway.  Take a read.    

  • Sporting News:  Top 50 Coach’s of All-Time

“Headlining the new issue of Sporting News Magazine: our list of sports’ 50 greatest coaches of all time, as selected by a panel of 118 Hall of Famers, championship coaches and other experts.”

This is a very interesting article by Jeff D’Alessio which lists coaches from all the major sports – i.e. NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, and college basketball and football.

Here is the Top-11 from the list, they only question I have.  Don Shula?  Really?  

1. John Wooden, college basketball

2. Vince Lombardi, NFL
3. Bear Bryant, college football
4. Phil Jackson, NBA
5. Don Shula, NFL
6. Red Auerbach, NBA
7. Scotty Bowman, NHL
8. Dean Smith, college basketball
9. Casey Stengel, MLB
10. Knute Rockne, college football
11. Pat Summitt, women’s college basketball

  • All-Metrodome Team

Tyler Mason, from MLB.com, put together an 18 man team of the best players that played in the Metrodome starting in 1982.  It mostly players from the 1987 ’91 Championship Teams, Paul Molter and Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau and Joe Nathan.   Kirby Puckett

I am good with 98% of the list.  Gladden is questionable when you look at Shane Mack.  But I am not sure where Morneau fits on the team, but he does deserve it – AL MVP. 

Paul Molitorat DH is the biggest question mark.  He had one great season in 1996 and then fell off quickly.   But I am not sure there is a better choice available than Molitor.

  •  Chili Davis 1991-1992
  •  Paul Molitor 1996-1998
  •  David Ortiz 1997-2002
  •  Roy Smalley 1982 & 1985-1987
  •  Dave Winfield 1993-1994
  • Here is the complete ballot.

    PS – Brett Favre = Still Retired.
