    Supposedly 3 of the top 5 NBA draft picks for 2019 will be coming from Duke. They are ranked #1 overall in the tournament seedings, and when Zion and their team was fully healthy, they only lost one or two games all year. Even with Zion sidelined for a few games, they still went 29-5 and won their conf champ.

    So, gotta say, they HAVE to win this tournament. Otherwise their season is a failure.

    It won't effect any of the draft I don't think. But think about it, if at least 3 of their starters get drafted, this will not be the same team by any stretch next year. AND if you have 3 of the best players in all of college ball (arguably) how does anyone compete against that??

    Mike Krzyzewski did a wonderful job accruing this talent and making it all work. He stacked the deck. Now he has to deliver. It's really win it all or bust to me. Think there's any chance that's not true of this team?

    All that said... I don't think they will. Hard as that seems to imagine with all that talent, it's still a coaching and team effort, and its called March Madness for a reason.

    Made the prediction earlier, but I'll say again, I think they fall in the Elite 8 to Michigan State. Seems like a trendy pick, but I agree with the logic. Kinda hope I get proven wrong though.

    I think Michigan State will beat Duke in the Elite 8. Bracket breaker right there for like the 40% of people making brackets who picked Duke to win it all.

    For a wild card pick out of the West, I'd go with Texas Tech or even better Buffalo in the Final Four to play Mich St.

    As for Virginia, they need to redeem themselves after that embarrassing lost last year. Not sure they will. I took Tenn into the Final Four, to play North Carolina.

    Tar Heels vs Michigan State in the finals. Michigan State wins it all. Thumbs Up

    Lebron James just passed Michael Jordan on the NBA all-time scoring list. Does that automatically make anyone here think Lebron passes MJ now, legacy wise?

    MJ scored 32,292 points in his career.
    Lebron now has 32,3111 and counting, after scoring 31 pts in the game where he past Jordan's milestone.

    Worth noting, Kobe Bryant still has more at 33, 643. And Karl Malone is higher than all three of them at 36,928. But no one is going to catch #1 anytime soon: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at 38, 387. Lebron can certainly pass Kobe. And probably will. But 3rd place is his ceiling.

    The only other active player in the top 10 is Dirk Nowitzki, number 7 on the list behind Wilt Chamberlain. Dirk has 31, 364. Dirk is less than a hundred points behind Wilt, so he will likely pass him.

    How much stock can be put into this list alone? I think you can make the argument that Kareem was the best ever. But you don't hear too many ever saying that Malone was better than MJ, do you?

    Michael Jordan won 6 out of 6 NBA championships. Lebron is 3 of 8. But, it's worth taking into account that Lebron has been on weaker teams overall vs Jordan, for the most part. And Lebron has made 13 playoffs in a row. No one can take that feat away from him.

    It took Lebron over 100 games beyond what it took Michael to match his point tally. But Lebron took way less shot attempts over his career. Maybe it's more fair to compare their career stats, to this point. Here they are:

    MJ -
    Points per game: 30.1
    Rebounds: 6.2
    Assists: 5.3

    Lebron -
    Points per game: 27.1
    Rebounds: 8.6
    Assists: 8.0

    Does that illuminate things any better??? I don't know. I think its a great debate, who is better Lebron or MJ. They played in different times, on different teams, when the leagues were very different. Lebron is more of a passer and rebounder, where MJ was arguably more clutch and a better shooter.

    Does Lebron passing MJ on this list change anything for you? For me.. kinda does. It's just one more stat to consider. I don't think the debate can maybe ever be settled though, and probably not until all of Lebron's numbers are in. He still has some years left in him.

    Should be an interesting year for Tiger. I think it'll be a defining year for him, to decide if he should keep playing or not. If he makes progress or even wins a single PGA event, yeah man, keep playin. If not or he digresses, he should consider hanging it up - Nine expectations we have for Tiger Woods as the 2019 golf season heats up.

    Murray's not going to Arizona. At least he shouldn't if they were smart. Stick with Rosen and pile up picks and move down. I'd like to see the Bengals or the Dolphins move up to get him.

    I could see #4 happening. Give me Florida and TCU though in the finals as a real early prediction.

    Wonder how bad Menard feels about that? Wild to see that 38 car riding fully underneath that 10 car.
