I’ve always been a big believer that there should be an MVP of the Playoffs. Of course it’s a tough award to give out because: (1) there’s a guy called LeBron James and (2) it’s common sense to give the MVP to someone who takes their team to the Finals, but luckily I have the 2006-2007 Baron Davis to thank for helping [...]
It’s been a rough few months but I can now say that I am a proud fantasy owner of Deron Williams. In fact, I can even stomach watching him play now.
