    You would have never known, from the way he played in Los Angeles, that Howard had this in him. Most nights in the purple-and-gold, this self-proclaimed “superman” phoned it in. Now we’re expected to take notice of these single-game stats. Sorry pal, you’re getting paid well enough for us to expect this stuff every night, not just when the mood strikes.

    #1) Howard should never leave Charlotte, big market teams are too much for him.
    #2) Either Loyola of Chicago or Kansas State will be in the Final Four, just let that sink in for a moment. K-State was predicted to finish 8th in the Big 12 this season.
    #4) Geeat hire! What happened to Ollie? I remembered the Lakers were thinking about hiring him after they won the National Championship.
    #6) Looks like Darnold will be a Brown, he is the only quarterback the Giants are considering at #2.

    #3 Yea and his receivers names were probably Jose Cuervo, Jack Daniels, Evan Williams, Don Julio, Johnnie Walker and Jim Beam right. Oh no wait, he met them after the tryout.
