St. John’s freshman star may be ready to head on up to the NBA, a bittersweet proclamation

Keywords: moe harkless, nba draft, st johns, steve lavin, nets

Recently news has broken that Moe Harkless of the St. John’s Red Storm may be on his way to entering the NBA Draft. As someone who has covered Harkless all season, I can say for sure that he is ready to go. But that certainly does not mean I want him to go. St. John’s had a bit of a rough season this year, and if not for Harkless it could have been even worse. I pulled a couple of quotes from the twitter of head coach Steve Lavin, I’ll throw my two cents on what I think of them but I will let you be the judge first.

 

“Associated with college hoops for 25 years as assistant, head coach + broadcaster. If Mo chooses to pursue HIS DREAM it gives us traction!”

 

“Would luv to have Mo back but returning nucleus combined with our soon to be incoming 2012 class will position Johnnies for return to NCAA!!”

 

“Regardless of Moe’s ultimate decision he is a very thoughtful and intelligent person with a BRIGHT future in basketball.”

These quotes to me seem to indicate that coach Lavin believes Harkless is more than likely to enter the draft. Either way I think Harkless will be fine. Obviously another year in college can only help to polish his game, but as someone who watched him first hand, I can say he does have the talent to be a great NBA player. Going back to the tweets from Steve Lavin, I do think Moe is going to test the waters of the draft, where some believe he may head to the Nets. I have mentioned before that it would be a wise marketing move for the soon to be Brooklyn Nets to have a hometown kid in their first season in a new city. From a selfish perspective though I certainly hope Moe gives St. John’s one more go.

The Los Angeles Lakers win the Steve Nash sweepstakes

Keywords: steve nash, lakers

 

While the Knicks and Raptors were arguing about Landry Fields, the Los Angeles Lakers snuck up and grabbed Steve Nash. Now this means quite a number of things. The Lakers, already a top tier team in the west, now become even more of a title contender. This also means they may have lost interest in trading for Dwight Howard, as they only have so much money to go around. But all this is trivial to Knicks fans, there is a lot more important stuff going on in the Atlantic time zone.

 

 

Steve Nash, a two time MVP, a guy that Amare Stoudemire had his best years with, a player that really could have helped the Knicks. That said I am glad the Knicks stood their ground and opted against trading Iman Shumpert. Shump is a future all defensive team point guard. The kid has a ton of talent, and when you are good at defense, you can only get better. Unlike offense, defense doesn’t come in streaks, if you have the effort then you can only get better. And Shump will certainly continue to improve.

Even at a the ripe age of 6 kids are still learning to hate the Miami Heat

Apparently this kids mother thought it would be funny to film her kid crying after the Heat beat the Thunder in game 3. She was right, it was hysterical. My favorite part is when the kids mother tells him the series isn’t over yet. Even at the age of 20 I still start crying when the Rangers lose one game in the beginning of the season, at least this kid has an excuse.

(I had to take down the original video I had up because it was causing all sorts of freaky stuff on my site, here is a video that covers the same stuff)

 

It’s extremely scary to think of all these chemicals we are putting into our system on a daily basis!  No wonder the cancer rate is where it is today. All of these products could easily be made without these terrible chemicals, so why don’t they get on that?  In fact, I would be willing to pay more money for a product without all that garbage in it if it meant it was safer.
