I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.

Sportsman of the Week Ending 1/25/2015

It's not often and NBA scoring record of any sort is broken, but our Sportsman of the Week did it.  Klay Thompson of the dominant Golden State Warriors put on a display that the likes of Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Kobe Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain, or LeBron James has never done.  That is score 37 points.  In a quarter.  The average NBA team scores less than 30 points per quarter.  But on Friday, Thompson was a perfect 13-13 from the field, including nine three pointers in the third quarter against the Sacramento Kings.  Nine, that's one every 80 seconds.  In a quarter.  Thompson is a big reason the Warriors are 36-6 and over five games ahead of the next best team in the field.  And an amazing Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
