Who am I?

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 3/15/2015

Sometimes a single performance justifies honors.  We saw that this week, with the Cleveland Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving.  The second year phenom put his team on his back to defeat the reigning NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs in spectacular fashion.  On Thursday, the fourth year superstar from Duke scored 57 points (highest in the league this year) with an incredible 20-32 from the field and 7-7 from beyond the arc (routine 10-10 from the free throw line).  Including a clutch 3 pointer at the buzzer to send it to overtime.  The other two games of the week, he chipped in 22 and 33 points; for the latter he was 12-15 from the field, 5-6 from beyond the arc (meaning 12-13 during the two game stretch).  The Cavs went 3-0 for the week, all on the road.  Playing in LeBron's shadow, he's quickly becoming the secret weapon for a deep Cavaliers playoff run.
