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 5/1/2016

Another busy sports week with a number of huge playoff games in the NBA.  One team took control of an injury-laden Los Angeles Clippers and surged to the second round despite not having home field.  Led by Damian Lillard, the Portland Trailblazers won four straight games to move on an face the World Champion Golden State Warriors.  After losing high profile free agent LaMarcus Aldridge and a number of other key pieces from last year, Lillard stepped up his game.  In the final three contests against the Blazers, Lillard netted 62 points to lead the way.  In the opener against the Warriors, he scored 30 points in a losing effort.  Most impressive he was behind the line, going 15-35 for the four games during the week.  Lillard may have been snubbed for the All-Star team, but he's our Sportsman of the Week!
