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 5/5/2024


The NBA Playoffs first round entered its climax with a big Game 7 for the Cleveland Cavaliers trying to make it to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since a 33-year-old LeBron James was their leading scorer six years ago.  Enter a new leader.  Donovan Mitchell.  He took over the series with an amazing 39 points in the last three games, throw in 19 rebounds and 11 assists in those games and everything went through him.  When they needed him in Games 5 and 7 to edge the Orlando Magic in seven games.  He was 33-63 from the field in Games 6 and 7, 27-33 from the line.  Just points one way or another.  The Cavs get the NBAs best regular season team the Boston Celtics in the second round, and Mitchell may just will them to victory.
