Slow times

The NBA builds towards the playoffs, and Bulls are looking good, but the Pacers are out. It looks like they've got some rebuilding to do. One helpful piece of advice: Trade Jermaine O'Neal. He's a fine player, but he's just not there in the fourth quarter, and he's got the most trade value. If you can drop Troy Murphy along with him, all the better. And since it looks like the Pacers will keep their lottery pick (for now), I suggest grabbing Mike Conley, if he's available. Yeah, you'll need a year to get him developed, but this would be your point guard of the future, if he's available.

College ball news is sorta slow, and on the IU front it looks like DJ White will return (smart) but maybe Eli Holman isn't getting the scores to be eligible next year? That'll hurt us if that's true, we need that second shot-blocker off the bench.

My way-too-early top NCAA Men's Top 50 is shaping up, but I'm waiting for the end of the month for the who's-in and who's-out of the draft to shake out before posting.

In addition to John Gasaway hanging up his Big Ten Wonk guns, shrewd Marquette/Wisconsin observer Chris West has also moved on from blogging, leaving the Big Ten two voices poorer. You'll be missed, guys!

Major League Soccer has started playing, but to be honest I'm not going to be that geeked to watch anything but the highlights until Becks suits up for LA this summer. I am really looking forward to see how that plays.
