This nation is obsessed with rankings. Who is best? Who is number one? Who should be number one? So it should not come as a shock that there are a lot of people who have decided that now is a good time to conjure up a Micheal Jordan vs. LeBron James debate.
So far the reviews on Howard's commitment to that work have not been stellar. It doesn't really matter if that's my opinion, but it does matter if it is Kobe Bryant's opinion.
Greg Oden will face an uphill battle in his return to the NBA. If he is able to return to full strength, like Amar'e Stoudemire and Jason Kidd, he provides a high rate of return for the team that assumes the risk of signing such a chronically injured player.
Rest assured, the Wizards are not suddenly some juggernaut. Their 13-35 record puts them in second to last place in the Eastern Conference and that unimaginable start to the season basically ruined any playoff hopes they may have had.
The ABL is the first professional basketball league in the United States to play FIBA rules with the aim of placing players on teams of international professional leagues. And there is no shortage of talent in the new league.

Allen Iverson is an all-time great -- but can he actually get on an NBA roster and help a team win ball games, and perhaps that elusive NBA championship?
The lockout is in the rear view. That's official. That's a fact. Done. Finee. Kaput. You can bet your Tuuka Rask on it.
In Boston's double overtime win against the defending champion Heat, the Celtics looked like they may be a classic example of addition by subtraction.
There are 38 games remaining in the regular season and the Celtics will need to play better basketball without Rajon Rondo than they were playing with the All-Star point guard. That's not going to be easy.
As the February 21st trade deadline approaches, the Lakers must make these decisions very quickly; for if they do not, they put the five to ten year fate of the franchise in jeopardy.
So far the Lakers' season is nothing more than a failure, a bust, a sham in the eyes of every Los Angeles fan that hasn't jumped on the Clippers bandwagon by now.
People value professional athletes based off of winning and their respect for the game that gets them paid. Robert Griffin III has shown his understanding of that, whereas Royce White has simply looked like an immature kid in a grown man's world.
