Player of the D.A.Y.

By Sam Rubenstein

I brought my lunch to work today, so I’m getting this done nice and early. Waiting on a few things to come in, especially a story about the road to the Final 4. Kobe is in the running for Player of the D.A.Y. once again, and I could pull a second rule amendment in the name of justice to give him today’s award for Friday night. But, there was another big time performance. Kobe’s 50 on Friday night and 43 and 9 last night were impressive, even amazing as always.

Mike Bibby is sliding in to take the Player of the D.A.Y. trophy from him. With the latest Ron Artest distraction swirling in the air – this one being early retirement of course – Bibby set a franchise record by hitting 9 of his 12 attempted threes on his way to 37 points. This was against Phoenix, with Steve Nash going for just 18 and 9 with 7 turnovers. The NBA spotlight is squarely on Kobe for good reason these days, but I’m trying to diversify a little bit here.

In other NBA news, this is a great day for me. Start is one of my favorite blogs, and today it is basketball-related, so I get to send our readers over there. Warren Buffet and LeBron James re-kindled their friendship. Read about it here.

By the way, according to the category list on the left of the site, this is my 500th post. I am going to have a cupcake.

LATE UPDATE: This is because Deadspin had this story, which is mind blowing to me. A job posting for an interesting opportunity at the Univeristy of Michigan. Polish up your resume and you can be head coach. Wow.
