NBA title contenders?

Give me your top 5 title contenders in the NBA as the season is winding down, and why you think that way.  The Thunder are really starting to pick it up here towards the end of the season winning 6 in a row against quality teams such as Lakers, Clips, Heat and Bulls.  I will give you my top 5 after I get some responses from my followers.  And mine might surprise you!

Their are a number of teams that could make the run in the playoffs and have a legitimate chance at winning it all, but there is only one team that is feeling the playoff pressure to the max and that is the Miami Heat, ever since they had their big show and Lebron said "not 5, not 6, not 7" they have been under the spotlight and everyone is just waiting to see what happens.  I don't think they can afford not to win it all this year.  Its do or die in South Beach for my friends of the Heat.

Top 5 Busts of All-Time

Play a little game here, since Ryan Leaf's new story came out about him being busted with drugs and everything it sparked an idea in my head.... Give me your top 5 busts of all time.  It can be from any sport.  Just guys that were so highly touted and really never turned out to be anything in their respective sport.  This should be an interesting one and I am excited to see what my followers have to say.

Thanks for your time, You guys are the best!

National Championship Game

Ok followers, today is the day that college basketball fans have been waiting for all year.  Two goliaths in the sport going head to head to decide the champion.  Who does my followers got in this game and why? Kentucky seems like the favorite that everyone is picking, but can Kansas pull off the "upset" if you wanna call it that this late in the year.  Kentucky has at least 3 lottery picks and probably 7 NBA guys on their roster that will make an impact.  Davis, Kidd-Gilchrist, and Jones will all go very high in the draft, with Davis and MKG probably going 1-2.  Since when is that even possible to have the number 1 and 2 pick on your squad? Great job recruiting by John Calipari.  Then they have the likes of Lamb, Miller, Teague and Wiltjer who are all very good players in their own right. 

Then on the other side they got Robinson.  Thats about it for big superstars from Kansas.  Tyshawn Taylor can play like it at times but he has been inconsistent this whole year.  If he plays at his highest level, I don't see why Kansas cant beat Kentucky.  

Should be a very interesting game, and I cannot wait to watch it!  Any national championship that doesn't have Butler in the game will be much better!!
