Really like this Oklahoma City team and what they're capable of in the immediate future. Really disappointed in Russell Westbrook walking off the court after the season ending loss to Dallas last night without offering his congrats to the Mavs. I know he's a young guy and it was a frustrating defeat, but it showed the immaturity some pointed out during these playoffs. Everyone else including superstud Kevin Durant hung around after the final gun to go through the sportsman like motions. That team has learned a difficult lesson. At crunch time they struggled to get quality looks. They were solid in this area in round one against the Nuggets and in the West Semi's versus Memphis, but that's the deal. As you work your way through the post season you have to continue to upgrade because the opponent gets better and better. Great for Dirk and the Mavericks, in particular Shawn Marion. This 11 year vet is a 4 time all star who as recently as 2009 earned just over 17 million a season. His willingness to accept a lesser role and focus on defense shows the ultimate professional. What a high character guy. Then last night with Nowitzki scoring a very human 26 and Jason Kidd way off, Marion exploded for 26 to go with 8 boards and 3 blocks. Sweet!
Lot to cover on today's programs. More trouble in Columbus for soon to be ex-Buckeye coach Jim Tressel, a damaging injury to deal with for the reigning World Series champs, and at 4:30 a talk with Chip Kelley. He's heading up a big time benefit for the widow and daughters of Officer Chris Kilcullen. We'll have the details and talk some Duck football. Visit for details on the football page. The Bowling Event is set for Emerald Lanes on Saturday, June 4th at 11am.
