I'm going to take this opportunity to pay homage to the men who are doing the winning right now and will be the 2 pillars of our fate this year. 1) Sheed again! This is how we all should want him to play. Wouldn't you think against Shaq and Amare, it would make sense for him to "spread the floor" with 3-pointers? NO, because he is so brilliant in the post that we are best when he commits to it. I can relate to Sheed myself, cause I am a big man who would rather be lazy and shoot 3's all day, but I'm not getting paid... in fact I am actually paying monthly for that privilage. Anyways, Sheed gets MVP by me. 2) Chauncey. +39 in 30 minutes??!!?? Seriously? That has to be the best of the year on our team. When y'all are analyzing Chauncey's defense, make sure you take into account the realities that no guards can ever post him up, that when he is caught guarding a forward, he holds his ground, and that he hardly ever turns the ball over, which means that the other team doesn't get easy baskets on the break. When you take those things into account, it makes sense that he is statistically one of our best defenders (tied for 2nd with Sheed and Amir behind Afflalo). This is a huge reason why he has THE best +/- per minute in the NBA and just overtook Paul Pierce for the best overall cumulative +/- as well. If you ever recommended the Joe D not resign him, hit yourself over the head with your keyboard.
