They’ve won 8 straight against pretty good teams. What else can I say. I told ya’ll things would shake back into place as soon as people began to jump of Black Pharaoh’s bandwagon. KG is the glue and no, he ain’t crazy like it. His will is something you just have to see, hear and yeah…feel. His is not losing. Detroit and Lakers upcoming.
2. Cleveland Cavaliers 35-8 5-1 week

I think we were all in agreement that Mo Williams is the real deal. His line last night was sickdiculous: 43 LBJ’s, 11 Lil Stevies and 8 Big Bens. That’s crazy considering his boy recorded his 20th triple double and looked second fiddle. Whoever is picking the East reserves has a serious conundrum because out of Devin Harris, Jameer Nelson and Mo…who is best? Seriously and real rap? Alley I is fourth right now and dude is starting. Yeah Philly baby. Anyway, the Cavs have run their home record to 21-0. Ain’t no one done that since my man GP was hatin’ 96. Conceivably would be up top if it wasn’t for that Jack Nicholson blowout.
3. Los Angeles Lakers 35-9 3-1 week

Remember this is for the week. Last night Kobe Bryant fouled out for the first time this year (put up 38 in the loss) and the Lakers lost in doube O.T. to Charlotte. I know it had to kill him to be on the bench and watch his mates screw it up as if he was Magic or Larry coaching. In other words, no one does it better than you. Boston is coming up (4 cupcakes beforehand) and time will tell if this team can handle the whole weight and play some defense in ya face.

Orlando was rollin’ until Boston and Miami gave it to them this week. I just don’t know about this squad. Dwight Howard is eatin’ the big piece of chicken every night, but I’m just not peace with their defensive intensity. Cleveland Thursday in a game that will be too late in settling who will back up Iverson at the one in Phoenix.
5. New Orleans Hornets 27-14 5-2 week

Until the Spurs beat the Hornets, they aren’t falling off this list. Chris Paul seems as if he’s taking his game to another level even with his teammates beset by injury. When is the quad doub coming with steals? I think he has a shot at doing the unimaginable. There’s no longer a discussion who the best point guard in the league is. They gave it to my boys at home last night and have GS sandwiched around two bangers…Denver and San Antonio. Two wins in those games and no more hatin’. DWest for life Co Co! LOL
