The ABCs of the NBA

With six you get eggrolls but in the NBA it's as simple as 1,2,3. You need 3 top level stars to win in today's NBA. Boston goes with Garnett, Pierce, and Allen. While the Lakers come with Kobe, Odom, and Gasol.

L.A. was just a Western conference outcast until the Feb trade brought the third leg to their stool. San Antonio has it. Detroit has it, but appears to be losing it. Unless you've got Shaq in his prime teamed with a Kobe level player, and I've checked all the scouting reports down to sixth grade level...there are no Shaqs anywhere.

So you'd better go with the ABCs. Do the Heat need to go to school to learn how to read, write and draft? You've got your A with Wade. You've got your C in Marion. So you need your B in Beasley. Any of you night owls who were watching K-State playing this year saw a kid playing 1 on 3 in one of the toughest conferences in the country and putting up huge numbers.

So what if he likes to laugh. Remember winning is suppose to be fun. So take your B and add up those 1,2,3s and get back into the playoffs. Simple.

The concept of three stars is definitely true. The Heat championship team didn't have a clear C, but I guess Antoine Walker was sort of it?

Regardless, I'd like Derrick Rose as the B, or maybe a Marion trade for Elton Brand.

I know, if untimely "laughing" is the extent of his "attitude" and "off the court" issues, I'll take him in a heartbeat.
