I could start by telling you a very interesting story about someone trying to register my domain name in a bunch of foreign countries, but that is not why you are here.
It is, however, the reason the time stamp does not say 12:00 as it does every other Sunday.
Furthermore, if you are looking for the name Chris Johnson on this list just because the fans in Minnesota chanted “M-V-P” at him as he made his 10-day contract debut Saturday night in a win over the Houston Rockets, we are sorry to disappoint you. We need a larger body of work than 12 minutes. But it’s still a good story.
Around here, if you score 52 points in a signature win, and you are among the All-Star starters, and you have been doing stuff like this for the entire season …
Well, that’ll allow for us to keep you in the spot you held last week. So congrats to Kevin Durant for retaining the No. 1 ranking. As for Chris Johnson, keep it up for a few weeks, kid, and we’ll keep a close eye on you.
In the big picture, as we’ve been saying for three weeks now, this is looking more and more like it is shaping up to be a three-man race. Carmelo Anthony has a chance to make it a four-man race, but he is on the outside looking in as the Knicks continue to somewhat sputter along following their great start to the season.
The again, it is a long season. And Miami has been sputtering, too. Melo’s success in this race is directly proportional to the Heat’s lack of success. More on that below.
On to the ranks …
