Cramming code into the sports world - deep inside a defunct power plant...

- Is the Telfair trade a vote of confidence in Jarrett Jack - my boy from Tech - or does it signal that Marcus Williams is the sure pick for the Blazers?
- Tyrus Thomas: O-ver-ra-ted. A single, sparkling performance against Duke/Sheldon, but his last six games: 9,9,7,9,21,5. This "freaky" athlete managed to free himself up for 4,4,4,5,14,4 shots respectively.
- How wormy is Dick Vitale? Admittedly, he's fun to have in the analyst's chair at Chapel Hill or Durham for Big Monday, but he's so friggin' predictable on draft day, you can fill in the mad lib sheet: shit on the internationals, fellate the four-year guys and anyone who had a stellar single performance in March, and gesticulate wildly over anyone he classifies a "winner" - though he never seems to articulate exactly...or even approximately what that means.
