Is it really a Style Points post without Steph Curry and Kanye West? Didn’t think so.
Between the two, I don’t even know who is having the better year. Steph Curry is in the running for the coveted MVP trophy while leading his team to homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs. And Kanye is basically running the Internet with his sneakers, music, and dance moves — with a little help from his lady, Kim. I’m just waiting for these two to take a stab at each other’s professions. I need Kanye to design some Warriors’ jerseys and Steph Curry to make another rap video with wifey.
Surprisingly enough, there are other people that are having fantastic months as well. On March 11, LaMarcus Aldridge helped the Blazers beat their Western Conference foes the Houston Rockets by dropping 26 points and 14 rebounds. It is still only a regular season win, but the game had a playoff-type atmosphere. Anybody remember this shot? It would be awesome to see another Blazers/Rockets playoff series.
As for everyone’s favorite East squad, whose team is it really? If I am coach Blatt, I’m putting the ball in Kyrie’s hands to take the last-second shot. Dead serious. As good as LeBron James is, I think I might trust Ky more. Watching ‘Bron miss two free throws, in overtime, against the Rockets, down one with under five seconds left killed my hope. I know that is extreme, but Kyrie is my guy. The kid has so much potential, just like his sneaker line with Nike.
We all love alley-oops. We especially love Lob City alley-oops between Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan. The jaw-dropping oops we have seen between these two have been incredible. This one is no different. DeAndre is a scary, scary dude and is playing out of his mind this season. I can’t wait to see if this team can make the NBA Finals.
