    2011 NBA FINALS -- South Beach: My Top 10 Observations

    ​10. Ate dinner last night at Prime Italian on South Beach. In the midst of ridiculous opulence in the form of $20 valet parking and $100,000 cars, it was relatively affordable. $125 for a steak and a couple drinks. Thumbs up. 9.

As they head for Dallas and Friday night's Game 3, the Lakers are muttering things like "dispirited" and "trust issues." Surreal. 9 ... More >>

    UConn 53, Butler 41: My Top 10 Observer-ations

I for one am happy. Butler's will-over-skill routine might have been efficient, but it isn't a tad entertaining. ... More >>
