Random Observations:Why are people making such a big deal about Brittney Griner dunking? First of all, she's 6' 8" for fuck's sake. Second of all, congratulations on doing something that 90% of men's college players can do? They're not trying to frame this as a reason to watch women's basketball, right? If anything, it highlights in big, bold letters why people will never watch. Because apparently it's Top Ten Play Worthy when it happens, so they're emphasizing just how exceedingly rare it is.Remember when ESPN made Blake Griffin the 10th best player in the league? That seemed a little premature then and I think he's going backwards. There was a time when people actually said they wouldn't trade him for Dwight Howard. Meanwhile...Kevin Love...how high up on the rankings is he now? MIA/OKC would be an incredible Finals, I think. So much star power. I don't know what the deal is with this Miami team though. I don't understand how they have so many games where they just look flat. Their defense is like a big blitzing NFL team. High risk, high reward. They try to force turnovers, but give up a bunch of 3's. Their offense has really slowed down from the beginning of the season when they were supposed to be borrowing heavily from Oregon's blur offense.The Spurs sat Duncan the other day. The officially listed reason was "DNP - Old."
