    Default Sekou's Half-Season Awards

    [web]http://www.indystar.com/articles/0/119414-6470-039.html[/web]

    What was most interesting to me was his 1st All-NBA team.

    I like it. Obviously because it has JO in it, but also it gets 3 deserving big men in there without snubbing one of them because Shaq is SUPPOSED to be the best.

    Most overrated player

    Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Portland

    Abdur-Rahim, traded late Monday by Atlanta, is putting up All-Star numbers. Of course, he had been playing on an awful team. Has there ever been a player this good who did so little to lift the play of those around him?
    Not since Clark Kellogg, who couldn't even lift Herb Williams to do better than 9-9 in the Big Ten, yet the Pacers drafted them both.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Least improved player

    Yao Ming, Houston

    No offense to the billions (OK, millions) of Chinese fans who voted this guy into the All-Star game as a starter, but wasn't Yao supposed to become the dominant heir apparent to Shaquille O'Neal's oversized throne this season? He's had some moments, but too often he resembles the robotic, lead-footed giant who occupied the same jersey during an uneven rookie season.
    Come on, how about a little accuracy? Last I heard, Shaq won the internet vote, but lost the paper vote that was only available to US and Canadian fans by a landslide!
