SORT BY Relevancy
For this another episode of my show. I have a special guest who goes by the name of Yancy Deron who is a rapper who is currently working on one of the hottest music projects of the summer, his upcoming mixtape, and its track listing is set in place to be the soundtrack to a great summer in Southern California.
If you visit SheridanHoops.com with any regularity, then you know we recently wrote a piece listing the NBA's top 10 point guards.
The list includes some relative newbies such as John Wall and Kyrie Irving. It also does not include Deron Williams and Derrick Rose, who have not done enough of late to merit inclusion among the best players at arguably the most talented position in the league.
The folks at Rip City Radio 620 in Portland visit the site with some regularity, because they asked author Chris Bernucca to go on the air and discuss his No. 4 selection - Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers.
Lillard has the least experience of any of the top 10. But he has crammed an awful lot onto his resume in just two years - a Rookie of the Year award, an All-Star berth, a playoff series win capped by his dagger 3-pointer at the buzzer. And just about anyone with a brain in their skull believes Lillard is going to get better.
On Tuesday afternoon, Bernucca appeared on the Wheels at Work show with Blazers radio play by play man Brian Wheeler and discussed the recent evolution of the NBA point guard from a passer to a scorer, why Rose and Williams didn't make the cut, and the attributes of Lillard, who is described as "easy to like."

Prior to joining the Conservancy, Deron worked for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. At the agency, he launched a communication and education program to encourage citizens to conserve water during an historic drought, served on the leadership team for the statewide water management plan guiding the development of ten regional water plans, and directed a national school improvement program that provided professional learning experiences, funding and technical support for a network of K-12 educators.

CKY got its start when Deron Miller and Jess Margera got together and formed the band Foreign Objects back in 1994. Two years later, they started oiL with their UPS co-worker Ryan Bruni and began laying tracks that would eventually turn into CKY tracks. Chad Ginsburg joined as a guitarist and that's when CKY began to stabilize as a band. Popularity for the band's music began to take hold when their music was used by Jess' brother Bam Margera in the CKY videos. Bam Margera has also directed a number of CKY's music videos. CKY's music has been used in Jackass: The Movie, Viva La Bam, as well as a number of video games including Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, Jackass: The Game, and Backyard Wrestling among others. The bands fans are loyal to say the least. Known as the "Alliance" they became infamous when their (the Alliance's) logo was used on the CKY album "An Answer Can Be Found"
The fellas discuss the NBA Playoffs as the Wild Wild West has lived up to the hype. We continue last week's conversation about Anthony Davis – who is playing lights out in the postseason despite the fact that the Splash Brothers are showing why they are the best back-court in the league. Ed will complain about Deron Williams – whose heart pumps Kool-Aid, give props to the addition of Shump, JR, Timofey Mozgov as the Cavs roll in the playoffs, and gush about the greatness of the San Antonio Spurs while eating a bowl of crow after the Houston Rockets dominant performance thus far in the playoffs.
Fuz will certainly bring up the Washington Capitals-New York Islanders series, with the Caps now taking a 3-2 advantage. Given time, the guys will also talk about Andre Ward's long-awaited return to the ring, early impressions of the baseball season and a rant about the Montreal Impact almost getting mugged by Club America.

Thats right the 82 game regular season in the NBA has finally come to an end. The Celtics started this season as a team that was destined for the NBA lottery. The chances for that destiny being achieved went up when Danny Ainge traded Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks. Everyone thought for sure this teams destiny was a lock once Ainge traded Jeff Green. The fan's starting talking about going into tank mode for the 2nd season in a row. But instead the Celtics opted to fight in what was a weak Eastern Conference and show the rest of the NBA that they are not far from being able to compete with the NBA'S elite teams despite those teams having all-stars on their roster and Boston having none. The Celtics found themselves in the middle of a 4 team race going into the final week of the NBA regular season for the 7th and 8th spots in the Eastern Conference. The Celtics with no all-star players were in the lead of that 4 team race ahead of 3 teams that everyone thought was a lock for the NBA playoffs before the season started. The Celtics were ahead of a Brooklyn Nets team who had Joe Johnson, Deron Williams and Brook Lopez leading them in their fight for a playoff spot. They were ahead of the Miami Heat who of course did not have Chris Bosh but still had Dwayne Wade, Luol Deng and added Goran Dragic at the trade deadline. They were also ahead of the team that has been one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference the last few seasons along with Miami which is the Indiana Pacers and yet the Pacers had Roy HIbbert and George Hill virtually all season. The Celtics with no Rondo, no Green and while having no Jared Sullinger managed to catch and pass those 3 teams and have the edge going into the final week. So now we will discuss how did the final week end. Did the Celtics do what many thought was impossible and get to the NBA playoffs if so who will they face or are they headed to the lottery again. We recap the season with Adam Lowenstein
