The titile of this post says it all: Is DeMarcus Cousins an All-Star?
Well, I'll say this -- as I say in this interview with Grant Napear of KHTK Radio in Sacramento -- he is certainly an All-Star talent, and I have even given him an All-NBA third team vote in the past. But then I'll also ask you this: Is Gordan Hayward an All-Star?
Again, the Jazz shotmeister is certainly an All-Star talent, but an All-Star? I'll leave that for the coaches to decide, since the coaches are the ones who pick the reserves. But I'll warn both Cousins and Hayward that coaches value winning above all else. And they abhor players who put up great stats on terrible teams.
Now, it is debatable whether the Kings and/or Jazz are terrible teams. They have both put up some exceptionally quality wins in the past couple of weeks, but they have the misfortune of playing in the highly competitive Western Conference, where there will be at least 4 good teams in the draft lottery this year.
As for the All-Star Game, let's assume the five starters are going to be the five players who are leading the balloting (with the exception of Kobe Bryant, who is injured and likely will not play. Incoming commissioner Adam Silver will pick his replacment). The coaches will select seven reserves. In the backcourt, Bryant and Stephen Curry are the leading vote-getters, and Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard and Blake Griffin are the leaders at the three frontcourt positions.
Who are the seven most worthy players after that?
Hard to find room for Cousins or Hayward. More at www.sheridanhoops.com.

This week’s episode of Life Interrupted Radio is about secrets, misplaced shame and coming through it all to live your gifts and bring light into the world. When I first met our guest she had me laughing with the quote; “it takes a lot of energy to be miserable…” it sure does, that’s why I encourage you to join me, Sharon Sayler, host of Life Interrupted Radio when I interview Dr. Anita Sanchez.
Dr. Sanchez was born into a large family (120 first cousins) and she is proud of her Mexican American and Native American cultures. Today, she bridges her extensive knowledge of indigenous wisdom with modern leadership skills to bring together the hearts and minds of the leaders she works with.
Anita grew up with a life full of secrets, as she shares, “feeling like I was living two lives.” As a young girl, Anita realized that despite growing up surrounded by violence and feeling shame and guilt as only a little child can carry, she knew it was an illusion that it was two lives…it was her life!
Anita’a deepest passion is to share with you how to:
• listen with the “softest part of your ear,”
• guide the words you put to the wind,
• lead with the natural gifts you are given,
AND create a “magical” transformation of the hearts and heads of those around you.

What are They waiting for, and What do We have to offer?
Becoming a Cosmic Citizen
May 18th, 6PM Mountain 8PM Eastern - Week 18
This week we will get back to the book and discuss some questions many of us have asked ourselves. Why don’t our Star Cousins just land on the White House lawn and put an end to the question once and for all? What are our Star Brothers and Sisters doing here, and what do they have to offer us. Are we even ready for contact?
Even more interesting is the question of what do we have to offer to the Universe. What is our place in the big picture of things, and what is the future of humanity. Are we truly becoming Homo Luminous as some say? Will we soon be going out among the stars to assist other emerging civilizations?
We always welcome your questions and calls. Please keep your questions of general interests.
Call 1-646-478-3085 and if you wish to talk press 1 to be put in the cue, or you can listen at www.BlogTalkRadio.com/Sierra-Neblina
And if you want to read ahead, next week’s topic will be:
“Service to Self, Service to Others, Service to the Universe”.
I am planning on going to Egypt with Sierra. Sign up at GalacticU.com to join us, and say Don sent you.
Last summer, we ran a post on SheridanHoops.com detailing which players received the biggest raises in salary from the previous year. The list was made up of three types of players.
A. Players who received maximum salary deals as their second contracts, such as DeMarcus Cousins.
B. Former first-round picks who received sizable contract extensions, although not necessarily max deals, such as Larry Sanders.
C. Second-round picks who had been making near league minimum and signed new deals, such as Lance Stephenson.
The latter category has some candidates this year as well. Among them are forwards Draymond Green of Golden State, Jae Crowder of Boston and Khris Middleton of Milwaukee.
We've already explained how Middleton's improvement over the last two years and the stratospheric leap made by the Bucks from the worst team in the league to a playoff team could land the restricted free agent a contract averaging eight figures.
But given that Middleton doesn't turn 24 until August, appears to have a ways to go before reaching his ceiling and the huge increase in the salary cap coming in 2016, is it possible that he receives a maximum contract offer this summer, either from the Bucks or another team?
And can the Bucks - who have a dicey new arena issue on their hands - go the max on Middleton, with extensions due down the road for Giannis Antetokounmpo, Michael Carter-Williams and Jabari Parker?
Chris Bernucca of SheridanHoops.com answered those questions and others about an important offseason for the Bucks with Greg Matzek of WTMJ-AM in Milwaukee.

Born in Providence RI. Synista spitting them sick rhymes started really making a name for himself around the RI rap scene. Doing shows, open mics, battling other m.c.'s, and raising hell on the streets. Sin would constantly cheat death many times with the reckless lifestyle he was living. Running with a rowdy bunch. In attempt to slow him down and make something of his life his cousins Intellect and Emecca formed the group Influenza and took their cousin in. They made a demo that blazed the streets and caught the attention of Styles Amazing/Mass Hysteria. They was smashing shows straight killing the New England region. INFLUENZA was a group to look out for. But in 1999 the group disbanded. He moved to Houston and started rocking open mics for a year. In 2000 he moved to Atlanta. But more setbacks and drama would come his way. Deals that fell through, jail time, violent beefs, and tragic deaths. Synista gave up on music in 2003. But in 2004 Synista decided to round up his street click and formed the AFC(African Family Connection) and tried making a name for themselves in the Atlanta music scene. But more legal drama and street beef would complicate their grind. The rest of the AFC click would relocate to North Carolina, Philly, South Carolina, and Providence. But Synista would remain in Atlanta. But more tragic obstacles kept coming at him. This would motivate Synista . He would hit up every open mic straight killing every open mic, shows, and battles. People started to notice. When he entered the world famous battle league Gindtimenow, he became very contreversial figure in the battle circuit. Traveling the country and made name for himself. With his street family AFC, its easy to see Synista will definetley make his mark among rap's top spittaz.

This week we'll be interviewing Angela Thurston, one of the brightest young millienial stars we know. Angie Thurston is at Harvard Divinity School to deepen spiritual community among millennials amidst increasing religious disaffiliation. A graduate of Brown University, Angie spent six years as a playwright and arts administrator in New York City. She now applies her creative energy to collaborations centered on fostering spiritual growth.
America is changing: Millennials are less religiously affiliated than ever before. Churches are just one of many institutional casualties of the internet age in which young people are both more globally connected and more locally isolated than ever before.
Against this bleak backdrop, a hopeful landscape is emerging. Millennials are flocking to a host of new organizations that deepen community in ways that are powerful, surprising, and perhaps even religious. After two years of noticing this happen, Angela has coauthored this report with Casper ter Kuile. The two are sharing their findings in order to start a conversation. They speak to three groups of people: Organizational leaders, organizational supporters and those interested in America’s changing religious landscape.
They highlight ten organizations that illustrate what is happening. These organizations have a shared ethos. They map out their ancestry, sibling projects, and cousins in corporate America. They close the report with a few considerations for the organizations and others invested in their success, asking: Who are we serving? How are we leading? What about God?
Hopefully these organizations will begin to see themselves as part of a broader cultural shift toward deeper community. By consciously coming together, they could form the DNA of a fruitful movement for personal spiritual growth and social transformation. We invite you to join us in considering how millennials are changing the way we gather.
