Halfman of the Day – New York Knicks

15 12 2010

I never thought that I would give a Halfman Award to the Knicks.  But with Amare Stoudemire on board and an 8-game winning streak, its hard to look past the Knicks and their 16-8 record.  Yes they will most likely to lose tonight to the Boston Celtics, but until they do, enjoy the winning streak, enjoy being relevant again, and enjoy being the Halfman of the day.

Today’s halfman – Kobe Bryant

2 02 2010

Last night, while playing the Memphis Grizzlies, Kobe Bryant passed Laker great Jerry West as the all-time leading scorer in the history of the Los Angeles Lakers.   Bryant who now has scored a career 25,208 points, posted 44 last night in the Lakers loss to the Grizzlies.  When asked about his new record, Bryant said “It’s a great honor to say the least [because] of the great players that have played here and the tradition we have”.  Even though the Lakers lost, Bryant set a pretty good record last night, and earns himself the halfman of the day.

Today’s halfman award nominee-Charlotte Bobcats

27 01 2010

For years now, the Charlotte Bobcats could be found in the dictionary under the word horrible.  This year however, they are no where near that word.   The Bobcats, won a huge road game last night beating the Phoenix Suns 114-109 in overtime.   Charlotte has won seven out of their last ten, and currently the Bobcats are sitting seventh in the Eastern Conference standings.  With key addition Stephen Jackson, the Bobcats should have enough to make the playoffs.  Charlotte has proven they can beat any team (Cavs twice), and have earned themselves our halfman nomination of the day.

Today’s halfman award nominee-Shaquille O’Neal

20 01 2010

Today’s halfman award nomination goes to the “Big Diesel”, the “Big Cactus”, or whatever he calls himself these days.  Last night, Shaq became only the fifth player in NBA history to record 28,000 points in a career.  Shaq felt it should have come along time ago by saying “I’ve missed like 5,000 free throws, If I had at least hit half of those, then I would be at 30,000 right now.”  True Shaq, but being in the company of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Michael Jordan, and Wilt Chamberlain shouldn’t make you too upset.  It’s a great achievement and deserving of a halfman nomination.

Today’s halfman award nominee-Kansas State basketball team

19 01 2010

Last night, the Kansas State men’s basketball team beat the number one ranked Texas Longhorns, who have seemed unbeatable all season.  Kansas State held a 10 point lead at halftime, and had to hold on in the second half to secure their 71-62 victory in Manhattan Kansas.  Thousands of fans wore fake beards in tribute to Jacob Pullen, Kansas State’s best scorer, but it was Jamar Samuels who lead K-State to victory with 20 points and 12 rebounds.  Even though Kansas State was ranked 9th in the country, it our eyes it was an upset and worthy of a halfman nomination.
