    Thanks to John Wall, one class's final exam became a lot less stressful

    It took about 48 hours for LeBron James to go from being allegedly "snubbed" in MVP balloting to the he's-not-as-good-as-Michael-Jordan insults after the Cavs lost a 21-point lead in a Game 3 loss to the Boston Celtics. The Cavs aren't losing the East finals series. If that does happen, then we can revisit the LeBron-Jordan debate but comparing greats who played in different eras is difficult and oftentimes pointless. Different rules. Different style of play.

    It’s difficult to pinpoint what exactly it is that Rakeem Christmas is or should be for the Indiana Pacers. He runs the floor hard and isn’t afraid to scrap on the offensive glass (grabbing the second-highest percentage of Indiana’s misses), but generally speaking he’s still a non-shooting, small-ball center in a 6-foot-9 power forward’s body. When Al Jefferson was sidelined with dental pain, the Pacers played 3.57 possessions faster when Rakeem Christmas was on the floor as opposed to off. In that regard, replacing Big Al’s aging with the 25-year-old’s spryness was a sight for sore eyes. “We’ve been thinking about him and tonight provided an opportunity for him to play with Al being out,” Nate
