Darnell Mayberry dropped by the OPUBCO Studios to talk hoops. Darnell breaks down the Sonics’ draft options. The NBA Draft is Thursday night…
Darnell Mayberry, Mike Sherman, Mike Koehler and I debated the NBA Finals series, Game 6 is tonight. Also, an update on the trial underway in Seattle.
Darnell Mayberry joined me on the sports desk today to discuss tomorrow night’s matchup of the NBA Finals: Lakers vs. Celtics.
I grew up a huge Lakers fan and still am. No reason why, born and raised in OKC. But I still pull for the LA team.

Oklahomans halfway care because David Cook – who claims Missouri as home, or at least the show does – has played many gigs and served many drinks in the Tulsa area. And for my two cents, he has done a great job when I’ve caught his performances on AI this season. Not that I watch it much. But he’s got great talent.
So here’s the remote, cue the judges, Randy, Paula and Simon… and the right David wins. Cook beats David Archuleta by over 10 million votes.
Back to the hardwood.

Paul finished second and could have won the award judging by his amazing season, unmatched point guard play and leading the Hornets – the Hornets?! – into the Western Conference semifinals.
Kobe meanwhile continues to be the best player in the game. And like all our heroes, he has his flaws.
Michael Ventre, the MSNBC columnist, has a well written, accurate view of Kobe, pros and cons.
If you missed it, Jenni Carlson has a good story about the five men who are leading the charge to keep the Sonics in Seattle.
The story breaks down each of the five men:
