    Kyrie Rookie of the Week

    Congratulations to Kyrie for the co-rookie of the week award. He's off to a great start. Hopefully this is the first of many for the season.

    We should keep a running tally of Barnes, Kyrie, and CJ Leslie wining this award as I bet they are going to dominate it.

    Current results--

    Kyrie Irving - 1
    CJ Leslie - 1
    Harrison Barnes - 0, zero, nil, nada, null set, nix, none, naught, zip, zilch, goose egg, naid (Irish), noll (Swedish), zeru (Sardinian and Corsican), cero (Spanish), meden (Greek), zro (Armenian), nulis (Lithuanian), nulle (Latvian), nula (Czech), sunya (Sanscrit), ling (Cantonese), sefr (Persian), sifuri (Swahili), iqanda (Zulu)

    Don't ask me why, but my mother is making me Tweet. Says it will be good for my career. So, follow my ramblings, mostly on the film industry, @TVFilmTalk

    I thought we were never allowed to mention Barnes by name on here

    Congrats Kyrie!

    You guys will like this.

    This morning, I emailed a buddy of mine who happens to be a big Carolina fan who laid it on me when cough cough Barnes decided to go to Carolina. So this morning I sent him an email with the Irving linked. Address in the message title was Irving 1 Barnes 0.

    I like that, but the elephant in the room is what did his reply say?

    That CJ Leslie kid did pretty well too:

    17 points in the exhibition game (although likely not considered), and then 21 points, 6 boards, 6 assists and 7-10 from the floor in the opener.

    A very elegant proof that Jason Evans knows nothing

    Could you provide a pronunciation guide?

    I didn't get to see the game vs Colgate, however, I did see the Miami(Ohio) game this week. Versus Miami O, Kyrie had a sub par game in terms of minutes, but was very effective while in the game. How was his stat line vs Colgate? What are his chances for back to back Rookie of the week honors?

    Were there any other freshman this week who are more deserving? I know that HB shouldn't get the nod over Kyrie after Friday's performance.

    Unfair to Barnes . . .

    Yes, I think we are being unfair to Barnes. Last night, for example, Barnes was zero for twelve (if I remember correctly) in UNC's loss to Minnesota; would't that clearly make him the biggest Rookie DISAPPOINTMENT of the Week?

    Let's see how the State kids do against Georgetown without Tracy Smith. One of them could earn a nod this weekend.

    Absolutely correct.

    Back to our sensational Fr., Kyrie ought to be winning the (at least) co-Rookie of the Week this week, too. 13ppg, 5.5apg, 4rpg etc., but his play has been so electrfying AND consistent that they don't completely convey how huge his effect is on the game.

    So much for that. Not an impressive outing for the Pack. I like Kyrie's odds of at least sharing it.

    Unhappy McKie gets rookie of the week

    I agree with those who thought Kyrie had a good shot, but Travis McKie of Wake got the rookie of the week award. Here's the link.

    It appears to be deserved, based on those numbers. Congrats to Travis (who has apparently been nicknamed "Tony" by the ACC).

    Congratulations to Travis.

    And a new week begins......
