LeBron/Noah & POW Awards

Wollongong Hawks import Tywain McKee continues to have a huge impact in his rookie NBL season and he has been rewarded with this week's NBL Player of the Week award.

This week it was a two horse race between McKee and Perth Wildcat Luke Schenscher.

McKee once again took over the fourth quarter of a game as he led his team to a come from behind win of the New Zealand Breakers.

While I'm on about Player of the Week honours, Aussie big man AJ Ogilvy has received the award in the USA. Ogilvy plays for the Vanderbilt Commodores (NCAA) in the highly ranked SEC.

Ogilvy averaged 22pts and 6rebs as the Commodores took care of Missouri and DePaul during the week.

After a slow start to the season, Ogilvy seems to have found his groove. Great timing as conference play is just around the corner.

A couple of NBA stories to wrap it up.

Joakim Noah and LeBron James got into a little jaw jacking the other day and LeBron just danced it off in the end.

And check out the intro and Allen Iverson's reaction on his return to the Philadelphia 76ers.

Nobody called them both out on this. One, you don't dance. MJ, Bird, Magic, even Shaq would never have danced after a game to rub it into an opponent. You just clobbered a team, what kind of an arsehole does that? It's bad sportsmanship.

However Noah should have shut up. Don't whine about anything when you just played a rubbish game with a half effort.

There is no right in this situation, from either perspective they are just both wrong.
