As a tribute to the great Larry Bird, Grantland.com’s Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose record an NBA recap every 33 days called “The Birdmester.” The second edition was released yesterday and it took Jalen Rose one minute and twenty seconds to call DeMarcus Cousins the MVP of the NBA. Simmons, wearing a DeMarcus Cousins jersey on the show, said he loves the Boogie tornado.

ESPN.com linked to the podcast on its front page this morning with a photo of Cousins and the title, “Let’s Boogie.” It’s just another example of the noise our guy is making around the league this season with his 23.3 points and 11.5 rebounds per game. It’s a crying shame he won’t be an All-Star this year.

Vote for DeMarcus here. Listen to the second Birdmester here.

    Zach Lowe also said in a podcast that the three most untradeable players in the NBA were LeBron, Durant and then Anthony Davis. As in, those are the three most impactful assets in the league. Crazy stuff.

      During this podcast, Simmons also strongly hinted that AD would be #2 behind LeBron in his annual trade value column.

    The 2010 team was just too stacked. Wall, Bledose, Patterson, Cousins is just a crazy amount of talent.

    It just goes to show you how hard it is to win it all with freshmen because talent-wise, this team was even better than 2012.

      If Meeks had stayed we would be looking for #10 right now. All that team lacked was a consistent shooter (sorry Dodson) and Meeks would’ve been a perfect fit.

    I’m still hoping Boogie, Wall, and Davis will all make the all-star team as reserves. It’s doubtful all make the team though, due to the idiotic fan-voting for starters. This causes some the players who should be starting to have to be selected as reserves, thus bumping some of the should-be reserves to get bumped from the roster. Fans voting for Kobe Bryant to start this year. Dumb.

    It doesn’t make since to vote for players that have been hurt all year (Kobe, Rose). Put players in it that deserve it.

    In the Birdmester review, Jalen says something along the lines of “If you wanna start an argument about basketball with us, just say something about Boogie or John Wall.” Our former Wildcats are getting a lot of love and respect at the next level.

    Bill and Jalen also proclaimed themselves Boogie’s biggest fans. I think they need to qualify that with “outside Kentucky”.
