The Real Deal

Hate to say it on the eve of March Madness, but this college basketball season has been pretty dreadful.

Kentucky and Illinois have had mediocre-at-best seasons. The Big Eleven is really, really...really awful -- to the point that if they had only taken two teams in the tournament I wouldn't have even batted an eye.

But last night brought a glimpse of some basketball really worth looking at, and looking forward to.

Suns 129, Mavs 127 in Double OT.

It may only be the Western Conference Final, but should this series come about as it should, it has all the earmarks of the best basketball series since the Lakers/Celtics or Celtics/Sixers rivalries in the early '80s.

Can't wait.
