Update: Lakers-Nuggets & NFL Draft

The Nuggets didn't fare any better in Denver last night. The Lakers won pretty decisively,102-84. The Nuggets are now down 0-3. According to Carmelo Anthony, he and his teammates simply "quit" in the middle of the game. And according to the LA Lakers fans gathered at Denver's Pepsi Center on Saturday night, Kobe Bryant is the obvious choice for MVP (by the fourth quarter, they had abandoned watching the game in favor of chanting "MVP" in Bryant's direction). The next game is tomorrow night, also in Denver. As if it matters...

In NFL draft news, as someone who calls Central Florida home, I was very happy to see that Kevin Smith, a running back out of the University of Central Florida, was chosen first in the third round by the Detroit Lions. The university's football program has really come a long way in the past few years, and this is such an exciting development for the school. Go Knights!
