There a is story on ESPN that Kings want to "dump" Nik. Kings is not the best situation for him (he is averaging less than 4 points a game) as he is not used to coming off the bench, and his minutes have remained low. I hope he lands at a place where he can start and gain his mojo back.
Over at UMHoops today they had a feature summarizing the progress of former Michigan basketball players in the NBA. (link)

Episode covers the wins over penn st and minnesota. Also covers the womens games against Rutgers and the OSU victory. Red Berenson got his 800th win as a head coach nice piece on that. Enjoy
If anyone else was as sick as i was yesterday heres something to get your mind off it. For those who missed the game it was a great comeback. This team is playing much better as a team and they are finding ways to get points inside when the outside shot isnt falling. Enjoy BEAT OHIO!!!
