- Former Wildcat Rajon Rondo put on one of the greatest performances of the NBA Playoffs this year on Sunday against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Rondo recorded a triple-double, scoring 29 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists. If you haven't seen the highlights, please check them out on Rondo's behind-the-back pass that faked out LeBron James is sensational. It was truly one of the all-time greatest performances by a Wildcat in the NBA Playoffs. If you can name one better, please do in the comments section. If you were drafting an NBA team from scratch and had your choice of picking any point guard in the NBA, who are you picking? Even in a league with Steve Nash, Jason Kidd and Chris Paul, it would be wise to take a hard look at Rondo. A friend of mine made a great observation that I wanted to share. He said that Rondo's lack of an outside shot is actually an advantage for him. Teams play so far off of him because of his lack of a shot and his quickness that they give one of the game's greatest passers even more lanes to distribute the ball. I don't know how big of a difference it makes, but I thought it was interesting.

- It looks like former UK linebacker Sam Maxwell has finally gotten the break he was hoping for. According to his twitter account, @YoungMax50, Maxwell has signed a free-agent contract with the New Orleans Saints. On Sunday night, Maxwell tweeted, "officially a New orleans Saint BABY!!!! all i need is a foot in the window WHO DAT!!!" Nothing official on the New Orleans Saints website, but we'll take Maxwell's word for it. If the signing is indeed official, that would mean 26 UK players since 2007 have signed NFL contracts. Simply amazing when one considers where this program came from.
