Okay, I'm busy these two weeks, so busy I'm lame-ducking it, posting this in advance 'cause I have to keep up with the latest results from Italy. How busy?

|Another MVP-worthy season, and Top-60 consideration, for Steve Nash.|
I'm 'Zo-not-reporting it.
I'm East Bay funk-dunkin' and lovin' myself even more for it busy (A nice catch from True Hoop, perfectly in keeping with the theme here).
That Spree bobblehead chase has got it going on, though, keeping this blog ticking over nicely. And along with a gathering push for one Steve Nash, it even resulted in a J.E. Skeets missive, and how reassuring is that, Skeets having been a little under the weather of late -- so under the weather, in fact, that he doubled his blog empire. Here's how the early returns look for the 10 available additions to the original NBA's 50 Greatest list:
Unanimous (9 votes): Kobe, Duncan
Very Strong: Dominique 8, Iverson 7, McAdoo 7, Garnett 6
Lukewarm: Kidd 4, Reggie Miller 4, Nash 4, Rodman 4, Nowitzki 3, Payton 3, Dumars 2
Single votes: Alex English, McGrady, Wade, Nobody but Shaq and Wilt, Petrovic, The Bonzi/Bowen hybrid, Muggsy Bogues, Manute Bol, Chris Mullen, Mark Price, Jeff Hornacek (and his ear tug), Bob Lanier, Bernard King, Adrian Dantley, Connie Hawkins, Chet Walker, Ben Wallace.
Still time to get a vote in if you haven't. With all the vote-switching going on I'm really on the fence about Reggie, Kidd and GP. Keep having these second thoughts about this guy.
Just delivered, here's TNT's Top 20, out of which they'll select their 10 additions:
Walt Bellamy, Alex English, Dennis Johnson, Reggie Miller, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Jason Kidd, Steve Nash, Adrian Dantley, Connie Hawkins, Bernard King, Gary Payton, Joe Dumars, Allen Iverson, Bob Lanier, Dennis Rodman ,Tim Duncan, LeBron James, Bob McAdoo, Dominique Wilkins.
Looks like they've been reading here. No mention of Bonzi Bowen, but only D.J. is one y'all missed.
