NIBL 2K Awards
Drum roll please... the All-NIBL 2000 team:
What a co-inky-dink... all the All-NIBL players come from the four NIBL playoff teams. Ha!
The rookie with the most nibls this year...
Elton Brand was a close second with 1,328 nibls and Lamar Odom had 1,267 nibls. The amazing thing about these rookies is that they were all in the top 25 of the whole league in scoring.
And, yawn, the MVP of the planet (but he's not good enough to play for Shakopee):
Shaq average 50 nibls a game... that's 100 nibls per week! Shaq rules.
I get caught in the crossfire of quite a bit of the playoff smack email.... especially between young Danny Bruessel of the Diablo Spawn and Joliet Tim "the Best of the Best". Since he has the upper hand (and Shaq and Kobe), here's the gospel according to Diablo Danny:
It's good to be the Lakers... should we start calling Danny, mini-Phil Jackson?
NIBL 2001 Draft Order
