WEEKEND PICKS: THE NBA IN THE BIG EASY

What to watch for in this weekend's biggest matchups.  

Rookies over SOPHOMORES — The rookie team never wins.  But if it's ever gonna happen, it could be with this year's solid crop of rookies.

DWIGHT HOWARD over Jamario Moon — Jamario's going to surprise some people, but the fans will give Dwight the "Training Day Best Actor" win.  Actually, I don't feel confident about that at all.  But it feels cool to sound like I know what's up.

OFFENSIVE PRODUCTION over Defensive Effort — West 152, East 136?  What a nail-biter!

Bill Belichick over FANS — There's now a class-action suit against Bill Belichick.  I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that you're not gonna get $100 million out of Bill.

KELLY PAVLIK over Jermain Taylor — That's what Unsilent Majority told me, and he actually cares about boxing.
