    Opening Pitch

    Introducing, Sherrell McMillan, KING-MAG.com’s newest sports blogger.

    For some reason the fine people at King-Mag.com decided to give me this space to talk about sports. That’s cool and I’m glad they did, so before we
    get down to the sometimes dirty business of bantering about athletics, here are 10 rules that guide my sports world:

    1) ACC basketball is king and it’s not even close.
    2) SEC football was, is and will always be the best football in the country.
    3) Peyton Manning is the greatest quarterback of all-time.
    4) Spelling “Krzyzewski” right is something that I will never learn, nor want to.
    5) There will never be another Michael Jordan so we should stop looking, Kobe Bryant is about as close as we’ll ever come and he sure isn’t MJ.
    6) We all have our vices — mine is an addiction to Nike gear.
    7) Ken Griffey Jr. is the best baseball player I’ve ever seen.
    8) Freshman point guards do not win NCAA championships
    9) The best game I’ve ever watched was the 2006 Rose Bowl.
    10) Roy Williams, the former Mr. Kelly Rowland, is the most overrated player in NFL history.

    Who am I? I adore my family, friends, music, Carolina sports, Jordan Brand, my apartment, roasted chicken andOutback cheese fries. I don’t like big cities but I don’t want to live in towns my whole life. I don’t know when to shut my mouth but I leave plenty unspoken. I am a mess of contradictions but it all makes sense to me – usually. My name is Sherrell McMillan.

    1.)I’m a Big East man, myself, but the ACC is ALWAYS tough, so I’ll leave this one alone 8.)I was struggling to come up with a noteworthy freshman PG who did it, but I couldn’t. I was about to mention Isiah Thomas, but he was a sophomore when his Indiana squad won it all. 10.)I agree WHOLEHEARTEDLY. I can’t stand Roy Williams. Welcome to King. I’m already enjoying your column!

    Since 1990 the only freshman point guards to win a national title Gerry McNamara (Syracuse 03′) and Mike Bibby (Arizona 97′).
