Kansas Jayhawks, please stand up! My boys in crimson and blue have been rocking this tournament. I told you guys not to count them out. Now, we’re in the Final Four and only two teams stand in between us and that trophy. We can’t look too far ahead though, since Ohio State has had a great run. They will be a tough test, but I have faith in my team.

This year’s tournament has been a lot of fun to watch and it is really getting me pumped for the NBA playoffs. Four powerhouses are now ready to duke it out for the title, what else could you ask for? Besides having my Jayhawks still in the hunt, my bracket isn’t doing too bad either. I still have two of the Final Four teams in the mix. How do you guys match up against me and some of your other favorite celebrities? Take a look @TheLockerRoom to find out, or check out my personal bracket here http://pic.twitter.com/fYETTmmW.

Between the March Madness excitement and our playoff push, it’s been a crazy few weeks. This season has also held a lot of individual milestones for me, and I recently was fortunate enough to pass the great Clyde Drexler to become the 26th all-time leading scorer in NBA history. These are the memories I’ll be able to sit back and reflect upon once I’ve retired, but for now I’m focused on the goal at hand: getting back to the NBA Finals to bring another championship home to Boston.
