Grantland Power Rankings: Gonzaga number 9 (http://grantland.com/the-triangle/titus-top-12-ncaa-power-rankings-basketball-kentucky-wildcats-duke-blue-devils-wisconsin-badgers-arizona-wildcats-louisville-cardinals/)


Przemek Karnowski (who is Polish) and Domantas Sabonis (who is Lithuanian) are a nightmare tandem down low, and they’ll have a killer nickname once I convince the world to call them the “Low Bloc.”

I'm with you, but I like the idea of coming up with a nickname for all 4 big men.

Power Towers
Earth (Karno), Wind (Nunez), Fire (Wiltjer), and Ice (Sabonis)

Sounds political, given their native countries.

That's kind of the joke, yes.

I guess, we should check - is this the kind of thing that would be offensive to citizens of those countries?

Exactly, breaking away from the cold war Russian bloc is a badge of honor in their countries.

Can't tell if you're serious or not. I absolutely loved Earth Wind and Fire!

The writer's reference to jay bilas in the intro wasn't good... It was great.
