Hey guys, I know you've already heard about SB Nation's YouTube channel, but we don't get the sense that enough of you are actually taking advantage of these great sports shows. So, here's a message from the fine folks at SB Nation Studios (yes, we have a studio now).

Video has come to SB Nation. We launched SB Nation's official YouTube channel on March 1st with some pretty large ambitions: let's try something new. Across the entire network, we approach the world of sports from a different angle. The passion, expertise, and first-rate analysis and discussion that takes place every day on our sites is something to be proud of and we didn't want to ruin that with a bunch of talking heads in suits and ties with no game-footage rights.

We've got humor, expert analysis, weirdness, video gifs, and incredible storytelling all in one place and we're really proud of what this thing has become. Right now, we're producing over 30 new original videos every single week. Be sure to subscribe to not miss anything. Here's a rundown of the offerings:

Shutdown Fullback (College Football meets Tim & Eric -- New episodes every Friday): If you've ever wondered what it would look like to see a video version of threads on EDSBS.com, we ll here you go. Simultaneously a college football talk show and unintentional postmodern art project, I personally guarantee Spencer Hall and Jason Kirk will make you laugh (or else they've duff'd it). Essential Viewing: Bobby Petrino Fired episode with hot blonde assistant - http://youtu.be/k6inSsQpI2E

Bomani & Jones (All sports; opinion and commentary -- New episodes Monday and Thursday): Around the Horn contributor and known Twitter user Bomani Jones is Bomani & Jones: sketches and commentary with no excuses. Think Chapelle's Show for the internet and the sports world. Essential Viewing: Oklahoma Thunder are the Rolling Stones: http://youtu.be/DGfsuOtPZtI

Full Nelson (All sports; Outside the Lines with a sense of humor -- New episodes every Wednesday): Athletes, Access, and Culture. Full Nelson takes an inside look at the most interesting stories from the world of sports in a beautiful, different, and always interesting package. Host Amy K. Nelson joined SB Nation after years of reporting for ESPN and regularly appearances on OTL and First Take andFull Nelson offers something new every week. Bonus points to Full Nelson for having the most-viewed video of our whole channel with Amy's perilous tour of a Duke bar during the Duke/UNC matchup. Check it out here: http://youtu.be/qyY6EBygUWw

The Sporting Gentlemen (All sports, comedy; sketches, tours, behind-the-scenes, interviews -- new episodes daily): The all-encompassing daily video series The Sporting Gentlemen, featuring Dan Rubenstein and Matt Ufford, features unique (read: weird and occasionally threatening) reactions to the day's biggest stories, plus remote, generally participatory segments out in the field defined primarily by a general lack of athleticism, coordination, and respect.

An example of an ongoing segment that has taken the world by storm is "Bro vs Douchebag," which promises to be the authority on determining how athletes should be filed and categorized as humans. Heavy stuff. Essential viewing: Bro vs Douchebag ...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dv1nIUxm5TY&feature=plcp. Welcome to New York, Tim Tebow ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asD5xsFlyxU.

The Core of Sports (All sports, epic -- new episodes monthly): The Core of Sports is our answer to Sports Science, taking you inside the mind of elite athletes in the most cinematic way possible. Essential viewing: UFC Fighter Brian Stann's Epic Training: http://youtu.be/wh0apFY3ewM

The Petey and Lomo Show (Baseball; comedy): It's our first reality show and we followed Miami Marlins players Bryan Petersen and Logan Morrison (Petey and LoMo, to the initiated) as they tried to find ways to fill the boredom that is Spring Training in South Florida. Essential viewing: Marlins Off The Hook (i.e. Master-baiters): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqRwu8VyUv0&feature=plcp

News from the Studio (All sports; analysis, breakdowns, experts -- new videos every day): We're not just doing sketches... we're all over breaking news, using experts from around SB Nation to weigh in on the latest news from their respective homes, workplaces, and law offices. Some of our biggest communities are represented here regularly... what about yours? Essential viewing: Ben Golliver breaks down Lamar Odom's departure: http://youtu.be/WFCYSx2aApA

Extra fun stuff: We'll also be doing one off series and videos and undertaking big projects from time to time. Check out these draft profiles we made for every single first-round prospect (complete with whimsical narration and the finest animation money can buy):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVskxCKhYPY&list=UUeil3VBekFxA9AwBx7JXzPA&feature=plcp

Also, this wouldn't be YouTube without some fun viral videos. Check out Dolphinception (http://youtu.be/CrptLxy35V0), Epic High Five with Vernon Davis (http://youtu.be/rshc4RxIwSc), and 8-Bit Petrino Accident (http://youtu.be/NwqBEuJBhhs).

PHOENIX — For the past eight seasons, Steve Nash has been the face of the Phoenix Suns franchise, and to borrow a phrase from Lon Babby, its sun, moon and stars as well. But now for the first...

Four more games today as the first round of the NBA Playoffs rolls into day two. Kevin Durant supplied the thrills last night with his game-winner as the Thunder took down the Mavericks in game 1, but the day was marred by season-ending injuries to Bulls' Derrick Rose and Knicks' Iman Shumpert. With Rose out, it appears the Heat won't face much serious resistance in returning to the NBA Finals.

Today's games:

Well, Suns fans, it's another two months until the NBA Draft, which will be followed by the Summer of Steve, and by August we'll have many of our questions about the future of this team answered.

In the meantime, we'll see if this year's post-season can replicate the excitement of last year's when the Spurs were upset in the first round, the Lakers in the second, and the Mavericks got hot at just the right time to send LeBron James home without a ring yet again.

Today's matchups feature the top three seeds in the Eastern Conference, the Bulls, Heat and Pacers. The nightcap will be the West's top team Oklahoma City Thunder hosting the defending NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks. Not a bad way to start things off.
