Bandwagon. The world's a bandwagon.
Fortunately, I don't know Chris (yet) so I hold no animosity towards him. Chuckles and I worked through the details and his wife has straightened him out. Otherwise I send her no more gifts.
And you are correct, I never would have defaced the ball. Of course, if Smaq could shoot free throws, he would probably be at 25K now. Yeah, yeah, I know, nobody practices harder than he does. Still, pretty sad. I actually developed my dislike for him prior to his Laker days when he could have already had two championships under his belt, had he been able to shoot free throws. And it would have dimmed the aura of a certain Bull. But, clanging iron from the stripe will be his legacy, if only to me. He may be in the top five all time, but not number one.
Kobe who? Funny how Sacramento and Seattle are both out west, eh? Given the way the Celts are playing, I wouldn't be all that surprised if they lose, especially to a hot Philly. But it won't really matter when the Lakers get their lottery pick.
Dale? who is this Dale you speak of. Probably another old guy in Canada.
