Hey, my wife hated me when we were Sophomores in highschool, but i grew on her too...now we have been married for 8 years (not that i wanna marry any of you)...once you get past my biased hard headedness you will find that i am just a fan of basketball, regardless of who is playing!
Yeah if you hang around long enough you grow on people.:) I can tell you are a real fan. Glad you are here. Hopefully our teams meet up in this playoff still.

How do you guys think Gortat will do on offense? We know he will vacuum up double digit rebounds but do you think there are actually plays called for him on offense?

I think the Polish Hammer will do great for us in some respects but we may need to look pretty hard elsewhere for points. We won't have Dwight and we won't have Courtney for game 6. Where will we get the offense from? I guess Pietrus can replace Lee ok but getting points out of Gortat could be a challenge.

I don't think we can count on Gortat to back up the guys on defense the way Dwight did either.

I think we will need Hedo and Rashard to hit their 3 pointers if we are going to win game 6.

yessir, i took my wife there a week before our daughter was born, but my sister said that its closed now.
Aw bummer. I will never forget that place. I flew out for my brother-in-law's wedding. Went there for the rehearsal dinner. Being from the east coast, dinner was at like 11:00pm EST. Both our kids were under 5 yrs old and were so sleepy. I told my wife, "You go ahead and go in. I'll stay here with the kids awhile while they sleep."

Little did she know at the time...I wanted to stay in the car to catch Game #3 of the Lakers vs. 76ers NBA Finals! lol!

Key is RASHARD/HEDO going to the Basket....This series has already tought us the 3's are not our freinds this time.....
They will have to come up huge.
RASHARD was amazing yesterday but HEDO will have to crank it up plenty.

We'll see. In that Polish article, Gortat blasted SVG for not running any plays through him. He said SVG told him, "About all you can expect is put backs." Which means...how well he does depends how well the rest of the guys are shooting.

Even though you're attempting to be the "bad", you're really the "ugly".
