Preseason box scores!!! Its great to see Kwame shooting with such accuracy. I cant actually watch the games: I wonder if hes got some low post moves, or if hes just grabbing sloppy seconds and using his outrageous physique to get put backs. Its also nice to see Juan DIxon have so many rebounds. I love that flyweight frame/heavyweight attitude. Hopefully he'll mature into A Baron Davis or Stevie Francis aggressor. Hopefully that will come with adolesence.
On to the nights biggest news:
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) _ Eddie Jones scored 20 points, including 11 in the third quarter, as the Miami Heat beat the Atlanta Hawks 113-93 in a preseason game Thursday night....
The Birmingham crowd was at its loudest toward the end of the game, shouting ``We want Rod!'' in reference to former Alabama star Rod Grizzard.
Grizzard, who was cut by the Washington Wizards and signed with Atlanta on Wednesday, entered with 2:40 left in the game. He had one shot blocked and then hit a 3-pointer, eliciting a standing ovation
Reminds me of a post-players-strike free preseason game I attended at the MCI Center with Dana and a whole lotta ghetto. For the whole game, the crowd chanted "We want Rod!!" at Wes Unseld, desperate for Rod Strickland to get his big fat contract worked out. We coulda got a couple dozen Grizzards for the price of that contract.
