In case anyone's around, here's a place to chat. I've got to practice guitar, so I'll be in and out. As dialogue may be scarce, feel free to just throw down any observations/impressions. After the 1st half, here are a few of my own.
1. DJ is for real. Put him against 2nd string centers this year and watch him grow into a force.
2. Kareem is good. He manages to get to the right place on the floor. I like having him in there.
3. Telfair needs to resist the jump shot and drive instead. His speed and passing are impressive. His 3 pt attempts are not.
4. Griffin has had some tough calls tonight. Thumbs up on his tenacity, though.
5. Kaman looks good, a steadying presence. Mr Dependable?
6. Craig Smith, Mr Rhinoceros. Wanna bruise the other guy? Give him the ball and stand back.
7. Thornton can grab a rebound if and when he makes up his mind.
8. The Clips are best when Baron's around.
9. Check out a couple of DJ's 1st quarter slams. It's fun when he and Griffin are playing together.
