<chuckle> Yeah, well, that's just the anticipated result. The crowd was
chanting that at the end of last night's game:

and then there's this:

Yes, definitely a good one.

>hedo was fantastic,

Yep, he was.  (I just knew him by his last name -- Hedo Turkoglu. I'm still
learning all these names! <grin>)

So was Mike Bibby (23 points plus assists), and Chris Webber, too, of course.

Jackson is quite amazing with those feet and how he can manage shots when
it doesn't look like there's even a possibility.

Yes, Vlade Divac is definitely up for the task.

I suspect my son could carry on a great conversation with you about each of
these guys as he's been to so many games and watched the others on the TV.
I've only watched about 10 games all season and I'm just beginning to learn
their names.

Ah. I haven't paid nearly as much attention to the Eastern Conference.

>i love teams that hustle

Definitely understandable! Me, too.

I think they can, too. They beat them during the season, too.

>were you at the game with your son, shirley?

Nope. His dad took him. He was able to pull a few strings to get those
tickets just 2 rows behind the team owners. I talked to him during the game
but could barely hear him over all the crowd noise.... but he was obviously
having fun. :-)

I just watched at home with my daughter. Still fun but I know it was
nothing like being there!
