Doing Lines: Marvin Williams Has the Power in His Hands
Mr. Pollakoff told you all about the ridiculous efforts of Misters Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, who faced off in Miami. But there's a whole 'nother galaxy of awesome out there. Its leader is ... Marvin Williams.
Marvey Milk had 28 points on 11-of-15 shooting, hitting four of six threes and adding four boards and a couple steals. Who did he do it against? That, that's not important. What is important is that, thanks in part to Marvelous, the Hawks were able to escape an awful shooting night from Mike Bibby. (Someone's always gotta clean up after that guy.)
It says here that in the same game, JaVale "Epic Vale" McGee threw up 14/9/3. Well done, kid.
Battle For Kidd's Legacy: Whether Rajon Rondo is the next Jason Kidd "without the passing" has been debated. But can we include Russell Westbrook in this meaningless, circular, possibly ridiculous debate? Westbrook had 17 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds in a Durant-less WIN over Dallas. Yes, the Thunder beat a supposed playoff team without Kevin Durant. Scotty Brooks, what has gotten into you?
Big Nenad Krstic dominated with 26 points. Kidd himself had only 9/5/5 with six steals. Jason Terry's back (20 points off the bench, like a Swiss timepiece), but so is the real Antoine Wright.
