   Anybody Wanna See Second Prize? Second Prize Is A Set Of Steak Knives.....

Alexander's NBA career thus far may as well not have happened. Save for a dunk contest campaign, he's done nothing of note. Last year, for example, he made precisely one shot. That said, despite the lack of production, the fact he was drafted above Brook Lopez, the alleged internal suspension in his rookie year for a biblical relationship with a cheerleader, and the general stench of failure surrounding his career so far, he's not THIS bad. Alexander could, and should, be a contributor somewhere, and he's only 23. There's still potential there.

   New Jersey......Toronto.......London.

One thing that was apparent from our vantage point was the rebounding action on every play. Or, to put it another way, the lack of rebounding action on every play. We didn't need a close seat to see who was and wasn't fighting for position and the ball. To truly appreciate the rebounding apathies of Bargnani and Brook Lopez, you have to see them in person.


Strangely, New Jersey played better as a team once Brook Lopez fouled out. It's probably a coincidence - Brook's 34 point, 14 rebound, 8 block game had kept New Jersey in the game, and his replacement, Outlaw, did little - but it was illuminating. At the very least, Brook demonstrated more hustle on this night than in the previous one. That is to say, he got over the halfcourt line for at least half of New Jersey's possessions.

(Brook is one of the best centre prospects we have had for many a year. This is proven by the way he walked into a 34/14/8 without using a huge amount of effort to do it. And he's already loafing his way to 20ppg. But he needs a little Humphries in him to realise his potential. So does Robin Lopez.)

   Shaq was so big, the rest of the league had to go small

[...] Take, for example, Brook Lopez. A post player his whole life, a player who operated from the mid-range and in both at Stanford and in his first eight NBA seasons, a player who made three total three pointers in those first eight seasons, and yet now a player with 132 made threes this season alone. [For comparison’s sake, Laimbeer hit 202 three-pointers in total in 13 seasons.]
