Quote of the day
"You have to be pretty off to miss an alley-oop to Dwight." -- Orlando PG Jameer Nelson, after he and Dwight Howard converted on multiple alley-oop dunks in a win over Detroit
Remember all the discussion last spring and summer about whether Stephen Curry could be successful in the NBA? I don’t think there’s any question now. Last night, with Monta Ellis still sidelined, he once again filled up the stat sheet with 24 points, 15 assists, 6 rebounds, and 3 steals. His 24 points were only the third highest on his team, as C.J. Watson chipped in 40, while Anthony Morrow contributed 25. Pretty decent night for Warrior guards. And the question on Curry is no longer if he can make it, but if he can star.
So Tiger Woods is going to read a script on camera at 11am on Friday. Do you suppose that the timing has anything to do with the fact that one of the sponsors who dumped him – Accenture – will be in the midst of their signature match-play tournament at the same moment?
In the non-Accenture event, GuruGolf managers flocked to K.J. Choi this week, as he found his way onto 60% of all foursomes. Sounds like a candidate for “high buyer syndrome”. Less than half of the golfers in this week’s field are represented on GuruGolf rosters.
