Am watching Nets-Celtics game on Yes Network. Not sure why—pre-season basketball is excruciatingly dull, and the Nyets are sub-excruciating.
Back in the day, I was a pretty big Nets fan. Dennis Hopson, Chris Morris, Sam Bowie, Mike O’Koren, Kenny and D.C. and Drazen—those were my players. Not nearly as big a fan now as I was then, but right now I’m stumped. The announcers just went over the team’s planned starting lineup from 2010-11, and Anthony Morrow is the shooting guard.
Literally, I didn’t know this man existed before right now. I mean no ill-will—he’s probably a nice guy, and anyone on an NBA roster had significant talent. But I can’t recall a time when I didn’t know a Net starter. Oy.
Along those lines, where the hell is Stephon Marbury? Talk about a hard fall—invisible. Gone. Never to return.
