Was It Good For You ……. ?

I don’t know if many you may well have caught the end to that ‘phenomenal’ game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Utah Jazz ? As great a game as there have no doubt been in the NBA this season and no doubt throughout the remainder of the season. I doubt that you’ll have find one that had such an exhilarating ending to it and with such an unlikely ‘hero’ to it all at the end of the day’.

The player in question who outshone the likes of LeBron James and even his own ‘Jazz’ ‘teammates’ such as Kyle Korver, Andrei Kirilenko, Carlos Boozer and Paul Millsap was NBA D developmental league payer , Sundiata Gaines. His heroics, in the nine total minutes he was on the court for the Jazz has made him a hero and left an indelible mark on the Utah Jazz fans.
And the 97-96 victory that came about will be something that Gaines can have as a story to tell his kids as well as his great-grand kids and great-great grand kids for years to come. Such were ‘his heroics’ on the night.

Savor it whilst you can, cause not even ‘Hollywood’ could’ve scripted a better story or ending.

      It was a terrific night for the kid and in front of a national tv audience where he essentially showed many of the league’s so called top players. This will definitely be a story that he can tell his children long into the future.

      I can’t wait as the Cowboys Vikings’ game is something that I’m intently looking forward to ! I think that a Superbowl with Favre in it would be the ‘worse case scenario possible ‘ to my mind !

      That’s why I’d like to see the Cowboys take down the Vikes once and for all. That way Favre hopefully will once again ride off into the sunset and retire for good once and for all !

      How many times do we have to put up with his continued s_it ? Will he or won’t he ? These are the antics of an adolescent kid not a grown man !
