We all have bad days. Even NBA greats. Observe:
Note Tim Hardaway’s stellar performance: 44 minutes, 2 points, 0 FOR 17 from the field. He did have 13 assists, and Golden State still won. When you have Chris Mullin, that can happen. A few more observations:
– SOSB favorite VINCENT ASKEW got the start. Askew only got 27 starts in his 14-year career, so I always make an effort to point one out when I find one.
– Tyrone Hill also got the start that night. Only got 9 minutes, but you have to remember that Hill was best served as a “short-burst” kind of player at that point. It was early in his career, and he still had interests outside of basketball, including building upon the movie career he started with “The Serpent and The Rainbow.”
That’s all for now. Remember, if you’re down, things will get better. They got better for Tim Hardaway, of course. Just don’t go using him as a guideline for the anti-gay comments you might be considering unleashing. It’s best to keep your mouth shut.
