[Thanks to Chgobr for tonight's game preview. -Matt]
Opening night at the UC - does life get better than this? It would if we won the opener but that diary is history. If only Wallace...I'm going to stop.
You know the Sixers are in trouble when they open their season asking their fans to judge them by effort, not by wins and losses:
" ... and management kindly requests that the team's progress not be judged solely on the pesky accounting of its won-lost record."
I cannot see the Bulls letting this get away after New Jersey. A blowout is likely but I'm leery about games like this. The cliche "don't let them hang around" will be endlessly used by Stacy King. It may be true for this game.
Is Andre Iguodala a nice player on a bad team trying to make great player money? Or is he a diamond in the rough? What would you pay him compared to Gordon or Deng? "The asking price was believed to be higher than the five-year, $55 million extension Kevin Martin signed with Sacramento." (Iggy's contract status).
For opening night it is Iggy and little company.
