The all day coverage you need to go into tonight's contest. We're just making sure you're prepared to drop that extra knowledge on the brosephs to get you another smidgen of respect.
I guess I need to start by apologizing to everyone for including a picture of JJ Redick at the top of the post, but seeing him in full on pouting form like the Dukie child that he is, I couldn't help myself. And now that I've done that, he'll likely torch the Blazers tonight...moving on!
Do we think Brandon Roy will play tonight? He's still listed as questionable which means absolutely nothing. I'm actually thinking he's going to sit this one out. I know it's against the Magic, but in the big ol' scheme of things, this game doesn't matter all that much. And after he mentioned to writers that this felt similar to his hamstring injury of last year, I doubt he'll throw on those ugly as hell, all-white, Nike Zoom Phenoms tonight. (Please prove me wrong Brandon and at least go back to the Air Max Rises.)
So with Roy likely out tonight, and Dwight Howard in town, are we being fair by penciling in LaMarcus Aldridge for 11 points and 5 boards (defensive that is)?
Back to Redick for a second. If he hits a fadeaway, banked, buzzer beater, game winning three tonight I'm storming the court.
