Player of the D.A.Y.

Reminder: We are working this weekend!

By Sam Rubenstein

Ben, Lang, Khalid, and myself are heading down to New Orleans early tomorrow morning. It is crucial that I remind you to go to this page all weekend long. New Orleans… one of my favorite cities. They have a well-known clothing store called Rubenstein Bros. Twice I have tried to throw my name around there to get free stuff, twice I have been rebuffed.

While I’m still on a Valentine’s Day chocolate sugar high, I’ll share some facts from my two previous trips to New Orleans.

1) Someone I was there with was thrown in jail for assaulting a police horse. I was on local TV ranting about how my Florida State Seminoles were going to win the Sugar Bowl. I don’t watch college football, rarely have.

2) My room key wasn’t working. I banged on the door. I was in the wrong hotel. Got to a meeting late, found out the speaker was… me.
3) Let’s do this!

Busy night in the NBA last night. Monta Ellis with 37 against the post-Marion Suns, but Baron came up with the key plays down the stretch. Amare missed a big free throw ending a streak of 36 straight. Wow, Shaq has been teaching him the game!

Carlos Boozer had a triple double, Dirk had 37 and 12 against the Blazers. 20-20s from Dwight Howard and Emeka Okafor. Buuuuuuut…

It has to go to Manu Ginobili, and yes now I regret giving it to him over Larry Hughes the other day. The Finals may have been ugly last year, but a Finals re-match is a Finals re-match, and Manu hit eight threes on his way to 46 points in the win. No revenge for Cleveland.

    not even a mention for Lamar Odom? triple double last night against Minny. 10pts-16rebs-10asts

  • Krayzie Bone

    Lamar’s game was good, but a component of 3 good performances. Ginobili went head to head with Lebron and outperforemed him

  • whooo!

    manu shot a RIDICULOUS 10-15. was it my imagination that hughes was known for defense a couple years ago?

  • whooo!

    i say ridiculous just cuz of the efficiency to score 46 on 15 shots.

    devean george IS the real player of the d.a.y.

  • nicole

    i thought the player of the DAY shouldve been devean george

  • tealish

    I think it was 15 for 20 because I doubt he shot 18 FTs. He’s no D-wade.

  • Krayzie Bone

    15-20 (30) 8-11 3s (38). I can’t remember the makes misses on the fts but he obviously made 8

    If Manu was the featured player on a team–say in Kevin Durant’s place–i’m convinced he could drop 30ish a night.
