Rafer Alston Continues to Beat the Odds

The man’s continued success never ceases to amaze: “When you’ve taken the road I’ve taken – you’re in the league for three years, you have to go down to the D-League and work back up – you kind of see the tunnel getting dark,’ said Alston, who became a frequent starter for the first time when he played for the Heat in 2003-04. ‘But I put in the work and I saw the light at the end of the tunnel.’ When you consider that backdrop, it’s somewhat amazing that Alston will start for the Magic at 8:30 p.m. Thursday in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals in Cleveland. In fact, Alston’s ability to outplay Cavaliers guard Mo Williams is a big reason the Magic is on the verge of upsetting the team with the NBA’s best regular-season record.”

    Rafer Alston definitely slapped Eddie House and not Rajon Rondo in the back of the head in the 2nd round. (For those who do not know what I’m talking about click on that link in the first sentence). Mr. Perkins needs to make sure he types the correct things next time out.
