Player of the D.A.Y.

By Sam Rubenstein

As part of returning to a normal post-Vegas life, I’m back to handing out this award. Gilbert had the numbers and performance to earn it, but his three point shooting contest whipping boy Deshawn Stevenson played just as well. The nickname is Mr. 50, and the Wizards really seem to be having too much fun for a group of grown men. Let’s hope they get to the Finals.
Nash brought the Suns their sun swagger back. “Coincidentally” Shawn Marion scored 31 points. In the four games without Steve Nash, Marion scored 12, 11, 11, and 10. Steve Nash apparently makes players around him better. And that’s why he is Player of the D.A.Y.
