Player of the D.A.Y.

I would give this to Peja, but his 42 points were against Charlotte, so they didn’t count. Baron Davis made key plays to get a win for the Warriors, but that would make him a three-time winner before anyone else has two. That’s just not fair to all the other kids on the playground. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh put up big numbers in losses, but they were losses.
I missed my chance to give it to Michael Redd for his 57 point game cause that happened over a weekend, and once again it was as a loser.

Against a first place team, on the road, Redd delivered two key three point plays in crunch time. He carried the scoring load with Charlie V in the locker room nursing his shoulder. Michael Redd, you are the Player of the D.A.Y. I’ll be back in the office tomorrow and I can put more pressure on this guy to make the logo for these awards.
