    Default Free Throws

    Dear all,

    Who is going to shoot our free throws when there is a technical foul on the other team? Just arose to me that there's no Reggie anymore to do that.

    Jax would be okay. Other than that, I'd say let's try to pick someone who is likely to be on the floor.

    Sarunas if he's in. Artest maybe, he had a good % last year at least.

    Croshere Second Unit

    Jones because he's good and more then likely could be on when neather Jax nor Croshere is on

    My first option would be cro if hes on the floor, but that just seems unlikly. I would just go with whoever has the best ft pecentage on the floor.

    Cro I don't think will have too much PT. We're gonna be in trouble
    We don't have any clutch regulars. Jasik, I don't know if he's gonna be that much of a regular??

    I thought what we did when Reggie wasn't in the game was go with whoever had the highest season FT % that was on the court? My guess is that's how they'll decide.

    Jermaine is better than he used to be, but he wouldn't be my first option. Maybe Austin can lobby for more minutes. [Eric Cartman] But ccooach, I've the best free throw shooter on the tteamm.[/Eric Cartman]


    (Note to VA: I purposely misspelled "coach" and "team" in a vain attempt to convey Mr. Cartman's speech pattern.)

    That's because his shot has no backspin.

    He rarely, if ever gets the shooters' roll. The shot goes up, and it better be a swish, because otherwise it's bouncing right over the backboard.

    I remember when we first acquired Jackson, and were trying to think up nicknames; someone mentioned "Boing". That always seemed appropriate, especially on Jack's off nights.

    I thought that was reserved for the Pacer's second unit.

    "'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."

    I say Pollard. What else do we have to lose?
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Pollard was 4 for 4 from the field last night and even hit a couple of long jumpers. The Nets announcers said if they had done scouting for this game they would have known Polly was capable of hitting the 18 foot jump shot.

    That was news to me.....
