Interesting combo of Rick Kamla and Hubie Brown. I'm really enjoying it. I can't wait until Kamla makes it big.
Pat Garrity seems to be Adonals Anti-Drug. Good shooter, not that great of a defender, doesn't bang much. Reminds me of Austin Croshere or Troy Murphy. I'm worried that they'll opt for him because he's similar to recently injured Tony Battie.
Adonal seems to be shying away from the ball and setting picks. This is also evident in his last 2 games. I think it's more Stan Van Gundy than anything.
Attempted reverse by Adonal was double teamed due to slow passing by a teammate. Sigh....At least he forced a TO on the other side.
Kamla and Hubie Brown say that Adonal will "really help them defensively". A good sign.
Adonal Vs. Big Z. Should be....interesting.
Adonal has a big brain inside of his big head. Also, a team guy. A real loss to the Bay Area community. Not only a fine man, but a true porfessional. They need his size and shotblocking. I could listen to this all day!
2 Free Throws made....rolling style.
Now, the dissing comes.
Brown: If he does that, he needs to compose himself more.
Kamla: He's no THAT athletic, is he Hubie?
He may not have found his offensive game, but Adonal has done some excellent hustling and rebounding.
Adonal is getting too easily drawn into fouls.
J.J. Redick still looks like a rookie.
LEFT HAND BABY HOOK OVER MARSHALL!!!!
Hubie Brown mentioned how Adonal played together with Howard (in the first 2 preseason games), and how it was an excellent formula because they both have big bodies, shotblocked, rebounded, hustled, and Howard could score. So it would work well for them in games.
ADONAL BASELINE J! INCREDIBLE! MAKES THE HIGHLIGHT REEL FOR SURE!!!!
Both announcers mentioning how good Garrity and Foyle are. Garrity hitting shots, Adonal Foyle "going to work". Could be a tight race.
Kamla: Adonal Foyle, on the floor, in his 30s, in a friendly, getting dirty!
Redick is improving as the game progresses.
Foyle BLOCKT Gibson!!!!
Adonal needs to learn how to DUNK, not make soft layups.
Adonal is also looking kind of soft defensively, but he's trying.
J.J. Redick loves it from the corner (not corner, but halfway between the corner and the middle).
Redick has some arguments with Adonal. Loser!
Bogans is not looking bad. Dude can shoot.
ADONAL TURNAROUND HOOK OFF THE GLASS!!!!
Brown: You have to go back to his early career....
Kamla: It's a rennissance for Adonal Foyle!!!!
Now the Quote about his offense has become much, much more meaningful.
ADONAL DREW THE CHARGE!!!! Way to reduce foulage!!!!
Honestly Adonal was looknig much better than Augustine, and Adonal had been in since 7 some minutes to go in the 4th. I'm really psyched for this season. I assume he played so many minutes because Howard wanted rest. However, I feel bad for the China fans who didn't really get to see superstars. Don't worry China, your time will come.
(Also, Adonal video highlights sometime this week.)
Other General NBA Notes:
The Celtics-Nets Game today was called at halftime when the ice below the floor started melting. (More Detailed Recap) I read in Sports Illustrated for Kids back in the day that it had happened once before during a 1997 Suns-Celtics game. After further research, I've learned hat it happens every once in a while, and is only some what rare. It still an interesting note, nonetheless, especially people spilling out onto the floor during the post game autograph session.
