From Zero to Hero

This is one of the harder updates to write that I’ve done in a while for a couple reasons. The big one is because I’ve missed updating so many games that this is going to be one lo-o-o-ng update. The other reason is further down the post. First off, we played the Raptors at home

Bull Debut

Two games into my Chicago career, and I’m playing hot-and-cold. First, the hot, against the Mavs in Dallas.

My shot is falling like never before, and the Clips just got a good look at me at my current peak.

Still a Knick

Well, I’m still a Knick. I’m starting the season in New York, at least long enough to get my trade value up. Maybe I’ll stay the whole year – we’ll see. First up, the Heat.

Piercing Shot

It’s St. Patrick’s Day from L.A.! We played the Clips at Staples Center, and it was another nail-biter. I did pretty good, scoring 18 points even though my jump shot was off.

Close but Not Quite

Coach gave us hell before our recent game against the Clippers. We got the message, and we came out with intent to execute it – we just needed a little luck to win.

The Rick Daniel Era

nba2k11 2011-03-21 03-29-22-90

It’s officially game one of the “Rick runs the show” era in Miami, and it was a doozy. The team cannot expect me to match my performance tonight every single game – I can’t exactly set new scoring highs every time out, can I?

Wounded and Woken

Let’s open with this picture. Yes, I got hurt. It put me out for a few games, but we’re not at that point yet. Patience.

Rick and the Ankle-Breaker


We played the Bobcats in Charlotte recently, beating them by five. I scored 10 points with four rebounds and two assists with a turnover. It was a rather unexciting game to be honest, but the next one was… interesting.


We were playing the Clippers at home when I had a spill. You know how a good crossover can supposedly break someone’s ankle? My first defensive play saw that hit almost too close to home  Baron Davis shook me off and I hit the ground, only to get taken out of the game with a bum wheel. My ankle wasn’t broken, but ‘twisted’ was bad enough. I lumbered up and down the court for 26 minutes though, only occasionally getting criticized for being too slow up and down the court.


For being as immobile as I was I put together a solid game. I finished with  9 points, 5 boards, 4 assists and 2 steals with 2 turnovers in the aforementioned 26 minutes. LeBron and Wade combined for 45 points (21 and 25, respectively) so we won the game. We were actually tied with under a minute to go when I deterred a Baron Davis shot by rotating over off of Tracy McGrady as the shot clock wound down (Good Shot Defense credit to me). He tried to pass out of the shot but it went out of bounds. I actually spent some of the third quarter out of position, by which I mean I was stuck at small forward. Mind you, I was guarding T-Mac so it wasn’t really a mismatch (I’d been shadowing him at shooting guard since the ankle injury) but the concept was odd.

The injury could be healed by sitting for one day or playing through it for two, so I decided not to bother sitting. Bring on our next foes!
