While my shooting sorrows continue (1 for 11 since returning from injuries), it is good to be playing again. After last night’s victorious match in Memphis, we proceeded to Indiana. On the plane, Greg Oden spied a photo of point guard Marko Jaric (above left) on Sergio’s laptopping. It seems Jaric’s skills have faded even as his notoriety waxes for having wed the comely model Adriana Lima.
Greg stood and intoned, “Alas, poor Jaric! I knew him, Sergio, a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy. He hath brought the ball up court a thousand times, but now how abhorr'd in my imagination he is. The turnovers! My gorge rises at it.”
Greg then took his seat. Sergio rolled his eyes and winked at me (which is hard to do simultaneously), and he began playing Spanish hip-hop, much to the delight of our mates.
