Default Grange: Post Mortem on the Opener



I like his comments re:Kapono

Quote:
Jason Kapono was a popular guy yesterday before the game. He barely had time to warm up as he spent all is time chatting with former teammates a long sitdown with Bargnani and Rasho training staff and even media. My scouting report: Friendly dude; great skills one of the most skilled guys in the NBA, in my opinion; just way too slow. Funny though: Hes wearing No. 72 this year. Why? Its a rare number and Im a rare dude.

The press set-up at the arena in London was my favourite: on the baseline, leaving you basically sitting on the bench. Kapono spent his time in the end seat, so there was some handy chatter.

His observing the number of travel calls made by the replacement officials seemed a little higher than the norm: Dont they know this is the NBA? Paul Pierce is in trouble. McGrady, too.

Or upon subbing in late to in-bound the ball and subbing out a moment later: Thats my role, dont dribble, make shots and throw the ball in.

More Sixers news than Raptors news in there...

Interesting anecdote about Kapono though.
