I love it .... Joey stepping it up yesterday.

"During one of the timeouts, he asked if he could guard him," Triano said. "He said he wanted it so I gave him the challenge and he did what we asked him to do."

Graham, in the afterglow of the Raptors' second straight surprising victory, was matter-of-fact but extremely confident in describing his attributes as a defender against the physically dominating Magic centre for the final 12 minutes.

"On the court I'm a giant, too," Graham said. "I actually get bigger when I'm out there. He calls himself Superman. I call myself the Incredible Hulk.

"That's two heroes right there."

I knew it was a strategy!
If Sam was here Graham wouldn't have seen the court that late in the quarter with the game on the line.

Why? It's not like it never happened. If Sam was here and Graham was guarding any big man, Sam would be crucified over it.

It takes so little to get the Joey G fanbase hyped up. I can't wait till he is gone personally. I just have grown tired of being teased by Joey G. If I want to be teased I can find a few clubs that provide more attractive options for me. Sundowner and others.

I will gladly start calling Joey G the Hulk when he figures out how to finish anything around the net that does not involve dunking.

Then what would you call Shaq? Or Howard? Cause that's seemingly all they do for field goals.

Not only that but why would you want to finish around the net with anything other than a dunk? Seems the highest percentage shot there is

The Hulk has the IQ of a peanut, slightly above that of one Mr. Joey Graham.

Joey's actually got a pretty good low post game, but apparently there's no pleasing some.

Jeez..... even with a win there's still no pleasing some people.

Joey's still playing very well for the most part. Even though he didn't get the rolls yesterday he was AGGRESSIVE and took the ball to the rim at every opportunity. I can live with that any day of the week. He was also active on D.... and when was the last time that you saw him do one of his classic "Joey gets called for offensive bulldozing" plays?

He's just playing much smarter overall now.

I say good for him.
