It is hard to believe that the season is already half over. We are sitting at 23 and 18 with no Gilbert and no Etan. Hopefully we will have them both back soon. It is amazing what modern medicine can do these days.
Antawn and Caron both deserve to be All Stars. As good as they are as players, they are even better human beings. AJ is a 20 and 10 guy night in and night out. Caron brings toughness to the team and has raised his game to another level.
We have a tough stretch coming up. We are in Milwaukee tonight. Last time we played them Redd was out and we picked up a victory. They are a different team with him and they are looking to push the ball more than the last time we played them. Then we have Toronto back to back. We play them home on Tuesday and then in Toronto on Wed. They have been playing extremely well as of late. Then we have Utah home on Friday. Utah is a very good team that is very physical.
This past week we had a real nice win versus Dallas on Martin Luther King day. Then we were horrible against the Cavs. We were bad defensively and offensively. The Cavs rolled over us. Thank goodness there is another game to get ready for. Memphis comes into town for our next game. We beat them on Friday evening. We started out with our best quarter of the year, holding Memphis to nine points while scoring 30.
It is great going to Milwaukee to see my good friend Jim Todd. JT was up in Toronto last year where he was the lead assistant to Coach of the Year Sam Mitchell. This is JT’s third stint in Milwaukee. He has been an unbelievable friend of mine over the years. I have known him for many many years and have done numerous camps and clinics with him. We had a lot of fun up in Toronto with Bobby Peterson. Hopefully I will be able to catch up with Bobby and the rest of the guys in Toronto.
Carole, McKenna and Jessica (our nanny) are settling in just fine. Still learning their way around. They know the way to every mall and shopping area already. I know my way to and from the Verizon Center.
Thanks to everyone that have purchased my videos and dvd’s and logged on to my website.
Until next week. Have a blessed week
