Was I pissed when I read it? Yes.
Was I shocked by the timing of it? Undoubetdly.
Was I surprised by the tone of it? Not in the least.
But here's the bottom line. We just set a franchise record for consecutive wins, beating 4 playoff teams along the way, without our best all-around player, and NOTHING that anyone writes can dispute that. JRich just beat out LeBron James for Eastern Conference Player of the Week, and NOTHING that anyone writes can dispute that. Jared Dudley is averaging just shy of a double-double during this stretch, and NOTHING that anyone writed can dispute that. Raymond and Matt are playing their best ball of the season, and NOTHING that anyone writes can dispute that.
As has been said many times on this board - get on the bandwagon now, because there won't be much room left if we keep playing like this. And by then, we won't need words in a newspaper to shed light on the truth. The facts will speak for themselves.
