Well I will disagree with you on the Elson front. I still think Oberto hurts the Mavs more than Elson. It was the first game of the season and Dirk played hardly any preseason. So I'll reserve further judgement on Elson vs Dirk till the next time they play.
And as far as why react. You are probably right. I'd like to blame it on the beers during the game but that wouldn't be totally true. Even your subtle jabs this afternoon were getting to me. I guess a Mavs-Spurs game brings out the worst in me. I'll try to act my age next time.
