so that, plus dealing with his calcified elbow, plus the mononucleosis which crippled his 2010 offseason, made me confident that he was going to have a nice rebound season this year.
this thing reminds me a little bit of when curly when down some years back. almost overnight we went from having a 'big four' to having no center, a small forward whose blossoming career got smacked down due to wrist and ankle injuries, to the PG and SG aging too fast to put the team on their shoulders.
fortunately this nets team hasn't peaked like that team did.
