    I have recently relocated to Baton Rouge for work and he came in to my work. Nice guy. When I told him I was bummed out it didn't work in Houston, I got the vague impression he agreed. I did mention that I thought he would it would be an ideal spot for him next year.

    When my wife and I watched him this last year I would always call him the Warthog because IMO he looked fat. He looked extremely slim. Not crackhead slim but just like he was in phenomenal shape. Extremely down to earth person.

    I understood his frustration, everyone sucked on defense yet he was the only player really getting his minutes cut and DNPs because of it. Yes he chucked but with no direction on offense he did what was asked. He even ran the pick and roll witj Capela well. Would be great under D'antoni.

    These players look differrent in person than on tv in jerseys. I ran into harden at Vic and Anthony's new years after the game and was surprised at how skinny he looks in regular clothes, knowing he's one of the bigger guards in the NBA.

    All these players are in great shape it's hard to play basketball and be out of shape
