    I was fortunate to be sitting close last night. Got to see Hakeem.. Clyde... Vernon... Calvin...Bullard... the commish everyone pretty much just right in front of me. It was awesome. I didn't take a whole lot of pictures because I like to enjoy life in the now rather than through the screen of my phone. Also, had the chance to take pics with the fellas but they were being mobbed and that's not really my thing either. It was an overall great experience.

    Lucky Fan. Security person looked to be telling him to not bother Vernon, but Maxwell was more than happy to sign the guy's jersey. Spoilered for size.

    Jennings and Harden grew up together in LA. They know each other as well as anyone could. Jennings is for sure going to stand up for his guy, but its good to see other players recognizing what James is doing out there.

    Its silly why people (the media) discount the free throws James got last night. Oh he got 25 FTAs - doesnt count and the reality is if anyone watched the game last night - I cant recall a single foul that wasn't a result of him getting hammered on the way to the rim. Maybe there was some "in the bonus" type foul but that happens to all players.

    Lets say if you take his free through percentage as what it is - he made 11 shots on 13 attempts then he would have shot 25/40 for the game which is then 62.5% from the field - that is ridiculous.

    His attempts were a result of constant attacking to the basket. You could tell from the jump he was going to get his that night if the Rockets were winning. He kept attacking and getting to the line in instances where he probably would have made a pass in the past. He wanted to have a big night with all the greats there.

    Yep. Sounds like just about everyone just checked the box score, fell back on the stupid narrative that he just flops and flails all game and that was enough to know what happened in the game.

    Like you said last night was the result when a guy gets into the paint at will and the defense has nothing else they can do but hack. Why should a player be penalized because he has the rare gift of getting past his man at will? Makes no damn sense.

    What's the word on Jennings? Would love him in Houston if he's available. Pistons and SVG are all over the place regarding their players.

    Saw all the old players in the Lexus Lounge after the game: Here's a short video of Hakeem walking in before he got hounded for autographs:

    I met a few of the legends way before the game. I met Maxwell, Thorpe, Rudy T, Jim Foley and Eric Riley.
