    Been waiting all year for this one...

    GO BOKI

    Through out the season I thought that Boki was going to be another wasted 1st rounder like Collier. But deep down I had hope and always urged for him to have a meaningful appearance in a game. This game he seemed real involved. For the 10-15 minutes that he did play he worked his butt off to play some nice D, went after boards, and even helped bring the ball up the court. The 3 was a nice sweetner too. Just had to give props to my boy...

    See you in Game 4 Boki, bring your A game, we got ur back.....

    :)

    Boki has earned some degree of respect from Van Gundy. I expect that his role will increase next year and he will help take some of the load off JJ. I no longer question whether Boki has the skill set. He has a good shot and can dribble well and get to hte rim. He just needs playing time to learn the ebb, flow and timing of the game. In the offseason, he will be our upgrade at teh 3 spot. We will focus on the power forward position.

    If he can learn how to make the outside shot with some consistency he will get a lot of minutes next year.
    I was pleased to see him being productive tonight.

    I have to say I was very very surprised and pleased with boki's play tonight. I was never that impressed with his style and shot selection, but tonight I guess I'm going to have to eat my words. His play made me see what other fans of his see. Let's hope it continues.
    GO ROCKETS!!!!! and boki too!

    Yep, It seemed to me too that his outside shot does need some work, Most people you can tell the shot is exactly what you want it to look like when it leaves the hands, but with Boki it seemed a little forced/hesitated. But nonetheless playoff experiance is what can get him ready for the regular season battle field.

    Boki gets MAJOR props from me. Cato also should get a standing ovation because he FINISHED the third qtr LIMPING and got a important offensive rebound towards the end of the game.

    Yeah i feel like Boki never really had a chance, what did espn say earlier in the broadcast like Boki played 14 games in his rookie season and the majority of these minutes came during garbage time (either a blowout loss or victory) from what i can recall. He plays with energy which is needed, the two offensive fouls he caused the lakers to commit was great. I feel that given more time, he can build up much more confidence and be a special player for this team in the future. Remember Peja Stojakavic slowly improved each and every year for the kings as he got more confident, now I am not saying Boki is going to reach the level Peja is at, but with the european players it will take time for them to develop. It would have been scary if we still had EG and if all three (yao,boki and eg) made huge strides by their 5 and 6 seasons repsectively while maintaing the backcourt of steve and cat.
    I am happy at the way boki played tonight and if he cant bring that hustle to game 4 it will be awesome.

    Now if he was able to just throw that alley oop down I would have just woken up the neighbors with my hooting and hollering

    The way Boki filled in for the injured Jackson, I thought a legend was in the making. But with the benefit of hindsite, he only made one shot (a three and important at the time I'll admit), got fouled and played mediocre defense. He was often beat by his man. Hardlu a commanding performance. He still needs work. A lot of it.

    Though I was impressed that JVG let him stay in when JJ returned. He also let him start the quarter, then took him out 30 seconds into it. I figure that was so he had a chance at some applause.

    Amen R2K. I have been a huge fan of Boki since we got him.

    The guy was great tonight in his limited minutes.
