A Good Night For Some Great Fans…

I’m undeniably fortunate to work around this game and this team, but losing isn’t generally all that much fun for anyone involved. It doesn’t change what I do, but I’d be lying if I said the litany of L’s these last two seasons didn’t sometimes overshadow the many things that make this gig great.

Roller-Coaster Season Comes To An End For Bargnani

“[It's] logical yes, for us as an organization because the injury is still there and the risk versus reward of him continuing to play and injuring it again, possibly tearing it,” Casey said prior to Friday’s game against the Celtics.
