Joy et pain
From Dave D'Alessandro's Inside Dish today:
Timberwolves SG Rashad McCants had nobody to take care of him after his microfracture surgery, so PF Kevin Garnett took him in. McCants called it "heartwarming" before noting that K.G. "kicked me out after a couple of days." . . .
The rehab phase of Suns PR Amare Stoudemire's comeback is done, and he's playing five-on-five again. You'll see him at the Vegas Summer League and then at USA Basketball camp later this month.
Milk and cookies, metal crashing to the ground; FreeDarko watches over it all, and smiles approvingly. Yes, a resounding Amare return is high on our list of priorities, and would seem the most obvious vindication of FD qua philosophy of basketball. Don't for a second think, though, that we're not equally concerned with the saga of a forgotten first-rounder recovering, whether or not he ever starts in this league. Even if it's only us and the Ticket himself pulling for him.
Call us bards of the microfracture, and these our tale's two most radiant threads for all days after this one. Their divergance is but a test of their ultimate unity, and our commitment simply follows from the strength that binds them.
