    Mr. Tsai, can you tell Sherrif Drammeh to stop taking threes? That one time he thought better of it, he drove to the basket and got fouled. He drained his two free throws. That’s his game.

    Seattle should be called the Lumberjacks.

    Zigmars Raimo=Tony Akpan.

    Akpan’s game would have developed like Raimo’s had he stuck at it.

    Akpan could have given Haim Shimonovich more breathers.
