Cup of Joe. We will not stand for this senseless hornet attack on Brian Scalabrine

I wish this column could simply celebrate last night's crucial win over Charlotte. But there are larger matters at hand. Last evening, your lord and savior Brian Scalabrine was viciously and senselessly attacked by a literal Hornet. While some might be hesitant to speculate, I full heartedly believe that this was a blatant and intentional attack by the Charlotte Hornets organization in response to the Celtics win and I for one will not stand for it. They knew, nay THOUGHT, the only thing that could dampen our spirits would be a vicious attack on red headed hero.

But they underestimated the heart of Celtics nation. We will rally together to remember the spirit of the White Mamba. We will not go quietly into the night. We will not vanish without a fight. PEOPLE OF CHARLOTTE - THIS MEANS WAR! YOUR HERO VS OURS! CAGE MATCH

A former Nebraska Cornhusker (and a tremendous overall athlete, playing football and baseball very competitively) Strickland played his first four years in the league for the Mavericks, who weren't that good at the time. Didn't stop me from remembering a certain game: Tuesday March 11, 1997. Mavericks vs the Knicks (a team I have always passionately detested). Watching that game and the show Strickland put on left an indelible mark on my youth. 12-12 from the foul-line. Amazing ball-handling, he embarassed the Knicks' guards Childs and Starks on multiple occasions. He was absolutely everywhere and lead them to victory that night. My thinking is wow, this guy can play!
