The Beat, alas, does not go on
- Dang it, JohnH. One last column and you manage to steal precisely
the topic I was planning to address within the next week -- how this
year's "breakout" stars disprove the constant claims of how
unreliable per-minute statistics are. (I imagine you're as sick of
hearing the argument that they're meaningless as I am.)
If you're not writing for CNNSI.com, what are you planning to do now?
- You're correct on Nowitzki -- he battled ankle problems much of the
first half of the season and probably shouldn't have been out there
on a few nights. Lately he's been himself again and has played more
Dirklike over the past month.
Nash, I think, was just over his head last year, but I guess we'll
see in the second half.
