before the draft.
His translated shooting numbers weren't particularly good, but he
showed up as a solid rebounder and ballhandler with a lot of assists.
Daniels also played well in summer league, which doesn't necessarily
mean anything but is a much better sign than playing poorly.
- 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.
