    Had to have a bit of the chuckle reading the post SL championship match wrap ups. Jerian Grant played 1 great game for the tournament and now Phil should be spitting chips for what he gave up. I think most of us were disappointed we didn’t hang on to Grant and that most project Grant to become at least a solid reserve PG but lets not count the chickens before they hatch on this one. I hope he does well, but how much weight do you give SL numbers?

    Willy G. looked good in his game yesterday! I think he’s going to help us even without stats.
