Aka, my new name for the Dude. He reminds me of Francis Townsend, the current spokeswoman for Homeland Security, who declared last month: "We're winning the war in Iraq." When pressed how she knew that, she said: "Because I know we're going to be winning the war in the future." In other words, I can apparently say Neal's President of the United States, because I know he's going to be President in the future. It's a fantastic and fun ability to turn a phrase that I think she shares with the Human Hyperbole and his "upset" nonsense. Compare the statements of the Human Hyperbole with the statements of someone who might know a little more:
"It's pretty frustrating to lose when you play well like that," McGrady said. "They're a great team, we knew that. That's why I attacked early. But it wasn't enough. We still have a ways to go before we catch up to this team."
You can make fun of Devean George all you want, but he embodies why the Mavs are the best team in the league right now -- their 8th or 9th man has the ability to turn a game around on both offense and defense. Somehow I don't see Chuck Hayes or John Lucas doing the same.
