Re: questions about the lakers game
Well no, my point that I was trying to be moderately tactful about vs pointing fingers, jumping up and down to get people's attention, and screaming notorious Pierce jocker was that I *don't* necessarily want Pierce shooting 3s with the game on the line (particularly this season), although I've certainly no doubt that you do without your having to say so. In fairness, I don't particularly want Pierce shooting 3s most of the rest of the time either. There are other things he does a lot more effectively than that and there are others who shoot 3s better than he does.
And I hate to sound like Mr Niles, but the man's name is Atkins not Adkins as you keep putting it. If the consistent mispelling is supposed to be some joke that I'm missing, then I apologize in advance for my denseness.

Pierce was the only celtic to hit a three at the end of the game last
night. That was my point. I don't care about %'s, on this team you want
Pierce shooting the 3 with the game on the line. Of course that's just
my opinion, you can have Adkins shooting them if you want. Ultimately
it's up to neither of us.
