I heard a rumor that the announcer for the Durants said something to the effect of "Nick Collison is a better player than Luis Scola"... and if so, I'd like to present Exhibits A and B for the jury:
10-20 FG, 3-3 FT, 23 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists and a steal.
2-4 FG, 4 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 0 steals and 0 blocks.
Surprise, surprise, but Exhibit A is actually the stat line for this guy:
(and by "this guy" I mean the guy NOT fouling the hell out of the guy with the ball.)
Luis Scola is a badass. Live it, learn it, and love to accept it.
I just hope he doesn't have to be a super-badass and be the Big One while Yao, T-Mac and Crazy Pills all play with pain/injuries. Seriously, how can all 3 of those guys get hurt in the same game!?!?
