Patroons starting to gel. Michael Jenkins, played majority of second half, the #1 draft pick had a great game...had a great dunk the likes of which have not been seen since Jamario Moon and some lights out shooting, some 3s, great defensive player too. Shawn Fountain back after strep throat. Nat Burton still out (IR) and all 10 active players saw minutes, Fans got good look tonight at a well rounded team.
NYC played a solid game, class team and coach, not a bad team at all, led by Gordon Malone 6"11", Drago Pavolic (6"8" serbia) and Irving Moses, G, 6'2", imo (we'll wait to see what tale the stats tell). NYC a tough 3rd quarter but otherwise played very well. Fast paced
Sorry, ABA/CBA haters but so far, all teams have showed up and have put up a decent showings. CBA talent clearly deeper, bigger but I dare say some of these ABA teams would give many of the PBL teams a real run!
Not great crowd since not publicized in newspaper, just internet and outside armory signs and not on regular schedule or season tickets. Maybe 300-400
I sincerely hope that I was wrong about how the CBA/ABA thing plays out. I also really hope that something gets sorted out in the spring to ensure that the top minor league organizations outside the D-League are all in the same league so that last minute solutions aren't even necessary.
Are the Pats webcasting any games this season? I'd like to see them play but live more than bit too far away to do that in person.
