HOOPS: Thoughts on Graham

No date has been set for surgery for guard Zach Graham. He played most of the season with a torn patella tendon. Rehab will be roughly half a year, so a date will be set soon.

Hopefully there will be no surprises with the surgery as there was with Eniel Polynice that ultimately kept him out all of this season.

Graham will be an interesting case next season. He improved as a defender this season, though his scoring was average for a player of his ability. Part of that had to do with concentration on defense — the Rerbels immediate need whe Polynice went down — and part had to do with his knee injury.

Graham would basically get treatment during practice and miss time on the floor just to get ready from game to game through the grind of the season. Graham isn’t as quick as Polynice, but hes a player who gets to the lane and generally finishes well. Absence from practice affected his timing on offense.

On a team full of guards he’s a bigger guy and now has a defensive rep. That could help him get minutes next year when the hurt guys are back.

    Just this thought about golf:

    A golfer playing in Ireland hooked his drive into the woods. Looking
    for his ball, he found a little Leprecaun; flat on his back, a big bump on
    his head and the golfer’s ball beside him.

    Horrified, the golfer got his water bottle from the cart and poured it
    over the little guy, reviving him.

    ‘Arrgh! What happened?’ the Leprechaun asked.

    ‘I’m afraid I hit you with my golf ball,’ the golfer says.

    ‘Oh, I see. Well, ye got me fair and square. Ye get three wishes, so
    whaddya want?’

    ‘Thank God, you’re
    all right!’ the golfer answers in relief. ‘I don’t want
    anything, I’m just glad you’re OK, and I apologize.’

    And the golfer walks off.

    ‘What a nice guy,’ the Leprechaun says to himself.

    I have to do something for him. I’ll give him the three things I would
    want… a great golf game, all the money he ever needs, and a fantastic
    sex life.’

    A year goes by and the golfer is back. On the same hole, he again hits a
    bad drive into the woods and the Leprechaun is there waiting for him

    ‘Twas me that made ye hit the ball here,’ the little guy says. ‘I just
    want to ask ye, how’s yer golf game?’

    ‘My game is fantastic!’ the golfer answers. I’m an internationally famous
    golfer now.’ He adds, ‘By the way, it’s good to see you’re all right.’
    ‘Oh, I’m fine now, thank ye. I did that fer yer golf game, you know. And
    me, how’s yer money situation?’

    ‘Why, it’s just wonderful!’ the golfer states. ‘When I need cash, I just
    reach in my pocket and pull out $100 bills I didn’t even know were there!’

    ‘I did that fer ye also.’ And tell me, how’s yer sex life?’

    The golfer blushes, turns his head away in embarrassment, and says shyly,
    ‘It’s OK.’

    C’mon, c’mon now,’ urged the Leprechaun, ‘I’m wanting to know if I did a
    good job. How many times a week?’

    Blushing even more, the golfer looks around then whispers, ‘Once,
    sometimes twice a week.’

    ‘What??’ responds the Leprechaun in shock. ‘That’s all? Only once or
    twice a week?’

    ‘Well,’ says the golfer, ‘I figure that’s not bad for a Catholic priest
