    And that was a 2-to-4-weeks-that-feels-like-forever look on his face when he limped off vs Indy, so the original evaluation was correct.

    Enjoyed the link to Larry Nance Sr. not Jr.
    Fun fact, he made the allstar team every 4 years. Junior could do that too but he’s a little late with the 3pt shooting development.
