I guess the team players will be wearing alot alot alot of  polo T-Shirts now that the CAA, formerly known to us as the Continental Airlines Arena, has now officially changed it’s nae to the IZOD Center, which in my opinion sounds as bad as the Ouicken Loands Arena, or Key Arena, crappy names for a place to house 19,000 people to watch basketball games, you want a cool arena name? I’ll give you one, St James’ Park, well alright, that’s a stadium but who cares? It sounds better; and this IZOD thing better not be a curse to the team.

And yes, Darrell Armstrong will most probably be in the team now, which also means, NO ALLAN HOUSTON, and Goodbye Mile Ilic. Let’s check out some thoughts from the guys on DA, taken from the team site.

Coach Frank

“Darrell obviously is a very high energy guy. His energy’s infectious. He can pressure the ball to 94 feet…he’s an accomplished guy who has put a lot of years into the league, seen a lot of winning. His reputation is one of an outstanding locker room presence as well.”

Jason Kidd

“Darrell is high energy. He’s a great teammate. Wherever he’s played at, he’s always been a plus. A veteran guy. He (would) make me the second oldest on the team, so that’s a good thing.”

Vince Carter

“He’s fearless. He’s not afraid to go block a shot, lay his body on the line. Plays hard, pressures the ball…not afraid to take the big shots, one of those types of guys. One of my good friends…You hate playing against guys like him but you’re thrilled to have him on your team. He’s one of them.”

An easier explanation would be Darrell Armstrong, even at 39 years old, is still a Duracell bunny on overheated batteries.

PG Game One in a Week, can’t wait.

(EDIT: ROD BENSON AND THE CAL CONNECTIONZ ; It’s just  BIG SHAME THAT WE COULDN’T HAVE ROD BENSON ON THE TEAM.)
