    What no Booker thread?

    Good to see Booker go out on a high note. No points but some really solid minutes. Strong on defense and on the glass. Would love to see more of that the rest of the year. Being able to spell Melvin and Georges a little more to keep them out of foul trouble would be great.

    Re: What no Booker thread?

    Loved his second block when he stared down the OSU player. I think he let out a lot of frustration in that one play.

    Re: What no Booker thread?

    Booker's best game. Six boards in 14 minutes. Same rebound rate as Melvin.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: What no Booker thread?

    First time his mother saw him play in a Cyclone uniform. He was simply outstanding.

    The man deserves this thread.

    I was really surprised by his emotion before the game.

    Re: What no Booker thread?

    Fred gave Booker a lot of credit in the postgame. So did the announcers.

    Excellent body language all night long.

    Only foul seemed like a junk call. Just love that effort tonight. The man can play.

    If he had made that three, I'd still be jumping up and down. My couch would hate it, but it could learn to love it.

    I really wanted him to score. I did watch him a lot when he was playing, and he was laying down the law. Played physical, but clean. Rebounded, defended, played within the team needs. He had a killer screen towards the end of the game. Just wish he would have scored...

    Re: What no Booker thread?

    Because Booker only gets threads when he does something bad

    Great game by Book. Hopefully he keeps it up

    If he had floored that little troll Forte with a screen, I would also still be jumping up and down.

    Basically, I just want to jump up and down. I ton of that is due to Booker.

    Re: What no Booker thread?

    We needed every minute he played tonight and he came up big. I wanted him in on D when the game was coming down to it because I knew Nash, Smart and Brown were gonna drive the hole, the way Book was playing tonight I envisioned a few more blocks late.

    I really wanted that three to go down. He used to remind me of Bob Horry out there stroking the three.

    Even better would have been if he had hit that put back dunk that he ended up just throwing off the back board. It wasn't really close, but if he could have thrown that down some how it would have rivaled Rashon Clark on great put back dunks.
