What time is it? DAVID LEE TIME!!
That's right - our $80 million big man has been cleared to play (still a game time decision) after being bitten by the Vampire that is Wilson Chandler.
Sure, we've won one game in his absence, but I think it's pretty clear that we need Lee's rebounding ability.
That's not to take away from Andris Biedrin's big performance last night (28 points and 21 rebounds - see -RECAP #16: Golden State Warriors 111, Memphis Grizzlies 116- Not so Smart coaching = 1-7 without David Lee) but I'm pretty sure we can all agree that Lee's abilities will lead us to victory.
And after the jump, I got 3 reasons why David Lee is one of the best players in basketball, nay, roughest toughest NBA player out there!
1. David Lee counted to infinity - twice.
Betcha didn't know he was a scholar, did you? Wha'd he do in college? Not only was he a monster on the ball court, but he excelled in his coursework. I once asked him...
"What do you get when you average 20 points and 11 boards in the 2009-2010 season?"
His answer -
"David Lee. "
Do the math yo.
2. When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks for David Lee.
Yes, David Lee's Kryptonite might be a Vampire named Wilson Chandler, but that doesn't mean he's still not a monster to every other NBA PF.
Where's that potential now?
