Both Morris brothers doing very well, and way to go for Nick & Kirk, 10+ years of production in the NBA as solid & dependable players. And T-Rob, very respectable numbers for just 15 minutes of play...he's getting better and getting more playing time. Keep it up! My favorite team in the NBA? Anyone that's got a former Jayhawk!

Totally agree, my wife and I have watched a lot of Suns, Blazers, Kings, Pelicans and Knicks games this season. Our fave' team the Suns because of the way they play 'run and gun'. It's going to be interesting to see where Andrew and maybe JoJo finish up, but safe to say we will be renewing our NBA ticket. RCJH
