    Default The Girl and the Raptor Part 2

    Hey guys,

    Wasn't it great. His daughter was just so...real..and Amir...just so honest. I bet she could interview every star out there and get amazing stuff from them.

    She could have a career there. Ber interesting to see if she can follow up with pieces on other players, and would be interesting to see how they react to her questions.

    Great piece. Thanks for sharing Craig.

    As for Amir ... what a guy. He never ceases to impress me.

    Amir has to be the most likeable guy on the team, perhaps ever.

    I put him right up there with AP.
    They're both so personable and open to the fans and media alike.

    Yeah, AP wasn't here as long and seemed more quiet. Both seem super nice, but Amir really seems to have that great out-going personality while AP was a bit more quiet, reserved type.

    Completely agree. AP did very little talking off the court, but plenty ON the court. Lol And when he did take time to do interviews and the like, there isn't anybody I'd rather listen to talk about the game.

    Fantastic piece! It's nice to see one of this country's better sports-writers (and I don't say that lightly; I have enormous respect for Dave Bidini) write this style of piece about a basketball player. Usually only hockey and occasionally baseball get that sort of treatment.

    Thought this was going to be erotic fiction. Disappointing.
