I don’t know why because I can’t remember stats like some. But Frankie at the United Center against Arizona (best ‘Almost Rivalry that Never Was) came to mind when I first read the premise.
Am I the only one who didn’t notice how good of a game Ayo was having until near the end? I knew he was playing well, and consistently, but perhaps was distracted by Kofi’s sheer presence. Does it make Ayo’s game more impressive that he had that game without a lot of flash? That it felt like something he could just ‘do?’
