Mr. Brook Lopez has been sitting on my fantasy basketball bench since I first drafted him. I've been waiting for this guy to get back for quite a long time now, and I think everyone else is feeling the same way. I don't think there's any coincidence that the team played so well against the Chicago Bulls, either; they were sparked by the realization that the second best player on the team (who has been by far the best player since before D-Will came for a solid couple of years) will be joining them within the next game. Nobody knows for certain how long Lopez will be hanging around with us with the Dwight rumors hanging over our heads, and Lopez has his share of faults that people can't seem to overlook (by the way, he's still YOUNG and will develop!), but I think we need to get a packed house tomorrow to show Lopez we missed him. It's a sunday night and a whole bunch of us have off on presidents day anyway, right? You could pick up tickets on www.stubhub.com for $1.00...I'm serious.

Unless you happen to want to sit in section 128, which is inexplicably $900 dollars per ticket. I already got my seats in section 108 for $5 bucks, and I'm looking forward to seeing Lopez tear it up with D-Will throwing him lobs, creating space for Brooks, and allowing Humphries to have his way under the basket. With the last season in New Jersey shaping up to be a mediocre one, lets turn the tide starting on Sunday with our all-star center back.
