I mourned for a minute or two when Dan Dickau tore his Achilles tendon over the weekend
Part of me wanted Dan to take the role of John Stockton
's spiritual successor, and it made so much sense: an unheralded white guy
from some school that's damn-near in Montana
emerges from the shadows to dissect the league with almost machine-like precision. Bonus points for being a journeyman and playing for the Celtics
My hopes sunk a bit when he followed up a promising run with the Hornets
with a backup role, now a year on the shelf will squash what little momentum he had left.
I'm sure John Stockton is looking on worriedly as he tightens the electric semi-conductors
in his neck...
