Rick Friedman Reader Comment of the Day: "My favorite part is that time when Pau softly gathered 18 rebounds in the unimportant Game 7 of the Finals while Garnett beasted and snarled his way to pulling down 3 rebounds, destroying the entire Laker front line and leading his team to almost victory and an almost championship while Perkins dominated from the bench. BEAST" -- The Dude Abides
