Since Rip Hamilton’s game one ankle injury he just hasn’t been the Rip we have come to count on, that’s to be expected with his type of injury. Hamilton relies on his speed and agility to cut through screens and pester his defender and he hasn’t been able to do that. Many people, including myself have wondered why Rip didn’t sit a couple of days to rest his injury and let it heal during this first round match up with the Bucks. Well, that didn’t happened and Rip has struggled, especially with his defense that worked so well against Redd in game one.
The good news is, Rip worked out on his ankle Sunday to try to get his rhythm back. I am expecting a big game from Rip tonight along with Sheed who has been manhandling Bougut throughout the series. It’s Back to business for our boys in red white and blue. Via The Detroit Free Press
One last thing, I’m still smiling about Miami’s loss and team chemistry, or lack there of. I said it from day one when Pat Riley put this current team together. They will implode, and it looks like they have been doing just that during this series with the Bulls.
Expecting Rip to have a great game, I made a new Rip Hamilton Wallpaper located in the Wallpapers section of the website. Available in Standard and Widescreen.
