Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Whatever else you want to say about Lute Olson, his former players sure do perform impressively at the professional level. Jason Terry had one hell of a game tonight. Richard Jefferson was playing great before the sprained ankle. Gilbert Arenas was a force, even though he missed those free throws. And even Luke Walton had his moments in the series against the Suns. Then again, it is hard to believe that a team with those last three didn't win an NCAA championship. While I was writing this, Terry made an amazing step-back rainbow jumper over Duncan. Awesome!

I hope the Mavs and the Suns move on for the next round, making for an excellent high scoring & defense team (Mavs) versus a very high-scoring and little defense team (Suns).

Re: mavs/suns

I can't see the Suns winning that one, but you never know. Nash looks tired.

...not to mention, Adam, an intriguing match-up between Nash and his former squad.

In regards to the "Aftercats," Olson does do a superb job of grooming the quintessential pro player. In this respect, he's the antithesis of Mike Krzyzewski whose former players, I'm always happy to remind those annoying "Dukies," have the tendency to flop in the NBA (save Elton Brandt and some of the more recent Duke grads).

Despite the terrible season his team had, Channing Frey had an impressive year, making the all-rookie team. I think his name will soon be mentioned alongside the likes of Terry, Jefferson, Arenas and Walton, adding to Lute's already illustrious legacy.

I think it's because Olson concentrates on making his players better, while that Polish dude concentrates on making his team better.
