Jameer Nelson going to the Second Round
Jameer Nelson was reported telling Derrick Rose that he will be catching him in the second round. With the Atlanta Hawks eliminating the Orlando Magic, Nelson can eat his words, or should he? Atlanta Hawks PR man, Arthur Triche, decided to make good on Jameer’s statement and reserve two tickets to Game 1 in Chicago for him. Triche said the following on twitter:
“Things that make me happy about this job. Taking a page out of Jerry Glanville’s book, I think I’ll follow through on Jameer’s request to catch Derrick Rose in the 2nd round.”
The Hawks didn’t let the joke get in the way of their basketball, winning Game 1 103-95. Like the Oklahoma City Thunder the Bulls will have to just come back in Game 2 and play better. To trouble the Bulls even more the reported MVP turned his ankle in the final seconds of the game.
