Can't wait to see the transformation in MCW's game under Kidd's tutelage in Milwaukee. I really think he's landed in a perfect situation in Milwaukee and is going to surprise a lot of people. Time will tell.

Voted Larry. Dunleavy also deserved it.

Dunleavy pretty easily even though Larry was good.

Dunleavy played pretty much the perfect 6th man game. The shots he missed were all good shots, played excellent D, handled the ball a lot in a point forward role and made a couple of great passes, 16 points on 9 shots, not sure what his TO was but don't remember him making a single mistake.

Nothing gaudy about his numbers, but as a 6th man (or any man really) it doesn't get much better than that.

I'm voting for Drew Gooden. 1 minute, 1 PF. Lots of time on the bench. He's our MVP.

If Ellis scored 50 points, had had 50 assist and had 50 rebounds few to none would vote for him.
So I will. He was clutch through out the game. Monta...... U da man.

He was clutch and I said that, but he was one of the reasons that we were almost out of the game early to the lowly Suns. He wasnt making anything, shooting tons of ill advised shots, turning the ball over and Shannon freakin Brown was outplaying him by a wide margin. Dunleavy's shooting and defense was the only reason we kept the lead as small as it was going into the fourth, especially when Boylan benched Monta and Brandon for, well, sucking ass. Larry played well the whole game and completely outplayed the competition and then shut down everything in the lane for the last 4 minutes. We hate Monta obviously, but he was not the player of the game. Player of the fourth quarter minutes 8-10? Sure. The game? Laughable to consider it.

Yeah I don't think we win this game without Monta's stretch of buckets, but I don't think we win without MDJ or Larry either.

Just voted Larry but Dunleavy was equally deserving. Most of Larry's points were on catch and dunks after Brandon, Monta, or Dunleavy did all the work creating. Still played a great game, but I kind of wish I voted for Dunleavy.

I hated voting Monta, but we lose if he doesn't get hot late in the 4th.

Larry is quickly becoming my favorite player on this team. On defense, he altered a ton of shots and was a deterrent force inside. On offense, he had key offensive rebounds and played with energy, even creating his own shot a couple of times. People talk about whether we should pay Brandon, but if Larry keeps this up, he is going to be collecting some serious folding money. I almost turned the game off when he picked up an early stupid foul, but Larry held it together.

Voted Larry. He's really blossoming and becoming a force. And according to Johnny he had more than 2 blocks ;)
tank on, Hinkie
