It's official: Shareef is going tonight. No word on whether he'll start or come in for spurts off the bench.
Here's the shakedown, though: This guy could make himself a hero by putting up 20 tonight. There's a freaking wire in his jaw! He broke it three freaking weeks ago!
Is there any doubt our other returning starter (hint: he plays small forward) would've taken at least two months to recover?
I'm ready to chip in for a bronze SAR statue if Shareef contributes to a win over the evil Lakers tonight. He could be our Willis Reed.
