reason # 2,451 to lik Shane Battier

You don't know it yet, but you want Shane Battier on your team. He plays tenacious D on Kobe, is a captain who is okay with coming off the bench, can use 3 syllable words correctly, is adorable, pronounces his name the correct way, knows his game and doesn't try to play beyond it, great team guy...I could go on. Did I mention he's adorable
Then he says this...courtesy Truehoop: 
Battier then went on to credit the Rockets' cult status among stat geeks to Rockets' general manager, Daryl Morey. "It's who we are," Battier said. "I don't think we're going to get the love of the six foot blonde bombshell. That's what the Lakers are here for. It's alright, I like our demographic." 
yes, adorable.
Another note- Glenn "Big Baby" Davis is catching some flack for pushing a kid aside during the celebration of his winning shot after game 4...kid's dad wants an apology. Half glass analysis? First off, why does the little 13 year old get to use the $1000 courtside tickets? Second, I can think of 15-20 other reasons to hate "Big Baby" Davis...I don't need this one.

  1. SoO what's the correct way to pronounce his name? Is it French? or Italian? Or has it been Americanized? He does seem adorable.
