I really hated this trade up until the moment it was learned that the Raef Contract of Doom might finally be exported, and somehow to someone not named Isiah Thomas. Still hope they trade Telfair, but, at worst, they let him walk in another year. And, teams usually have interest in Ratliff at trade deadline, so if it doesn't work out with him, someone will take him as a body to throw at Shaq.
The only man who could hold Jordan under 20 points a game. When I worked at Norfolk Scope the Tar heels.came in to play the ODU Monarchs. Usually the crowd was about 1500 for an ODU game, but this one was a sell out, 10,000+.
