Jeremy Pargo, offensive maestro and passer extraordinaire, will be starting at the point guard position tonight, the Plain Dealer reports. Apparently Byron Scott considered slotting Boobie in at the 2 and giving Dion Waiters a shot at point guard, but he made the safe choice, and went with the player who’s averaged 2.7 points and 1.3 assists for his career. Ah, well. Here’s the link.
P.S. Seriously, though, I don’t want to take anything away from Jeremy. I’m sure this means a lot to him and his family, and I wish him the best.
P.P.S. More seriously though, CtB is fairly convinced that tonight marks the start of a hall-of-fame career for Mr. Pargo. The fact that Memphis literally gave Cleveland a second-round pick to take him from them will go down in infamy, on a level similar to when they traded Gasol to the Lakers.
Jeremy Pargo!! 28 points!! Cavs win!!
