Elite Brent Urban Jersey The Giants honored Barry Bonds with a plaque on AT&T Park’s Wall of Fame Saturday afternoon, a fitting tribute for the player who won five of his seven MVP Awards with the team, and whose exploits helped get the stadium built.
So it was a perfect time for Bonds to thank the Giants, his former teammates, fans — oh, and to share his tips for how a couple can successfully make a baby. Really.
Elite Keith McGill Jersey Blame Bonds’ former teammate, pitcher Kirk Rueter, for bringing up the topic. Addressing the crowd at the ceremony, Reuter recalled how, about 18 years ago, he and his wife, Karla, were trying to conceive a child.
You’re going to have to miss games, you’re going to have to lose some money if you’re willing to make the point, because that’s how MLB and NBA got it done. They missed games, they struck, they flexed every bit of power they had, and it was awesome. It worked out for them.
This caps off the Warriors retaining their entire roster. Ultimately, this came down to an ownership decision. Were the Warriors willing to go far into the repeater tax during years two and three of this contract, or would they decide Iguodala was an expendable piece? The owners decided to allow management to do what they felt was necessary to win championships, and Iguodala was rightfully rewarded in the process.
For the Warriors, Iguodala plays an integral role in their scheme. His ability to play up and down the lineup allows them to switch positionally and play versatile lineups. Offensively, his ability to take on lead ball-handler duties not only allows Stephen Curry and Shaun Livingston to play off the ball occasionally in the halfcourt, but it also helps that he can lead the break off a rebound and get the team out in transition quicker.
