    I like the fact that he made the SI “all-glue-guys” team better.

    Jorge I hope you get better each year and have a great NBA Career. My guess is you could also star for Mexico in the Olympics if you so desire -that would be a lot of fun.

    I thought Tom Crean deserved coach of the year. He took Indiana from the texting mess to a team who beat the #1,#2 and number 5 teams all in one season.

    Congrats to Jorge, a player with tremendous passion.
    I hope he can relax now and play his game. He and his teammates must be on the same page all playing as one to win this tournament.
