Can Gilbert Dribble With His Feet?
Because Reader Dan D has a lot of time on his hands, he managed to discover Gilbert & Nash Company Inc., a Wisconsin business that has been "guiding industrial belts, paper machine felts and forming fabrics for over 100 years," and also that has been "advancing the technology of suction roll seals for paper making." It turns out the company was founded in 1898 "to promote the innovations of Bill Nash, a young paper machine foreman at the Gilbert Paper Company."
It would appear that Joseph "The Ominpresent Beret" White of the AP has already tried the most intelligent approach to previewing tonight's game: attempting to get Steve Nash to say funny things about Gilbert Arenas. Well, that failed.
"He doesn't do anything that's necessarily disrespectful," Nash said. "I think he plays the game with a great spirit and he certainly is his own person. I think everyone commends the great season he's having."
Yup, "commendable" is certainly the adjective that has most often been used this year. Anyhow, the more fruitful approach might be to attempt to get Gilbert to dribble a basketball with his feet, a la Nash, but Gilbert isn't down with pre-game stunts, and I can't imagine James Lang pulling this off, although it might make great television. But I probably need to think of another preview angle.
