Happy Birthday

Word on the street is that a certain San Jose State Spartan is celebrating birthday #19 today. We recently caught a photo of him sporting the appropriate color.

While the Black Mamba remains Moor's fave, there is another player arriving front and center in the NBA -- Boston's Rajon Rondo -- who is maximizing his opportunities in the current battle between the Celtics and the Cavaliers and certainly worthy of co-allegiance.
The unheralded 6-foot-2, 190 Rondo averaged career highs in points (13.7), assists (9.8) and steals (2.3) this regular season but has gone off the chain of late. Try averaging a mindbending 21.8 points, 13 assists and 8.3 rebounds playing the point in the NBA playoffs.

What excites us is that SpartanHoops sees some Beantown - SJSU personnel similarities.

Such as, Moor checks in at an athletic 6-foot-3 and 190. He plays the point. Defensively oriented, with a pass-first mindset offensively, he can score but prefers setting up teammates. His court style is of an aggressive, physical nature.

We see emulation -- especially here -- as a good thing.

Thanks to Rondo, R-and-R is now standing for much more than rest-and-recovery. Here's hoping A-and-M undergoes a similar re-definition.
