Got the e-mail. Thanks.

@Pookeyguru

Pookey! Thanks for stopping by. Yeah, can't wait for the playoffs to get started.

@KSB

I'll try to hit up the Daily Dime chats on occasion. I have a real busy schedule but I'll do my best to drop by and chat a few times a week. I appreciate the warm welcome, by the way.

Hey Eddy... Congrats on your landing this gig - great job, but well deserved. Question: are you going to join some of the others on TrueHoop on the Daily Dime Live? We Magic fans could use your pro-Magic perspective on there. They are not given the credit they deserve on their as much as they should, if you ask me...

Looking forward to reading this site Eddy. Should be a fun time throughout the playoffs. Congrats on the jump up.

@Eddy Rivera:: He's had a rough year in terms of playing time with Lou Williams emerging early and Allen Iverson coming in and disrupting the rotations and such. Since the line-ups have been settled, he's found a bit of a rhythm. Though he hasn't taken a lot of shots from deep, I was surprised to see him in the top 25 in 3PT % at just a tad below 40%. Plus, he hasn't even began to tap into his defensive potential.

Also, I sent you an e-mail Eddy. Welcome.

Yeah, Jrue's numbers aren't sterling but he's definitely shown flashes of brilliance. I was impressed with him when the Magic played the Sixers in Philly in the beginning of March so yeah, Nelson's matchup with Holiday will be interesting to watch tonight.

It will be interesting to see how Nelson handles Jrue assuming he plays most of the game. Holiday is taller and perhaps quicker and he has shown a lot of ability of late. I think he'll develop into quite the player in this league.
