Yes, Gardner went to Jeff. So another local connection there.

Oh man... I know it will be tough for him to get minutes behind Bayless and Mills, but man oh man this makes me excited!!! I hope he gets a chance to show his stuff and gets an invtie to camp somewhere too. Could you imagine Pooh on the Blazers? Oh man!!!!

I can imagine a lot of things... But hey, Pooh can't really do any less than Shavlik Randolph right? (And he's much more likeable than Sergio Garcia...)
