Devin Harris went off for 47 points tonight. This is just the last in a marvelous string of performances that has to place him in the Paul/Williams/Nash point guard stratum.
You may recall the buzz around the Blazers trading for Harris last year with the Mavericks, prior to the Jason Kidd trade. All accounts seemed to suggest the deal was close, and I don't remember exactly what prevented it.
I'm perfectly happy the trade didn't happen. But every time I see one of Harris's recent performances, I'm reminded that KP must have known something when he went after him last year. And it's another testament to his talent evaluation prowess, despite the fact Harris didn't become a Blazer.
Anyone out there wishes this trade had happened? My take: there aren't enough basketballs, and if we need someone to score 47, his name is Brandon Roy.
