Yeah, I would agree that he's lost weight. He just looks about the same because he's gotten way more muscular. If he can just get a little speedier, he could be a pretty decent defensive threat. I don't think I'll ever understand why he chose basketball instead of football.
Srsly, Doneal is ON! Who lit a match under his ass???
Ok, my CDR story: I went to a preseason Celtics/Nets game at the Garden with 2 friends solely to see CDR. It was the night after Midnight Madness at Memphis, so I thought I might not get to see him. I went anyway, though. I made a CDR sign and everything! About halfway through the first quarter my friend's grandmother died, so my friends had to leave and I had to sit there all alone with a bunch of crazy Celtics fans. Every time CDR did something awesome, which was fairly often, I couldn't help but stand up and start cheering. Then some townies from Southie would tell me to "go back to Jehhhsey" and I'd get all embarrassed.
At the end of the game I ran down to the tunnel where the Nets run back to their dressing rooms. I didn't get past the outgoing crowd until they'd almost all gone back in, so I didn't think I'd get to see him. But lo and behold, he was way at the back of the line with the coaching staff! So I stood behind the partition next to the top of the wall, yelled "Hey, CDR!", and held out my Memphis hoodie from my chest. He looked up, seemed confused, but then saw my hoodie and smiled the hugest, most sincere smile you could ever imagine anyone smiling. Then I almost burst into tears, which was weird but whatever. I just hope he knew I came to that game and braved getting beat down by crazy Celtics fans solely to see him play.
