This guy changed the game last night. He has successfully come back from his injury to become one of the true difference making backups in the league.

I remember the hype being through the roof for him, but that injury was just gruesome. Cool to see him claw back, I agree.

Damn shame what happened to his career but he's making the most of it.

Longest career of any of the Peoria guys, even with the injuries, right? Still only 29, has probably 3-4 decent years left.

I believe so. He would have probably made $100 million more in his career. His injury was probably the nastiest I've ever seen.

The "Meon" was not my beat. I actually saw him about 6-7 months after the injury. I guess he was in the rehabiliation process. It was the summertime. He had a sleeve on his leg and a brace I think. He was walking through the best buy on North Ave. I remember thinking to myself that his career was likely over. Of all the guys that I've seen who were the big point guard types he was probably the closest to Magic Johnson. I saw him in high school and his handle was fluid and he actually was a pure point even at 6'7. He wasn't a guy that you look and say he could play point. Point guard was actually his position. He was a special talent.

I remember seeing West Aurora vs. Peoria Central at Northwestern in '04. Livingston vs. Pruitt. I can't believe it's been 11 years since that game, but I'm happy for his success after that brutal injury.

Nas, spmack and Douchebag took turns parading me around the streets of Chicago on their shoulders last weekend.

We were definitely taking turns doing something.
