An Open Letter to No. 42

Dear Bonzi,

Thank you for being a beast in the first four games of the playoffs. I couldn’t be happier that you came to Sacramento in a contract year. If our friends Mr. Petrie and the Maloofs reach an agreement to bring you back next season, I hope you bring the same intensity. We love it. That’s why we chanted your name at the game tonight.

Please do not make us compare you to Jerome James next year. It would warm our hearts to discover this outstanding play had nothing to do with the pursuit of a big ol’ check.

Your pal,

P.S. I really wish the nicknames “The Bonz” or “Arthur Bonzarelli” had stuck. It would have been so awesome if everyone in the crowd yelled “eeeyyyyyy” every time you made a shot.

An Open Letter to No. 23

Dear Kevin Martin,

When some people said you should never ever see minutes in the playoffs, I defended you. I knew you had the quickness, tenacity and skills to make a positive impact.

Thank you for growing an enormous pair of playoff testicles.

Your pal,
