I never write in this journal anymore, but after tonight I have to.
In the rafters they were singing and Oracle was moving.
M. V. P.
Let the Bay Area bells chime out their love for me. Believe in me.
What a night. What an unbelievable night. Shouts out to Bogut for sleeping on his shoulder wrong. Totally kidding. Not trying to mix Coach’s words. Gah, we have fun.
I’ve never played like that before. I didn’t even know what was happening. I was numb, hovering over myself, watching myself give buckets to a team full of helpless losers. You always want to play well against a former team, certainly, but I unleashed a hell upon them that they won’t see again for some time. I’ll make no empty promises here that it’ll happen again at my hands, though. Andrew will be back soon and with that I’ll go back to spending time on the bench. But what a night. Nobody can take this away from me. For one evening, I was that dude.
It was strange, though, doing this against the 6ers. He’s long been gone now, but I kept rolling over something Doug Collins had said to me in my time in the Illadelph in 2010-2011.
“When the bow breaks and the cradle falls, who stays a baby, and who rises a man?”
Who’s the man, now? Feel me? Who’s the wild man now? Favreau!
Shouts to the fans. I do it for you. Since I’ve become a monster, I deserve a monstrous nickname. I propose to you, the fans, potential nicknames for myself. Pick your favorite. Put it on a T-shirt.
