    and two more comments by UNC Trolls so hurt by Battier that they had to respond on the thread about his award... Right on cue...

    13 years away from Duke and UNC trolls are still hurt by Battier...

    Here's some more information on Battier winning this award and causing all sorts of pain to the UNC troll losers...

    http://hangtime.blogs.nba.com/2014/05/24/why-battiers-teammate-award-matters/ two things:
    The men after whom the award is named, Jack Twyman and Maurice Stokes, lend a gravity to the honor that should not be taken lightly.
    The voting actually couldn’t be more different. That is, the players who spend the most time around the winner and know him best can’t actually vote for him … unlike those, y’know, pageants.
    That’s a quirk of the process, which prohibits NBA players from voting for a current teammate as Teammate of the Year. But it might actually lend credibility to the award, rather than reducing it to a popularity contest.

    “The beauty of it is I’m a 13‑year veteran, 35 years old,” Battier said, teasing. “I’ve probably played with 250 of the current players that are in the league. But for guys that don’t know me, who only played against me, to look at me and say, ‘You know what, he looks like he’d be a great teammate,’ that means a lot to me.”

    Somebody has to carry LeBron's luggage.

    9 minutes played with only 5 points and zero rebounds or assists yesterday.

    Good thing he's ssuch a "good teammate", because his actual value during competition is pretty much zilch.

    Another day another award for a former Dukie.

    The values learned from playing for a program that emphasizes integrity is priceless.
