Marco Belinelli is Lights Out…and is Going to Shoot

You all know the timeless basketball adage: “Good shooters keep shooting.”

That’s encouraging—and scary—for our real life Italian pizza guy. Sure, Marco went 3-12 from the field last night, but my goodness, I’m convinced he’s going to knock down every shot he takes. For fans who lived through the Dark Ages (yeah, they’ve been significantly worse), Belinelli reminds me ever-so-slightly of Andrés Nocioni during his ’09-’10 campaign, but actually talented.

Keep on shooting big guy, I love your energy.
