ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — How do you spell Zydrunas Ilgauskas? OK, fine, I just spelled it for you, but I did without looking it up! I swear! See, part of writing about the NBA and sports is that before long you learn how to spell names that some might construe as challenging? So Ilgauskas? Got it. Krzyzewski? No sweat. Antetokuonmpo? Oh yeah. Then again, ask me to do long division and I’m useless.
