How- ever, hc seems to drag a COul)le out ()i his pocket neatly whenever his W T teanl llet.ds 'CUl. I hate to ad:nit it but Frankie Bur- gess is a wonderful guard. Through driving an Avalon Taxi, Frankie al- ways "fares" well, anyway. Johnnie Botello, without me assist- ing him, played a good game.
