And finally, I haven't changed my stance on her play, despite all the grief I have received for "The Crossover" from folks online, and even from Swish Appeal...

All that said, I'll admit that Latta's move made me fall out of my seat when I first got to see it. And I was quick to point that out too.

I'll also say this for the third time. There really needs to be some dribbling skills combination between Hartley, Latta, and the Wizards' starting backcourt. Alternatively, If you put those four on a co-ed skills team during NBA All-Star Saturday, that team may very well be a runaway favorite!
