A Banged-Up Wake Gets Started

Wake
starts the season Thursday night,
the real season, with a game against Memphis in
the Garden. It's part of the Coaches vs. Cancer event, and Wake, right
now, is more on the ailing side then the healthy. With Taron Downey's
appendix surgery, Chris Ellis' injury, and Vytas Danelius suffering from
tendonitis in his knee, it's a lot to overcome. It's also a baptism by
fire for Chris Paul, but it's also a chance for a Wally Pipp moment.

Hold the phone! Downey apparently is
not ready to be Pipped.
