Chris Herrington/Beyond the Arc on yesterday's game and Randy Foye:
Foye was mediocre, which, again is no great indictment at this point. But even though he still has a chance to be a very good player -- an All-Star even, who knows? -- you only need to watch him for about 5 minutes to see that the Dwyane Wade comparisons are WAY off. This guy just isn't that caliber an athlete.
