Bobby says, "Danny and I know how fragile things can be. Our family has learned not to base your happiness on whether the ball goes through the hoop."
And, incidentally, the ball has been going through the hoop lately. Early last week Bobby played his first full-court game since Dec. 12. Sure, it was only against high school and college kids at White Eagle Hall, a refurbished bingo joint in Jersey City. But he felt fast and quick, almost like before. And he made two NBA-length three-pointers. "I only made two all last year," Hurley says, referring to his sadly abbreviated NBA rookie season. "So already I'm even."
Ahead, actually. Way ahead.
