Childress a game day decision

Strong word that Chill may suit up Saturday. even if it is only Willis Reed style it could be the emotional boost to get the team on top

Or, if it was to happen, it could see a sub-conscious drop in intensity and focus in the rest of the team because he is back ... something I believe more likely than a 'boost', particularly if he was to take the court, since there is no way he could be fit, or confident.

This doesn't sound like the right idea. Could just be Joey sending out silly rumours to put United off which I’m ok with... I think. I’m actually I’m not sure.

Um, Willis Reed wasn't a scripted ploy to give his team a boost. He made his own decision at the last minute.

Yeah we kinda gathered that, chief.

I don't think OP gathered that at all.

And OP never implied it was a ploy... so...

Reed wasn't going to play at all until a team mate begged him knowing how it would impact the game

While only yesterday they didn't do much training , they watched the replay of the last game as a group , courtside and Creek said Childress would not play ..

And Creek is a reliable source? If they were looking at pulling a surprise he wouldn't train especially early in week. If he does he'll get the magic needle just before the game.

All OP implied was that having your teammate out there could inspire you to victory. Nothing about subterfuge.

Hopefully he does play and then they have someone like Smith-Milner attack him hard to test him out.. If he is healthy enough to play he should be fine, otherwise he will be sitting.

If he suits up he gets a ring. If he doesn't?

Surely he still gets a ring, he has played in the GF series.

Would have been better impact if game was at home, crowd would go nuts. And I don't think Joey would try and play mind games, just play the best you have and see what happens.

Joey has just been asked for clarification on this and said "we'll do the best we can".

I'd be massively surprised if Chill suits up, let alone plays. Shorter categorically ruled it out in the Advertiser article today.

Joey also confirmed we'll do the best we can.

Joey's media ban is over. Spoke to the media today.

I'd bet that he'll be on the sheet, and suited, and if the game is clearly going to finish in the 36ers favour, and if there's the opportunity, they will put him on the court at the end.

at least thats what i would do in this situation.

Childress wont be playing. I went down to watch the open training today, and he could barely move one of his arms. It looked like raising it above chest height gave him great pain, but he did throw up a few shots with his unaffected arm. He's out. No miracle coming there.
