To think he calculated all of that in the middle of a heated game. Impressive.
Not to play "devil's advocate", but I'd bet Donovan knew he was a big name even before yesterday.

Re: Think I am going to start supporting the Loyal

I am not sure I am buying the "putting landon's name behind it angle" Landon very clearly was passionate about this in the conversation with the ref and Phoenix's coach.

Yeah the head coach of Phoenix does not come off making it about Landon's behavior. I also thought Landon was pretty classy in his description.
