Resolved Question: Kyrie Irving, Damian
Who do y'all think is the best player of these three? My friends think Irving and Wall are better than Damian Lillard but I beg to differ. I think Lillard is a beast on a CONSISTENT basis for just a second-year player and seems pretty poised, not to mention his offensive game is more versatile (I think) than Wall and Irving's. I think John Wall and Irving are good players as well, but I think Irving is a little overrated and inconsistent at times and for as many years as Wall has been in the league, I don't think he's really improved that much. I'd like to know what you guys think and why.

Resolved Question: A quote from John
I need to know the page number for the quote, " When someone you love dies, and you're not expecting it, you don't lose her all at once; you lose her in pieces over a long period of time - the way the mail stops coming, and her scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in her closet and drawers. Gradually, you accumulate the parts of her that are gone. Just when the day comes - when there's a particular missing part that overwhelms you with the feeling that she's gone, forever - there comes another day, and another specifically missing part." It's spoken by John, one of the main characters in the book. Please help me find the page number? It's for an English paper! Please!
