    Thanks, Thee! I don't think no one on this forum tried to pattern his game and associate more closely with Zeke than me. Plus, if you didnt watch the MARY THOMAS STORY, shame on u!!!:)

    When he was a youngster in Chicago. Isiah's mom used to cook a couple days a week for a diner named "Zeke's". She'd make large quantities of food, and Isiah always shouted Zeke during the morning walk to the restaurant. The place is like Steve's Soul Food......Assume he's still open. Mom was able to work there since it was close to the house and she could monitor all her kids from there.
