First Jordan now Barkley... Maybe I should offer advice to Tiger Woods too, from my days as a golfer.

I was a looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-lagunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

At this point in the lockout, sure, this gets its own post. But I plan to use that picture a lot, even when the season starts again.

It's a fun summer exercise every year at Basketball-Reference: Neil Paine uses advanced stats to both figure out the best defenses in the league (we knew those) then see who performed the best against them. Turns out, this Derrick Rose guy is pretty good.

I'm really not even sure what I think about this... ahh, that is ambivalence.

Thought's on Kevin Love's new look? I kind of like it, but it does not make him look tough. Nothing can.

Michael Jordan is the benchmark. But do guys like LeBron and Kobe get unfairly slammed for not living up to an unreasonable standard?

Ah, Retro-Ball. Where I'd forgotten this was the Ewing Finger Roll game until I watched it. Rik Smits' mustache is the hero we need.
