Jabbar was pretty much the best player in the 1970's before NBA became as big as it is now. Gotta be considered the best college player ever, NCAA banned dunking to give other teams a chance. Incredible longevity. Weird personality, standoffish and quiet, but probably pursued show-business to greater effect than any other top baller except for arguably Jordan (MJ's TV commercials probably had more cultural impact than Jabbar's movie appearances).
Not a Lakers fan, but even less of a fan of Hack-a-Dwight type basketball. How about, in addition to a team bonus, there could be a personal bonus. If any player personally draws beyond x personal fouls, that player would get to take best 2 of 3 free throw shots. (i.e. if they hit the first two free throws, they turn the ball over, but if they miss either of the first two, they get a third shot).
I hope that Pat Haden is calling Lane Kiffin on his headphones and firing him this very second, before the game ends. And take your Daddy with you Lane.
This doesn't seem so terrible to me. Given the quality of teams in the East, they can probably coast on D, especially on the road, and cruise to the best record just by beating all of the bad teams who can't score on anybody. In Feb. and Mar., get the defense together, and crush teams in the playoffs. Pacing is everything.
Heat have decided not to play defense until after the All-Star break.
This is kind of the point though. It might have been, as you say, smarter for Harden to have taken $55M and a good shot at a ring, over come what may. But what happens three months from now, when Donald Sterling decides he doesn't want to pay Chris Paul and the Clippers are looking to do a sign and trade for an affordable contract? Even if that scenario doesn't play out, if Harden signed the contract offered he would have been the Thunder's trade bait for the next 4 years....
The sad part is that they can pretty much just cancel the Eastern Conference this year. You just know that some day in late May or early June, we're going to see a conference finals closeout exactly like what we just saw, and that we'll be that.
Guess CIA will debrief him, de-brainwash him (to Estes satisfaction, not Carrie's) and double him back on Abu Nazir. Writers are better than me though.

Seems like you want to spend some more time at school and you've got money to pay for it, so that is probably what you should do. I would suggest that you consider other liberal programs besides 'publishing' which whether it is useful or not, will probably not push you intellectually. There's a very good chance that degrees in publishing won't really be any better ticket to the jobs you want than an M.A. in a more academic field.
