He made it seem like a layup.

Good stuff. More's the shame he went and turned into Terry Forster.

"He doesn't need the money," a Dantley associate tells me. The guard-forward was legendarily cheap during his long and fruitful NBA career, and he still lives nearby in a home he purchased in 1990 for $1.1 million, one that a former agent said "was virtually free and clear" of debt back in 1996.

 

"He's not going to just sit around," the associate continues, "and he just doesn't want to pay health insurance." Turns out that NBA veterans aren't provided health insurance by the league, not even all-timers like Dantley. Crossing guards in Montgomery County, however, are. [...]

 

On a recent morning I was sitting in a car at the intersection that Dantley guards, and just minutes before the first period bell was to ring, I saw him lunge in front of a running youngster, who was oblivious to everything but her own fear of tardiness, and keep the kid out of the path of a turning automobile. He went about this lifesaving task with all the effort he'd put into stopping Isaiah Thomas from driving to the basket or David Falk from touching a paycheck. It was as if the gods wanted me to know Dantley's not on anybody's dole.

 

Haha, is health insurance really that much of a nuisance to pay?

 

Glad to see he's being productive, though.  Back in his day, he was one of the best scorers to grace the game.  Never dunked, but had a whole arsenal of finesse moves that were awesome to watch.

Uh, yeah.

Dantley was a great player but jesus did I hate his game. Everything seemed to be in slow motion and he lived on the free throw line. He hated Isaiah Thomas so I guess he can't be too bad of a guy.

he's also interesting because he was born with one leg shorter than the other. he played with a special shoe (basically a shoe with a couple inches of lift). he was one of the first guys who really used weights for conditioning for basketball too.

Would love to hear more about this. Stories about cheap people fascinate me to no end. My ex has a sister that's so cheap she waited out a parking meter. I mean fucking sat there for 12 minutes until it ticked over. I mean, who... don't give a penny to the man. In fact I should start a thread.

"Survive and Advance" - espn 30 for 30. Brilliant. That NC State team was the greatest moment in College bball ever. I remember that game against Houston, but I didn't remember the run to get there. What a truly great moment, and team. A must see. The 80's were the golden era of college ball, has not been bettered.

No travel call on Lebron's clear 4-step confused.gif

The amount of players that put no effort into D is lame. I think Knight was more trying to break up the lob than block Jordan, and it was a good effort.

I know I think of hard D when I see Dirk, Petrovick, Nash, and Parker myself. Ed is over stating his case. His point about the fundamental is good his point about LEbron not so much, if Lebron came of age playing in that era he would have been used to the level of physicality likely. And a super fast, big, skilled 6'9 260 pd basketball player is terrifying no matter the era.

celtics have nothing to complain about officiating wise. couple of no calls and the refs gave green a pivotal possession after he knocked it out of bounds after getting blocked with 7 secs left. can't say I don't understand the call because giving Miami the ball would have ended the game and no ref wants their call to end the game if they can help it. but celts have nothing to complain about if that call went their way.

agree - Lebron is pretty much the size and weight of Karl Malone, who's only the second leading scorer of all time and played in the Jordan/Knicks/Bad Boys era. and Malone isn't as fast or as skilled as Lebron
