    Speaking of Starbury, there's a nice article about his life in China. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/20...bury-china/index.html?eref=sihp&sct=hp_t14_a0

    Yeah, in the Chinese language, there are no words that start with an "r" sound, so the closest variant is an "l". And there are no words that end with an "l" sound, so the closest variant is an "r". That's the reason why so many Chinese get their r's and l's mixed up.

    The "r" in "ren" or "ruan" is not really the same as an English "r". More like "z" or "zr"

    Hey Foodguy, how about that Sessions fella!

    I found this stat startling, actually:
    I knew things were bad, but I had no idea they were THAT bad.

    Knicks got smoked by the Raptor's zone. Fucking shot 38%. Not good.

    Always loved Popovichs sense of humor.
    This isn't a joke either, it's the official sheet he submitted apparently.
