40% of the active NBA players, by one authors count, have been accused of a felony or convicted of one Does this author wear a white bedsheet on his head by any chance? Lots of people commit or are charged with crimes. Some are rich, some are poor. Some are pro athletes, most are not. Yawn.

PassingJudgementOnThe PersonalLivesOfPeopleYou'veNeverMetFilter is two sites to the right- this one is SportsFilter. There is no credible evidence that Kobe "forced" Shaq out either- all that is gossip that has become accepted as truth because it sounds like a good story. Mitch Kupchak is a jackass who wouldn't give Shaq a new contract. And the Lakers could have easily won 4 out 5 titles and kept the dynasty going if they had signed one young, athletic player who wanted to contribute- rather than old, slow and egotistical Malone and Payton. And for God's sake, the man forced out Phil Jackson and then seriously considered offering the job to Mike Kryshewski!

My program beat Duke 3 out of the last 4 times. My program beat Duke the last time they played for the conference title. My program won the national title in 2002, or one year more recently than Duke. See if you can guess my program? Sincerely, Hater witn an IQ of about 3

I actually dont get why the Steeler who hit him isnt charged with assault and battery. If I see someone committing "misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct while intoxicated and criminal trespassing" on the street, I either a) dont care or b) call a cop or at most c) peacefully restrain him until a cop arrives. I dont physically assault him, (from behind no less) especially if I am 3 times his size and wearing a potentially deadly helmet. But just because this guy violated the "sacred turf" of a football field it's perfectly OK? Just playing devil's advocate here.

so I'm guessing Duke took about 1768 charges and got called for maybe... 3 blocks?

The pass interference rule is just silly and needs to change. Minor pass interference (hand check, incidental bump) should be 5 yards and a first down. Major (tackling the guy b/c he beat you) should be spot of the foul. its just gotten silly where people chuck the ball up and hope for a flag.

interesting thing about golf, and all sports that have tournaments. Only one person can win each event. A lot of players never win, regardless of their sex or age. Should they stop playing too?

I'll take him on the Lakers in a heartbeat. I liked him just fine at Maryland- he played out of his mind. He did highlight one of the few flaws in Gary Williams' coaching approach- his stubborn insistence that a point guard is not a "real" point or is somehow not playing the position right if he scores points. I certainly preferred watching him over Steve Blake's "nightly fiesta of forced bounce passes into the post."

The Ravens need to trade up and get this guy. Anybody want Jamal Lewis?

from the article: or, as Hemingway’s Jake Barnes said, isn’t it pretty to think so? I read that book in 9th grade English too. But I get your point: you're the New Yorker, and you're not about to stop being pretentious just because you're talking about sports.

What these guys lacked in size they made up in heart. They also took it one game at a time and put their faith in God. The whole point of pro athletics is that these people are exceptional enough to be the very best at what they do. if that doesnt appeal to you, go watch a game at your local park, or play yourself for that matter.

well put. the other thing is the bullshit about the lawsuit and him "quitting school." The thing is, he was over 18, an adult by any legal definition (why anyone would ever call a 22 year old a "boy" or "kid" is beyond me)- he wanted a job he was qualified to do and could have made a lot of money at, and the NFL denied him the job on the basis of age and tried to say it was for his own good- and look where he is now. Why anyone would endorse this moronic age discrimination is beyond me.
