the link explains why Miller was not charged with a crime
being a suspicious person by nature I don't think that's the whole story
I think it's possible the Alabama DA had some interest in preserving the glory of the Alabama basketball team in their quest for immortality


I could be wrong - but I don't think so

Iíve seen all the Wembanyama highlight reels. He does look like heís different from any player Iíve ever seen. The NBA will be having a lottery to see who gets him. I think if I owned a fringe playoff team like the Pelicans, Hawks, Jazz, etcÖ, Iíd rather miss the playoffs to get even a small chance at Wembanyama.
Iíd trade ANY player in the league for him! Except maybe Jokic.

Heís different. I worry some because historically many players that height have chronic foot injuries that seriously alter their careers, but thatís probably no concern 7 years or so.

Victor Wembanyana is now listed as 7'5" with a wingspan of 8 feet. He can play like a guard - dribbling, quick and mobile, 3 pointers, jump shots with an incredibly high release, dunks without jumping at all. He is skinny but has a strength coach who is working on his physique. He has a physician advising him, as well as a top NBA shooting coach.

I can't remember any other prospective athlete in any sport looking as if he was so far above the field of current pros.

It would be ideal for the NBA if he somehow landed on the Knicks.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

he is very, very thin - he needs to bulk up before he hits the NBA - the NBA is rough - if he goes in that thin he's going to get injured for sure

Joe Pepitone, they called him Pepi, was a fun fan favorite and a talented player for the Yankees - he has just passed - R.I.P.

Dick Fosbury died. He was very influential in Track and Field and best known for the Fosbury Flop used by almost all high jumpers.

but his stats were very strong in '20 and '21

You people are pathetic. the NCAA wrestling tournament is going on now and no one is discussing it. The semi-finals are on ESPN tonight at 8pm EST.

Yes, my dad was a wrestling coach and I started wrestling at 7 years old so I may be a little biased.

Used to love that tournament. Got the wrestler roommates out of the apartment. But then stripper ads all over the place when they got back.
