    He's on right now with Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless.

    I came in I think halfway thru or towards the end. Talked a lot about Dwight and the Rockets. Bayless asked him how so many teams missed on him and he said he thought NBA people felt like since he stayed 4 years in college that maybe he maxed his potential. He went on to say he feels like he hasn't reached his potential yet. He said he wasn't the fastest, strongest, or most athletic but he knows how to make his teammates better and win. He was very well spoken from what I saw. He told them he usually sides with Skip more and Stephen A said good cause he was still mad about what Chandler did to his Knicks and they all laughed.

    I like Chandler, but he's nowhere near enough to get me to endure Skip Bayless.

    Between him, Walsh, and Noah we've had some great hair recently.

    I think you must mean Stephen Ahole Smith.
    Nothing is more obnoxious.

    I thought this was pretty funny when "Stephen A. Smith" followed the players around at the 2007 draft - especially when Noah punches him at 3:30.

    Smith's a blowhard, but Bayless is an actively malevolent force, an utterly loathsome presence who makes ESPN worse every day he's employed.

    He was always supportive of Tebow and other Gators from what I remember when I used to watch ESPN more regularly.

    VERY supportive of Tebow. I rarely agree with him, but I happened to on that subject.

    The thing I don't like about Bayless is that I get the impression that he takes an arbitrary/artificial stance (don't know how best to describe it) on many of the issues he talks about. I don't always get the impression he's being honest. I think its a ploy for attention and ratings. Hard to blame him as that's pretty much what he's paid for, but it means I respect his opinion on anything less than I would otherwise.

    Will "The Thrill" Y has some awesome hair styling going on now.

    And back in the day Haslem sported some awesome cornrows.

    And even further back we had Dwayne S with his "lobster". Pardon me, but a mullet is a mullet and even smoked it ain't as good as lobster. Sorry Dwayne (RIP).

    Briefly, that picture was taken right before he dribbled it off his leg.

    I don't think I ever recall a player so visibly shaken as Appleby was against Zona that year. It was like watching a train wreck happen in slow motion. Felt terrible for the kid.

    What? "The next Pete Marovich" nervous???? Yeah, I think he turned out ok at Washington or wherever he ended up, but he probably should have redshirted here, definitely was not ready for big time basketball.
