Reviews of Self-Help Books by Professional Athletes: Lawrence Funderburke edition

"Even for dedicated NBA fans, Lawrence Funderburke is the answer to only very difficult trivia questions. The sweet spot of Funderburke’s career—actually basically his whole career, discounting a sojourn in Europe and a blink-length cameo for the Chicago Bulls—was from 1997-2003, when he played 15 minutes a night for the Sacramento Kings to provide hustle, rebounding, and a breather for All-Star forward Chris Webber. Even though the Kings were usually a playoff team in that era, the cowbells jangling from humble, raucous Arco Arena through to bemused television audiences across the nation, Funderburke never contributed to any of the things that make the NBA sexy and awe-inspiring. Since his childhood Funderburke has been able to do things on a basketball court that the rest of us can only do when we are deep in REM. But against the best competition in the world, his contributions on the court were as glamorous—albeit as essential—as a faucet, function dwarfing form." An oddly entertaining read.

Seems legit

Ray Ray is here to stay

Love the signing, hate the rhyming. Damn, I did it again.

$534 million just ain't what it used to be.

Just loaded with gems, this. For the fifth time in four years, he’s listed his 13,789-square-foot country club estate located at 27 Eagles Landing Ln, Las Vegas, NV 89141. After purchasing the property for $10 million in 2007, he first attempted a flip in 2009 for $14.9 million. Now with a slightly lower asking price, the home is still 8,404.6 percent more expensive than the median Las Vegas home and 923.5 percent more per square foot. It’s also more than the Maloof family spent on the entire Fiesta Hotel in ’94, when they reportedly bought it for $8 million before investing in The Palms casino resort. The Maloofs’ success began with distributing rights to Coors Beer in 1937. From there, the family built an empire in real estate, sports and entertainment. 70 years of family success flipped on its head in a decade by these clowns... Hey, Mr. Ranadive! How'd you like to buy a home in Vegas designed by Frank Lloyd Wrong?

Jerry Buss Succumbs To Horrible Lakers Season

Because "too soon" is for candy-asses. A good basketball man, condolences to the family.

A dent in our righteous indignation?

An interesting perspective from Deadspin on the events that led to the last move by this franchise. I wasn't paying a lot of attention in 1983, but could those of you who were here and aware comment on how accurate the story is?

The Maloofs may linger, not unlike a rotten egg & broccoli fart.

Things are definitely looking up, but KCRA is reporting an interesting scenario where the Dingus family might end up, ah, hmm... I think the late, great Earl Weaver said it best. (Language is "colorful" and may be unsuitable for truck drivers or Quentin Tarantino)
