I'm probably in the minority here, but the Lakers had to do something to unload Mosgov (or Deng) in order to make a run at a max player (or two). Russell was their most expendable asset considering they had Lonzo Ball sitting right there at 2. You add in the crap Russell had done to poison the locker room and the deal looks even more understandable. Lonzo Ball is for real. I couldn't care less about what his dad says, if the kid can play - you won't be hearing from the dad much longer. See Earl Woods about Tiger, or Richard Williams about Venus and Serena. Both dads talked a lot of shit coming in, but the kids play overwhelmingly drowned out the noise. Same will happen for Lonzo.

Jack is the Bill Russell of golf. Undisputedly the best when it comes to performing in the majors. Nobody will touch his major wins - nor his major 2nd place finishes.

Tiger Woods is the Michael Jordan of golf. Undisputedly the most electrifying, dominant, and spectacular player in a newer era of golf - who refused to go down in his prime. Tiger Woods owns virtually every other relevant golf record outside of major wins or 2nds (youngest to win grand slam, largest margin of victories, etc, etc, etc). 

This was an enjoyable debate about a decade ago. Now, it's time to leave them alone to their own individual greatness. Love the golf thread, tho - there are a few of us here who are all the way in on the links...

Both Craft and Q's game winning shots are framed and hanging in my Buckeye Room. Great memories.

I think Jamar Butler hit a dagger to clinch the B1G when they were @MSU back in the 05-06 season. Not top 5 by any means, but honorable mention.

Anybody find it odd that the staff can get away with keeping the fact he quit the team a month ago under wraps? When would we have found this out - had he not gotten in trouble last night? That's odd to me.

As far as the program goes, it has literally figuratively fallen off a cliff...

None taken B, +1.

Would love to provide more context to my OP, but I caught myself lol. Truth is, the scenario I'm talking about (may or may not be smack in the middle of) has some pretty striking similarities to the dispatch article I read - and honestly, closer to apples to apples than you would probably believe. All good, though - I find it all fascinating.

FWIW, My comment mostly revolves around how quickly Retchin would step down - just days after the letter. The situation I'm comparing it to likely will result with the same ending as it did at Wexner - just no where near as swift, and not without a fight - with months of political warfare lol.

Private sector sure doesn't seem to work that way. If my peers and I went to the CEO and board of Directors and expressed our lack of confidence in our boss, it would only start a shitstorm - mostly on us. Maybe I need to find another job...
