I don't know how to swallow this because I worshiped Dr. J when I was young.

    I tried reading a bit of this, but as a new father, I cannot muster anything more than an F-you to Dr. J.

    Great work, of course, by Friend.

    OK I'm barely into this, but this line made me cringe ...

    "He was a freelance dunker and she was a freelance writer ..."

    Moral of the story is: "Don't believe the hype".

    You're just now realizing Dr. J has an illegitimate daughter?

    1999 called. It wonders if you just discovered "Beautiful Stranger," too.

    That she's his daughter has been known since her little run at Wimbledon eons ago.

    But he finally spoke to her about, what, three months ago? Yes, I knew the story with his daughter, but I assumed that he had made contact. I always thought of him as one of the good guys.

    Just about the time the Dr. Pepper commercials hit the air.

    Has anyone heard the rumor that Magic has AIDS? I bet he'll have to retire.

    'good guy' is a relative term and in the context of sports it's largely a media creation. Dr. J has a flaw, so does Ray Lewis. Ray didn't actually kill someone; who did the worse deed? For my money Dr J did.

    I'll get to this story after I'm done reading the new one on Barkley throwing this guy through a plate glass window...

    Are you sure Ray didn't kill someone?

    Cause I'm sure not.

    And Ray-Ray has about 12 kids scattered around south Florida, too.
