    Former NBA player Isaiah Rider was jailed Saturday for investigation of auto theft, police said.

    The 37-year-old Rider was driving a car that failed to stop at an intersection about 2:30 a.m. in the city's Skid Row district, Officer Norma Eisenman said.

    Rider didn't play on the truly nilhistic Tark teams did he? He wasn't there in '90 or '91, was he?

    Man, would he have been a perfect fit there.

    Isaiah Rider was in Vegas immediately after the team that the NCAA tried to let win a title (thank you, Duke).

    Ooooooh yes he did. His first year at UNLV was '91 - '92, Tark's last season.

    Rider spent a night in jail at UNLV when he ordered a strawberry shake at Jack in the Box, got vanilla instead... and threw the shake through the drive-thru window.

    Then Rollie Massimino acquired the headache. Love the class JR passed...

    Holy hell that's funny. Rider passed a class on PMS? Awesome.

    And while he technically counts as a Tark guy, I was thinking of the badass motherfuckers who won in '90 and went undefeated til the Final Four in '91.

    Awesome, awesome teams. And one of the most awesomest names ever, also:

    Moses Scurry.
     
  11. And let us not forget how thoroughly they got cheated by the refs in '91.

    Can't wait for the story in a few months about how J.R. has "turned his life around," and now wants to "mentor the children."

    And there'll be some bunch of fucking idiots who want to let him do it, and some fucking idiot who writes a story about it.
