    Yeah, that's why people were upset with Pryor. Race. :roll1:

    Yes because I said most or all people. There were folks that were outraged that anyone sold anything independent of NCAA involvement. Hell, people here have been upset that recent former players sold rings and gold pants. I'm still waiting on the outrage to be directed at Hondo.

    Reading comprehension. Try harder.

    Dude, listen- Hondo has the right to do whatever he wants to with his memorabilia...that he EARNED through his athletic accomplishments.

    Oh, wait.

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    The grocery store sold me some food one time. I was very upset that they would be willing to sell their hard-earned food.

    This is conceptually the same thing that the players did that cost us last year

    When you stack up all the awards, rings, trophies.. there's only so much room and they start to take on a priority ranking...

    No doubt Pryor assumed he'd be accumulating NFL awards, rings, etc.. and the gazillion ones he had would not match up to the ones he planned on getting

    I look at the stuff I still have... and I'm pretty sure even my most prestigious awards and trophies don't meant scrap to my kids.. so it makes sense to sell things that have a value and would be of value in someone else's eyes and their home rather than letting it just be clutter/unseen/in a box upstairs

    It's sad.. but I understand

    StolenFace has brought the juice

    When I was a kid I had no idea who Havlicek was. I took my Uncles autographed Celtics Hondo ball and played in the alley next to my house with it.

    I still feel so ashamed.

    You should. It was a dastardly deed befitting a villain.

    Ed Ratleff was sick in high school along with Dwight Bo Lamar..back to back undefeated seasons at East Hs.

    MaxBuck SoCal, Baby!

    All five starters on that team played D1 college hoop, and three played either NBA or ABA. Absolute sledgehammer of a high school team; maybe the best ever aside from modern-day destination schools like Oak Hill.

    Don't get crazy.

    Walnut Ridge had a team in 71 that I believe had all 5 starters go DI. Adolph Rupp said it was one of the best HS teams he ever saw
