Did they check the local jails?

"Nooba. You know, NBA."
2002-09-09 02:09:18 PM  
Former ... NBA player. Former crappy NBA player.
2002-09-09 02:10:08 PM  
Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale... a tale of a fatefull trip.....
2002-09-09 02:10:26 PM  
Classic..moron, he was an above average NBA player that probably saved the Bulls in the playoffs...
2002-09-09 02:11:18 PM  

No, seriously.
2002-09-09 02:11:48 PM  
I'm setting an over/under of ten more posts before someone gripes that there is no picture of any girls on the SbB post.
2002-09-09 02:11:55 PM  
Why don't they just go down to Popeyes?

2002-09-09 02:12:00 PM  
was O.J involved?
2002-09-09 02:12:30 PM  
I don't think I could care any less about this...
2002-09-09 02:12:30 PM  
They're probably all 'dunking' in the South Seas now.
2002-09-09 02:12:31 PM  
maybe he just changed his name again!
2002-09-09 02:13:25 PM  
a) nice white-on-black text... the afterimage is still burned into my retinas, thank you SbB.

b) Bison Dele is not an NBA player. Rumors that he once was an NBA player are unsubstantiated, at least from this Detroit Pistons fan's perspective.

c) Seeing as how Dele is one of the biggest flakes in NBA history (he left over $10 million on the table to go run a water purification plant in Lebanon), it wouldnt surprise me if he took a left at Samoa and went to fish for sardines in Antarctica. then again, it also wouldnt surprise me if he's currently at the bottom of the ocean being devoured by those same sardines.

damnit, Nabbl, we gots to know what the biatch looks like, right?

i mean, c'mon, how many Serena Karlans could there possible be?!
2002-09-09 02:14:18 PM  
I hope if I am missing for months, someone besides my bank is looking for me.
2002-09-09 02:14:53 PM  
So what are we supposed to deduce from this? Did he kill her? Did the crew make them walk the plank in preparation for "talk like a pirate day"? Did the weather start getting rough, and was the tiny ship tossed?

I need answers people.
2002-09-09 02:17:19 PM  
What happened to the SBB girls? It was the highlight of the SBB experience.

(just for you, Nabb)
2002-09-09 02:17:19 PM  
She's not THAT good looking. Bison should've been able to do better.

Arrgghhh, I have a fishy feel'n there may be some Pirates involved here.
2002-09-09 02:18:54 PM  
Tarvus, that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. He sucked up a storm in Detroit for two years whole years before changing his name and running away to Beirut. Williams is a crappy former NBA player.
2002-09-09 02:18:54 PM  
The Pirates of Penance welcome you to our little corner of the world. Seriously, this has all the markings of a pirate job. Fish chum to be sure. Sad.

Iraq did it, I just know it!! Move the troops in NOW!!!
2002-09-09 02:19:26 PM  
Good idea Irascible but that's thousands of miles away from where these folks were. Not too many pirates in Polynesia. this might be a more worthwhile thing to look into. Tropical weather is surprisingly unpredictable from the ground. I've seen some major squalls come up in a matter of minutes, that could catch an unprepared sailboat crew with their pants down.
2002-09-09 02:20:29 PM  
Ouroborus just beats it.

Wait a minute....BISON?!

Call off the investigation! He's in Thailand fighting off contenders in the final round of the World Warrior Tournament.

I hope if I am missing for months, someone besides my bank is looking for me.

almost choked on that one!
2002-09-09 02:26:15 PM  
he probably just changed his name again, maybe to
Buffalo Weekly or something, and just forgot to tell his folks.
Happens all the time I hear.
2002-09-09 02:26:55 PM  
Truly a flaky mofo...prob will turn up and be signed by the Trailblazers for the 2003 season.
2002-09-09 02:28:26 PM  
Jeebus one retired basketball player disappears, and everyone is worried. Hell, why isn't anyone searching for the U.S. basketball team that disappeared from the World Championship playoffs, and instead sent some no talent hackers in their place that lost two in a row ?!?!
2002-09-09 02:30:33 PM  
I can't remember what his name use to be, can anyone help? Maybe there is just something about playing for Detroit teams that makes people go wacky. Barry Sanders got pretty freaky at the end.
2002-09-09 02:32:28 PM  
2002-09-09 02:32:50 PM  
Skinink We had the the talent to win the World Championships, but look at who was coaching, George Karl.
2002-09-09 02:32:55 PM  
Damn, I was hoping it was that Jason Kidd fool.
2002-09-09 02:33:39 PM  
Man, I have never been around such a bunch of jealous whiners! I'd do almost anything to become a sucky NBA player! If someone was willing to pay him to do what he did, I'm happy for him! Hope they find him alive, and he really is just stuck in some banana republic jail.
2002-09-09 02:34:24 PM  
now he sleeps with the fishes...matey
2002-09-09 02:35:16 PM  
Classic...did I mention his tenure with the shiatty pistons? No..go back and do some research on his impact with the Bulls during his year with them...okay? Thanks so will come back and apologize for being wrong..
2002-09-09 02:36:37 PM  
Hakuna Matata makes me think of another Disney movie song. "Under The Sea".

And ol' Bison actually had a good run with the Bulls and provided some much needed post presence when they needed it. But now he's "Under the Sea....Under the Sea".
2002-09-09 02:37:11 PM  
He used to be "Brian Williams". He is flaky:

Williams spent most of this season coping with a serious problem-clinical depression. In candid talks, he admitted that he felt a profound apathy and had gone so far as to consider suicide. For other persons with similar conditions in the United States, Williams's case provided welcome proof that the malady could strike anyone-even a young, wealthy professional athlete.
2002-09-09 02:38:04 PM  
Arrrrr the sea be a cruel wench. She'll pull ya' down and gobble ya' up like a dockside whore....

Seriously, the ocean can make you vanish completely. Storms come up suddenly out of nowhere and disappear just as quickly. Ninety foot waves aren't unusual. You better know what the fark you're doing when you go out on the ocean. I've seen derelict boats floating around out there.

Blow me down.
2002-09-09 02:38:08 PM  
I'd hit it... the girl, that is.

Unless she's a water-bloated, shark-ravaged corpse by now.
2002-09-09 02:38:21 PM  
I remember when he played for the Pistons. He was a weird motherfarker.

It'd be sad to hear that he died or anything to that degree, however. :\
2002-09-09 02:38:56 PM  
Whale Thanks for the pic. Yeah he might be able to do better, but I bet you can't!

Just kiddin. Peace.

P.S. I'd hit it.
2002-09-09 02:39:45 PM  
Skinink - They lost 3 in a row and finished 6th.
2002-09-09 02:44:39 PM  
The girl is an alien. Look at 'dem eyes.

I'd hit dat dere alien.
(Today is talk like a cajun day)
2002-09-09 02:45:44 PM  
He was showing her the low post move
2002-09-09 02:46:15 PM  
Yeah, Im going with the pirates theory. Unless she said something smart and he chucked her over the side and now hes hanging out with the locals on some godforsaken, lush tropical island sowhere (hmmm, guess that wouldnt be so bad).

Nope, definitely pirates.
2002-09-09 02:47:45 PM  
Why can't something like this happen to Rodman?
