Step One: Find "amazing shoes that allow atheletic prowess and prevent major injuries".
Step Two: Promote them so kids resort to violence to own a pair while you are crippled from using said product.
Step Three: Profit.

I'd cry if Kelli Ali was involved. In a good way, like when they finally killed that crazed rabid dog in that one movie. Old Yeller.

I don't care about basketball, or fancy sneakers, but jeez, give the guy a break. I don't understand whats wrong with him getting emotional over seeing how lucky he is and how hard he worked to get out of a really bad situation. It didn't seem staged, and if he was genuinely moved by taking in everything around him and realizing how far he has come good for him. He seems like a good guy.

They hate them when they are "thugs". They hate them when they are human.

They hate "them" anytime "they" have more money than them.

Being a Celtics fan, I'm not inclined to like much out of Chicago, but I do like Rose. This only solidified my feeling that despite being one of the top players in the league, he remains relatively down to earth and seems to be a good person.

Depends on which human characteristic they're showing. From what I understand, people are giving Rose crap because of how he's making a major sports injury seem like a life-and-death situation.

I have no problem with it, but I'm just pointing out how this has more to do him being overly dramatic than showing any kind of human emotion.

I didn't get that interpretation from it. I thought he was emotional and thankful because of all the support he had gotten since the injury from Adidas and Bulls fans.

Kicking her out of the band turned out to be a brilliant move, eh?

From here:

"Dr. [Brian] Cole, the Bulls doctor [who also performed the subsequent surgery], came up to me and told me it was torn. I couldn't believe it. That's the closest thing to death, the closest to death I've got to right there, where it just seemed like the wind and everything was taken out [of me]."

Not as poorly stated as I remembered, but it's still just an ACL tear. If Shaun Livingston had said this in 2007, it's definitely a lot more understandable considering his career was actually in jeopardy. If Rose rehabs hard, he'll just miss ~1 season and come back to a much more experienced team that will not rely as much on him.

Wow, were they nuts. She was the reason people listened.

Her first two solo albums are pretty good. The third, I suppose I'll give another shot to out of loyalty.
