Kareem, you are a scholar and a gentleman.

/I think you're the greatest, but my dad says you don't work hard enough on defense.

Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes.

/Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was in that movie because the pay was enough to buy an oriental rug he wanted

I think it's time to go back to your seat now, Joey.

How did I know this would immediately turn into an Airplane thread?

You like gladiators, Billy?

Can't believe I screwed that up. Been a long day.

Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?

Here is my advice.

(1) Be born rich. If you can't be born rich be born to (2) parents who like you. If you can't be born rich or be born to parents who like you then your are (3) farked.

That was...a lot better than expected.

Kareem is an asshole, always has been. That's why he had to campaign for his own statue outside Staples and he's had a hard time getting a basketball job for the past 2 decades. Nobody likes him.

Kareem is teh smartz, I saw him rock Celebrity Jeopardy. Now Barkley, on the other hand... (There is full video of that episode on a .ru site but I can't seem to find it now.)

Perhaps, but he's not wrong.

14. Find heroes to copy.

There are so many worthwhile people to look up to and try to emulate. People from history. Even characters in books and movies. The trick is in picking the right people for the right reasons. Skip most sports, music, and movie/TV celebrities. It's not that they aren't nice people, but the fact that they're successful and make a lot of money doesn't make them wise. Often, it's just the opposite. They pursued fame and glory so single-mindedly that they have no other interests and minimal education. Many are woefully misinformed about current events, yet at the same time frequently offering their weak, misinformed opinions. Don't make the mistake of believing that just because a person can act or sing, he or she also has valuable insights into politics or culture. Find heroes-real or fictional-that embody the values that you want to have, not the bank account.

i appreciate that he said no less than a couple of times that even his advice should be doubted... i usually throw in some outs whenever i give advice (unless it's legal advice that I'm paid to give, but that's different... that's easy, life advice is something else)
