Prayer WARRIORS, no less.  I think that instead of shutting their eyes real tight when they pray, they slit someones throat instead to make sure the prayer really works.  That's an old Aztec secret.

From memory back in the classic Seattle Sonics lineup days it was Slick Watts and Downtown Freddie Brown and the unrelated Johnsons JJ and DJ and Sikma and Gus Williams and player coach Lenny Wilkins

Pretty good, but a little bit of era conflation there... Wilkens was a player-coach before any of those players arrived (early 70s, the Spencer Haywood era). He was a full-time coach when they won the championship in '79. Williams essentially replaced Watts, who was in decline; they overlapped for half a season before Watts was traded to New Orleans in midseason before the team's first Finals appearance in '78.

/don't forget Lonnie Shelton and an effective late-career Paul Silas

It's true: God really doesn't have time for you unless you bring a minimum number of souls into the effort. He's a busy dude.

And yet, I suspect the earnest prayer of five year old child at bedtime is heard loud and clear.

His son Tony was a hell of a good college basketball player.  We all thought he would get a chance to follow in his dad's footsteps, but he didn't get drafted.  Tony is a school superintendent now and is doing well.

/Get well, Slick
