a storied career to say the least
and highly respected off the court as well for all the charitable work he's been involved with over the years

NBA is losing one of the good ones

Was he ever. That interview posted here a while ago with a retired ref who said he would bring food for certain players.

I think they have moved on to a new team now lol.. raps are pretty good now, and since they made the playoffs and nearly beat BK, they have gotten more respect from the officials

what? how do you think he is the worst? crawford/brothers/palmer and a bunch of others are way worse.

He annoyed me sometimes, but he also brought a lot of humour to games. He definitely was not as bad a Palmer. Enjoy your retirement, Dickie!
