For those who pay attention to such things, Earl Boykins signed with the Charlotte Bobcats today.
Personally, I’ve always like Earl Boykins. Granted, there were sometimes, especially when he first appeared in the NBA, where I thought I was watching Spud Webb or Muggsy Bogues, but then once I figured out there were three vertically challenged people in the NBA, I grew to like the minature Mr. Boykins. And now he is playing in the same city that made Bogues famous.
Little known fact: did you know the 5′5 Boykins has as more rebounds in his career (702) than 7′3 Keith Closs (372), 7′5 Pavel Podkolzin (9), 7′3 Aleksandar Radojevic (36), 7′3 Peter Ramos (4), and 7′9 Sun Ming Ming (0) combined! Another little known fact: Spud Webb had only 215 less rebounds in his career than Gheorge Muresan.
Oh by the way, did you know the Cav’s Kevin Bacon Number is 4? This is going to sound weird, but I’m bored. The Cav is obviously in Who Shot Mamba? (assuming it comes out). If you have watched the trailer, you know a certain ESPN-NBA personality is in it, one who was also in Little Nicky with Harvey Keitel. Keitel happened to be in Taxi Driver with Robert DeNiro who was in Sleepers with Kevin Bacon.
P.S. For those that care, my website is now at http://www.theserioustip.com/. Nothing wrong with a wee bit of shameless self-promotion every once in a while.
