    OMG!! He was Bynum's close friend in Andrew's first couple of years on the Lakers, when he was the RB at USC. He used to hang out on Clublakers and we knew what name it was. I posted one evening asking him if he would ask Drew why he never tried the Sky Hook in a game (after spending so much time with Kareem privately tutoring him). And Joe came back like an hour later and said that Drew said, "because Phil would make him run laps if he missed it".

    How tragic. How senseless. Sounds like a road rage incident from quick scan ..... have to read.

    Rest in Peace.

    I don't remember him on CL. What was his screen name?

    The guy who shot McNight, Ronald Gasser, was charged in a "road rage" case 10 years ago, but the charge was dismissed before going to trial.

    The spokesman for the NOPD told the press that the reason they released Gasser without charging him "had nothing to do with race" and "we want to do a thorough investigation" makes me believe that procedural errors occurred 10 years ago. They want to get it right this time around.
