    Move up to the NBA and you see some REALLY funky hairstyles.

    If you can rebound like Rodman, I don't want to say you picked the wrong profession...


    but you may have picked the wrong profession.

    I can rebound. All you got to do is time the ball. It's more theft than anything else. You time the ball and snatch it. I'm not tall enough nor can I jump high enough to be a pro. I would have loved to. I could just touch the rim. I CAN rebound and shoot. I played from the 70s until the day I retired in 2000. Almost every day. I've even played in the hanger decks on moving ships in combat boots. My knees are telling me all the f- about it.

    Wilt was the strongest and most athletic center in the history of the NBA, even better than Kareem.

    Little factoid ... Wilt was a very poor actor. When they made Conan 2 he kept roughing Arnold up. They'd get into the fight scenes and Wilt would actually fight and slam him around.

    Big picture: the world took a turn for the worse when men decided they too want attention for their looks. Now you all make mistakes about as stupid as women make.

    How can you be proud of yourself wearing a bun on your head as a man? Little girls wear them in gradeschool.

    Not the same thing, Abs. Men have always wanted attention. The line is drawn where men want the same attention as girls. I didn't seek attention but sure as Hell didn't turn it away. It was about the competition to me and I'd rather you NOT see me coming. How I looked only mattered in uniform because it matters in uniform.

    These guys are saying "look at me". Sure. Won't be hard to watch your ass either what with that neon billboard on top of your grape.

    Yes, that is why I specified they now want attention for their looks. Men always liked attention for other things- money, sports prowess, their car, toughness, etc. Used to make more sense that way, lol.

    Missed this one.

    Over his career he led the NBA in scoring, rebounding, or assists.
    Only Nate Thurmond or Bill Russell could stand toe to toe with him.
    Unlike most tall NBA players he could leap. High jumper and hurdler
    in college.
    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?

    Sports Illustrated said he was the strongest professional athlete in the world back in his prime.
    I saw him in person once. He filled the doorway to WVU's Mountaineer Coliseum...

    I played sports. And I played to win. I actually started shaving my head when I got tired of paying out ever week for a haircut. And it was a few years BEFORE Jordan made it popular. I just figured I could make me look as bald as the barber. When I finally divorced I was shocked at women paying attention to me. I never paid attention to them when I was married.

    They say men go through that mid-life crisis crap. Get a sports car and grow a comb over. I was accused of spending mine in the weight room. dojo and basketball court competing with people half my age. Probably an accurate assessment.

    But I never considered being flashy or anything else. I always wore long sleeve, oversized dress shirts so no one could tell how big I was. I wanted to win. I was never in it for the looks so I don't get the mentality.
