“I just go like a hermit crab. I go place to place if I have to. So whatever it takes to put food in my kids’ bellies and a roof over their head. It doesn’t matter to me.” — Nate Robinson, on if he’ll be with the Bulls next year

Look, I’m as skeptical as you guys are that blowing out your ACL and then having it repaired can make a 24-year-old any taller. But after what happened to Paul George, we have to at least consider the possibility. And since the “report” is coming from noted sideline bro Ric Bucher, it carries a little more weight.
It seems unlikely for someone to grow in height at 24, but I’d swear he’s gone from 6’3″ to 6’4″. I’m the former and we were eye level the last time I spoke to him.
I’ve always said the best way to measure a player’s height is by looking them in the eye, then using that discrepancy to decide how tall they are. There is no more reliable measuring stick for height, except for maybe a measuring stick. So yeah, I guess this is incontrovertible proof that Derrick Rose has grown since having his knee repaired. I mean, it’s not like Ric Bucher, born in 1961, could have shrunk a single inch as he ages. That sort of thing never happens.

“Right now I’m on a drought, soon I’m going to make it flood.” — Nate Robinson, duh

I don’t know if this an outtake from a lost Outkast video, a weird size demonstration involving Nate Robinson or just a standard birthday party for a 34-year-old. But I do know that every time I see a player holding a small likeness of themselves, I giggle. So right now, totally giggling. He looks so proud.

If you’ve got a spare $100,000 lying around and are reading this website, you are probably OK with spending all that money on something basketball-related, just so long as it’s awesome. And though, as a Bulls fan, I might be biased, I’m fairly certain that this fits the bill — it’s the structural blueprint for the United Center’s Michael Jordan statue that everyone takes a picture with whenever they go to a Bulls game. And it’s on eBay.

- Item: Michael Jordan Statue Structural Blue Print Page
- Size: 24″ x 17 ” (the frame adds a 1.5 inches to each side)
- Description: The drawings are clear and readable, cheap frame, the blue print was poorly glue’d onto a piece of cardboard, can see the swirl of the glue through the paper, paper has yellowed except where the glue swirls are
- Payment: Paypal
- Shipping and Handling
- Local pick up only but will help if you are making the shipping arrangement
OK, so there are some obvious flaws with this — you have to pick it up in Manteno, IL and there is no reason you would ever want to go there besides this, there are some glue swirls on the paper, the frame sucks — but it’s totally worth it to have the blueprints to a statue of Michael Jordan wearing a pair of shoes he never wore for a game. Buy a nicer frame, hang it above the mantle and you’re straight ballin’.
And though it totally makes sense that such a thing would exist, I’m a little surprised it does. I guess I always just figured that the plans behind Michael Jordan’s statue were just something along the lines of, “Build a statue of Michael Jordan dunking and make it look awesome.” The statue accomplishes that pretty easily, but it does make a lot of sense that there’d be more planning than just one guy telling another what he’d like to see. This is why I’m not an architect, sculptor or city planner.
So just pony up the $100,000 and get a super cool, one-of-a-kind piece of memorabilia. Literally no else will have this, so you’ll instantly have a leg up on all the other rich, eccentric Jordan fans out there. Just make sure you get a new frame because that one is bogus.
