Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could keep lies from conquering the minds of the weak. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

Well then. Per Hot Hot Hoops:
This is probably not exactly how the play was drawn up, unless Kurt Rambis is coaching 8th-grade hoops now.
But still: Tons of fun. Check it out:
Sometimes bloopers don't really capture the spirit of the thing. Well, the top 10 NBA bloopers of 2012 are legit. Have a look-see:
Life just keeps getting better and better for Latrell Sprewell since he turned down millions of dollars to keep playing basketball for the Wolves several years ago. Per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:
Milwaukee native and former NBA star Latrell Sprewell was arrested for disorderly conduct Monday afternoon after police received repeated complaints about loud music coming from a house on E. Pleasant St. on Milwaukee's east side, according to jail records reviewed by the Journal Sentinel Tuesday.
Police would not release details of the incident other than to report that police had received two complaints within one hour Monday afternoon and had received several complaints of loud music from the residence in recent months.
Sprewell, 42 and a graduate of Washington High School, was booked into the jail about 4:15 p.m.
Love the time on this one. 4:15 p.m. on New Year's Day. That is QUITE a party.
"I have chosen to not play, because the doctors and I believe it to be unsafe for unqualified Rockets front office personnel to make medical decisions, as they are not mental health professionals. I do wish to play, but I only intend to do so with the collaboration and recommendation of trained professionals. The purpose of a doctor's confirmation is to ensure that health decisions are made in the sole interest of health and not conflicted with business. My only hope is that decision makers involved realize that doctors are the only logical source to decide action."
We have no idea how this whole thing will play out. It is messy, complicated ... and so many other things.
Our question to you, the dear readers, is this (we suppose): What is your take? That is to say, who do you think needs to budge first here? Does White need to give it a go in the D-League and see how it impacts his mental health ... do the Rockets need to, as he suggests, take a less traditional approach to roster moves with White ... or do the two sides just need to go their separate ways and figure out a financial settlement?
