    Matt, give a shoutout to the St. Baldrick’s fundraiser for Childhood Cancer. Every year, teams of people get their heads shaved in honor of kids who are fighting cancer, and to raise money from sponsors. I have been doing this for over 10 years, ever since my wife was diagnosed with cancer while carrying our second child. It is a great cause! A team of UK fans getting together in honor of Lane would be a great tribute to him.

    I just got on and found out about Lane. I’m absolutely heart-broken for his parents and family. I have a little boy of 4-years-old and he is my everything. I cannot fathom the pain they are going through today. While I bet they feel some relief that Lane is no longer suffering, they are also dealing with the pain of no longer seeing their precious little guy and the thought of him growing up and accomplishing his dreams. Although Lane is gone, BBN should not forget about the tons of little kids dealing with similar afflictions. Please find ways to support these little people in ways you never thought of before knowing about Lane. Do it in Lane’s memory! Rest in Peace Little Lane! Hopefully he is hoopin’ it up right now with the likes of UK guys like Desmond Allison who have already passed on!

    Have to go with the Travis Tritt version and I don’t even like country music at all. I don’t like the Eagles either. Tritt is from Marietta, Ga. Same city outside of Atlanta as Harrow and the Blaylock twins on the football team are from. As they say in Marrietta were it’s better.

    If you really want some entertainment, there was a band called “Dread Zeppelin” that had a 300 lb Elvis impersonator for a lead singer and did old Led Zep songs to a Reggae beat.

Seriously, aside from the lightning in a bottle that he had with Wade, has he really done anything that remarkable?

    375 — My thoughts exactly. He was a major reason they didn’t make the Final 4 in the last two seasons as he took it upon himself to jack up deep NBA-three pointers late in their final tournament games. Not what I want out of a point guard.
