|x| What’s good, fam! Congratulations to the Miami Heat on winning another title! The biggest winner in all of this is really a tie between Eddie Curry and Juwan Howard. Curry, who hasn’t suited up for a single game this year, actually got a raise for losing weight before the start of the season…aaaaand he just collected a championship ring, which he can dip in fondue and attempt to eat in the off season. Juwan Howard is actually the only one of the storied Fab Five Michigan basketball team that has won an NBA title. Sorry C.Webb, Well, I bet that lady who wore Lebron’s beach towel of a sweatband after their Game 4 win is super stoked now because all that dried sweat is now championship dried sweat. Rad!

Our condolences to his immediate family & his extended Crooks family. This is a tough loss for anyone who had the honor of meeting Chris. His legacy lives on through his son and his Crooks brothers.
