Over at, they ran an interview with Vlade Divac, because, well, what else are they going to do for content? Dance team tryout pictures will only take you so far. In the interview, they asked Divac about the best prank he ever pulled, and well...
“I had a lot of them but I’ll pick one you’ll really like – it’s about Bobby Jackson. He lost some card games on a plane and, obviously, we were so close that we didn’t want to take each others’ money. But I told him, ‘You don’t need to pay me, but you need to be in your underwear and check-in to the hotel in New York.’ So that happened.

I... er... we... uh... so...

I'm just trying to get my head around the visual of Bobby Jackson walking in to check into a hotel in New York in his skivvies. That's right. I said skivvies.

I wish more players would share stories of the past like this with the media. The harmless stuff that no one gets upset about, because I love hearing road stories from ex-players. It's just unfortunate that most guys have to be pretty tight lipped, for fear of misinterpretation, or it being blown out of proportion in the media. Don't get me wrong, I'm as bad as any for accessing the media on a more-than-necessary basis, but I'm sure the stars wish for the days before cell phone cameras, twitter, and all the rest of it.
