    Now, Alvin Robertson gets arrested the night before our first game for kicking a naked prostitute out of his hotel room after deciding he didn't want to pay. He gets bailed out the next day at like 3 in the afternoon and our game is at 7. He goes out and leads the team in scoring and we win the first game. That's when I knew that season was going to be weird.
    LOL on Alvin for kicking a naked prostitute out of his hotel room after deciding he didn't want to pay, I mean that's 3 violations right there!

    Alvin Robertson was a crazy mofo.

        So, did he end up liking Toronto? Or?

        Pretty awesome story, I'll probably check that podcast out some time.. I always liked John Salley, seemed like a good guy.

          Salley for years has thought of himself as a comedian.

          A lot of people do find him funny.

          However, I first remember him from when the Pistons drafted him out of GIT.

          People in Detroit thought he was going to make them forget this guy.



          Instead he only started 90 games in six seasons.

          A mediocre version of Amir Johnson.

          He retired at the age of 31 and then returned to the NBA at the age of 35 for 45 forgettable games with the Lakers in 99-00.

          I guess he played for them long enough to make the connections necessary to start jump start his Hollywood career as a comedian.

            He was on "I'm a celebrity, get me out of here". How can anyone take him seriously?

                On the basketball threads like this one; i.e. "Everything Raptors"



                we try and avoid political commentary.

                Just saying.

                  That's why he's in jail now.....he's a crazy perverted mofo'er.

                  *****On February 27, 2010, Robertson was arrested for the alleged sexual assault of a child, trafficking an underage child for purposes of sex and forcing a sexual performance by a child. Authorities claim that Robertson was part of a ring that kidnapped a 14-year-old girl from San Antonio, forced her to have sex with clients and to dance at a Corpus Christi strip club in 2009. The girl escaped her alleged captors, prompting an investigation. http://www.clevelandleader.com/node/13178



                  JSalley has a grip of crazy stories- dude used to live in a 62 room freak palace while he was a Piston....
