    The Mayor is #1

    This is funny stuff by our friends over at Deadspin: 2002-03 Chicago Bulls, Ranked According To Likelihood The Player Was Getting Baked Before Games

    Awesome picture of Donyell Marshall.

    Re: The Mayor is #1

    That's pretty funny and the comment there about Fred spending time on the zoning board, but that list would have Eddie Curry #1, no doubt.

    Re: The Mayor is #1

    It's organized by least likely, so doesn't that make Fred as #1 the least likely to smoke the green?

    With Eddie Curry and Eddie Robinson near the top I would think it is least to most. Maybe they put Fred first because he would have to be smoking on that team to keep sane.

    So by that logic Donyell Marshall and Eddy Curry were much less likely to smoke then Dalibor Bagaric?

    Re: The Mayor is #1

    Am I missing something about The Mayor being number 1 or is it just some random nonsense?

    It's a joke.

    Gotcha. I didn't know if there was some inside info about him or if it was just naming him number 1 because of his "good guy" persona.

    Dan Patrick mentioned this, and said (paraphrasing) "Fred Hoiberg was on that team, so not all were that way"

    Re: The Mayor is #1

    It's an honest ranking 2-15, and Fred is #1 just to be funny- since it is completely absurd that he wouldn't be 15th. Fred would probably be 450th in the NBA at that time based on likelihood of getting baked before or after games.

    It's funny because you have to explain it!

    There were two baked Cyclones on that team, fwiw.

    Re: The Mayor is #1

    Hoiberg petitioned that his number be 420 until the NCAA and NBA ruled that triple digit numbers wouldn't be allowed. Sad Day for Rasta-Fred.

    He also voted to legalize weed in both CO and WA via mail in ballots.
