    Exactly, why so long. He holds how many records that will likely never get beaten because no one stays in college long enough anymore. I would have assumed this happened a long time ago.

    Wouldn’t it be cool if Kareem, Kurt, and if Magic, Worthy, and Norm Nixon stopped by the Lakers practice and called out the current Laker squad for 10 min scrimmage?

    That would be awesome. We should all try to write James Worthy and see what he says.
