From the Creepy And Mean Yet Fascinating department comes this entry from upstart NBA blog The Association: The NBA Death Pool. Which NBA player/coach with no business playing/coaching will drop dead at just the wrong moment?
It's distasteful, sure, but Oddjack isn't here to break down the lines, so we feel like it's our job. Coming in at 5:1 is the Lakers' Ronny Turiaf, with incumbent favorite Eddy Curry falling to 10:1.
Our best bet: The longshot Pat Riley at 100:1. Anybody who puts off hip replacement surgery to coach Antoine Walker and Jason Williams is, frankly, kind of asking for it.
