    It makes you appreciate our situation here.

    Darko I believe got into more trouble when he was with us, than any of our other players since Joe. D. has been in charge.

    Mourning had some interesting comments:

    Mourning was stern-faced before the game after hearing about Sunday morning's shooting incident involving Indiana Pacers G Jamaal Tinsley. "You've got to understand that we all are vulnerable when it comes to putting ourselves in situations where the public has access to us. And if we go out and flaunt and expose our luxuries, there are some jealous people out there who want it and put us in a position where we're targets," Mourning said. "I'm not saying you've got to hide it, but don't be flamboyant. Don't walk into a club with a crowd of people wearing a $250,000 chain around your neck or pull out a wad of hundreds for everybody to see. Pull out a credit card instead. I mean, you're asking for attention and you're asking for trouble."

    It seems to me that Mourning has a very valid point there.

    Dumars wouldn't have this kind of player. I think the tinted window scandal helped push Darko out of town.

    I don't know that anyone is blaming Tinsley or saying that he did anything wrong. But it seems to me that in a lot of cases, these types of incidents can be avoided with a bit of discretion.

    once, bad luck.....

    twice, ok your stupid.....

    three times, your not need on my team because you obviously can't use common sence.

    Why are you hanging out with a group of people carrying guns at 3am in the morning, getting into a mess and taking it upon yourselves to chase them down? use some of that money to buy a cell phone and call 911.

    Not to mention the wanted drug dealer on the run in one of your cars.

    If you go to NBA.com and look at the player bios, there is a Fantasy Player News section that lists news headlines for each player. Tinsley's includes all sorts of articles about trial dates being delayed and shooting incidents. Maybe fantasy leagues ought to include a category for run-ins with the police.

    Hanging out in public with strippers helped also.
