    Check out Thuzio.com - Ask a former player for a pick-up game or lunch, etc.

    So on the realgm board a few people were discussing a web site where retired pro athletes will let you pay them to hang out with you, play pick-up games, talk on the phone, etc. It's weird, but could also be kinda fun.

    I checked it out and there are former Jazz players--Corey Crowder, Walter Bond and Luther Wright. There are a bunch of other former pros there too like Nick Andersson, Dale Ellis, Darryl Dawkins, etc. Danny Green of the Spurs (current player) is on there. Kinda hilarious.

    Yep. I forget the ex-athlete who runs this or is co-founder or whatever but I heard about this a couple weeks ago...it's someone who's sort of Derek Fisher-ish I think.

    Seems escortee(That's a word because I say so, if it's not a word). I don't know, I wouldn't pay anybody to hang out with me. I don't care who it is.

    Looks like Utah only has one option so far:

    I'd pay that guy not to hang out with me. He was so annoying when he called BYU football games a few years ago.

    $250 to have Luther Wright eat lunch with you??

    Pretty sure the going rate for Luther Wright eating lunch with you is "hey Luther Wright, I'll buy you lunch."

    If a decent player joins this thing, we should set up a lunch for Jazzfanz.

    Luther Wright isn't it. I'm feeling sorry for that dude.

    Meh. I'd have to travel from Calif to do that. Not sure Stephen Howard is worth it.

    well, if she retires after that nasty fall she might be worth the money.

    "I was originally a Jazz fan but since I am getting pooped on so hard on the Jazz forums it is really starting to make me wish Kanter develops into the Kevin McHale potential he has and make the Jazz look bad. Nothing would make me happier at this point." Unidentified Kanter homer on reddit.

    Oh, that makes sense actually.
