    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.
