    I'll say Holt...he's a bit younger and will use his SoCal junior experience to compete at pro level better when he comes out.

    @GRANITECHIEF will not be happy you chose USC over UVa and his son.

    Better crew of pro alumni:

    Stanford (The McEnroes, The Bryans, Fedace, The Mayers, David Wheaton, Tim Mayotte, Jonathan Stark)

    or

    UCLA (Connors, Ashe, Maxipad, Brian Teacher, Eliot Teltscher, Charlie Pasarell, Peter Fleming)

    LBJ for now but there's a lot more canvas to paint for KD before the picture is complete.

    Bigger draft steal:

    Draymond (#35)

    or

    IT (#60)

    ???

    Draymond because IT [no way he's gonna emulate the ''Isaiah Thomas''], in all probability should just be another Nate Robinson, thus he must elect to choose payday and run with it.

    "Midnight in Paris"

    Morning coffee in Paris, with the promise of the day, or evening red wine in Paris, with the promise of an endless night?

    In summer, the red wine and the endless night; in winter, the coffee.

    Worse Paris Hilton movie:

    The Hottie And The Nottie

    NBA for the money.

    Worse NBA owner:

    Dolan

    Gilbert

    Gilbert is crazy, but Dolan is worse. Donald Sterling was far worse than both. I sometimes listen to Tom Tolbert's show on KNBR during my evening commute. He played for the Clippers before joining the Warriors in the early 1990s, and once went on a monologue about how bad an owner Sterling was, with stories that would have been very funny if they weren't so disturbing.

    Next L.A. NBA team to win a championship: Lakers or Clippers?

    Jerry West does his magic before Magic.

    Better DiMaggio nickname:

    Joltin' Joe makes me think of a nice, strong cup of coffee, which I could use right now.

    At the deli:

    Rye, sourdough, or another bread?

    I like a marbled pumpernickel rye for any deli sandwich featuring pastrami or corned beef. For other meats like my favorite very rare roast beef, I like a French bread baguette.

    Preferred French boulangerie treat:

    Fresh pain au chocolat croissants

    or

    Chocolate eclairs

    ???

    Any white fish in that one? Capers?

    Chocroissants v. Eclairs. Both so good. Let's say, indoors: the former. Outdoors/Beach: the latter.

    Oatmeal or Cream of Wheat?

    Oatmeal with raisins, apples, cinnamon and lots of butter or not at all.
