    He has defended many athletes.

    He said of O.J.'s defense team tactics: 'Not only did we play the race card, we dealt it from the bottom of the deck.'
    He prefers basketball and hockey over baseball.
    He made headlines when he dropped Lindsay Lohan as a client in less than 48 hours; comedians asked why he'd stick with O.J. Simpson, but ditch Lindsay Lohan (July 20, 2010).
