Basketball Player

The Resume

Why he might be annoying:

    His name is similar to Primary Colors novelist Joe Klein.
    He played himself in the disastrous bomb movie 'Eddie.'
    His most memorable games at the University of Arkansas were playing against University of Houston's Hakeem Olajuwon (Hakeem was nicknamed 'the Dream,' he was nicknamed 'the Nightmare').
    He's best known for being a backup on winning teams.
    He's personally aware of this and has admitted it outweighed starting and putting up better individual statistics with a losing franchise.
    In his one season with the Bulls, he competed in 46 games (starting in just one of them) and didn’t get to appear in one game during the Bulls 1998 playoff run.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He won a silver medal playing for the U.S. national team in the 1982 FIBA World Championship.
    He was a member of the 1984 Olympic Basketball team coached by Bobby Knight.
    He, along with University of Arkansas teammate Alvin Robertson, led the team to a gold medal.
    He played 965 regular-season games for seven franchises with 204 starts.
    He co-owns two Corky’s barbecue restaurants in Little Rock and North Little Rock.
    He said: 'I liked being on good teams, because good teams just had a happier atmosphere. Life was easier.'
