Career advice for Alan Anderson: if you want people to pay attention to you, as an old role-player who doesn’t do a whole lot on the court, you have to dunk it more often. Yes, it’s hard for a 32-year old to throw down monster hammers, but these are the sacrifices you must make if you want to appear on SportsCenter just once before you die. That, or you can try to turn yourself into a scoring machine and score fifty. Heck, even forty would get you on ESPN, because it would be the last thing anybody expected.
Career advice for DownToBuck: do not get into the designer birdhouse trade. There is no market for that crap. You may be the architect of the most iconic birdhouses in history, but a lot of good that does you when your landlord cuts your water and electricity off to try to stop you from squatting in her apartment rent-free. If you had gotten a real job, there’s a real possibility that you and Jennifer would be building your new life together right now. Instead, she’s on the other side of the country, probably dating a guy who is making six figures to your four figures.
