--My podcast, THE DREAM TEAM TAPES, got 2.5 million downloads. You can Google it and hear it. Have a couple other podcast ideas, also. --My book, GOLDEN DAYS, was about the Jerry West-Wilt Chamberlain Lakers who won 33 straight games and the modern Golden State Warriors, the standard for contemporary excellence. --Our family used to have two waverunners that I drove too wildly and served as a poor example for my sons, who also drove too wildly. We don't have them anymore. --My wife is smarter than I. One of my sons (Chris) is a Spanish translator and the other (Jamie) is a professor of sociology and both are also smarter than I. Jamie's book, "Worked Over," is now available. --I'm not sure what else I would've done if I weren't a journalist. I always dreamed about having a TastyKake route at the Jersey shore. I am at the shore much of the summer but have no route, though I do enjoy Tastykakes. --I played a lot of pickup basketball until I tore my Achilles. Just had a knee replacement, too. But other than that I'm the Rock. Possible exaggeration. --Though it is more in the romantic tradition of journalism to have an eccentric two-fingered typing style, I type well, owing to a background in piano and a typing class in high school. I now suck at the piano. And I would probably suck at high school if I went back. --I will talk about my four grandkids all day. Their names are Oliver, Eudora, Zev and Asa. Another one is due in November. --My golf game is just good enough to be ultimately disappointing. --I count myself lucky to have been covering the NBA in the 1980s and early 2000s.
