Exit Christie

Doug Christie's professional basketball career likely ended late last month, when the famously whipped shooting guard walked away from the L.A. Clippers. Christie, who had signed the second of two ten-day contracts, apparently had his publicist send a note to the team's offices during the All-Star Break (when they are closed), thus becoming probably the only player in league history to bail on a 10-day contract.

Why didn't Christie just call or drop off the note himself? Because that could conceivably result in him speaking to a woman other than his wife, which as we all know is not allowed.

Clips coach Mike Dunleavy had the best line: "I missed that hand signal."
