Conflict of Interest Last Night at KeyArena

With the clock ticking down to zero, Jillbert drove the lane with 3 Sonics hanging all over him, and banked in a lay-up, dropping the ball through the hoop to win the game just as time expired and the backboard lit up to signal the end of play.
Then he took off his shirt and laid it on the floor. Total dose. He scored 42 overall. I don’t think the family sitting next to me liked me very much.
P.S. Oh, and my other favorite part of the game was this: Jill was mad at the ref after getting called for a foul, and so on the next play, he dribbled down the court, stopped at the 3-point line and netted a jump shot. Then he turned and glared at the ref. The guy sitting next to me freaked. “Did you see that? Did you see that? Give him a technical! Give him a technical! Man, they let Arenas get away with everything.” Well, no. Arenas had just been called for a foul two seconds earlier. In fact, Jillbert played with 5 fouls throughout most of the 4th—making his 4th quarter show all the more impressive.
