What About Spoon?

In addition to Michael Finley, Doug Christie, and Brian Grant, another player waived under the NBA's Mariah Carey plan was Clarence Weatherspoon. Ol' Clarence may have only averaged 13.1 minutes, 3.1 points, and 3.1 rebounds, but I'm still gonna miss him on the Rockets. I thought he fit perfectly -- he looked like Clutch, the mascot.

Both are sort of cute and rotund and more for entertainment than actual basketball. But I guess you can't feel too bad for a man being paid $6,353,200 to not do anything. May we all be lucky enough to be that mediocre (or in Mariah's case, that crazy) that people will pay us not to come into work.
