The Nike thing wasn't his choice: they had the right to match any offer. (Kind of an endorsement-deal version of restricted free agency.)


Obviously, I missed that along the way! I don't usually pay attention to who signs where, and for how much; this had just got my attention because it fit into my 'Durant To DC' theory.
Honestly, I hate the whole shoe deal thing, anyway. The amount of money paid out is beyond obscene. I always say, these guys talk about 'helping the community' and whatever; how about asking Nike to sell a 15 dollar pair of shoes? I remember when Stephen Marbury signed a deal with someone (I think it was And1), to sell a 20 dollar pair of kicks. I mean, they weren't in high demand (because they weren't Nike or Adidas), but at least the guy made an effort (probably one of the only unselfish things he ever did).

Truly sad and amazing how Brian keeps outliving everyone

Sweetdudejim also made a comment like this, and it's the first thing that crossed my mind. Brian, after all of the crap he (and others) has done to harm himself, is somehow still alive. At this point, it wouldn't surprise me a bit if he ended up being the last remaining BB.

Anderle always struck me in interviews as being a pretty honest and likeable guy. He did everything he could to help Brian try to achieve his goals during that hugely creative period of '66-
'67. Damn shame.

He's still going to Washinton, I'll bet.

The Worlds have been fun. Turke played a hell of a game against USA Sunday. For nearly 3 quarters it was scary, shades of Greece '06.

I don't usually post in these threads as I just don't know these people but have to say, Anderle seemed particularly cool in the BD doc and that Paul Williams piece. RIP indeed.

B.W. posted this on facebook:
David Anderle passed away. I'm devastated beyond words. That's just all I have to say. Love and Mercy.
Your friend always,
Brian



Can't say I was totally familiar w/ Mr. Anderle, but he does seem to have been a real nice guy. R.I.P.

Did Bruce know about the plan to replace him with Billy Hinsche in 1969?  If so, was he talking about a potential solo career at that point and so the others were looking to replace him?  If that's the case, what kept him around for three years?   If he didn't know, when did he find out about this plan to wheedle him out?

I just had this dream I went to the movies and me and my brothers were dressed like Brian from that picture of him and wolfman jack, all plaid suits and pimp hats, and the movie was directed by Paul thomas andersen and marcella was on the soundtrack and everyoone brought acoustic guitars with because it was a hottenanny , but my guitar had no headstock, but it was the best sounding guitar I'd eve played. Then when Marcella came on my brother asked me whaty was going thwack an I said that was a synthesizer, and then he said "Good Vibrations is a rreally great song" - then I left the theater and got lost in the hallways becuase it wS A VERY DARK ND MYSTEROUS MULTIPLEX, than I ended up in another auditorium where there was a movie called the shining, except it was directed by M.Night Shamylan not stanley kubrick
