The video of the death of Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili is a horrible thing to watch, and you'll have to go elsewhere to find a link to it. But, when considered along with the terrible injury suffered in training by American snowboarder Kevin Pearce, Kumaritashvili's death is enough to make any sane person wonder whether or not the line between athletic competition and special-effects stunt work with living human beings isn't becoming painfully blurred.

“Still too early, but I share the concern. Would love to see the eventual second unit guys – Baby, Jeff Green, Arroyo, West and probably Kristic – get to play together. Rondo looks exhausted and it would be helpful if Doc could cut back his minutes. Also, I strongly suspect there were concerns that Perk was not the same player anymore.”
“Packer was serious about hoops. I knew it was a big game when Musberger/Nantz would call a game with Packer. He was old school so he took delight in fundamentals such as a pick/roll or boxing out a rebounder. I'm still a young kid, but I enjoyed his analysis.”
