Honoring an inspiration: Over the weekend, former NBA star Mookie Blaylock was seriously injured in a car crash and is currently on life support. Upon hearing this news, the band Pearl Jam, which originally named itself after Blaylock, wished the player a get-well-soon after the crash. During the band’s heyday, they actually got a chance to play basketball with the point guard, the group’s Jeff Ament told The New York Times. “I went and played basketball with him, and he said: ‘You do have game! You have a good shot; you have a nice rotation,’” Ament explained. “I was like, ‘Awesome.’ That was all I was looking for.”
EDIT: There is an important update to this story.
