who's Jorad

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Jorad

Jorad was a Force-sensitive Human male member of the Jedi Order during the waning years of the Galactic Republic. At the end of the Clone Wars, the Republic was reformed into the Galactic Empire. The new government was hostile to the Jedi, and began hunting them down. Jorad became a wanted man and he was captured by members of the Inquisitorius, a group of Dark Side Adepts who served the Empire as Jedi hunters. They turned Jorad to the dark side of the Force, and he himself became an Inquisitor. Jorad was sent to carry out his new duties on the planet Prakith, where the headquarters of the Inquisitorius was located. He carried out patrols in the planet's capital, Prak City, where he searched for Force-users. When a team of Alderaanian Resistance agents traveled to Prakith to free Jedi Master Denia, who had been captured by the Inquisitorius, Jorad located the agents in Prak City. He engaged them in combat and attempted to capture them.


Jorad ain't got sh!t on Mace Windu

ESPNews had a pretty sweet highlight reel on him the other day. Some of them were just unreal. I hated him when he played but he is for sure the GOAT.

What is the best HOF class of basketball? This year is pretty darn good, but is it the best. Crzy, Pete and anyone who follows it closely...opinions?

I think it's the best. The other two that are up there are Oscar Robertson/Jerry West/Jerry Lucas & Walt Frazier/Pete Maravich/Rick Barry.

Oscar Roberson, Jerry West and Jerry Lucas - that's pretty amazing.

I hated Jordan because I was a Reggie Miller fan. But, I always always respected Jordan's game and believed he was the GOAT.

Jazz coach Jerry Sloan and legendary point guard John Stockton have surprised many with who they decided to represent them as they enter the Hall of Fame.

The pair will be inducted into Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass. on Friday.

Sloan selected Charles Barkley, while Stockton tabbed Isiah Thomas.

"First of all, he set a huge standard for all little guys," Stockton told the Salt Lake Tribune of Thomas. "At the time, the NBA was going toward bigger and bigger guards. But he showed everyone that little guys could play, too."

Stockton added that Thomas changed his vision of basketball early on.

"I ran up against him once in high school and he changed my entire view of basketball," Stockton recalled. "We played in an AAU tournament and I has never seen anything like it.

"He's done some things behind the scenes that people don't know about. I'm certainly not going to talk about them now ... but he's shown a lot of class."

Sloan made the decision to select Barkley for a different reason.

"The biggest thing, I guess, is that my [late] wife Bobbye was a big fan of his," Sloan explained. "At the [1992] All-Star Game in Orlando, she saw him stand there for an hour or so and sign autographs.

That's when she became a fan. Other than John and Karl [Malone], he was her favorite player."
