"With me and Z [Ilgauskas], we're the best center ever created. Better than Bill Walton. Not better than Mr. Russell, but he's different. But better than anybody." - Shaq

   Where Are They Now, 2011: Bookkeeping The Retired Guys

Tom Gugliotta - Go to any golf course in the land, hang around for a while, and you'll meet Googs eventually. In retirement, the man is playing a lot of golf. Googs was also recently a compelling protagonist in a Twitter meme, created by Evan Dunlap, involving NBA players names as websites (i.e. Tom Googliotta). Other entries = Ndudi eBay, bit.ly Nailon, Michael Flickrson, imageshaq.us, O.J. Mayoclinic.com, PerezWalton, Lior Eliyahoo, timofeymoz.gov, Michael Reddit, and, pleasantly, ShammondSports.com. Everyone was a winner here.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 26

- Tom Gugliotta

Googs last played in 2005 with the Atlanta Hawks, for whom he averaged 7.9 points and 5.5 rebounds in 27 games. He then retired due to the persistent problems he had with his knee, and with the other injuries that led to, such as back complaints. He now plays a lot of golf, and is a member of the Georgia Hole-In-One club. Giggidy.

(Also on that list is a man called Gaylord Hunt. Best name ever? Best name ever.)

The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
