Phills, traveling 107 mph, was behind Wesley, at 110 mph, when he spun out, crossed into oncoming traffic and collided with an Oldsmobile on Jan. 12, according to Monday's report from Charlotte-Mecklenburg County police. Police originally estimated the two players were racing at speeds more than 75 mph in the 45 mph zone.

Extractions: HORNETS CHARLOTTE In a service that was emotional and uplifting, Charlotte got its chance to say goodbye to Bobby Phills on Friday afternoon at Central Church of God. Mourners passed by Phills open casket for nearly four hours prior to a memorial service that lasted almost two hours. The ceremony was filled with tearful, poignant moments and was attended by two entire NBA teams, as well as several other current or former professional basketball players. Phills bronze casket was surrounded by floral arrangements, one in the shape of a basketball hoop and ball, and two poster-size photographs of him on the court.

Extractions: HORNETS Most of todays stories about the death of the Charlotte Hornets Bobby Phills will read like a standard obituary. Theyll show his age, his family, his accomplishments and give quotes heralding his good nature. Oftentimes, such an obituary will either gloss over or fail to mention any misdeeds. You know, the kind of courtesy given to those who have just died. But, in the case of Bobby Ray Phills Jr., there cant be enough positives to cut to the essence of what he was. Or as legendary Cleveland Cavaliers broadcaster Joe Tait said of Phills Wednesday: "If one asks me to describe the NBA player who epitomizes all that you wished what NBA players would be, its Bobby Phills. I dont know one negative thing about him." His agent may have summed up the emotions of everyone who came in contact with the Charlotte Hornets forward.

Extractions: For one thing, you kind of got lost in the shuffle. The Times reported that the death rate shot up the first week of January. The theory is that people on the verge of kicking can develop a will to live to see special events, such as weddings, birthdays, Christmas, the Super Bowl, Armageddon, etc. Doctors think a lot of these deaths in early January are geezers who had been holding out to see the world come to an end on Y2K. I would have been sitting there, in my chair or my adjustable bed in whatever hellhole rat-infested nursing home my embittered, angry, fed-up children put me in, my teeth in a glass, grinning with my gaping, toothless maw, watching Dick Clark with my rheumy eyes, rooting for Satan to come down with his mighty white sword or whatever was supposed to happen. A final "fuck off" to the rest of the world "hey, World, too bad about that Armageddon, I guess it really sucks if you didn't already have 90 notches on the old belt, huh? HAR!"
