Here’s a piece of free advice to professional athletes: Don’t let friends prone to driving automobiles into buildings borrow your one-year-old Bentley — especially if they’re drunk.
Lakers forward/center Jordan Hill unfortunately learned that lesson the hard way. Hill’s Bentley was found crashed into a Marina Del Ray, Calif., conduminium complex early Saturday morning, according to the LA Times. Hill was not in the car at the time as a driver or passenger.
The driver, Hill’s friend Michael Lacey, was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. He was found inside Hill’s condo after the crash. Lacey and the passenger were treated for minor injures. No one else was hurt as a result of the crash.

The one-year-old Bentley was totaled in the wreck. It has a blue book value of around $200,000. Hill is making $3.63 million this season for the Lakers.
The Lakers currently have a 3...

There are a million and one ways that teams can build unity and become a more cohesive unit. There is the trust fall where someone falls backwards and everyone catches him/her; paintball is always fun; I believe Rex Ryan tried to use a training session with some Navy Seals to accomplish that task.
There is no right or wrong way to build team unity--as long as what ever method...
