What's the meaning of life? Who's my father? Am I gonna get sick? Does Tim Tebow really exist?
For centuries, people have turned to one man for life's great mysteries -- like Spencer Hawes averaging 15 points, 12 rebounds, and over two blocks per 36 minutes -- and that man is ... Philadelphia 76ers analyst Malik Rose?
If you're not familiar with the Chappelle's Show skit, that could've been construed as a really awkward comment by Rose and may or may not have caught his Emmy winner sidekick Marc Zumoff off guard a little bit. But if you caught it, then you likely enjoyed it as much as Sixers' fans are enjoying their current little five game winning streak.
I have a few questions for the Negro-damus. Malik Rose, why did Eric Snow fall asleep during a broadcast last year? Malik Rose, why do the Pistons suck so bad? Malik Rose, whatever happened to Geena Davis?

Why are the Sixers such a distant fourth in popularity among the city’s four major sports teams? Fans filled the place during Allen Iverson’s prime, and this Philly team, looking great so far against a schedule heavy on both cupcake teams and road games, could become one of the league’s most likable groups...
