"I could care less, you know. College basketball has started. I don't really follow the pros. To me they are only playing seriously during the playoffs anyway, you know. So maybe they should just have the playoffs and get over it. There's actually so many games where they're just going through the motions. ... I'm sick of the whole thing. I really got to like baseball. Maybe I want a slower pace and stuff, but I'm more interested in college basketball. I have been for years." -- Jim Carroll, singer/guitarist, poet and author of "The Basketball Diaries"
