n 5 time MVP

n 10 time All NBA First -Team selection

n Selected as one of the “50 Greatest Players in NBA History”

Firefox is a sourcers best friend.

So I am updated to Firefox 3.0 and with the exception of signature all of my favorite add-ons have been updated. It is these add-ons that make my life as a sourcer much easier. So below I have listed the addons I use and what they do for me.

Google Toolbar - Besides the search and the Google dog food here are what I believe to be the best reasons to use it. The site search button - you find a site that you want to explore. Instead of typing out you just press the… Continue

I survived the Recruiting Animal!

Sure, some say he was nice on me, even though I was SURE he was lurking... just waiting to HAMMER me.
