    Bench Coach - Herb Williams doesn't get on the court often, but he's invaluable off it

    Wrap Sheet - The bloody trail of this year's fashion must

    As luxury items go, it's almost disappointing. The undyed color is mouse brown. The texture resembles surgical gauze. It costs as much as a Rolex and yet has no label glitz and little high-concept value. In fact, it's so reverse chic you'd notice it ...

    NY Mirror - At Limelight, my friend was screaming 'Tacky!' through our entire five minutes there, but the place was surprisingly mobbed.

    The upcoming Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is sort of like The Usual Trainspotting Rounder Suspects, but somehow original (though I'm rapidly tiring of these tough-guys-together flicks, even when they half-spoof the genre). At Lock, Stock's spo...
