But anything can pretty much happen to anyone, under the right circumstances.
I completely disagree with this comment. Stop making excuses. You'll never find me doing anything Bird is accused of -- ever.

(Now, I am highly likely to spray one of my annoying fellow BART passengers in the face with bear spray in the coming 12 months, but that's a different story).
Perhaps, but maybe something else. We've all have regrettable things happen, it's just a matter of degree and coincidence whether it gets exposed. Hubris is a dangerous thing.

He doesn't look beat up in photo. Psychiatric evaluation, perhaps?
Probably this:

The woman told police she was able to leave after Bird passed out with "seizure-like" symptoms.

More likely to do with the part where she said he threatened to kill himself.

I wonder if Bird had some underlying psychological issues which manifested recently which relates to the seizures, behavior outside of the norm, and threatening suicide (all alleged). He has plead Not Guilty and said that the story out there isn't a full one so there's definitely more to come as the trial plays out.

His lawyer says there are "two sides to the story." Well, her side is repeated strangulations to the point of blacking out (with supporting neck bruising is my guess). His side: Well, that should be interesting. Have they outlawed the Twinkie Defense in Massachusetts yet?

Perhaps will become relevant?

Dear Chapman: with respect to the statement by Koream Bear, you are indeed gone. most of us who are old enough to experience lifes endless possibilities and scenarios know full well that Koream Bears' remark is closer to the truth than not. Let us hope and pray ( unless of course Prayer has been banned from this site----always a possibility considering that this is UC Berkeley after all) that we never have to face these types of decisions.

We don't really KNOW these guys, personally, but doesn't it seem like SOMETHING is going on here, besides just what she has reported? Maybe not mitigating circumstances, but something?!? Drugs? Medication? Bizarre exaggeration?

Whats interesting is that Bird had back spasms while at Cal which took him out of action a few times. Possible nerve problems. Now the girl said he had a seizure. Maybe he has a legitimate medical problem that clouded his judgement. Maybe not. Am hoping for the best but figuring on the worst.

The Bear will not Quit. The Bear will not die but Bart will continue to lie.

I stand by every word I said and I don't really know w. t. f. you're talking about. I have to surmise by your response that you've come close to choking out your wife?!?

And I'll be cute and play around with your name as well, and say I believe you will have hell to pay for doing such a thing.

Dear Gone: ( you don't deserve the Chapman) Was reading comprehension offered when you went to grammar school or have all your degrees been on-line ? I don't mean to be sarcastic, but, based upon your comments, analysis, and reading comp skills, I can only repeat the famous words of john McEnroe: " You cannot be serious." you seem to be a textbook example of what happens when folks go off their meds.

Lindsay Brauner and Richard Solomon (and others) are going at it on Twitter. You might want to check out Lindsay Brauner's Tweets.

Jabari made the front page at Yahoo.
Not their sports page.
Their FRONT page.

Because Kobe was an NBA star.
Jabari is the 15th guy on bench.
Celtics will cut him, and no NBA team will pick him up.
I guess he can play somewhere far from the US where news doesn't travel, but he also just lost many future job opportunities.

I think he also just lost his girlfriend, too. Although she was replaceable.

So sad.

Not to mention he's facing years in prison.

Really? I never heard that.

But, two words:

Testosterone, which served us well for millions of evolutionary years, is an endangered species.
Did you see the bit about the Rams 2 new male cheerleaders?
Not that there's anything wrong with that, but it did have me squirming in my seat.

The feminization of American males has been an on-going reality for about 30-40 years. Who started it??Feminists my dear lads--feminists who hate men and who have telling us for these many years that there is really no or little discernible difference between the sexes. any differences are caused by nurture and not by nature according to these man-haters. Are you pleased with the results? Male cheerleaders? of course. The prevailing culture has spoken. time to wince.

This entire thread is bizarre and disturbing...starting with original topic to the strange in-fighting among fellow posters. Throw in some homophobia and a pinch of misogyny. Great work boys and girls!

Dear UC Berkeley Grad: i would say the odds that you haven't read a newspaper in the last 30 years are about 2-1. It's not me who needs sobering up, old bean. but thank you for your concern.

Dear UC Berkeley Grad: There is nothing strange about fighting. Please see thge History of the World. since when are Blues ( new and old) exempt from human nature? Take solace from Winston Churchill who said, " it's better to jaw-jaw than to war-war. "

Setting aside your argument with Chapman, I want to be clear about what you're saying here because it seems to come out of nowhere in this thread. You're saying that:

A very large (and it doesn't make it "worse" or "better" but it's worth mentioning) man is alleged to have almost killed a (and it doesn't make it "worse" or "better") presumably much smaller woman and your reaction is that people upset about this are, to put it bluntly and in terms you will understand, pussified, and, in your opinion, this is frowned upon in society because of "feminists" (who I will add, merely demand that men and women be treated equally not that they are equal).

Did I get something wrong about your opinion?

I'm just really sad for Jabari. He had always shown himself to be a fine young man and we were cheering his future. But now this.... All seems lost.
