THE BIG ONE

Recent news has been dominated by stories of a “polar vortex” covering roughly half the United States.

Writers have used the terms “huge,” “gigantic,” and “slow-moving swirl.”

In other words, same as when Kyrylo Fesenko played for the Jazz.

1 of 8. MAX OUT

A study by MBA students at the University of Utah says the state is in need of more liquor stores. No, this is not a Max Hall nightmare.

2 of 8. PLAYTIME

San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich was fined last season for sending star players home from a road trip so they could get extra rest. This year he’s giving himself a vacation.

Popovich told the San Antonio Express-News his New Year’s resolution is to watch less film; his team has its own issues to resolve.

Still, who knew Pop and Andrew Bynum had the same basketball philosophy — less is more?

3 of 8. LOCKDOWN MODE

New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith was fined $50,000 last week for “recurring incidents of unsportsmanlike conduct,” after twice trying to untie opponents’ shoelaces.

And they say NBA players don’t try to stop anyone.

4 of 8. BLUSHINGLY BAD

Dennis Rodman incensed many by recently suggesting imprisoned American Kenneth Bae somehow deserved to serve a 15-year sentence of hard labor in North Korea.

Rodman quickly apologized to the family, saying, “I embarrassed a lot of people.”

Was this before or after he married himself?

5 of 8. JACKSON REACTION

Golden State coach Mark Jackson drew criticism for saying John Stockton was “a good-to-very-good shooter. Not a great shooter.”

Which dovetails nicely with Jackson’s own career — good to very good, but not great.

"Max Hall wouldn't approve"?

Other than the first one about more liquor stores in Utah, what the heck does this list have to do with Max Hall????
