What the Hell Happened to Darius Miles? : Written by Darius Miles, edited by Quentin Richardson -- Dudes like me ain’t supposed to talk about this type of stuff. I’m about to tell you some real shit. Things I haven’t told anybody. But first, we gotta go back in time. We gotta go back to when the NBA was still the NBA. Way back when I had the pager with the two-way alert. I’m about to tell you the most Y2K story ever. I’m about to tell you how I almost died at Alonzo Mourning’s crib in the year 2000 on some dumb shit.

Rest in Peace Eddie Sutton. I took my dad to a Thunder/Heat pre-season game in Tulsa about ten years ago and espied Eddie hobbling into the BOK Center by himself. I'm half surprised he made it this long.

The leader in this category might be the Rams old stadium in St. Louis, which is empty and still being paid for by the city.

FWIW, the Dome does still get some use for large concerts, monster truck rallies, auto shows, large conventions, and most recently XFL games which were selling out (lower bowl only) consistently until the shutdown.
