Calvin Murphy

Calvin Murphy (kal'-vin mur'fe) noun. Denotes those occasions when a player finishes with 14 points and either 9 rebounds or 9 assists.

Usage example: I had a Calvin Murphy in a church league game last night: 14 points and 9 boards.

Word history: The term was coined by Ryan of Loudvillain, who created it "in honor of Calvin Murphy, who is thought to have had 14 children with nine different women. Not to be confused with a 'Kemp Dozen.'" It has been officially inducted into the Basketbawful Hall of Statistical Anomalies, along with the one trillion, the Mario, and whatever else you wanna name...

Little off-topic here, but I was perusing your words of the day (noted above) and I noticed you failed to address Mr. Bill S. Preston's formal title:

Bill S. Preston, Esquire

SAN DIMAS HIGH FOOTBALL RULES!!

It doesn't get much better than this.
