"Vernon Earl Monroe" is an American retired professional basketball player. He played for two teams, the Washington Wizards/Baltimore Bullets and the New York Knicks, during his career in the National Basketball Association (NBA). Both teams have retired Monroe's number. Due to his on-court success and flashy style-of-play, Monroe was given the nickname Earl "The Pearl".

One of my other nicknames was Thomas Edison, because I invented so many moves.

Just be patient. Let the game come to you. Don't rush. Be quick, but don't hurry.

Maybe someone will step up, but they don't have anyone right now.
