Toni Kukoc loves the game. Only the game isn't basketball. He tells Gary D'Amato: "I think it's the best game ever invented," he said.

He would play near his home, for the Bulls or the Bucks, but as they don't seem to want him, he says he'll retire, despite offers from elsewhere in the league. The great irony: if he's really that into golf, how long is it before a retired Kukoc moves somewhere he can play year-round?
