I've always been annoyed by the saying that this puzzle is built on; maybe after you solve it, you will be too. By the way—this puzzle is a pangram: every letter of the alphabet is represented. I don't usually care about such things, but when I found I was only one very famous basketball star away, I thought—"why not?" Don't worry—he's so very famous even I have heard of him, and I confess I've never sat through a whole basketball game live or televised. I have nothing against the sport particularly, but I can't endure the sound of those squeaking shoes.
