n.Gloss: A goal scored in basketball. «Wade will eventually shift to LeBron on defense, and while he does post some gaudy defensive numbers (almost 3 “stocks” per game, to use some Simmons parlance), most of those come as a help-side defender.» —“Guest Post: A First Look at the Eastern Conference Playoffs” by Jacob WaitingForNextYear Feb. 2, 2010.

    Actually, the gloss should be “A defensive statistic in basketball measuring a combination of steals and blocked shots.” The Simmmons reference is to Bill Simmons, an ESPN guru who recently published “The Book of Basketball: The NBA According to the Sports Guy.”
