The betrayal skull reference comes from the Chinese story of Zhuge Liang, one of China's most well-known intellectuals and military strategists. According to legend, before Zhuge died, he said, "Wei will betray the country sooner or later."

He just couldn't see the protuberant bone on Carlos' head. Next time, blind NBA owners: give the dome a quick rub before making those handshake deals.

"He has a protuberant bone on his head," Zhuge answered.
