I swear I don't understand OJ

But really now who does? He's like an expert on the precisely wrong way to resolve a problem.

This person that he knows has some sports memorabilia that he alleges belongs to him. The other person disagrees. Sounds like a court case to me, something that he has a lot of experience with. Does he file a civil lawsuit? Oh no, that would be far too pedestrian. Allegedly he and some armed men [or unarmed golf buddies depending on who you ask] break into a Las Vegas hotel room to steal them. And of course they get caught.

Now this is just too weird for words any way you slice it. I mean what is it that motivates him really? Bad publicity? Some say no publicity is bad but I'm not so sure.

And knowing his propensity for getting into trouble, would you accompany him on this caper? We're not talking about a few million dollars here. We're talking about sports memorabilia of questionable value.

OJ could turn his life around and chooses not to. I can't help, but recall Tookie Williams, founder of the Crips, who was recently executed for being convicted of murder. While in prison, Tookie wrote kids books about not joining gangs. What does OJ do? The discrepancy is starting to bug me. Oh that's right OJ was found innocent .

OJ was found not guilty. In our legal system, that's not the same as innocent. As was shown by the follow-up civil suit results.
