Hue Hollins (1942-2013) was a former professional basketball referee in the National Basketball Association (NBA) for 27 years. During his career in the NBA, Hollins officiated 19 NBA Finals games and five NBA All-Star Games. He is notable for working the Finals every year during the 1990s and for a notorious call during a 1994 NBA Playoffs game between the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks. Hollins has also been probed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) over the 2007 NBA betting scandal involving former referee Tim Donaghy.

Gary Mark Gilmore (December 4, 1940 – January 17, 1977) was an American who gained international notoriety for demanding the fulfillment of his own death sentence for two murders he committed in Utah. He became the first person executed in the United States in ten years after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld a new series of death penalty statutes in the 1976 decision Gregg v. Georgia. (These new statutes avoided the problems under the 1972 decision in Furman v. Georgia that had led earlier death penalty statutes to be deemed as "cruel and unusual", and therefore unconstitutional, resulting in all states being ordered to commute death sentences to life imprisonment.) Gilmore was executed by firing squad in 1977.
