Wow this is turning out to be as bad as the "decision" if they are really going to make this a hour long! Just wow...

Just spotted Jabari behind the doors. He's dressed up and standing next to his father, waiting to come out. Looked a little nervous.

Lol, it's all about the money man. If you delay it until the end, you force viewers to continue watching. What if they revealed the criminal in the first 10 minutes in an episode of Law and Order? It's all about the suspense.

Agreed. Same reason they make the NCAA selection special a half hour long. I mean, you have to name 68 teams. Fairly sure anyone could do that in a matter of 3 minutes.

A diva (/ˈdiːvə/; Italian: [ˈdiːva]) is a celebrated female singer. The term is used to describe a woman of outstanding talent in the world of opera, and, by extension, in theatre, cinema and popular music. The meaning of diva is closely related to that of prima donna.

The male form divo exists in Italian and is usually reserved for the most prominent leading tenors, like Enrico Caruso and Beniamino Gigli. The Italian term divismo describes the star-making system in the film industry. In contemporary Italian, diva and divo simply denote much-admired celebrities, especially film actresses and actors, and can be translated as "(film) star".

Hoops Divo = Jabari
