I hope you heed my advice ;). Great ride together! Maybe next time you'll give me more than 1 star.

I would add that I think part of the point missing is the evolution of players and how one lead from one to the other. Doctor J revolutionized the game. At the time he took basketball to new heights. Without him, not sure we have Magic and Bird. Then we get Jordan which seemed to take part Doc adding in Bird (shooting) and Magic (passing). No one in the 70's could seriously think of a guy like Magic who could play guard, forward, center. Amazing. Now you have LeBron and he has taken that and combined that with an even more amazing skill set.


Seventies. shmeventies. Closest precursor might have been Tom Gola in the fifties.

Good god, seriously, wtf ever happened to defense in the nba?
Who are the retards that f'ed everything up and ruined the nba?
I guess if you're young enough never to remember defense in the nba, then you're good, but how can anyone that was a fan in the 80's, 90's like this crap.

I gotta google who changed it, when, and why? Seriously interested in why

Latest I remember being interested in the NBA was the 90s.. Knicks vs Bulls/Pacers playoff series. That was some great stuff.

Matter of fact, any sporting event ending in a draw. It’s the dumbest thing. Where’s Herm Edwards when you need him, you play to win, not tie.


Boxing judging is just ridiculous. GGG won both fights by at least 3 rounds. Fury clearly won 9 rounds tonight. Wilder won the second 10-9 and the 9th and 12th 10-8. That's as clear as a boxing match will ever get. 115-111.

Its not only just ridiculous it is an outright fraud. They were calling for a "rematch" 1 minute after the decision. Anyone who pays for that nonsense is a fool. If you want to see it, do it creatively.


My friends and I enjoyed the fight, but I agree, we found some shady stream online and watched it that way. Speaking of paying for stuff, if anyone actually paid for that Tiger/Mickelson golf1v1 is a fool. Wtf was that


Be very careful streaming or downloading bootlegged or unauthorized content from online. I just got a legitimate email from optimum with very specific information that someone had downloaded a bootlegged copy of a movie from our home router. It was a warning, and notice that the owner could initiate legal proceedings.

After his dad took the LSU job, as a high schooler he would play against LSU players and was always the best player on the court by far.

Legendary stuff that his dad would drive him somewhere and make him dribble a basketball out the car window to improve his ball handling.

For his own part, Press Maravich, who cam eout of the coal mines of Pennsylvania, was one of the very first jump shooters and flashiest player of his time.

Creepy that Optimum is monitoring what you watch / download. You should sue THEM.

They were notified by the owner, who was monitoring a bootleg site. They alerted Optimum of the IP address that accessed the bootleg site, and the movie that was downloaded, who did not provide the complainant of our identify, but warned that the complainant could pursue legal means to protect their intellectual property. At this point, it was just a warning from Optimum about the notification.

I once received a similar notice. Except this one was from the FBI. Can't lie, scared the s*** out of me.

Michael Jordan
Oscar Robertson
LeBron James
Tim Duncan
Bill Russell

The key is that every one of these players would cut your heart out before letting their team lose.


Like your list. Would just put in Olajuwon for Duncan.
