And 75 years later, players would get in fights over who wasn't on the all-time list.

First they made the shorts longer, then they left town. I haven't seen a basketball game since.

It peaked with Jordan. Don't pay much attention anymore.

I have been lucky to be alive to watch Michael.Showtime Lakers.  And Shaq. And Kobe. And Lebron. The removal of a racist as an owner and seeing Balmer really making a go of a team in Lakers Nation.  And a lot of kids still coming up. Basketball was one of the very few things my old man and me had. And he loved the Clippers almost as much as Billy Crystal. The point I am trying to make is it has not peaked. It keeps getting better.
