I was hoping you guys could help me out with something. One of the things that I do for my players is share bits of basketball history with them that they might not otherwise ever know. I feel like it's my responsibility to pass the stories of the past down to them. In the last couple of weeks I've posted stuff on our FB page about Michael Cooper, Muggsy Bogues, & Marvin Gaye's National Anthem at the 1983 All-Star Game.

So what are some of the stories/players that YOU would want passed down to the next generation? Remember, these kids were born between 1996-99, so if it ain't about Michael Jordan, there's a pretty good chance that they don't know much about it if it ain't happening today, so you don't have to even go that far back.
Reggie Miller vs Knicks

Bird vs Wilkins

I always enjoyed seeing the big men back in the day compete against each other. old school shaq, ewing, olajuwon, sabonis, david robinson, and mourning. it was always so physical.

Noice
Those 8 pts in under seconds 10 seconds made me a NBA fan as a kid. I can still remember watchin' it. For me, as a kid...that was the most amazing thing any player had ever done as I was growing up. Everyone loved MJ...and all his great dunks and shots...and I loved that the most. From that moment, I rooted every single year for Reggie.
If someone can access ESPN insider and pm me a copy paste of this article, I'd really appreciate that.

I hated MJ because I felt his wrath... Still do to this day. Dick pushed off and everyone knows it. Even looking for this video pisses me off.

Byron Russel should have ate his wheaties
Rudy T getting his skull smashed in by Kermit Washington and almost dying. A good lesson there. Rudy T wasn't even looking to fight, but he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Jordan pushed off?? More like a love tap. Russell got crossed over so bad, he got turned around.

Uh, no. He pushed off like a motherf**ker. But if there was any player in the world that deserved to get away with one it was him, so no whistle.

My girlfriend actually met Kermit Washington at an Office Depot a couple of weeks ago, lol. She didn't know who he was, but told me was this big, black guy named Kermit that used to play for the Lakers.

That's a good one, btw.
