LOL...crazy right???

I'm actually not sure if he's giving an injured Michael Cooper "The Bird"....but he's definitely doing something. On second thought, he might just be waving at him, it's hard to tell.

What's crazy is how the camera zooms in on the 16-year old, like they knew who he was or something. He gives one last look at the former NBA defensive player of the year, but it was too late...Cooper was no where to be seen. (lol)

People always talk about

People always talk about Micheal Cooper's defensive skills....But they forgot he served as Magic's backup at times...He was really versatile......Cooper's presence in the lineup,relieved Magic of some of the playmaking and Magic to have some big scoring games....

must of been nice

I've read his Book of Basketball and I know Simmons's life at home wasn't perfect growing up, but I'll be damned if there is anything much cooler than having the season tickets that him and his dad had while growing up, watching one of the greatest teams in one of the greatest eras of basketball.

Is it just me?

I always thought Simmons was kind of a Boston-biased, annoying douche. Of course, I generally don't think anything good can come out of Boston, but I think I'm justified on this one.
