Thank You NBA
I have been an avid basketball and NBA fan since before I can remember, and I have supported the League and its players during the good days and the bad ones. You could undoubtedly call me a die-hard fan, and I have followed and will follow this fabled Association for years to come. And for the joy in competition and loyalty that I have gotten out of the National Basketball Association, I would like to say thank you.
Thank you for Earvin "Magic" Johnson, a player who was never short on excitement in his five-title career. At 6'9, Magic had the skill to play every position on the basketball court as he showed in his rookie season in the NBA Finals. When Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was down with an injury, Magic stood in his place at center-and throughout that game against the Sixers he played every position- posting 42 points 15 rebounds and 7 assists and 3 steals. I hope, like many, that Johnson's health will continue to be healthy.
Thank you for Larry Joe Bird, the greatest shooter to ever put on an NBA uniform. Larry could shoot the lights out from every place on the court, living proof that if you practice hard enough, you'd be able to play better than any other man on the court, even if you couldn't jump higher than them, run faster than them, or move quicker than them. As his three championships say for themselves, his Celtics, led by him along with mainstays Kevin McHale and Robert Parish, were a constant force during the Celtics-Lakers rivalry in the 80's.
Thank you for Michael Jordan, the greatest player of all time in the NBA. The hardest working player in the league during the late 80's and the 90's who dominated early winning the Rookie of the Year honors in '85 for the struggling Chicago Bulls. His Airness was aptly named; the smooth slam dunks that were delivered in-game and in dunk contests were constant acts of wonders for fans. The six championships explain much of MJ's legacy-with great player Scottie Pippen as his sidekick, 'chips rained in like his turnaround fadeaway J.
Thank you for Kevin Garnett, a mad man in the sense that everything he does is competitive. Garnett brings an air to the game that there's somebody on the court who NEEDs a victory and he will show it-by way of scream, chest-thumo and taunt.
Thank you for Allen Iverson, a man who, whether you like it or not, brought street basketball culture to the slightly sheltered Association along with a devastating game. Iverson brought freezers full of ice to the press conferencesbut his game is somewhat overshadowed the frowned-upon culture that was imminent in this popular establishment.
Thank you for players like Nate robinson and Spud Webb, men at least five-inches shorter than the next who will dunk on (or block) 7-foot big men. Thank you for players like Rasheed Wallace, Dennis Rodman and Ron Artest, men who run their mouth without care leaving us puzzled, laughing or crying often all at the same time.
Thank you for players like Rodney Stuckey and Leon Powe, scrappy men who give it their all every time they step on the court, earning minutes and respect. Thank you for players like Kwame Brown, Sam Bowie and Michael Olowokandi, hyped-up guys who were drafted high but never lived up to it. And especially, thank you for the ones who do...
