Pro basketball is anathema to the game itself. Pro basketball is all about money, about 1-on-1 showboating, what the heck is defense, what is a set play (with a couple of teams that run sets), half the league makes the playoffs, shoes, and did I mention…Money.
I hardly ever notice, let alone talk about the pro game. Not worth the time of day. However…every rule, law, statute, regulation has exceptions.
AI – Allen Iverson, Mr. “What we talkin’ ’bout, Practice!” was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame yesterday, along with Shaquille “Shaq” O’Neal, and Yao Ming. This is an exception to the rule.
