    Outside of KG, is there anybody in the league that would try this today? Guys try too hard to be each other's friends out there.

    I too enjoyed the liberal use of the word "Homes."

    Furthermore, that's racist.

    Did this occur in the same game Bird got destroyed by Wilkins?

    The 1988 Game 7. Bird (34 pts) v. Wilkins (47 pts). Also... McHale (33 pts, 13 rbs).

    If Bird was young and playing today and tried to pull that on us, D-Mo will just go "huh? I don't... I don't understand" and shrug it off before dream shaking his way to a basket. Then Bird will probably miraculously block it while yelling homes.
