    I refuse to give si clicks and I cancelled my subscription when they put a soccer player on the cover the week the Rockets won #1. You know if the outcome had been different the Knicks would have been on the cover. Screw si.

    I get you but putting a football player is so much better than putting some overweight fake tough guy egg ball player.

    You have to realize that back then there was si and Sport Magazine. No internet to speak of. I had subscribed from when I was a wee lad and every year they put the new NBA champion on the cover as they did with every major sport. But not the Rockets. si can lick me.

    I still remember that incident clearly and getting pissed. I also bought the commemorative issue when it was later released. I bought it again the next year when we beat the Magic. I was paying them with my allowance since my parents to watch sports.

    Yeah, it was annoying but holding a grudge for 20 years is a bit much don't you think?

    I'm a younger guy, but yeah SI has always rubbed me the wrong way. Plus, between the internet and CF I can get 1,000 different takes on an issue than what an author of an SI story is trying to make you believe.
