Schayes: In the NBA, Sometimes You Can Go Home Again

Leave a comment

Last week, stars Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett played a road game. But not just any road game. Pierce Garnett

It was perhaps the most significant road game of their careers.

The future Hall of Famers returned for the first time to basketball-bonkers Boston, the city where they won hearts and championships. The former Celtics were given a warm welcome that included video tributes and had an emotional evening.

In this era of free agency, many players have a similar experience. They move from a place where they have been a fixture and get to return to their previous home for the first time.

Bernucca: Is LeBron Better than Jordan? Read This Before Answering

Remember that streak of games hot-shooting LeBron James put together last February?LeBron James

Well, he’s doing it again. Much earlier in the season. And for a longer stretch.

stocktonnashDuring Gary Payton’s interview with Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports, the point guard brought up a very debatable topic: strictly speaking for himself, he believed John Stockton was harder to guard than Michael Jordan.

Many would disagree with this notion on simple logic alone. Who sounds more difficult to guard? A 6’1″, 170-pound point guard or a 6’6″, 200 pound shooting guard? Obviously, though, size does not define the skill level of a player, and we are talking about one of the greatest point guards of all-time in Stockton. But then again, we are also talking about the greatest player of all-time (to many) in Jordan.

How do you rank Michael Jordan’s career achievement list?

The answer: It’s nearly impossible.

The G.O.A.T., as he’s so often referred to (by those who never saw Wilt Chamberlain play) has done so much for the game that ranking his performances simply doesn’t do justice to his illustrious career.

SH Blog: Paul George’s confidence rising, Nash gets 10,000th assist

Paul George has always had it in him.

That’s why despite going to Fresno State, a relatively small school that’s part of the Mountain West Conference, and deciding to turn pro after just his sophomore season, the Indiana Pacers selected him 10th overall in the 2010 draft.
