I'm going to die on the hill of sportsmanship. It should never go out of style, and I hope it stages a revival as time goes by. Maybe this will leave enough of a bad taste in people's mouths. These women are old enough that they should know better.I wouldn't brush off the end of game antics as quickly as you. I have no idea of any back story between the two, but both of them have to take some responsibility for being ambassadors for growing the game exponentially like they have the chance to do.
Seeing it all had me wanting to see the Bird Magic national championship and see if there was anything like what we saw yesterday. They had a rivalry, but I don't remember any overt disrespect like yesterday. I'm not sure if either of them appreciated in their youth how important they were in rescuing the NBA, but their talent and rivalry saved a nearly dying league. These two could easily replicate that if they play their cards right. Can't wait to see them on a national team together soon.
"This was for the girls that look like me." I'm going to go full 'get off my lawn' by further saying that we don't have to relitigate segregation and persecution on the basketball court. In fact, the field of competition has been the great societal mixer since our sports were integrated, and statements like that only serve to take us backward. It might sound like justice to some, but to me it sounds like going backward.
