I didn't realize I already passed the 6000. So at 6075 I'll be posting my third celebration thread. Did it at 1000, and now 6000. Next probably will be the 500 random things which have kept me watching the NBA year after year @ 7500. I did the 99 things and added #100 @ 1000 posts.
I add to these lists every week, when I remember stuff, stumble upon things or read/hear about them. Reading back I see things I already forgot on earlier lists. Maybe I repeated myself once or twice, but **** happens.
Well, here we go...
My 350 random things which have kept me watching the NBA year after year. Bad and good things.... 101-200

146. Alonzo getting his ring.
147. Alozno & LJ fight. And van Gundy.

161. Shaq choking Eric Montross.
162. The Rockets Championship squad being incredibly good.
163. Pippen/Barkley hopping on the wagon and missing out. Just like Malone and Payton.

177. Speaking of which: Serge Zwikker, Geert Hammink, Rik Smits, Hank Beenders, Sven Nater, Dan Gadzuric, Franisco Elson. With Elson actually being the first Dutch player in the NBA which I like.
178. The 94 rookie class. Glenn, Kidd, Hill and other very good players without two identical letters at the end of their name.
179. Players who didn't do as much as I thought they could've done: Augmon, Walt Williams, Owens to name a few from the mid-90's.
180. Dorell Wright becoming the next Darius Miles/Tim Thomas.
181. Francisco Garcia and Childress being able to break out a la Kevin Martin/Monta Ellis if they would get the chance and touches. Actually, IMO Garcia and Childress are both better on Defense.
182. Pietrus with the Heat. Brand too. Rookie, Wade, Pietrus, Brand. Elson at center would be nice. Is Pietrus a free agent? Ah well...no way Marion will opt out.
183. TMacs second round experience.
184. Players I totally dislike: Marion, Reggie Miller, any Knicks player, Dunleavy, Bibby.

189. Robert Horry looking about the same as he did in 92.
190. Michael Cage's hair. And how he never gets mentioned on ISH.
191. Waiting for the Suns nteam to get blown up. Nash & Amare & Shaq won't get them nowhere.
192. I miss the good old fights. Which is your favorite?
193. Upper Deck Collector's Choice cards with Golden Signatures. From the first series.
194. Adam Morrison breaking out. Right?
195. Who have been the biggest ******* in the NBA?
196. Did any player ever wear 66?
197. Dave Bing playing at such a high level while: almost getting blinded in one eye as a kid after falling on a nail. And returning to play after almost getting his retina detached during an nba game.
198. Charles Oakley punching then Clipper McInnis because of a personal dispute. And that being while Oakley was on the court holding a ball, and McInnis being in a courtside seat.
199. Rodman getting a six game suspension for headbutting a ref. How many games would it get you nowadays?
200. It's better than soccer.
