Rick Barry was disrespectful to Bill Russell when they were commenting on a game in the 80's... I don't have the link on me right now.

I saw the video. He called Russell a "fool with a watermelon smile."

Barry and the other guy were showing pics of Russell from his earlier days to basically tease Russell. But I think Barry took it far.

Russell looked uncomfortable and Barry just wouldn't let it go.

That was one awkward moment in sports broadcast history.

LeBron probably owns (or, at least, owned) like half of this list...

Well the guy in your avatar said that he doesn't mind the Bosh Spice name personally, but he doesn't like it because it disrespects his last name and his whole family and ancestors.
