Two that I laughed at when I read about them:
The Celtics were playing the Pistons and Larry Bird was killing Dennis Rodman early in the game. Bird says to the Pistons coaching staff “you guys are a man short because no one is guarding me.”
Kind of funny in itself but Bird went as far as to pretend Dennis did not exist for the rest of the game pushing it over the top.
Michael Jordan was guarding Lindsey Hunter during his (I believe) second season. It was a play clearly designed for Grant Hill. Mike sees it coming and says, “Hey F*ck Grant. You should shoot it. You were drafted to replace Isiah Thomas. Isiah would shoot it. Go ahead. If you pass it Scottie just going to block Grant’s shot anyway.”
The indecisiveness was obvious on Hunter’s face. He ended up messing up the timing of the play passing to Grant too late. Grant caught the ball and basically had no time to maker a play.
Needless to say Mike says “I told you to shoot”. Hunter looked confused the rest of the game.
