Default I'm getting old

I'm only twenty-one, yet remember when Jason Kidd and Grant Hill were rookies. I also remember the day Clyde Drexler was traded to Houston. I remember Jordan's comeback game against the Pacers. I remember when Vin Baker was actually an All-Star. I remember the NBA at 50 list being announced.

I'm an NBA vet at 21.

That wasn't funny. Alcoholism is a serious problem. I was hoping Vin could turn around his career, he was a beast in Milwaukee. I loved his game

Nothing made me feel older then when Michael Beasley said at his Heat introductory press conference that he grew up watching Dwyane Wade play.

Damn.

I remember watching the game where Isaiah Thomas scored his twenty-thousandth career point. I know Doc Rivers more for being a teammate of 'Nique. I owned a pair of the first Air Jordans. Steve Coulter was one of my favorite players. Two words Kelly Tripucka . Does anyone else remember when Mike Dunleavy(Sr.) was a player? :)

It was only a matter of time. Webster wears #8 because of Kobe btw.

The first series I remember was 1990 Blazers/Pistons. I was about 6 and my dad was really into the Blazers. Thats how it all started for me. I also started my basketball card collection when we lost. I literally ran up and down the streets picking up torn up Blazer cards and taped them back together. To this day, I still have a huge card collection and 2 of my favorites are a wrinkled up with a pencil-sized hole Cliff Robinson rookie card and a completely ripped in half, but taped back together card of Danny Young (thats right, Danny Young).

Not on that day, but I think I have a Holton card somewhere. I also attended Holton's basketball camp at University of Portland when I was younger. His son and I were the two best players and were always assigned to play each other. He could really rain threes but I had him beat. Although, I think I was at least a year older than him.

I do, and I remember Ramon Ramos (from that other thread where you asked it).
