its kind of funny that you remembered something that never happened (unless you count playoff points too)... must mean you are really getting old... haha jk

Beasly was a teenager when Wade got into the NBA. So saying "I grew up watching him", especially considering he hasn't grown up, is retarded.

I'm an NBA vet at 21.

Yeah I'm the same age and it's so weird now seeing Shaq as a 36 year old player considering I remember him as a member of the Magic. Seeing guys like Penny and C-Webb being out of the league, Shaq, Grant Hill and Jason Kidd in the twighlight of their career seems very weird. I wouldn't be surprised though if Mutombo and Mourning are still be playing when I'm 30.

I started watching the NBA in about 1993 so it sounds like you started watching around the same time.

It seems only yesterday that Chris Webber, Penny and company were rookies. How time flies... next thing you know you'll be 30.

Does anyone remember that huge brawl in the 94 playoffs between the Hawks and Heat? Just wondering, cause when people talk about huge NBA brawls, they point to the Bulls-Knicks, Heat-Knicks, Pistons-Pacers, butnever to this one. I've never heard anyone reminisce on this brawl. It started when someone from the Hawks dunked on Grant Long and started screaming in his face. Then Grant Long just started choking him. Chaos ensued, and then when it seemed to be over and everyone seemed to have settled down, some Hawk benchwarmer ran up to some Heat player and started clocking him in the back of the head.

I watched Bird/McHale/Parish play. I remember watching Joe Dumars cover Jordan in the playoffs, and now he's a fat front-office guy. So many coaches and office guys now I remember watching them play: Doc Rivers, Del Negro, Avery Johnson, Scott Skiles, McHale, Bird, Ainge, Chapman, Chris Mullin...the list goes on forever.

I remember Vernon Maxwell running into the stands and punching a fan in I think 94. Mad Max was awesome.

I remember seeing Reggie's 8 points in 9 seconds LIVE, and when he stole the inbounds going "damn, he shoved Anthony down.....HOLY ****!!"

The worst call in sports history, the LJ 4 point play.

Jordan dropping 55 on the Knicks in like his 5th game back.

MJ clutching the Larry O'Brien trophy while lying on the floor of the locker room after his dad was murdered.

Ewing bricking the gimme fingerroll against Indy in the 94 playoffs. Those Knicks/Pacers series were AWESOME.

Rik Smits's headfake and buzzer beater over Tree Rollins to tie the series against Orlando in 95.

Hakeem absolutely DESTROYING an MVP David Robinson in the 95 playoffs.
