thanks for hanging, everyone. what a fun game of basketball.
[Charania] New name and trophies for NBA’s major individual awards: - MVP: The Michael Jordan Trophy - DPOY: Hakeem Olajuwon Trophy - ROY: Wilt Chamberlain Trophy - Sixth Man of Year: John Havlicek Trophy - Most Improved: George Mikan Trophy - New Clutch Player of Year: Jerry West Trophy
For example, some that I believe:
David Stern was plugged into how bad MJ’s gambling problems had gotten and he had some very bad people after him at the time. He told MJ to “retire” from basketball temporarily and go play baseball to let the situation settle down.
The Patrick Ewing draft lottery was rigged. The envelope containing NY’s name was bashed against the side of the tumbler so David Stern could feel around and find it. NBA wanted to bring Ewing to New York.
What is a NBA conspiracy theory that you believe?
