I'm an avid basketball player even at my age. Love it. Respect it. It's chess at full speed with strategy and all. But I miss the days when basketball teams had to earn that respect of being deemed champions through hard, tough, sweat-breaking team work. Nowadays, as with Miami Heat, teams simply go out and buy a bunch of superstars (so to speak) and pile them onto their team. That's not a team. That's ticket salesmanship. I miss the old days of the NY Knicks, Boston Celtics, LA Lakers, Chicago Bulls, Phoenix Suns, Detroit Pistons, etc. These guys really were championship material.
