Bread City Basketball


Warmup windbreakers tearing, assistant coaches flying everywhere. Greg Anthony snuffs KJ, and still keeps his silk shirt fresh, pre-dress code. Starks does his signature fight move, a.k.a forehead-to-forehead trash talking. Even Rolando Blackman gets up off the bench looking for some, so you know it’s good.

At the time, Phoenix and New York were the two best teams in their respective divisions. The league handed out $160,000 in fines.

The brawl doesn’t really get going until the 4:00 minute mark, but it’s worth watching the fight-before-the-fight, if only to see how funny Danny Ainge looks when he’s mad.

Gotta love the clean deco lines on that 90s Suns court design.

I was at this game. Greg Anthony was and is a punk. And the shirt he was wearing was hideous!

Comment by Michael

notice how riley never comes in to stop players from fighting unlike westphal or van gundy.. is it coz of the armani suit? don’t know why he trains players to be thugs, when he wasn’t one while being on the lakers bench in his playing days, unlike rambis.. the knicks should’ve been a real powerhouse even during the jordan days if only they had a real coach and not the whiner within..

Comment by mole

Comment by Tom

15+ years later, KJ is the mayor of Sacramento and Greg Anthony is still a tacky bum who makes a living sitting around running his mouth.

Comment by Kevin Conroy

Comment by chris

I remember this. I remember watching it live and jerrod mustaf was trying to throw and hit anyone he could, hes the one who comes flying in at the 4:28 mark and throws the guy at like the 4:37 mark. classic

WOW ITS AMAZING HOW BIAS THESE ANNOUNCERS ARE UNBELIEVABLE that was a moving pick and two elbows into rivers andyone who thinks he started that is kidding themselves the first fight maybe but the second no way

Comment by Missthisnba

The 90s ball is far more superior than the ball of today. You watch NBA Finals today and you yawn out of boredom. You used to watch an indifferent regular reason game in the 90s and you would be excited either due to spectacle or due to adrenalin.

Comment by chris

Knicks were my team. Like they said we were either going to win the game or win the fight! The 90’s were the golden years of the NBA. Today is a bunch of flopping pussies. David Stern has killed it after these guys built it for him. You could get this kind of excitement anytime anywhere, now it takes the perfect storm to get half this excitement in even a finals game. They should just replay 90’s games non-stop in place of today’s NBA & give royalty checks to those players instead of raises to these clowns now.

I was at this game and loved seeing the action, 2012-13 suns just might have a little of this attitude at least I’m hoping so.

I know this web site offers quality dependent articles or
reviews and additional material, is there any other website which provides these kinds of things in quality?

Comment by Margene

Whenever possible, search for cups stores who would get ready to
talk with you over the phone to supply you their particular assistance.
In regions of bright light, cones supply obvious,
pointed core vision and detect colours and great details.
