Next Sunday’s All Star Game will mark the 15 year anniversary of my favorite starting line up of all time – Michael Jordan, Penny Hardaway, Scottie Pippen, Shaquille O’Neal and Grant Hill. Two are in the Hall of Fame (with one considered the GOAT), two are still playing and one is an all star – a rec league all star.
I’ll always be a fan of Anfernee because of how entertaining he was in the mid ’90s; not to mention his role in Blue Chips. And given the way many pro athletes carry themselves after hanging it up, there’s nothing wrong with staying in shape and staying out of trouble. Plus, he actually seems to be enjoying himself. Instead of cracking a joke here and there, I’ll salute him for his game winner, double-double and keeping the J&L Express undefeated.
How many of his teammates you think he had to give a ride home after the game though? Aight, I’m done.
