And Another Thing

The invention of the cheap shot

So I've been following all the hoo-hah and carnival barking about Andrew Bynum's vicious elbow-plant of Dallas' guard J.J. Berea, and about Bynum's ghost-written robo-apology, and I'm thinking surely nothing this heinous has ever happened before on a basketball floor, given the way the old-timers are going on and on about it.

And then, of course, I come upon this.

Which, naturally, is not remembered as the crime of the century, but is instead remembered merely as the pivotal moment in one of those classic 1980s Celtics-Lakers wars.

Hmmm.
