That was the only time in my life I have been a bandwagon fan. To be perfectly honest it was because the Celtics had a handful of white guys that could really play. Black guys just dominated the sport. Right or wrong that was the reason I started following Boston and the NBA for that matter. I found myself reading the newspaper, catching highlights and watching the games when I could. I never really watched the NBA growing up. I followed football and boxing, the two sports I was pretty good at.

In high school I would play pickup games with several black guys I knew from the football team and the guys that played varsity basketball for our high school. I would marvel at how damn much better they were than I was. The boys and girls both went unbeaten one year, there was not a white starter on the team. It was really cool to see white guys play at the top level and do well. Not long after Bird retired I lost my interest in the game again. I would still watch the Bulls when they were winning titles from time to time, because Jordan was simply amazing. Slowly I just stopped watching all together. Those highlights bring a smile to my face, it was a fun time~
