KoB2011 Posted January 31 Report Share Posted January 31 No, this isn't a political thread about Ronald Reagan, the Berlin Wall, Soviet Russia, or even JFK and the Bay of Pigs. This... this is a thread were certain members can wax poetic about how great sports were in yesteryear - back before advanced analytics ruined the game, before widespread video coverage of all games, and back when real teams played real basketball with motion offense and the midrange jumper. Teams would occasionally use the dang backboard on their jump shots. It's a beautiful style of play that has led many members of HSN to dominate their church league games. First topic of discussion - 1987 Indiana Hoosiers led by the beautiful Steve Alford vs the 1985 Villanova Wildcats. 'Nova may not have had the beautiful Jay Wright roaming the sidelines just yet, but they had E-Z Ed Pinckney dominating teams as they took a magic Cinderella run to the title. I'll go with the Hoosiers in this battle of greats - I just don't think Nova would've had an answer for the raw athleticism that Steve Alford possessed. 1 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
