This was a real treat. As a pretty huge fan of 1980's and 90's NBA I found myself smirking whilst reading this verse. Tributes to Dominique and Jordan and the mere mention of Spud Webb, the flattop, Kenny "Sky" Walker, and the tomahawk dunk had this reader bleary-eyed, knee deep in nostalgia, and pining for glory days that live only in memory.
