    Is Baylor really underrated? When he retired, he was generally acknowledged at the greatest forward ever. He was basically the LeBron James of his day.

  2. Neil Paine Says:

    True, but for whatever reason, today it seems like people criticize him unfairly for his lack of a championship, especially given the awful timing of his retirement (the day before the 33-game W streak began).

    Are you guys aware Team Game Finder is *not* returning results when Game Type=playoffs is selected?

    I was trying to get a list of playoff games between SAS & LAL from 2000-01 thru 2008-09. TGF returned a blank page. Ditto Heat/Bulls.

    TGF is a great feature; just like all the other BR-unique features under Play Index. Am I doing something wrong? Just asking.

    I'd still be hard-pressed to start another forward ahead of Baylor on any team. Of course, I saw him play.

    Anybody who doesn't subscribe to KBlaze's youtube page shouldn't be allowed to blog about basketball. The guy is the best highlight producer out there.
