    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.

    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.
