    I am shocked that PV hasn't had his pants sued off of him with all the haymakers he has reportedly thrown.

    I'm guessing the people he covers have more important things to worry about and they know nobody takes the guy that seriously.

    It's a disgrace he's in the Hall.

    Would gladly check out the Basketball Hall of Fame for John Stockton and C. Vivian Stringer.

    Michael Jordan? Pass. Peter Vecsey? Not only pass, but his brother is also a much better writer and an infinitely better person.

    The majority of the people knocking Vecsey on this board couldn't get into all of the places he has worked on a guided tour, much less the Hall of Fame.

    The jealousy is absolutely pathetic. Get a life.

    Pete, you're assuming all of us give a shit about where you've been. I couldn't fucking care any less.

    Because you undoubtedly have intimate knowledge of the CVs of all the posters here.

    I've NEVER been a big fan of Vecsey. Sure, he's gotten a nice share of scoops, but he's thrown out atleast thrice as much crap that has been so off base.

    He's far from a "top notch" NBA journalist, and shouldn't even be mentioned in McCallum's or Ryan's league.

    Yahoo.com has a column blasting MJ's speech as well. Made some valid points. Jordan actually told his kids, "I'd hate to be you." My gosh. MJ had a bad night as well. Said many NBA players in crowd were amazed at MJ's lack of class.

    I'm surprised I couldn't find a thread on the entire show. I thought MJ's speech was bad, but I expected it to be.

    MJ's showing his true colors. Yet another example of people thinking the guy in the commercials is like that in real life.

    Call it Tiger Woods, Brett Favre, Michael Jordan syndrome. Perfect on TV, insufferable douches in real life.
