Throwbows Thursday

The Original Superman

On Tuesday night Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard lost his cool and threw an elbow, earning him a one game suspension. He will be sorely missed when his teammates try to finish off the Sixers tonight in Philly. This situation got me thinking a few things…

Shaq looked good in a pinstriped Magic uni, but especially in black.
Jerseys nowadays are just too form-fitted.
Why hasn’t more been made of Dwight Howard’s hijacking of the Superman nickname?
Dude can fly, but Shaq was untouchable in his prime.
At least when Shaq lost his cool, he had enough sense to whiff…hard.

Let’s talk real throwbacks for a moment…

Wilt and Bill, two of the all time greats going at it, clean unis, color photo, long socks and short shorts. The NBA doesn’t get much better than this.

Once again we have a case of a relocated franchise. Even the Sixers are not originally from the city in which they currently reside.

That should do it for Round 1. Throwback Thursdays will return next week for some Round 2 action.

  5. […] two franchises are most commonly linked by the fact the Shaquille O’Neal played for both teams. Another link being Orlando’s team name and the name of the greatest Laker of all time. But […]
