Quoted @NBACobwebs

Bill Russell of CBS asked Seattle's Dennis Johnson if he'd be guarding Billy Ray Bates in Game 2 of the 1980 playoff series between the Sonics and Blazers, after Bates had scored 29 points for Portland in Game 1.

The final exchange between Russell and DJ is priceless.

Through the first 17 games of his NBA career, Billy Ray Bates had become so popular in Portland that Brent Musburger told him "the ministers now are making their sermons about you on Sunday."

James Harden has scored or assisted 129 points in two games with the @BrooklynNets. Since the franchise joined the #NBA in 1976, the only #Nets player with more points scored or assisted than @JHarden13 over a two-game span was Stephon Marbury (134 in 2001). #BrooklynTogether

The NBA and ABA are two different leagues.

The Nets is one franchise that started in the ABA and then was merged into the NBA.

So if you say "Nets franchise history" that includes ABA stats, which neither @ESPNNBA or (ridiculously) the @BrooklynNets themselves didn't recognize.

My favorite reaction to this shoving match might be that of Khalid Reeves, who just isn’t having any of it.
