  1. I'm born and bred Chicago! But I used to love this particular match up as a kid because they hated each other and it showed on the court.

  2. I was cheering when PJ Brown throw Chris Childs on the floor. Chris Childs used to always start fights. I wanted someone to pop him in his face one good time

  3. Look how much better SportsCenter was man. It stinks now. I can't get through 5 minutes, I'd rather read the news now.

  4. Dang! If only the Knicks played against the Bulls in the conference finals. Smh that series would be a dog fight!

  5. Van Gundy is a moron. PJ Brown picking on your little guy? Your little guy tried to wipe out PJs knees. Ward was lucky that all PJ did was rag-doll him.

  6. 5:17 He's stating that they didn't start it because he saw Brown bodyslamming Ward. FIRST OF ALL, HE PICKED HIM UP AND THREW HIM RETARD WHY U THINK U HAVE A SAY IN THIS WHEN U SAW BROWN BODYSLAMMING. GET YOUR EYES FIXED. THEN TALK. WARD WAS LITERALLY PUSHING HIS KNEES TRYING TO TAKE THEM OUT FROM UNDER HIM.
