*FLASHBACKS, my irregular "lucky dip" where I just reach into my drawers of old Australian basketball stuff and transcribe or post whatever I find for you.*

IT'S "NBA Sunday" at B.O.T.I. today, so let's jump all over The Show's fabulous history with a few of the best, and some of the lesser remembered greats.

THE BIRDMAN: Larry Bird (Boston Celtics) in full flight.

AI: Not "Artificial Intelligence" but Allen Iverson killing it for Philadelphia 76ers.

DYNASTY: Tim Duncan joins David Robinson and Gregg Popovich to build a Spurs dynasty.

McHALE'S WAVY: Celtics power forward Kevin McHale was a low-post force. 

HAND-IN-HAND: You can't talk Bill Russell without Wilt Chamberlain ... pre Bird-Magic

ORIGINAL SPLASH: Golden State superstar Rick Barry

LEAGUE LOGO: Jerry West in action for the LA Lakers. West on the dribble is the NBA logo.

ROYALTY: Jerry Lucas at Cincinnati Royals.

THE FIRST STAR CENTRE: Minneapolis Lakers pivot George Mikan was the star of a bygone era.

ROCKET MAN: Houston 7-footer Ralph Sampson always wanted to be a guard.

MAYBE THE GAME'S REAL G.O.A.T.? Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

TAKING STOCK: Karl Malone splits the D for Utah Jazz.

FLYING RAPTOR: Vince Carter doing what he did so proficiently for so long.

OOPS, ABA! NBA big man Artis Gilmore was an ABA star at Kentucky before the league folded.

PRE-BUCKS: Bob Lanier as a Detroit Piston.

BIG MAC: Bob McAdoo for two ... though not at the Lakers but in his Buffalo days.

DOING HIS THING: Dave Bing doing his thing for the Pistons.

PRE-BUCKS: Oscar Robertson was a superstar but on his own at Cincinnati Royals.

EARLY DAYS: Dolph Schayes airborne for Syracuse Nationals.

MY PERSONAL G.O.A.T. Wilt Chamberlain fires over his great adversary Bill Russell.
