In case you missed it but a while back Project Spurs' Michael De Leon wrote on how the NBA online store was selling San Antonio Spurs 1998 NBA Championship t-shirts. Needless to say, the Spurs won their first title in 1999 and not 1998.
Since then, the link to the erroneous shirt has been taken down but to add insult to injury, the NBA store actually sent one to our good friend Jason Minnix of 1250 ESPN's "The Blitz" after he purchased it.
Jason and I were a bit surprised the NBA sent him the shirt or perhaps they might have corrected the error. Instead, he has in his hands a nice collectors item and "proof" the Spurs won five titles including the closest the Spurs came to winning "back-to-back titles" in '98 and '99.

Tracy McGrady has retired which means he now heads into the phase where he gets to say things.
There's no arguing that in his prime -- and when healthy -- McGrady was as good a pure scorer as the game has ever seen. His combination of size speed athleticism and perimeter touch made him maybe the toughest cover in the league.
And during an interview with Fox Sports Radio via...
Tracy McGrady was one of the most elite scorers in the NBA during his relatively short-lived prime. He averaged 26.1 points per game over an eight-year span with the Orlando Magic and Houston Rockets, but injuries sent his career downhill in a hurry. Despite that, T-Mac recently hinted that he believes he was as good […]
With the sun having officially set on the career of Tracy McGrady with his recent retirement, the question now arises: how exactly are basketball fans supposed to remember him?
