You a.ssume you watch more NBA then me because you have NBA tv? The f**k kind of logic is that? It's 2011 most people have NBA tv. I've had league pass for years and I watch around 12-17 NBA games per week. Also I never heard KD and Bosh had dinner together all star weekend, whats your source for that one? Kobe defended KG because thats what hes supposed to do, its the mature thing to do. Same reason Lebron won't publicly say a bad thing about the individual players on the Celtics. But if you actually watch the games and you are even half-way-decent at analyzing human emotion, it's pretty clear that they are just taking the politically correct route when addressing the subject in interviews, etc.
The Magic/Bird rivalry started in college, yes, but what is it remembered for? Most people couldn't even tell you what colleges they want to, but EVERYONE thats even a CASUAL sports fan knows where they played in the pros. When was that rivalry most entertaining? Exactly.
