  • Which NBA players get remembered for the wrong reasons?
  • What’s the most important NBA Championship?
  • Who had the better big-name game under duress?
  • Which NBA player’s legacy is the most greatly affected if we give him the Championship he never won?
  • And many more!

Then you’ll love what Serrano has to say about the game you love, the team you love, and the players past and present who have made the NBA the greatest show in sports for decades. Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Steph Curry, Wilt Chamberlain, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Allen Iverson, Patrick Ewing, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: They are all here.
