Yes, there is. In HS I played catcher, pitched a little and first base. By college I only played first base and I missed nothing about catching other than being able to talk sheet to the batters and anyone who could hear me.There is always another game going on besides the game on the court. It happens in every sport. And even in life.

I swear I once made a parent come unglued out of the stands my senior year in HS by being so far in her son's head. She was so upset by what I was doing to him that she actually complained to the principal of our school. My coach, a former big league pitcher of some merit thought it was awesome. He told me that a good catcher is as important to a pitcher as 4 days rest.
I can’t even imagine.......
It was a totally different NBA back then (late 80's even into the 90's). Common fouls back then would be disqualifications and game suspensions today. Most of the great players were trash talkers and intimidators and most of them didn't like each other (at least on the court) and that often got physical....IMO today's NBA is no where near as intense, much of the physical play has been eliminated...??.......”Mamba Mentality” ????!!!!
I am disappointed to read & hear some of the cruel comments that MJ made along the way, and shocked, actually........but it goes with the territory, I suppose???
Just like that story Shaq told about talking to Kobe Bryant about never sharing the ball, and Shaq said, “there is no ‘I’ in team.” And Kobe replied, “yeah, but there is a ‘me’ in that #%^*€#%!” So Shaq went back to the other teammates and said, “you are going to have to catch it on the rebound, he ain’t passin’ the ball”. ???
Both my boys played soccer, HS and high level travel....there are all kinds of things that go on that shock parents who weren't athletes at some level....throw in an incompetent/hungover ref and things can get ugly....quick....fortunately we only had a few matches like that....And it happens at age levels you wouldn't expect. My son has been playing soccer since he was 7, starting in rec, then club, middle school and high school. The trash talking really ramped up in middle school and club levels. In one game I saw one of his teammates bow up at an opponent, and my son say something to the opponent too. Then they start chasing the ball down the field and my son and his teammate absolutely wipe out the kid. Like steamrolled him and I was thinking what the hell was that all about. They both got yellows. After the game he told us the kid called his teammate the n-word(kid was from Nigeria), so they taught him some manners. I was like, "huh, good job".
Not a fan of Phil Jackson, but you have to give him credit....his substitution patterns were really on point, of course having great depth helps but he knew who to put in...when....That 3 headed monster that the Bulls would roll out (Cartwright, Purdue, Klein, Longley), not a damn star between them, but they were effective when rotated.
Why not a fan of Phil Jackson???Not a fan of Phil Jackson, but you have to give him credit....his substitution patterns were really on point, of course having great depth helps but he knew who to put in...when....
Never liked the Bulls, was a Celtics/Bullets/Wizards fan....Also couldn't stand the Lakers....not a fan doesn't mean I don't recognize how great he was....Why not a fan of Phil Jackson???
I was reading a story last night that came up on my news feed, about him. Even though Jackson is low key now & stays out of the limelight, he is very helpful in mentoring other coaches, that want his help.
Nick Nurse, from the Raptors, went to see Jackson at his place in Montana, and he ended up staying for 3 days!!! They went over film, discussed different problems etc etc etc
Doc Rivers was just in disbelief at how calmly & how well Jackson handled some incredibly precarious situations.
I wasn't familiar with what you're referring to so I did a search.He made comments about New Orleans after Katrina (when the league was trying to play games in New Orleans again), and it didn’t sit well with me.
Back then this would've made me mad too. I also wasn't a Phil Jackson fan.On the first NBA game in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina: "Hopefully they've drained the mud out of the building and the termites aren't going to eat the building away by the time we get down there."
